Call for Papers | Rob|Arch 2012: Robotic Fabrication in Architecture, Art,
and Design |
Workshops: 14.-16.12.2012 / Conference: 17.-18.12.2012
ROB|ARCH has been initiated by the Association for Robots in Architecture as
a new conference series on the use of robotic fabrication in architecture,
art, and design, closely linking industry with cutting-edge research
For the first time, ROB|ARCH 2012 will bring together international
university partners who will open their robotic research labs to a creative
use and present an insight in their applied robotic research at various
locations throughout Europe. While the international workshops will be
distributed at university partners, the following conference will take place
in Vienna, a city well known for its living quality, but also a hotspot for
technology and innovation.
The internationally renowned publishing house Springer Wien/New York will
publish and market the proceedings of the conference worldwide with the
following topics:
-design to robotic fabrication
-rapid prototyping with industrial robots
-mass customisation
-robots beyond industrial uses
-robotic aesthetics
-customized robotics
-digital and physical robotic interfaces

Free sponsor “pre-workshops” for ABB Robot Studio and Grasshopper
