DIGITAL PHYSICALITY | PHYSICAL DIGITALITY SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
Digitality is the condition of living in a world where ubiquitous
information and communication technology is embedded in the physical world.
Although it is possible to point out what is “digital” and what is “real,”
the distinction has become pointless, and it has no more explanatory power
for our environment, buildings, and behaviour.
Material objects are invested with communication means, teams are
communicating even when not together, and buildings can sense and respond to
the environment, each other, and to inhabitants. Digital is no longer an
add-on, extra, or separate software. Reality is partly digital and partly
The implication of this condition is not clear however, and we need to
investigate its potential. We have to search for new strategies that
acknowledge the synergetic qualities of the physical and the digital. This
is not limited to artifacts or what we design, but it also influences the
process, methods, and what or how we teach.
For the conference therefore, we are looking for contributions that explore
this synergy. Authors are encouraged to submit their work on the conference
