ALGODE -International Symposium on Algorithmic Design for Architecture and Urban Design- CALL FOR PAPERS


Submission details:
(All submissions require an abstract in the first instance.)

Abstract details:
The Abstract should be no more than 300 words including selected topics and keywords to be received by 20 October 2010. Abstracts must include the proposed title for the paper and may include images and diagrams. Topics other than the listed can be accepted based on their relevance.

The abstract submissions should be made via the online form. Please provide all required contact details including authors’ names, academic or professional affiliations (e.g. name of institution), full mailing address, fax number and e-mail address of the corresponding author(s). Each abstract will be refereed by reviewers and will be evaluated for originality, significance and clarity.

Full paper:
Only required for academic submissions to main symposium once the abstract has been selected and not to be more than 5,000 words including abstract, keywords and references (the Oxford referencing rules need to be followed). Submission date will be no later than 14 January 2011. The final full paper will be reviewed and may be requested to be revised if it does not conform to the abstract.

We have received a number of questions concerning presentation formats. Instead of holding a traditional style of symposium, which requires delivering of papers, ALGODE seeks a range of work including design projects that explore the topic of algorithmic design. The presenters of those non-paper based submissions may choose to display their work using printed panels if preferred. Further details on display panels will be informed after announcement of acceptance for abstract
