Call for Papers: Nexus 2012

We are very pleased to issue the first announcement regarding the 9th international, interdisciplinary conference NEXUS 2012: RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ARCHITECTURE AND MATHEMATICS. The conference will take place at11-14 June 2012 in Milan, Italy, hosted by the Department of Industrial Design, Art, Comunication and Fashion (INDACO) and the Department of Mathematics of the Politecnico di Milano.

This Call for Papers can also be accessed from the NNJ homepage,
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 February 2011
The Nexus conferences are dedicated to explorations of the relationships between architecture and mathematics, through a broad panorama of topics. In the past, these topics have included: symmetry in architecture, projective and descriptive geometry, soap bubbles and minimum surfaces, systems of proportions, geometry and urban design, the development of structural forms, the use of arithmetical, geometrical, and harmonic means, calculations of domes and arches, linear algebra and geometric forms, music theory and architecture, fractals in architecture, etc. Presentations have also included discussions of the work of individual architects, such as Alberti, Palladio, Frank Lloyd Wright; historical periods, such as Roman, Incan and Renaissance; the application of particular branches of mathematics to architectural design, such as geometry, topology and algebra.
For the 2012 edition of Nexus we particularly encourage submissions on the following topics:
Architecture and Mathematics
Mathematics and design (formal design, development and representation of complex surfaces, etc.)
Architecture and music
Architecture and astronomy / archaeoastronomy
Mathematics and urban design and planning
Mathematics and configuration (geometric models for designing)
