Digitality is the condition of living in a world where

ubiquitous information and communication technology is

embedded in the physical world. Although it is possible

to point out what is “digital” and what is “real,” the

distinction has become pointless, and it has no more

explanatory power for our environment, buildings, and


Material objects are invested with communication means,

teams are communicating even when not together, and

buildings can sense and respond to the environment,

each other, and to inhabitants. Digital is no longer

an add-on, extra, or separate software. Reality is

partly digital and partly physical.

The implication of this condition is not clear however,

and we need to investigate its potential. We have to

search for new strategies that acknowledge the synergetic

qualities of the physical and the digital. This is not

limited to artifacts or what we design, but it also

influences the process, methods, and what or how we teach.

For the conference therefore, we are looking for

contributions that explore this synergy. Authors are

encouraged to submit their work on the conference theme.

Subjects may be, but are not limited to:

.    CAAD curriculum.

.    Modes of production.

.    New design concepts and strategies.

.    Mass customization.

.    Collaborative design.

.    Digital aids to design creativity.

.    User participation in design.

.    Generative design.

.    Virtual architecture.

.    Shape studies.

.    Virtual reality.

.    Precedence and prototypes.

.    Web-based design.

.    Design tool development.

.    Human-Computer Interaction.

.    Simulation, prediction, and evaluation.

.    City modelling.

.    Digital applications in construction.
