ROB | ARCH 2014: Robotic Fabrication in Architecture, Art, and Design
University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning
May 17-18, 2014
Deadline for submission of abstracts: November 15, 2013
Final paper submission: December 1, 2013

ROBARCH

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. In December 2012 the conference was hosted by its founders in Vienna, Austria. In 2014 the conference travels to North America, hosted by the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

Continuing with the previous theme of collaboration, the conference seeks to bring together artists, designers, fabricators, and industry leaders for the purpose of advancing the discourse surrounding robotic fabrication. Following on the success of ROB|ARCH 2012, the conference will again present a series of workshops held at select research institutions on the east coast of the United States, aimed at exposing the advanced capabilities of applied robotic research. Following the workshops, the conference will span two days at the University of Michigan Campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan, about an hour outside of Detroit, the origin of robotics in North America. The internationally renowned publishing house Springer Wien/New York will publish and market the proceedings of the conference worldwide.

Schedule

Conference Paper Submission
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, designers, and architects will evaluate the papers and provide feedback to the authors. The selected papers will be published in the proceedings by Springer and presented at the conference in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Submissions on the following topics are encouraged:

  • design to robotic fabrication
  • material feedback in fabrication
  • cooperative robotic fabrication
  • rapid prototyping with industrial robots
  • mass customization
  • digital and physical robotic interfaces
