What do Chicago, Helsinki, Sacramento, Corpus Christi, Lucerne and
Minneapolis have in common? They are all well on their way to making
municipal wireless networks a reality in their community.
The University of Minnesota, the Metropolitan Design Center and Digital
Water-shed announce the second "Wireless Cities. Communities of
Interests" conference, to be held April 16 &17, 2007 at the University
of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus, Minneapolis, MN.
We have sent you this Call for Interest because you are part of a
community that we believe would be interested and interesting to be
included in the discussion. The Wireless Cities conference will bring together educators, researchers, project coordinators, funders, community activists and policy-makers to discuss the implications of wireless communities. Identifying opportunities and consider-ing obstacles are critical to realizing innovative and effective use of regional wireless networks. If you are interested in the impact municipal wireless networks will have on the arts, education, governance, neighborhoods and policies then the Wireless Cities conference is an event you won't want to miss.
Please take a few minutes to fill out a short online survey. We will
craft the conference agenda based on responses. You can use this
conference as an opportunity to hear from various stakeholders about the impact of municipal wireless networks and to showcase your own projects.
