The work of the Urban Dynamics researchers, if accurate, has major implications for public policy in the urban sphere. In fact, reversal of many of our present urban policies will be mandated. Since other research, some of which is simulation-based, has begun to suggest similar conclusions, it seems appropriate to consider the potential impact of Urban Dynamics and similar work ...

The expertise of systems and control engineering is potentially relevant to the problems of contemporary urban society. But to realize this potential, a paradigm which represents urban problems as problems of design and control must be developed.

In the first part of this paper the policy discussions of the Forrester model  are compared with those of the urban planners. Contrary to Forrester's assertions, these are found to be very similar. In the second part of the paper the determinants of population movement are reexamined and found to differ substantially (particularly with respect to policy variables) from ...

Summary form only given. The Dutch Urban Expert Centre (UEC) is a cooperative effort of 25 cities and 9 departments. This knowledge center was created to address the need for an integrated approach to urban policy, including social, physical and economic aspects. The objective is to offer insight in the form of specific, usable knowledge and to promote knowledge exchange and best practices. The Dutch UEC has five main product groups: publications, meetings and conferences, Web site, R&D programs and a help desk. An example of a knowledge program is social quality matters (SQM). Within this program, five themes are addressed, of which one is safety. An example of a safety program is the virtual bobby project, which provides e-mail contact with local police. Other SQM projects provide data to the public regarding security issues in neighborhoods, train policy-makers, managers and outside professionals, and actively involve citizens in community building and neighborhood communication. The Dutch UEC's English-language Web site is www.dutchuec.nl.
The work of the Urban Dynamics researchers, if accurate, has major implications for public policy in the urban sphere. In fact, reversal of many of our present urban policies will be mandated. Since other research, some of which is simulation-based, has begun to suggest similar conclusions, it seems appropriate to consider the potential impact of Urban Dynamics and similar work on urban public sector policymaking. This paper is not a technical analysis of Urban Dynamics; rather, it is a preliminary assessment of possible policy implications of urban simulation research such as the Forrester model.
The expertise of systems and control engineering is potentially relevant to the problems of contemporary urban society. But to realize this potential, a paradigm which represents urban problems as problems of design and control must be developed. A possible structure for such a paradigm is suggested by Simon's conception of an " artificial science" which emphasizes the problem of designing inner environments whose object is to attain goals and to function adaptively in outer environments . This paper proposes an organization- environment model, combining the Urban Dynamics and hierarchical multilevel systems approaches as one possible basis for such a science. A descriptive formal model of an urban government using the multiechelon approach is developed, and the consistency postulate for the system is defined. This definition illustrates a commonly encountered problem in political systems, namely, the imperfect relationship between electoral and administrative processes and "the general welfare." But this problem cannot be examined systematically until an operational overall system goal for a specific system is defined. Modifications of the Forrester Urban Dynamics model to include a coefficient of "satisfaction" are described to illustrate a potentially useful definition of such a goal. Preliminary results indicate that the values of this coefficient are consistent with the implicit normative assumptions of the Forrester model.
In the first part of this paper the policy discussions of the Forrester model  are compared with those of the urban planners. Contrary to Forrester's assertions, these are found to be very similar. In the second part of the paper the determinants of population movement are reexamined and found to differ substantially (particularly with respect to policy variables) from both the Forrester model and the implicit model of the urban planners.
The evolution of Bucharest during the last 40 years showed spectacular changes, as a result of the socialist urban policy. The paper investigates the leading transformation of the urban structures, comparing declassified intelligence imagery (2002) CORONA KH 7 (0.60-1.20 m spatial resolution) from 1966 and IKONOS pansharpened image from 2002 (1 m spatial resolution). We tried to use an image segmentation algorithm to automatically classify the changes in urban structures. Poor results were obtained as a result of the image geometry, altered radiometry and blur "band stripes" induced by the scanning process of the original film. Imagery interpretation and field observations were applied on three case studies: Palace of Parliament, the so called "People's House", Titan district, Piata Sudului-Berceni area, superposing on the most transformed areas. A large area of old houses disappeared especially on the place of the huge Palace of Parliament where half of the historical centre was replaced by block of flats, some old churches disappeared or moved etc. Big block of flats quarters appeared on fallow ground to the edge of Bucharest, some of them, like Titan district, had replaced the old small houses districts.
Simulation trust is a critical issue to foster e-participation in the new e-governance framework in which it is expected to increase citizen's participation in the design or urban policies. In social science, no firm conclusions have been reached on the appropriate way to verify or validate Agent Based Models, due to several aspects, such as agent capacity to take decisions autonomously. This paper considers some of the difficulties in establishing verification and validation of agent based models, and proposes the use of coloured petri net formalism to specify agent behaviour in order to check if the model looks logical and the model behaves logical. Model plausibility is used to express the conformity of the model with a priori knowledge about the process. The proposed methodology has been applied in the European Future Policy Modelling project (www.fupol.eu) to create trust and increase the credibility of the agent based models developed to foster e-participation in the design of urban policies by means of simulation techniques.
Pervasive systems produce massive amounts of data as by-products of their interaction with users. Cell phone calls can inform us on how many people are present in a given area and how many are entering or leaving it. Geotagged photos can tell us where tourists go within the city and how much time they spend in each place. Descriptions of events, products, and services allow us to characterize places based on their most popular activities, products, and services. In this paper we illustrate a research agenda that aims at developing a holistic framework for the study of urban traces and the profiling of urban processes and their dynamics which will enable us to better understand how cities function and to develop more efficient urban policies. We also present the results of a preliminary case study in New York City where we analyzed the correlation between cell phone network handovers and traffic volumes and between semantic indexes of public events and local variations in cell phone activity. The results showed that there exist causal relationships between these types of data, and confirmed that there is strong promise in the holistic study of urban traces.
