We invite participants of the eCAADe 2016 conference to propose workshops on their current research. The workshops will be held on the 22nd – 23rd August 2016 at the Oulu School of Architecture, University of Oulu, Finland.

Workshops offer the possibilities to give participants a hands-on experience and, for the workshop leader, to have an intense discussion with a small group of people on their research topic. Therefore we are particular encouraging workshop proposals beyond pure software tutorials. At best, the workshops shall generate an outcome, which will be displayed and discussed during a poster session on the welcome evening of the conference.

For any further inquiries concerning the workshops and for submitting a workshop proposal (pdf) please contact: Aulikki Herneoja,  ecaade201 at oulu.fi
