  • Building Information Modeling (BIM)
  • City Information Modeling (CIM)
  • Collective, collaborative & interdisciplinary design
  • Computational design research & education
  • Design cognition and human-computer interaction
  • Disrupted practices, resilience, and social sustainability
  • Environmental and ecological performance
  • Generative, algorithmic & evolutionary design
  • Digital Heritage
  • Interactive environments
  • Material systems, processes and assembly
  • Practice-based design research
  • Robotics, digital fabrication and construction
  • Simulation, visualisation and impact projection
  • Theory, philosophy & methodology of computational design research
  • Urban analytics, big data analysis and smart cities
  • AR / VR / XR

Paper acceptance will be subject to a two-stage reviewing process, consisting of an initial abstract review and a later double-blind peer review of full-length manuscripts.

Enquiries regarding abstract and paper submissions:

Authors can check the status of their submissions and read review feedback by signing-in to openconf24 system under “Authors” and “Check status” with their paper ID and password.

Guide for authors

Authors of accepted abstracts are invited to prepare Full Papers for the second stage of the CAADRIA double-blind peer-review process by using the mandatory CAADRIA2024 template and by submitting their papers via the openconf24 system

The CAADRIA2024 template is a MS Word document that contains all instructions and formatting styles for the full paper submission, including directions about structure, content, length, formatting, image and figure requirements, and the required referencing style.


Full paper submissions for the second stage of the CAADRIA double-blind peer-review process must be prepared using the CAADRIA2024 template and must be submitted via the openconf24 system as a PDF (please note file size is limited to 20MB).


There is no maximum word count for full papers, but there is a limit of 10 pages when entering the text and images into the CAADRIA2024 template. The 10-page limit applies to all content combined, including main text, images, captions, and bibliography. The total page count can be less than 10 pages but must be an even number (6 or 8 pages).


Full paper submission must use in-text references (not footnotes or endnotes) and follow the APA style guidelines. All in-text references and citations should be included in the list of references. Only references that are mentioned in the text should be included in the list.


Full paper submissions for the second stage of the CAADRIA double-blind peer-review process must be BLINDED. This means that authors must not include their names in the full paper submission document and must also remove or redact any identifying information related to the author(s) and their organisations or institutions mentioned in the body text of the full paper and replace this text with REMOVED FOR PEER REVIEW. These redactions can be restored if the paper is accepted for publication in the proceedings and during the camera-ready paper submission stage.

Please note, failure to prepare full paper submissions using the CAADRIA2024 template and to follow the instructions and formatting styles may result in the rejection of full paper submissions.
