CAADRIA 2017: Protocols, Flows and Glitches

CAADRIA 2017 (The 22nd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia) invites original high quality papers and posters presenting current computer-aided architectural design research in a general sense, accommodating a broad spectrum of approaches ranging from speculative, informal investigations to conventional scientific 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 research
  • Simulation and visualisation
  • Building Information Modelling

Paper acceptance will be subject to a two-stage reviewing process, consisting of an initial abstract review and a later double-blind peer review of full-length manuscripts (the paper acceptance rate was 33 percent of initial submissions in 2016). Paper publication will be subject to review acceptance, to compliance with submission deadlines and formatting guidelines, and to payment of the conference registration fee.

Besides the above specific theme, CAADRIA 2017 also invites posters on general topics in computational design research.Young researchers currently involved in postgraduate studies are invited to submit their work-in-progress research papers to the Postgraduate Student Consortium.
