English abstract:
Papers in this issue are by authors who presented their research at the 2005 CAAD Futures Conference. This is a biennial Conference that aims to promote the advancement of Computer Aided Architectural Design and thereby the quality of the built environment. The conferences are organised under the auspices of the CAAD Futures Foundation . The series of conferences started in 1985 in Delft, and has since travelled to Eindhoven, Boston, Zurich, Pittsburgh, Singapore, Munich, Atlanta and Tainan.
The conference showed that CAAD continues to be a particularly dynamic field of research and development that is evolving on many fronts. CAAD tools have become ubiquitous for all professionals in the design disciplines. At the same time, techniques and tools from other fields and uses are entering the field of architectural design, and applications and ideas are consequently being refined and extended.
The Vienna University of Technology hosted CAAD Futures 2005. Following the conference papers were invited from selected authors. The papers selected were chosen on the basis that they presented rigorous, high-quality research and up-to-date developments that were of particular interest to the readers of Automation in Construction.
