IJAC – International Journal of Architectural Computing

IJAC | International Journal of Architectural Computing*
We invite authors to submit original research papers for the issue scheduled for May/June 2012, under the title

Augmented Culture**
Gabriela Celani and Eduardo Nardelli
Guest editors
Deadline January 15th, 2012

Augmented Culture talks about a combination of interdependent social and technological meanings in a complex, multiple, interactive and interconnected context. It acknowledges that a new social and cultural paradigm is being developed as the old barriers of time, space and language are ruptured and transcended. In our knowledge-based civilization, we inhabit interconnected societies where new relational forms are configured. Additionally, cultural expressions have been qualitatively augmented starting from their integration with information and communication technologies, which have dramatically enhanced not only their creative and reflective processes, but also the realization and construction of cultural objects.

In this sense, an Augmented Culture compels us to investigate the wide and complex spectrum of the variables that express the interdisciplinary, collective and participative constructions of our present age, so strongly related to visual culture, information culture and interface culture. Thus, we consider it necessary to concentrate, to expand, to spread and to share exploratory, descriptive or explanatory experiences and productions of such phenomena. The attempt is to define a multidimensional theoretical framework that while recognizing today’s state-of-the-art and tendencies, providing us with a critical viewpoint.

Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers that have not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration for another journal.
