International Journal of Architectural Computing: IJAC

An exciting new Journal for researchers, educationalists, and practitioners working in the field of Computer Aided Architectural Design.

International Journal of Architectural Computing (IJAC) is an exciting new peer-reviewed journal founded by international organizations dedicated to promoting collaborative research and development of computer-aided architectural design. It will be available both in paper format, and on-line. IJAC is committed to deepening the understanding of the foundations of digital systems for architectural design and the technologies, enabling their development and application.

IJAC publishes 4 issues a year at cost to make it affordable to as wide an audience as possible. Successively, one issue each year is supervised by Editorial Board members from its four founding organizations: Education and Research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe (eCAADe), the Association of Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA), Sociedad Iberoamericana de Grafica Digital” (SIGraDi), and Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA). The editorial board is composed of members from each of these organisations, and each organisation takes prime responsibility for one issue per year. The Journal is also actively supported by the CAADFutures Foundation.

The journal features high-quality, original research papers (including state-of-the-art reviews), brief papers, and letters in all theoretical and technology areas that make up the field of Architectural Computing. Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers, which have not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration for another journal or conference.

Each manuscript prepared for IJAC must fall into one of the following categories:

(1) Original research papers
(2) State-of-the-art reviews
(3) Short papers
(4) Letters and Book Reviews

The manuscripts submitted to IJAC are subjected to a rigorous review process handled by the Editors-in-Chief and designated Editorial Board Member(s). The editors warmly invite contributions addressing subjects in the field of Architectural Computing.

Any queries about submission of papers can be addressed to the Coordinating (Regional) Editors for an upcoming Issue, or to the Editor in Chief, Andre Brown

Submission of papers for review is via an on-line system. Information on the Journal, paper layouts etc can be found at
