1st International Conference on Digital Architecture Research
Faculty of Architecture _____ Bialystok University of Technology
1st - 3rd of March 2023
The intention behind the conference is to offer an opportunity to exchange knowledge to discuss concepts and developments in the field of architectural computing / design digital
media. We want to pay particular attention to PhD research in the field, however all interested researchers are welcome to submit a paper and attend the conference
Digital media and computation have already permeated probably all spheres of architecture - from drafting, design processes, through methodologies, to communication, education, fabrication and construction. It becomes obvious that computing brings new levels to overall reality of design. Therefore it rises as a very wide and exciting sphere for research.
Critical reflection on the influences and possibilities that digital media and computation approaches bring to architecture, is crucial for the development of the field, through the production of new knowledge. The new, dynamically evolving design environment, undisputably changes both design and architecture itself, changing the physical built environment, but also allows to emerge purely digital worlds.
Research in this area, in most cases, does not focus on "what is" knowledge, it rather explores new possibilities, processes, solutions and products, those that did not exist before.
Design computing research is focused on change - in design tools, digital tools design, methods, concepts and their outcomes. This specific feature of the field also influences and changes doctoral research - in both: content and structures of the research projects, as well as organisational frameworks within which they are conducted.
We do hope that DARe conference will become a forum on which these exciting aspects will be presented and discussed.
For the first 16 PhD candidates, who will submit a full paper we will offer the scholarship that shall cover all costs of the conference participation.
All accepted papers will be published in the dedicated monograph.
The organizers encourage but not limit conference participants to choose topics from the presented list.

Participants who will be granted a scholarship, will have the fee paid by the organizers.
DARe conference is organized by the Faculty of Architecture, Bialystok University of Technology, Bialystok, Poland, with the support from the Polish National Agency for Scientific Exchange NAWA and Polish Ministry of Education and Science.
The Faculty of Architecture of the Bialystok University of
Technology is happy to announce that 16 scholarships will be offered for foreign (non - Polish) doctoral researchers
to enable participation in the conference (a grant will cover travel,
accomodation and subsistence costs, as a lump sum refund).
In order to be allowed to apply for a scholarship, you must be either enrolled as a doctoral student or have your PhD project formally open. The scholarships are funded by the Polish National Agency of Academic Exchange. Grants will be offered to the first 16 potential participants, who will submit a full paper (based on the accepted abstract).
Application procedure will start when the registration for the conference is open.
