20th – 22nd September 2017 eCAADe Conference
The eCAADe annual international conference is hosted by a different member university each year. eCAADe initiated and manages the very successful CUMINCAD archive of research publications in the field of CAAD. This is a valuable resource for researchers, educators and others in the field. papers.cumincad.org
eCAADe works in collaboration with sibling international associations in the field:
ACADIA – www.acadia.org – North America, est 1981;
ASCAAD – www.ascaad.org – North Africa and Middle East, est 2001;
CAADFutures – www.caadfutures.org – America and Europe, est 1985;
CAADRIA – www.caadria.org – Asia and Oceania, est 1996;
SIGraDI – www.sigradi.org – South America and Iberica peninsula, est 2005.
eCAADe has also collaborated with these associations to create an exciting international journal called International Journal of Architectural Computing. www.architecturalcomputing.org
Internet of Things, pervasive nets, Knowledge ‘on tap’, Big Data, Wearable devices and the ‘Third wave’ of AI are disruptive technologies that are upsetting our globalised world as far as it can be foreseen from now on.
So academicians, professionals, researchers, students, innovation factories… are warmly invited to further shake up and boost our innovative and beloved CAAD world with new ideas, paradigms and points of view.
Will our fine buildings and design traditions survive? Or, will they ‘simply’ be hybridized and enhanced by methods, techniques and CAAD tools? Obviously computation is needed to match the ever-growing performance requirements, but this is not enough to answer all these questions; we have to deal with the essence of problems: improve design solutions for a better life!
As life is not a matter of single individuals, we need to increase collaboration and to improve knowledge sharing. This means going back to focus on human beings, and involves the humanistic approach, and the long history of design… from handicrafts to thinking to technology… and vice versa.
A large spiral of architectura as eternal as our city.
We look forward to welcoming you!
