ACADIA is one of many organizations around the world supporting the field of design computation. In addition to our sibling organizations in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and South America, ACADIA is partnered with the CumInCAD publication archive and the International Journal of Architectural Computing. ACADIA also keeps in close contact with several other organizations such as Smart Geometry and Tex-Fab. Finally, the numerous design computation blogs listed in our Blogroll help keep us all up-to-date on many innovative research areas and projects.
CumInCAD is is a cumulative index of publications about computer aided architectural design. It includes bibliographic information about over 10,500 records from journals and conferences such as ACADIA, ASCAAD, CAADRIA, eCAADe, SiGraDi, CAAD futures,DDSS and others. All papers include full abstracts. Full texts, in PDF, of some 7,700 papers are also available. A separate index of some 1,500 papers in Spanish language are maintained.
All student, regular, and institutional members of ACADIA gain access to the CumInCAD database of publications.
The International Journal of Architectural Computing (IJAC) is an exciting peer-reviewed journal founded by international organizations dedicated to promoting collaborative research and development of computer-aided architectural design. IJAC is committed to deepening the understanding of the foundations of digital systems for architectural design and the technologies enabling their development and application.
There are four issues of IJAC per year: published in both electronic and hard copies. Successively, one issue each year is supervised by Editorial Board members from its four founding organizations:
The journal features high-quality, original research papers (including state-of-the-art reviews), brief papers, and letters in all theoretical and technological areas that make up the field of Architectural Computing. Certain issues will have contemporary themes.
