In/Visibility, Access and Urban Zoning

World-Information City Paris 2009 is an international, two day conference focusing on four major themes within the wide field of new urban geographies: mobility, global flows and local dynamics, the remaking of urban spaces through new strategies of conflict and security, and new approaches to map distributed action in space. Mobility – of people, goods, and information – across distances large and small has become an ever more salient aspect of a wide range of social practices.
