H5. Computational simulation, modelling and visualisation of cities

Supporting more than 50% of the world's population, Cities are large, complex and dynamic man-made systems. The planning of future cities is a challenge that can only be faced by developing new knowledge on the social, environmental and economic structure of these large and evolving artifacts. Modelling, visualization and simulation methods for understanding the morphological structure of human settlements are needed.

The focus of this session will be on tools, methods, and theories that support the design of new cities and the transformation of existing cities. This session will address spatial, temporal and visual modeling of settlement form, urban simulation, city visualization, parametric modeling, inference and prediction models, generative and procedural modeling techniques and optimization methods.

Research topics include:

Technical, theoretical and applied papers on research, teaching, practice and experience reports, or novel applications relating to topics above are encouraged.
