An International Conference about Digital Architecture to be held in London
International Conference on Parallelism in Architecture, Environment ad Computing Techniques (PACT).
The theme of Parallelism in Architecture, Environment and Computing Techniques (PACT) 2016 explores the relations between computational design software in architecture, organizational and global, ever-changing and pervasive contexts.
This conference looks at how the new trends of architectural technologies and computational thinking can adapt to increase the ability in finding a complex digital fabrication, augmented reality, and intelligent environment.
PACT 2016 aims to gather practitioners and researchers interested in investigating and improving the state of practice of computational design software in the architectural discourse, where practicing design computing experts can explain the challenges they face in their day-to-day practices, and collectively induce an impact on the future of the field.
PACT 2016 is organized by The University of East London (UEL), in collaboration with the International Experts for Research Enrichment and Knowledge Exchange (IEREK) institution.
The conference represents an important forum for computational and digital architecture research that reconciles parallelism in different architectural and computing discourses, and provokes discussion in state-of-the-art themes and topics such as high performance computing, parametric design using Software Like grasshopper, big data, advanced systems and interfaces, ubiquitous computing, as well as advanced fabrication technologies and tectonics.
The conference also includes within its scope a number of workshops and technical sessions.
