Sinopse – The essays of this book discuss a series of reflections related to space and outdoor digital technologies – the so called Mediated Public Open Space. Thirty international authors and researchers engage in the nexus people, places and technology from different positions and perspectives. They shed light to emerging socio-spatial and technical mechanisms and the multiplicity of interaction of humans with urban spaces intertwined by contemporary pervasive technologies. Can the Mediated Public Open Space enable new interactive experiences? Can it lead to innovative realities where the community celebrate publicness enlivening the public realm? These are some questions posed in this volume and the essays that follow attempt to provide food for thought towards increasing the understanding of public spaces in the post-digital era.

Sinopse – In April 2016 CyberParks organised the mid-term research event ICiTy – Enhancing places through technology, in Valletta, Malta, focused on the opportunities and challenges to public spaces brought about by the advancements of ICTs. The conference provided an excellent opportunity to synthesise the current ‘state of the art’, which is now reflected in this collection. It presents interdisciplinary perspectives, analysis of new methodologies, new theoretical or conceptual models for the digital era, as well as preliminary studies of peoples’ use of, and engagement with, technology in public spaces.
