Late-Breaking Works

Media Architecture Biennale 2018

Call for Late-Breaking Works


The Late-Breaking Work track at the Media Architecture Biennale 2018 aims to attract participation from a broad range of disciplines covering a spectrum of topics such as prototyping media architecture, early design explorations, human-centred media architecture, multi-modal interaction in media architecture, architectural studies, provocative ideas, etc. We encourage submissions from especially those new to the MAB community. This venue is also an excellent way for those new to the MAB community to share their work and become acquainted with the field.


We encourage researchers and practitioners to submit a Late-Breaking Work extended abstract as it provides a unique opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, eliciting useful feedback on early-stage work, and fostering discussions and collaborations among colleagues. Accepted submissions will be presented at the conference, and published both online and in print (final publishing to be confirmed).


Submission Instructions


  • The submissions should clearly explain the research question or ambition addressed, research methods, intervention strategies and tasks, findings or results, and contributions of the work. Submissions should situate the work in a context of related work, but the focus is on reporting on early results or efforts in progress to move beyond the state of the art. Feel free to include photos and illustrations emphasizing the physical context of the work.


  • Submissions should consist of original work not previously published or concurrently under consideration for any other conference, workshop, journal, or other publication with an ISBN, ISSN or DOI number.


  • Contribution statement: Authors must provide a 30-word contribution statement for their Late-Breaking Work upon submission. The contribution statement should explain the contribution made by the submission to the Media Architecture community.


  • Submissions will be reviewed and selected by a Late-Breaking Works panel.
