Conference Theme:
Communicating Space(s)

During the last four decades, designers have utilized information and communication technologies for creating environmental representations in order to communicate spatial concepts or designs and for enhancing spaces, as contexts for mediated communication. This hypothesis implies two diverse but partially intersecting thematic axes along which spatial design and communication relate:

These thematic axes indicate the main topics of this conference:

  1. Communicating spatial representations: These spaces may vary in scale but emphasis will be given to urban scale representations.
  2. Communicating within mediated spaces (environments enhanced by information and communication technologies):

Additional topics include but are not limited to:

Collaborative design

Research, Education and Practice

Digital methods of construction

Precedence and Prototypes

Generative design

Prediction and Evaluation

Information Visualization
