The conference will critically address the smart city agenda, and investigate the role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in marginalised communities at a range of global contexts. 

Taking the right to the city as a framework, the symposium investigates the question ‘Whose Right to the (Smart) City’? It addresses a gap in current knowledge exchange and seeks to redress the balance of focus from the existing highly urbanised, first-world contexts to concentrate on more marginalised urban communities and people-centred urban change in relation to ICTs.

The conference will examine how and why cities and people are shaping technologies to suit their needs and the role of civic inclusiveness in this process, and will draw on knowledge and perspectives from marginalised city contexts at a range of geographical levels including developing world countries.

Keynotes: Ayona Datta, Kings College London and Tim Davies, Open Data Services Cooperative.
