Call for Papers | Rob|Arch 2012: Robotic Fabrication in Architecture, Art, and Design | www.robarch2012.org
Workshops: 14.-16.12.2012 / Conference: 17.-18.12.2012
ROB|ARCH has been initiated by the Association for Robots in Architecture as a new conference series on the use of robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design, closely linking industry with cutting-edge research institutions.
For the first time, ROB|ARCH 2012 will bring together international university partners who will open their robotic research labs to a creative use and present an insight in their applied robotic research at various locations throughout Europe. While the international workshops will be distributed at university partners, the following conference will take place in Vienna, a city well known for its living quality, but also a hotspot for technology and innovation.
The internationally renowned publishing house Springer Wien/New York will publish and market the proceedings of the conference worldwide with the following topics:
-design to robotic fabrication
-rapid prototyping with industrial robots
-robots beyond industrial uses
-digital and physical robotic interfaces

17.12.-18.12.2012 Conference sessions at TU Vienna
We invite authors to submit papers with original research relating to the use of robots in architecture, art, and design. An international scientific committee consisting of researchers and practising architects will evaluate the papers and provide feedback to the authors. The selected papers are published in the Springer proceedings and presented at the conference in Vienna.
