Design and Use of Information Systems for a Sustainable Complex City

Abstract

The city is the functional appearance of modern civilisation. It is the heartland of the economy, the cradle of creativeness and innovation, the source of science and culture. It is the meeting place of a modern society, and the nodal centre of a gradually globalising network society. The city is essentially the place where individuals shape a contemporary sense of community and where a post-modern urban space determines individual lifestyles (see Leontidou, 1992).
