Thanks to all of you who traveled from near and far to participate in person, and to those of you who followed the meetings remotely.  We found the exchanges very helpful and energizing, and the discussion of priorities for further improving UrbanSim to be extremely valuable.  We will be following up quickly with more updates.

Agenda

Over two days we will hear extensively from UrbanSim Users about their applications of UrbanSim in real-world projects, and will preview the upcoming launch of the new UrbanSim Cloud Platform.  Come join us to learn more!
