ROB|ARCH 2018: RADICAL CROSS-DISCIPLINARITY

The advent of robotics in the creative and construction industries has led to an amazing revolution, changing not just how things are designed and made, but also transforming knowledge cultures, politics and economics that surround them. As such, the ROB|ARCH 2018 conference – hosted by the NCCR Digital Fabrication and ETH Zurich – will continue this path, developing and revealing novel insights, applications and impacts of this transformation within the scientific, creative, and entrepreneurial domains, including, for example, architecture, structural design, civil and process engineering, art and design, and robotics. A particular focus lies upon cross-disciplinary approaches and applications, providing state-of-the-art knowledge, techniques and methods of robotics not just in individual areas of exploration, but also beyond. These ideals aspire to complement the transformation processes of emerging robotic research and applications, and to redefine cross-disciplinary work in an era of global digitalisation and knowledge transfer. Key topics and issues of ROB|ARCH 2018 include autonomous control systems, advanced construction, collaborative design tools, computerised materials and structures, adaptive sensing and actuation, on-site and cooperative robotics, machine-learning, human-machine interaction, large-scale robotic fabrication and networked workflows.

ROB|ARCH 2018 accepts proposals for workshops until September 8th!

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for two-day OR three-day workshops, which will be held September 10th – 12th, 2018. Workshop proposals with strong cross-disciplinary trajectories that actively integrate experts from multiple fields are highly encouraged, e.g. in the form of collaborative experimentation, complementary fields of knowledge, combination of various technologies, etc, leading to exciting practical work and other outputs with high impact potential.

 

Detailed information on the 2018 workshops and submission requirements can be found in the workshop proposal guidelines.

 

We look forward to receiving exciting workshop proposals from cross-disciplinary teams until Friday, September 8th!
