18th meeting: Games for Cities

Published at: 11 October 2019

Games for Cities: Building synergies between games, complexity, simulation, planning and design
7-8 November, 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal. 

The 18th meeting of our Thematic Group aspires to provide platform where interdisciplinary crossovers among policy-making, games, urban design, simulation, analytical models and other digital technologies can harness urban complexity by interlocking theory and practice in planning.

The diversity in city games is growing and presenters will:

  • showcase how games can promote future cities,
  • analyse critical conditions for successful application of games
  • evaluate how games can provide grip on the intrinsic complex nature of cities.

Prof. Juval Portugali, amongst others know from his books on Complexity, Cognition and Cities, will deliver a keynote speech. A second keynote will be delivered by Dr. Ekim Tan, the founder of Play the City and expert of serious game for urban development.
