Digital designing takes place through processes of interaction between human designers and computers. As such, its location is the  in-between, a shared realm of conversation where capabilities of both  man and machine are amplified.
This issue of IJAC will pursue this conversation in terms of three  perspectives that drive both research and practice in the computer-aided architectural design field:

  • Integrative digital design: With the diverse and fast speed of the  global economy in the 21st century, the barrier between different  disciplines is being overcome digitally. The integration of multiple  disciplines is crucial for facing the next wave of global challenges.
  • Intuitive digital design: With advanced computational technology, how  humans will cooperate with machines after the computing era will  surely become the next challenge for all computational design-related
  • researchers.
  • Intelligent digital design: With artificial intelligence, design  intelligence is the third theme we would like to address this year.

We wish to challenge global researchers to provide a smart and  responsive environment for improving our lives and stimulating our  economy in innovative ways.

Authors are invited to submit complete and original articles, which  have not been published elsewhere and are not currently under  consideration for another journal or conference.  Full-length papers  should be 3000 – 5000 words, maximum length 6000 words normally,  reporting original research.


In order to facilitate the review process, authors are required to  submit their paper by uploading to the IJAC review system. Before  submitting, authors should make sure that papers conform to the IJAC  template and guidelines, which can be downloaded at:

The papers must be submitted in either Adobe PDF format (.pdf) or as  a Word 97-2003 document (.doc). Please avoid using the more recent  Word2007 file format (.docx). The filename should be no longer than 8  characters (plus file extension). The file must not be larger than  5MB in size. Please use low resolution (72ppi) JPEG images for the
online review. Higher resolution (300ppi) JPEG should be used for the  final submission.

Properly formatted files should be uploaded at the following  location, after completing all of the information on the page:

Authors should also notify by email the Issue Editors that a paper  was uploaded to the online review system.

The International Journal of Architectural Computing (IJAC) is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to promoting collaborative research and development of computer-aided architectural design. IJAC is committed to deepening the understanding of the foundations of digital systems for architectural design and the technologies enabling their development and application.

IJAC is published four times a year by MultiScience in both electronic and hardcopy. The Editorial Board members are drawn from its four founding organizations: Education and Research in Computer-Aided Architectural Design in Europe (eCAADe), the Association of Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA), Sociedad Iberoamericana de Grafica Digital (SIGraDi), and Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA). Issues are coordinated by Andre Brown (, the Editor in Chief.
