Dear Colleagues

*** Sincere apologies for multiple posting ***

The Innovation Center Iceland will host the 9th European Conference on Product and Process Modelling (ECPPM) to be held on 25th -27th of July, 2012 in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The aim of the ECPPM 2012 is to bring together leading experts from academia, research, software development and the construction industry to report on, demonstrate and discuss latest achievements both theoretical and practical, emerging trends and future directions in product and process modelling technology and innovative ICT in the AEC/FM industry – focusing on integrated project working, value-based life cycle management and as support for intelligent and sustainable building and construction in this dynamic and fragmented industry.

The 3rd Workshop on eeBuildings Data Models (Energy Efficiency
Vocabularies) organized by the EU will take place on the 26th of July as part of the conference. Eight European projects will be presented at the workshop with focus on vocabularies and ontology’s to foster interoperability of ICT solutions for energy efficiency in buildings and energy management systems that also extend beyond the building into public spaces, neighborhoods and districts.

Subject: Call for the 2nd eCAADe grant for young researchers


Dear colleagues,

I am happy to announce the 2nd eCAADe grant for young researchers. It would be great if you can distribute the information among your students and forward it to colleagues outside eCAADe who might be interested.We are all looking forward to an interesting PhD workshop during our forthcoming conference:

Digital Physicality | Physical Digitality

September 12 – 14 2012, Prague, Czech Republic

We invite young researchers studying in Europe who have not yet received the eCAADe grant, never presented at an eCAADe conference, and who will not present at eCAADe 2012 in Prague to submit their approved PhD proposal and a motivation statement (in total about 1000 to 1500 words).

The PhD has to be in the field of computational technologies in research and education for architecture and related profession. You will attend a pre-conference PhD workshop where you will present your work and discuss with experienced researchers. The Workshop is most valuable for PhD students in the early stage of the work and not intended to be a presentation of an already finished PhD.

The PHD workshop will take place on tuesday 11th September 12:00a.m before the conference The details and the application form of the eCAADe grant are available on our website

The deadline for application is: 15/6/2012

The submissions will be blind reviewed and the best five students will receive the grant.

The grant will consist of a subsidy of 400€ and a student admission for the conference

kind regards

Wolfgang Dokonal

eCAADe Vice President

ps. if you have any questions according the grant don’t hesitate to contact us.

The submissions will be blind reviewed and the best five students will receive the grant.

Von: Philippe Marin Betreff: Materiality in its Contemporary Forms (MC2012) – Call for Abstract – June 30 2012
Datum: 30. April 2012 12:12:07 MESZ

Dear all,
We have the pleasure to announce the call for abstract concerning the symposium “Materiality in its Contemporary Forms” (MC2012) which will be held in Lyon (France) from the 29 to 31 November 2012.

Materiality in its Contemporary Forms
Architectural perception, fabrication and conception

Les Grands Atelier – Lyon – France
26 November 1 December 2012

15 June 2012 : Deadline for receipt of 600-words abstracts

Themes :

The far-reaching technological and societal changes which characterize our time go hand-in-hand with the re-organization and renewal of the issues associated with the design and construction of our built environment. Our symposium will centre on the question of materiality in its multiple forms, addressed from a multi-disciplinary, polysemic point of view. Atomic matter has always been and remains pivotal to humankind’s building activities, but this matter now has an immaterial extension in the conditions, effects or indeed performance which have become design materials in their own right. These project vectors thus give rise to new practices, know-how and construction techniques, in such a way that the modalities of project planning, design and production, every bit as much as the usual architectural modalities, configure the force field which gives shape to projects. So the notion of materiality takes on a broader sense, encompassing invisible, normative, physical, sensory, digital and societal components.

Once completed an architectural project should be understood as a synthesis by which the form of forces configures the force of a form, but new forms of materiality grasped in a performative rationale nevertheless strengthen sectoral expertise. Following six specific threads our prime aim is to present the emblematic changes and innovations which are accompanying the renewal of the paradigms associated with the construction of our physical and human environment.

Matter for the senses / Matter as energy / Matter as structure / Matter as ambiance / Matter as information / Matter as a source of innovation
