Conference Venue - UTown

Singapore is renowned for having transformed from a third-world developmental state to one of the world's most prosperous and high-tech global cities. Technological systems are so ubiquitous, deeply layered, and the ethos of technology-driven change so strong that the city-state has become an iconic site for the study of social-technical-political relationships.

The conference will be held in University Town (UTown), an extension of the NUS Kent Ridge campus of the National University of Singapore (NUS), a beautiful green non-smoking space with state-of-the-art facilities. The keynotes and panel sessions will be held at various locations in UTown.
