Abstract(in English) This paper investigates the concept of digital city and proposes a theoretical basis for the design and development of digital cities. The ultimate function of a digital city is to support navigation in an environment. Navigation builds on meanings of the environment resulted from semiosis (meaning-making) processes. These processes may affect each other, owing to communication. Communication is performed with signs and depends on the behavioral co-ordination of communicating parties. The classical theories do not satisfactory explain communication. The paper introduces a new model of communication that utilizes concepts and the apparatus from Semiotics and Complex System Theory and defines communication as a partial sequence of semiosis processes defined recurrently, as emerged from the interaction of at least one psychic system with one or more social system (s). The psychic and social systems are characterized as self-organizing systems ; their dynamics is described. An example of the application of the proposed model to the analysis of interfaces of digital cities is given.
