SiGradDi 2010: Disruption, Modelling, and Construction: Shifting Dialogues (Nov 2010, Bogota Columbia)

SiGraDi (Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics) has been organizing conferences since 1997 and is the Southamerican peer of ECAADE, ACADIA, CAADRIA and ASCAAD, which some of you might be familiar with.  See

Congress that will be held between 17th and 19th November 2010 in Bogota, Colombia. It will be hosted by Universidad de los Andes, and put together by the Architecture and Design Department along with Engineering, Arts and Mathematics Departments in search for connections between disciplines.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is 1 April 2010.

Our 2010 main theme is Disruption, Modeling and Construction: Shifting Dialogues.
