Call for Papers | Rob|Arch 2014: Robotic Fabrication in Architecture, Art, and Design


ROB|ARCH has been initiated by the Association for Robots in Architecture as a new conference series on the use of robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design, closely linking industry with cutting-edge research institutions. In December 2012 the conference was hosted by its founders in Vienna, Austria. In 2014 the conference travels to North America, hosted by the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

 Continuing with the previous theme of collaboration, the conference seeks to bring together artists, designers, fabricators, and industry leaders for the purpose of advancing the discourse surrounding robotic fabrication. Following on the success of ROB|ARCH 2012, the conference will again present a series of workshops held at select research institutions on the east coast of the United States, aimed at exposing the advanced capabilities of applied robotic research. Following the workshops, the conference will span two days at the University of Michigan Campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan, about an hour outside of Detroit, the origin of robotics in North America. The internationally renowned publishing house Springer Wien/New York will publish and market the proceedings of the conference worldwide.

But do not forget that writing a doctoral dissertation on your own is a very, very difficult task that cannot be solved without the appropriate knowledge. I personally recommend everyone to familiarize themselves with this site, it is here that you can find all the necessary information in order to independently write a high-quality dissertation. It also has everything you need to hire an experienced professional that matches your academic level.
