SimAUD2017 – Call for Submissions [ ]

To respond to the increasing complexity of cities and buildings, computer simulations for the built environment are not only required to support both specific disciplinary expertise and interdisciplinary collaborations, but also address all scales of the built environment, from exploring new urban configurations to the design of building components. Consequently, innovation in computer simulations questions disciplinary boundaries and derives from the convergence of knowledge from different fields. The 8th annual Symposium on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design (SimAUD) tackles the interdisciplinary aspects of the development and use of simulations to measure, predict, assess, comprehend and manage the performances of buildings and cities, in regard to their technical and non-technical requirements. SimAUD offers the opportunity to present innovative simulation methods and techniques and to discuss their roles in urban planning, architecture, engineering, construction, and management. This year's event will be held at the MaRS Discovery District and at the University of Toronto in Canada, in the heart of one of the largest urban innovation hubs.

In past years, attendees have included researchers and practitioners in the fields of urban planning and design, architecture and building science, visualization and construction, as well as software developers, managers, educators, and business professionals. Past SimAUD symposia have attracted exceptionally high-quality submissions (papers, notes, works in progress, datasets, and videos). We highly encourage you to take advantage of the free downloads of previous years' proceedings<>.

We invite you to submit and present an original contribution for SimAUD2017. All submissions are peer-reviewed and considered for selection by the Scientific Committee. All accepted full papers (8 pages) will be published in the ACM Digital Library<>. However, all the accepted submissions (both full and short papers) will be published in SimAUD’s proceedings. Please observe the submission types and deadlines on the Symposium website. SimAUD is run collaboratively with ACM/SIGSIM<> and is sponsored by The Society for Modeling and Simulation International<>.
