Welcome to the Symposium on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design at the 2010 Spring Simulation Multiconference (SpringSim'10).
This new Symposium on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design offers a venue for architecture researchers and simulation researchers to come together to focus on this important area. Buildings are the largest consumers of energy responsible for 48% of all Green House Gas emissions and due to the complexity and multidisciplinary aspects of architecture design and construction, and urban design and society, modeling and simulation become valuable techniques to understand and optimize this enormous challenge. Scientists, engineers, managers, educators, and business professionals who develop or use simulation tools are invited to participate and present original papers.
