"Hello, Culture"

Computer-Aided Architectural Design Futures 2019

Welcome to CAAD futures 2019 !

“Hello, Culture !"

Things are nothing without being defined by someone. All things including creation or social phenomenon have been given meaning through being understood.

In 2019, the theme of the conference is "Hello, Culture" borrowing from "Hello, World" which is used in all programming languages. As if to say hello to a new world, we are looking forward to meeting with a new cultural area. The new and diverse cultural areas will be defined through contemporary architectural, design, engineer and other researches.

CAAD Futures 2019, with its theme "Hello, Culture", warmly welcomes every contribution to understanding cultures in any shape or form. Subjects of the conference are as follows, but there are no limit.

The CAAD futures 2019 Daejeon workshops invite researchers and industry practitioners to share their research experience, original research results and practical development experiences on specific new challenges and emerging issues of design computing.

The Workshop will be held at the CAAD futures conference in Daejeon on 24-25th June, 2019 (depending on their length). The registration fee for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference (the fee will be added according to the number of workshops you choose), and the conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, etc.
