Intersections Between the Academy and Practice:
COLLABORATION: TECHNOLOGY . RESEARCH . PRACTICE
April 26, 2017 | Orlando, FL
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) are pleased to announce a partnership dedicated to the integration of education, research and practice of technologies at the 2017 AIA National Convention in Orlando. This symposium will focus on COLLABORATION. New technology and ways of working are helping to break down barriers between the different players in the construction process. Industry leaders already do a great deal to encourage collaboration among their teams, providing vision, collaboration-conducive work environments, collaboration technology, and by removing obstacles. Collaboration also happens outside the traditional AEC industry, between architects and cognitive scientists, between architects and community organizers, etc.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Authors should prepare 500-words abstracts, with up to 3 supporting images, for blind peer review. Prospective papers should address one of these topics:
New technology and ways of working that help to break down barriers between the different players in and outside the construction process.
The collaborative research produces new knowledge.
That will increase efficiency and revolutions in the industry business model.
Educators, Practitioners, Researchers and Students are all encouraged to submit. There will be a limited number of paper presentations. Submissions will be blind peer-reviewed. Select abstracts will be invited to submit a final paper, which must be original, unpublished material (60% new content). The papers of authors who attend the conference will be published in the Symposium Proceedings.
