Format & Expectations

1st day morning

Selected participants will present the contributions they have submitted for selection, and working groups (WGs) will be formed (3 to 5 multidisciplinary WGs).


 1st day afternoon

With the afternoon of the first day WGs a brainstorming and possibly design process aimed to target 'Learning in the Smart Cities of the future' according to the workshop introduction will start.

[One possibility (depending on time available) will be to consider Villard-de-Lans as case study to design a possible future smart village]


2nd day

The second working day is expected to produce viable future visions and concepts.


3rd day morning

The first half of the working day will be an open day intended to involve participants of other ARV13 workshops in the discussion and design process to explore how their specific interests and ideas could support the learning in the future smart cities. 

[The theme of the workshop, in fact, requires an holistic design approach and, therefore, either a great predisposition to listen and the ability in managing a processes of continuous integration of point of views, skills and technologies in polymorphs operational contexts. It is therefore considered particularly relevant the organisation of a collective session open to all participants attending other ARV13 workshops with the aim to stimulate discussion and explore how specific goals of other workshops could be considered and integrated into the holistic theme of ''Smart Cities' Learning']


3rd day afternoon


it wil be devote:

a) to the revision of the design concepts, accordingly to the input received during morning activity;

b) the production of a document that is expected to represent a starting point to develop future smart cities learning scenario, in 2020 and before.

The final document produced partially 'in situ' (after the workshop session open to all ARV13 participants: first half of third day) and partially after the end of the workshop wil be published, together with the other papers, into the special issue of the IxD&A journal.
