About

What is the Colloquium about?

The colloquium is the first of its kind where a moderated discussion with panelist will examine innovative transportation solutions in a systemic manner so as to address the reality of a typical North American polycentric metropolitan area that has been based mostly on a outdated, and unsustainable dependence on an petroleum driven economy, infrastructure, and planning of cities, suburban, and towns in the United States. Instead of examining solutions that apply to idealize (but non-existent) urban centers, this colloquium embraces the contemporary condition -- the messy, chaotic, politically and socially balkanized, poly-centric metropolis. By exploring current technologies, as well as those which have reached a high degree of feasibility, this interdisciplinary colloquium will explore the potential of an ubiquitous self-regulating system that can cope with and adapt to the unpredictability of a mobile society that moves away from dependence on the current paradigm of transportation systems. The output of this colloquium is to condense the discussion, audio, and video into a publication that can spur potential focus and discussion on the topic.
