Hallo! Grüezi!

I am Panayotis Antoniadis and I recently joined the Communication Systems Group at ETH Zurich.

I pursue an interdisciplinary research agenda combining computer science, networking, economics, community informatics, and urban studies, around an open source ICT framework for creating hybrid spaces that encourage information sharing, civic engagement, and conviviality.

Current research

My research is partially supported by the Network of Excellence in Internet Science and the following paper, co-authored with I. Apostol, summarizes the core ideas and long-term vision of the nethood project: The Neighbourhood Game: from behavioural economics to urban planning, 1st Internation Conference on Internet Science, Brussels, April 10-11 2013. [paper, slides]

This period we spend most of our time studying related work from different disciplines and discovering similar projects (there are many!). We will soon present and synthesize all this material at this web site: http://nethood.org.

In the mean time you can check the abstracts presented in conferences of different disciplines (sociology, urban planning, behavioural economics) touching on different dimensions of the main idea of the NetHood project (journal versions are under preparation):
