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 Digital Media Center, Digital Technology
Center, Institute for New Media Studies, the Metropolitan Design
Center, and Digital Watershed announce the second “Wireless
Cities Conference … Communities of Interests,” to be held
April 16 & 17, 2007 at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities
Campus, Minneapolis, MN.
Wireless Cities will bring together educators, researchers, project
coordinators, funders, community activists and policy-makers to
discuss the implications of wireless communities. Identifying the
opportunities and considering the 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 future trends
then the Wireless Cities conference is an event you won’t want
