will be available to authors after acceptance
a) Peer-reviewed Research Papers:
- Long Papers: 4,000 words max (Presentations ± 15 mins)
- Short Papers: 2000 words max (Presentations ± 7 mins)
Long Papers describe work that is embedded within significant bodies of research or creative practice. A long paper is categorized by research-based projects, design processes, and/or novel techniques and methods which contribute to the advancement of the field of computational design. Papers must be concise and follow the structure of a scientific paper providing: Abstract, Introduction, Background, Methods, Results and Reflection, and Conclusion. Long papers must emphasize the significance of the work and its historical and/or theoretical context. Long papers may also be entirely historical or theoretical in nature.
Long Papers should be no longer than 4,000 words, excluding the abstract, captions and endnotes. Low-resolution images and captions should be embedded in the paper. Please omit all identifying names, places, programs, institutions and firms from the paper to maintain an anonymous review process.
Short Papers describe developing work or an individual project which has yet to be placed within a larger context of on-going research. A short paper is categorized by a novel project, method and/or design approach which has the potential to contribute to the advancement of the field of computational design. Papers should adhere to the following structure: Introduction (including brief description of background and precedents), Methods, Results, and Conclusion (including a reflection upon future development and potential contribution to the field).
Short Papers should be no longer than 2,000 words, excluding the abstract, captions and endnotes. Low-resolution images and captions should be embedded in the paper. Please omit all identifying names, places, programs, institutions and firms from the paper to maintain an anonymous review process.

b) Jury Selected Projects:
The ACADIA 2016 exhibition will highlight experimental projects and design work in which methods, processes, and techniques have been developed or discovered that illuminate the conference theme. Project submissions will be selected by a jury to be exhibited during the conference, and will be published in a full color catalogue. The technical chairs may additionally select certain projects to be presented as a short presentation (+/- 7mins) during the conference sessions. This is a digital competition and no hard-copy proposals will be accepted.
Project Submission deadline: Extended to Midnight EDT Friday May 13, 2016
The project submission will consist of a title, a project description of no more than 600 words, plus a maximum of 20 images, formatted within a letter-sized or A4 document and submitted via the conference submission website as a single, multipage PDF. The text description should comprise the first page of the PDF and each image should be formatted to fit on a single page, oriented either horizontally or vertically. Captions are strongly encouraged as part of the image pages. Please omit all identifying names, places, programs, institutions and firms from the paper to maintain an anonymous review process.
