ECAADE 2014 CONFERENCE - Fusion: Data integration at its best

The ECAADE (Education and research in Computer Aided Architectural Design) conference is among the most important and long-running events on CAAD - its proceedings a fundamental resource to understand the latest development in this sector. I have been honoured to be invited to present on the 10th of September a paper at the eCAADe 2014 Conference held at the Northumbria University.

The ECAADE event of this year delved into the theme of Data integration presenting a variety of approaches, experiments and educative experiences that reconstructed a very complex picture of the most recent research and practices in the use of CAAD. My contribution focused on the curatorial implications of these phenomena and proposed an educative program to address these novel issues.

Presentations Slides from the DEDICATE FINAL SEMINAR!

The DEDICATE seminar has been a splendid opportunity to discuss the curation and management of Built Environment related data as both a cultural phenomenon interpreted by a variety of professional communities and disciplines and a common technological framework for their activities.

This event especially pointed out the commonalities into both the stakeholders communities' necessities and requirements and, we think, stressed the urgent need for a shared agenda for this field.

I really feel obliged toward all the people that contributed to this event. In particular, I would like to thank all the speakers for both their generous presentations and the precious debate animation that concluded the event.

Today, with some delay, we publish in this post the presentations from the DEDICATE final seminar.
