Call for workshops

The AAG2020 organising committee solicits proposals for full-day workshops to be held in conjunction with the Advances in Architectural Geometry Conference at the Ecole des Ponts ParisTech in September 2020. The purpose of a workshop is to provide an opportunity for participants from academia or industry to present and discuss novel ideas on current and emerging topics in architectural geometry, digital design, simulation and fabrication. The Workshops are scheduled for 30th-31st August 2020. 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 that workshops will include between 10 and 20 participants from industry, research as well as architectural and engineering study programmes. The workshop proposal should contain the following information:


  • Title of workshop

  • Names, affiliations, mailing address, e-mail address of the workshop organiser(s)

  • Short bios of the workshop organiser(s) including previous experience in organising workshops

  • A maximum of three paragraphs that describe the topic of the workshop, its target audience incl. preexpected knowledge, and its relevance to AAG2020

  • Expected format of the workshop (panels, discussion sessions, poster sessions, invited talks, etc.)

  •  Tentative programme sketch for the workshop (2 days workshops of 8 hours each)

  •  A short description on how the workshop will be advertised

  • A list of foreseen needs for workshop tools and materials
