    CALL:
    
    Today the digital is ubiquitous across all disciplines.
    
    In film and animation, digital models create fictitious places on scales unimagined. Installation artists make space interactive through digitising motion, sound and heat. Projection mapping allows artists to reinterpret the past in-situ. Photographers use digital cameras to document city stories. Marketing, technology and communication mediates the city experience 24/7
    
    In architecture, computational design uses algorithms to replicate biology. Coding produces self-generated architectural form. Information modeling presents planners with interactive design in real time. The city is seen as ‘smart’. In addition to informing design today however, the digital age also informs how we understand the past. State-of-the-art equipment for geophysics, laser scanning, and compositional analysis are now key tools for archeologists. Data mapping is used by historians.
    
    As the tools we use to create the future and explore or preserve the past merge and blur, this conferences asks educators and professionals from all disciplines to consider how their work is changing as a result, and how it informs and is informed by the work of others.
