Call: 16th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2011)

CAADRIA 2011 Call for Papers – Abstract Due September 7, 2010

Circuit Bending, Breaking and Mending

The 16th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia

Dates: April 27-29, 2011

Host: School of Architecture and Built Environment, University of Newcastle, Australia Submission guidelines and other information:

Contemporary advances in design are shaped by computational design methods, strategies and technologies, regardless of whether these advances are manifested in the design and construction of a building, in related theory and analysis, or in the ways in which future designers and scholars are educated. Architectural computation in the post-digital era calls for new ideas that will transcend conventional boundaries and support creative insights through design and into design. “Circuit Bending, Breaking and Mending” provides an interdisciplinary context for challenging traditional paradigms and invites researchers and practitioners alike to (re)consider and (re)address design and computation with a particular focus on three themes:

  • Innovative design conceptualisation and support through computational theories and technologies.
  • Enhanced knowledge of architecture and design through computational analysis.
  • Improved approaches to design education through computational thinking and applications.

CAADRIA 2011 invites submissions of original research papers, posters and exhibitions on topics related to computer-aided design, including but not limited to:

  • Design intelligence and automation
  • Generative and parametric design
  • Simulation and visualisation
  • Virtual and interactive environments
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Ubiquitous computing
  • Computer-supported design collaboration
  • Design cognition
  • Digital art and new media
  • Computational research in design education
  • Computational research in design practice
  • Interdisciplinary computational design research
  • Theory, philosophy and methodology of computational design research

Young researchers currently involved in postgraduate studies are invited to submit their work-in-progress research papers to the CAADRIA 2011 Postgraduate Student Consortium.
