There will be short talks and workshops led by researchers in a variety of areas including the internet of things, networks, virtual cities and literary geographies, and demonstrations of CASA's exhibits "Pigeon Sim" (using an XBox Kinect to "fly around" a virtual London) and "The London Data Table" (showing realtime data feeds from all over the city). This will lead into an informal discussion over drinks, until the event closes.
