CAADRIA 2010: 15th International Conference of the Association for
Computer-Aided Architectural Design in Asia
The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
7-10 April, 2010


We are facing unprecedented challenges in our natural & human-made,
cultural, social & built environments. Working at the intersection of
human needs, creative innovation, education, critical thinking,
computing, science, design & technology, CAAD practitioners &
researchers are uniquely placed to engage with these challenges & frontiers.

Especially our Asian context, with its philosophical richness and its
rising influence on the world stage, offers NEW FRONTIERS to develop
relevant discourses and, possibly, appropriate cures.

CAADRIA 2010 now calls for Papers, Round-table seminars, Posters,
Exhibitions, Workshops & Postgraduate Students' research that address

     * Intelligence & Cognition
     * Research & Practice
     * Human & Computer
     * Theory & Philosophy
     * Education & Learning
     * Culture & Heritage
     * Ubiquity & Environment
     * Collaboration & Community
     * Computation & Information
     * Generative & Parametric
     * Modelling & Process
     * Visualization & Animation
     * Simulation & Testing
     * Virtuality & Reality

The 15th CAADRIA Conference will be co-hosted by the School of
Architecture & the Institute of Space & Earth Information Science at the
Chinese University of Hong Kong. Hong Kong’s exceptional environment
allows for rich experiences that are unique & broadening. CAADRIA
fosters research, education & praxis in advancing knowledge &
understanding in digital design methods in architecture. We cordially
invite you to submit your contributions.

abstract or full paper plus one-page curriculum vitae) are invited from
current postgraduate students who will benefit from detailed workshop
discussions of their research by a panel of established researchers.

     The Postgraduate Student Consortium will be held within special
time slots during the conference. Students will give a presentation
