Open call: Computing for Spatial Design Assistance

Special Issue: Computing for Spatial Design Assistance

as a part of
Automation in Construction: An international research journal published by Elsevier

The topical and thematic focus of the proposed issue builds on the interactions and results achieved at the Interdisciplinary Collaborative Meeting on Computing for Spatial Design, Architecture, and Construction Informatics. The meeting was held from 28-30 June at Scholss Etelsen, Langwedel (near Bremen), Germany.

Scope of the Issue

In the spatial conception, architectural design, and engineering of buildings and constructions, space, its built form, and function play an intrinsically important role. Computer systems aiming at assisting designers, architects, and engineers in the design process must therefore be able to support the notions of space, place, structure, form, and function on a semantic level, which is close to the way humans perceive, reason, and experience it.
There are a number of recently evolved computational methods and paradigms that have the potential for a substantial improvement in spatial design assistance, further closing the gap between humans and computers, and leading closer to a fundamental shift in computer-aided spatial design.
Broadly, this issue will address interdisciplinary collaborative methods for the development of people centered spatial design assistance systems. We invite original papers presenting novel approaches, methodologies and findings in the field of computing for spatial design assistance.
