Deadline extended: ASA seeks contributions for its 2022 conference

The conference calls for abstracts, posters, and video presentations concerning a range of sub-themes.

In the context of the climate emergency, global pandemic, and greater striving for clean and renewable energy resources, the 55th international conference of the Architectural Science Association (ANZAScA) explores the intersections of architecture, building science, and urban design, health, and wellbeing with the aim of increasing sustainable quality and user experience "to make places in which we live more liveable".

Architectural science and design researchers, educators, students, as well as practitioners and policymakers are invited to present and share ideas on innovative, sustainable, and resilient design outcomes that will contribute to the betterment of our environment. All papers are double, blind refereed

Calls for abstracts, posters, and video presentations should concern the following sub-themes:

  • Evaluating the environmental performance of traditional construction practices to inform sustainable design solutions
  • Permanence, transformation, contemporaneity: Using architectural science to evaluate future directions in urban environments
  • Reintegrating building science principles into user-centered architectural design conception
  • Big data: using predictive analysis and advanced parametric modelling to enhance the spatial experience of architecture and the built environment 
  • Architectural education at the intersection of building science, culture, and design
  • Embodied energy. Life Cycle Assessment and Building performance in service of regenerative design
  • Beyond building physics: the role of health sciences, social science, and environmental science in shaping architectural responses

The abstract submission deadline is 30 April emailed to [email protected].
