IJAC | International Journal of Architectural Computing*

We invite authors to submit original research papers for the issue scheduled for May/June 2013, under the title:

Jose Kos and Daniel Cardoso
Guest editors
Deadline February 3rd, 2013

In the past, wood was work’s matter and main resource. Nowadays, information is our matter. The challenges and efforts of our times are related to information. They deal with the progressive processes in which data is organized, and how this information can be communicated in various shapes and perceived as knowledge.

Contemporary processes of design and production of objects, architecture and cities, require digital manipulation of information. This manipulation has allowed the resurgence of design processes based on emerging shapes, using algorithms and grammar. It is this digital progress that allows for the information management of BIM and other protocols of collaborative tasks. It also allows the idea formation in virtual realities, or even incorporated by the matter itself, through CAD-CAM technologies.

It is this process of formation, this continuous flux of reducing entropy, that comprises our matter. The next IJAC issue acknowledge this flux through the investigation of the great variety of form[in]formation processes.

Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers that have not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration for another journal. The submissions should be full-length papers (3000 – 5000 words, maximum length 6000 words) complete with illustrations reporting original research or practice.

Papers must be submitted only by the IJAC online system at: http://www.architecturalcomputing.org/review/author/submit.php
Authors must check the “special issue” box in the submission system. Papers sent under other categories will not be considered for this issue.
Please type “Form(in)Formation” in the “Optional Comments” box in the form.
