Postgraduate Student Consortium

The Postgraduate Student Consortium provides a supportive setting for feedback on your current research and guidance on future research directions. It offers you comments and fresh perspectives on your work from international academics and students outside your own institution. It promotes the development of a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research. The Postgraduate Student Consortium is an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues of similar background or interests and from the international community and to explore potential external examiners. Your supervisors don’t have to attend the consortium, but they are invited to join.
The consortium is different from your paper presentation, since it offers you advise on your overall study and progress and explores in more detail your thesis.

You present your ongoing research work and results to date. You have the chance to discuss your research in an informal session with peers and experienced academics from your field.

Review Criteria

- Originality of the work concerning current concepts and techniques
- Importance of the work concerning fundamental issues and themes
- Clarity of defined research questions and aims, methodology, discussion
- Rigour and validity of argumentation, results, and interpretations
- Clarity and persuasiveness of expression.


Applications consist of:
- An extended abstract or full paper describing work in process and key questions addressed.
- A one-page curriculum vitae (attached to the end of the paper).

All inquiries & submission via email to:
Submission Deadline: 1st April 2019

Young CAADRIA Award

The prestigious Young CAADRIA Awards are funded by CAADRIA, given by a committee jointly by CAADRIA, the Paper Selection Committee, and the Conference Host and will be decided by them after the acceptance of papers. Awards will be applied to conference registration fees and are not transferable (e.g. awardees cannot assign them to co-authors). If an awardee does not attend the conference, no award will be given.

Open to full or part-time registered research students (PhD or Masters or undergraduate)
Chosen before the conference, winners exempt from paying registration fees.
The student applies for award if the paper is selected for inclusion into the conference.
Chosen on the merit of abstract, contribution and relevance to CAADRIA and demonstrated depth of research interest.


- Clarity of concept
- Understanding of context
- Quality of writing
- Strength of research in CV
- Applicability to the broader architectural research
- Typically only one student per university per year.


Submission Deadline: 30th January 2019 (closed)
Inquiries & submission via email:
CV, list of publications, accepted paper and other supporting documents. 


Sasada Prize

The Sasada Prize is instituted in the memory of Prof. Tsuyoshi Sasada (1941-2005), former Professor of Osaka University, co-founder and Fellow of CAADRIA, a prolific researcher and teacher from whose lab over 200 students have graduated, and better known as "Tee" in the community.
The Sasada Prize will be given to an individual whose sustained record of contributions demonstrates or promises significant impact on the field of computer-aided design. In keeping with Tee's spirit, the award recipient will have contributed to the next generation of researchers and academics, to the broader profession and practice in computer-aided design and research, and earned recognition in peer community.
