CALL FOR PAPERS
Intelligent & Informed
The 24th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2019)
The territories of computational design are ever-changing and represent a substantial region that remains uncharted; one with expanding and permeable boundaries that continue to be fully breached. This ocean of opportunity implores researchers to embark on ambitious journeys of exploration. Undulating and temporal, computational design needs research that engages explicitly with the innovative, intelligent and informed exploitation of computational design, and with the array of computational technologies that the discipline may engage with.
Human intelligence and creativity deliver the hegemonic direction for the field of computer-mediated architectural design research; an area where the computational component is a core aspect of the investigation. The actors in this are both witness to, and instigators of, the exciting, consequent, well-founded research that continues to deliver new knowledge, insights and information.
This, then, explains the specific overarching theme of the conference: ‘Intelligent and Informed’.
The scope of this theme is driven by the intention to take in aspects of machine intelligence, and a wide range of potential research that engages with the intelligent exploitation of computer-mediated techniques in Architecture.
Within the coverage of the call lies a broad spectrum of approaches ranging from speculative, informal investigations to conventional scientific research, including but not limited to the following research and praxis topics. Papers must address the conference theme 'Informed & Intelligent'.
The following sub-topics can address the conference theme in the larger architectural research realm:
• Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
• Building-, City-, Region-Information Modelling/Management
• Computational Design Education
• Collaborative and Collective Design
• Simulation and Analysis
• Design Cognition
• Digital Conservation and Heritage
• Digital Fabrication and Construction
• Generative, Algorithmic and Evolutionary Design/Techniques
• Human-computer Interaction
• Internet of Things, Internet of Spaces
• Practice and Interdisciplinarity
• Smart-Buildings, -Cities, -Regions
• Theory, Philosophy and Methodology
• Ubiquitous, Mobile and Cloud Computing
• Virtual-, Augmented-, Mixed-, and Interactive-Environments
