Internet2 members anchor Global Summit on Digital Cities - Cleveland, Ohio - $10K Prize for Best of Show Call for Presentations

Cleveland, OH July 30 and 31, 2004
One hundred cities, 500 effective practices on the digital transformation of life in the city of the future.

Digital Cities Conference 2004 is releasing this Call for presentations, presenters and effective practices for applications and services that are changing the way people work, live, study, and play. Thanks to generous support from Intel, Cisco, Sprint, Allied Telesyn and a growing list of technology sponsors, we're convening a global symposium that celebrates the positive impact breakthrough technology has on the world's cities. The symposium will be anchored by Internet2 members Case Western Reserve University,  and Cleveland State University as well as  Internet2 affiliate members the Cleveland Institute of Music and Cleveland Museum of Art.   The best of show will be awarded a check for $10,000. Other cash awards for best demonstration and digital story will also bring fame and fortune to innovators in each major category of application.

We’re building the archetypal Digital City in Cleveland, Ohio July 30 & 31.  The conference will feature speakers, panelists, and roundtable sessions, uniquely integrated throughout an engaging exhibit area that is literally a “Digital City“, complete with neighborhoods defined by major market segments.  Stroll off the Public Green into the Healthcare Neighborhood and see how a surgeon in Paris confers with a radiologist in Cleveland during a procedure, Explore the Government Neighborhood and learn how the a major Midwestern city enhances public safety and convenience through a computer tracking system that manages snow removal (it knows where every plow is and which streets still need attention). Experience an interactive theatrical event in the “Cultural “District” where dancers in New York perform live with artists in Cleveland though a multi-media experience.

Calling Pioneers, Innovators, and Trendsetters.  We’ve organized the inaugural Digital City into 18 neighborhoods.  If you have a story to tell, a demonstration, a lesson learned, partnership success, or a cool technology we’re inviting you to share it with the world when it comes to Cleveland.
