CALL FOR PAPERS: Journal of Engineering Design, Special Issue on Design Creativity

Published:

Guest Editors: Yukari Nagai {ynagai@jaist.ac.jp} and John Gero {john@johngero.com} Design creativity is now discussed at every important conference in the field of design, including the International Conference on Engineering Design. Since 2007, innovation and creativity (innovative design and creativity in design) were one of the main issues dealt with at many design conferences (ICED07, ICED09, DESIGN2010, DCC10). Design creativity then became a keyword for these forums. The International Conference on Computational and Cognitive Models of Creative Design has been running since 1989 indicating the longstanding interest in creativity in the design research community. Studies of design creativity have gained increased importance in design...

DCC 2010 Workshop: Call for Contributions

Published:

SHAPE GRAMMAR IMPLEMENTATION: FROM THEORY TO USEABLE SOFTWARE Shape grammar implementations lag far behind shape grammar theory restricting their application in design practice. This workshop is proposed to show “hands-on”, tell and discuss the current state-of-the-art, limitations and key challenges in shape grammar implementations. The goal is to identify requirements for implementation of shape grammars so that can they can be incorporated in design practice. Initial requirements for useable implementations we anticipate to cover three aspects: * How to integrate shape grammar implementations into the current software toolset (e.g. illustration and sketching software, CAD, CAE)? * How can designers articulate shape grammars...
