Dates: 22-24 November 2017
Location: Concepción, Chile
Website: SIGraDI 2017
Deadline for submissions: 29 March 2017

The annual SIGraDI conference will take place in Concepción, Chile this year. The organising team has been working on developing, for more than a decade, a Latin American-based platform where research from the region and about the region is presented and discussed. The underlying theme of the conference is computation in design, however, the conference welcomes content in areas that don´t include 1´s and 0´s.

The conference accepts papers in Spanish, Portuguese and English.

The chosen theme, Resilience Design, evidences the researchers’ concern about issues related to our reality of climate change and natural disasters, associated with the states of vulnerability and risk, having wide effects on society and the way we inhabit territories. These matters are fundamental and highly relevant for the disciplines and in the fields of design and architecture, as they are also important for collaborative work with areas emerging from the arts and human sciences.

Thinking about Resilience Design is to set ourselves on new scenarios of reflection and action which, supported by transdisciplinary thinking and collaborative design, allow us to develop a new approach towards our territories and their demands, one that is more contextualized and adjusted to their current and future requirements, a starting point to establish the key elements to drive change in our cities and society. In this sense, technology and digital development, parametric design, the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), in addition to work done with Building Information Modelling (BIM), among many others, have been delivering an enormous amount of tools and possibilities of interaction with living in society, leading to a substantive change in the way of understanding and relating to the built environment and the territories where buildings are sit. This demands a strong commitment to Social Responsibility from our disciplines, besides the necessary landing of cutting-edge technological and digital research and development onto our diverse realities, in order for them to be put at the service of communities in vulnerable environments or with a marked condition of risk, which are subject to constant processes of resilience. Working on Resilience Design allows to support research and productive processes, plus the appearance of new technologies in interdisciplinary contexts, which greatest value is to impact the processes of teaching and professional practice in the different areas related to human habitation. The new professionals will have to take action and immerse themselves into these new scenarios of change and constant adjustment.

This Congress intends to generate a synthesis of research and collective intelligence, where the academic communities of the countries in Latin America and the World can share their knowledge, in a space devoted for presentations and discussions about work on this subject applied to various disciplines. The setting for this new encounter is within the realms of design and project management at all different scales, and art in its multiple expressions, which anticipates a varied and valuable exchange that will promote self-assessment and reformulation of educational paradigms. We invite you to contribute from different areas of interest and from different types of approaches. Suggested, but not exclusive, thematic axes are:

·        Design Theory and Practice in Digital Contexts
·        Teaching in Digital Contexts and History of the Media
·        Digital Manufacturing and Construction
·        Information, Modelling, and Simulations
·        Information, Processing and Visualization
·        Morphogenesis, synthesis, and analysis of shapes
·        Interfaces and devices
·        Cultural Industries and Artistic Practices
·        Crowdthinking

Submissions of abstracts *up to 500 words* are welcomed. In addition, five key words and references must be included. The official languages of SIGraDI are Spanish, English and Portuguese. Abstracts will be reviewed by an International Peer Committee under the following evaluation criteria:

·        Concordance with the theme of the Conference: *Resilience Design*
·        Originality of the theme, problem or project
·        Relevance of the contribution to the field
·        Suitability of the methodology or techniques used
·        Quality of the references
·      Overall organization of the abstract, according to the guidelines defined in this document

The general guidelines of the IMRaD scheme (Introduction, Methodology, Results and Discussion) will be followed for the submission of the summaries; it will be possible to add other subsections that are considered pertinent. Submission of abstracts containing the following sections, with a maximum of 500 words, in addition to references and bibliography is welcomed (this is only intended as a guide; we understand that some summaries may have a different format, however, it is important to keep the evaluation criteria in mind):

·        TITLE _ The title of the candidate paper should be concise and consistent with the purpose of the study.
·        KEYWORDS _ Key words that identify the project. A maximum of five.
·        INTRODUCTION _ What is the problem studied? which is the reason of the proposal? and, what are the objectives set?
·        METHODOLOGICAL PROCEDURES _ Approach to the problem, what it is, how the study was performed; which steps, materials and techniques were used?
·        RESULTS _ What was concluded or what is expected from the study?
·        DISCUSSION _ What is the contribution or possible contribution of the study? Interpretation of the results, discussion of effects, impact and importance for the field.
·        REFERENCES _ Which sources have been or will be consulted?

You may add a single image that does not exceed A4 size at 150 dpi.

Since this is a blind evaluation, the text of the abstract should not mention the names of the authors nor the institution they belong to.

The submission must be uploaded to the website of the event by clicking on Summary/Resumen.

The Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics is a non-profit association that brings together architects, urban planners, designers and artists linked to new digital media and it acts as an interlocutor with similar organizations in Europe (ECAADE), North America (ACADIA), Asia/Oceania (CAADRIA), and West Asia and North Africa (ASCAAD). It holds an Annual Congress where the latest applications and possibilities of graphic technologies are discussed, with the participation of relevant international specialists.

SIGraDI started in 1997, with the first Congress held in the city of Buenos Aires and since that time it has organized an annual congress in different institutions and countries throughout Latin America. The initial objective of SIGraDI is to contribute to the development of academic debate on Information and Communication Technologies, graphic applications, and digital media, as well as to promote the production and advancement of scientific knowledge in general, driving changes related to research, technological transformation, and education. SIGraDI strongly observes and promotes debate and research in this stage of strong technological transformation.

This project, which involves the organization and execution of the 2017 SIGraDI Congress, seeks to be an advance of special events, such as the 25th Anniversary of the Architecture Program at University of Concepción, the 98th Anniversary of the creation of University of Concepción, and the celebration of the 21st Anniversary of SIGraDI.
