1st INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON URBAN EXPERIENCE AND DESIGN

Researchers, scholars, architects, planners, and designers, are all invited to submit proposals for presentation at this landmark event. Speakers will explore the implications of embodied cognition, cognitive architecture, biology, and evolution, as well as new research methods and techniques for using biometrics in urban planning, architecture, and landscape architecture.

Modern neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and psychology, coupled with powerful new biometric tools able to measure the human experience of place, provide new information and methods for understanding, creating and assessing architecture and urban spaces. This conference will bring together creative thinkers from around the world who are advancing knowledge in these areas, helping to shape a new kind of design practice, one that embraces the unconscious responses we have to external stimuli and is evidence-based.

Abstracts were due December 1, 2018. Notifications were made on December 4, 2018 and 15-20 page papers will be due by March 15, 2019.
