Call for Workshops 


The DMSP organising committee solicits proposals for full-day workshops to be held in conjunction with the main Conference at ENSA-Versailles, France in September 2017.

The purpose of a workshop is to provide an opportunity for participants from academia, industry, government and other related parties to present and discuss novel ideas on current and emerging topics relevant to knowledge discovery and data mining. Workshops are scheduled for 16 – 17 September 2017.

The workshops should explore the role, design and critical reflection of the computational model with special focus on simulation, fabrication, conception of complex systems, feedback and the integration and critical employment of external information into the design model. The workshops could explore specific scales ranging or the interlinking of material systems, buildings to cities and their ecologies.

The format should be hands on knowledge-and tool sharing. It can be software or hardware based, creating digital and/or physical prototypes. Results will be presented during the Conference as “work in progress showings” and in exhibition. We anticipate workshops will include between 10 and 20 participants from industry, research as well as architectural and engineering study programmes.

Workshop proposal submission deadline: 30 April 2017
