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 &  

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
