Call for Submissions: CDFAM Symposium 2024 – Berlin (May) and/or NYC (August)

We are pleased to announce the continuation of the CDFAM Computational Design Symposium Series for 2024 in Berlin for May 7-8, in New York City for August and are now seeking submission for presentations.

Scope of the Symposium

The symposium aims to explore computational design across multiple scales—micro, meso, macro, and mega with expert speakers covering the full scope from AI driven material development through to architectural scale systems.

We invite submissions from professionals and academics in design, engineering, architecture, and software development to both attend and present.

The symposium aims to be a comprehensive platform for exploring computational design in its many facets. Our focus extends from advancements in additive manufacturing, from material development to part and system performance optimization, to the latest developments in generative and simulation-driven design all the way up to architectural scale research and applications. We are particularly interested in how these technologies intersect with and are enhanced by artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Early Bird Discount Tickets Available until January 1st 2024

This multidisciplinary approach is not solely about technological innovation; it also encompasses the broader implications of these advancements. We aim to explore the ethical, data, and societal considerations that come with the adoption of AI and machine learning in design and manufacturing.

By doing so, the symposium seeks to provide a nuanced understanding of the evolving landscape of computational design across all fields.

Presenting at the Computational Design Symposium offers an unparalleled opportunity to showcase your work to a distinguished audience of professionals, academics, and thought leaders in the field. Beyond the presentation stage, the symposium provides a platform for networking, fostering collaborations, and engaging in meaningful dialogues that can lead to future partnerships and advancements in computational design.
