Showcasing the latest developments in digital manufacturing, material optimisation and design method innovation

The Institution recognises that practical design methods and real world application of advanced high-speed computation in daily design work is the key to a better built environment for all.

Building on the success of our 2019 conference, this two-day event explores practical digital tools, innovative design methodologies, material optimisation and digital manufacturing.

 

Programme

Day one is dedicated to hands-on workshops demonstrating optimisation techniques, ‘optioneering’ with materials and structural forms. Attendees will gain practical advice on the use of unfamiliar materials in everyday design work through digital tools.

Bill Baker, an Institution Gold Medallist and the engineer behind the Burj Khalifa, is the keynote discussing design in the computational age. Further leading international experts will showcase their own digital journeys and computational methods via presentations and case studies on day two, with panel discussions focusing on developments in:

  • Digital manufacturing and accessing new materials
  • Material optimisation and design method innovation
  • Circular economy and building analytics
  • Maintaining quality and safety of design

 

Benefits of attendance:

  • Learn about cutting edge structural design skills and technologies
  • Attend hands-on workshops to boost the skills of your engineers at all levels
  • Discover technologies to boost productivity, accuracy and quality of your structural design work
  • A unique opportunity to network with global leaders in the field of digital design

 

Call for presentations

The Institution is issuing a call for presentations for this conference, and welcomes papers on any digitally focused presentation proposal related to the following themes:

  • Digital manufacturing
  • Material optimisation
  • Design method innovation
  • Circular economy and building analytics (costing, carbon etc.)
  • Accessing new materials through digital tools
  • Maintaining quality and safety of design
