500-Word Abstract Due September 26, 2014

The adoption of computational processes in architecture has transformed the way we think, design and make, thereby enhancing our understanding, skills and performance in architectural design and research. Since 1996, CAADRIA has contributed to the exchange of information relating to studies and technologies in architecture and design by promoting dialogue, collaboration, and the dissemination of information among leading researchers and practitioners in the field of digital architecture. CAADRIA 2015 celebrates the twenty-year history of CAADRIA with the theme, “Emerging Experiences in the Past, Present, and Future of Digital Architecture”.

The concept of emerging experience originated from the field of Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), and means ‘novel computer interaction and experience’. The theme for CAADRIA 2015 encompasses the total complement of effective innovation and experiences of digital technologies and design research over the twenty years of CAADRIA’s existence. By reflecting on the past, speculating about the present, and exploring the future of digital architecture in CAADRIA, we intend to inspire and to share innovative ideas, emphasizing a cross-disciplinary context in technologies in architecture to promote research in CAAD which enhances creativity.

Besides the above specific themes, CAADRIA 2015 also invites submissions of original research papers and posters on general topics in computational design research, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Computational design research and education
  • Computational design analysis
  • Generative, algorithmic and evolutionary design
  • Digital fabrication and construction
  • Collaborative and collective design
  • Design cognition
  • Virtual/augmented reality and interactive environments
  • Virtual architecture and city modeling
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Ubiquitous and mobile computing
  • Practice-based and interdisciplinary computational design research
  • Theory, philosophy and methodology of computational design
  • Simulation and Visualization
  • Building Information Modeling
  • Architectural Materials and 3D Printing

Young researchers currently involved in postgraduate studies are invited to submit their work-in-progress research papers to the CAADRIA 2015 Postgraduate Student Consortium.
