With two thirds of the world's population soon residing in cities, the question of how information technology affects urban life and global urbanization trends becomes more relevant than ever. Due to the interplay of economic, social, organizational, and technological dimensions, the IS discipline is in an excellent position to contribute to solving this grand societal challenge. This panel will explore various issues in this context, such as e-government, emergency response, and sustainable energy and mobility, to derive implications for future IS research directions and for successful collaborations with industry and municipal partners.
