CGiV2013 - International Symposium
Visualisation in Built Environment, BuiltVis

6-8 August, 2013

● University of Macau ● Macau ● China

The rapid development of information technologies, and the extent to which IT and visualisation have become pervasive in architecture and construction, mean that processes, methods, theories and key research themes require study and debate. Builtviz will address many of these key themes, and provide an environment within which discussion can lead to fruitful new ideas, and allow participants to make contact with peers from across the globe.


The conference will include sessions structured to provide a range of paper, poster and panel discussion events. Papers are invited which present original research under the overall conference theme of ‘Visualisation in built and rural environments’.


Papers are welcomed, but are not limited to, research in the following areas.

·         Visualisation as a decision-aid for construction and architectural management

·         2D, 3D, 4D and nD  modelling, simulation and visualisation in AEC

·         Visualisation of design and construction processes

·         Design decision support systems

·         Health, safety and risk management via visualisation

·         Interoperability and standards in AEC

·         Mobile and ubiquitous environments

·         Smart buildings

·         Virtual and augmented reality tools in AEC prototyping

·         Perception and expectation of visualisation tools in AEC

·         Visualisation on aesthetic values in architecture and construction

·         Collaborative virtual environments in AEC

·         Emergent technologies in collaborative working

·         3D scanning and virtual site representation

·         Visualisation in architectural product design

·         Facilities management

·         Landscape & rural environmental visualisation

·         Visualisation as a decision-aid for planning

·         Remote sensing, Lidar and other automated environmental data capture processes

·         3D geographic information systems

·         Standardisation and interoperability in such applications

·         Visualisation in concurrent engineering

·         Cognitive and sensory computing in AEC

·         Visual impact assessment

·         Validation of the reliability of judgements in AEC and planning from visual imagery
