Informal and fun gatherings to get together and share ideas!


We would like to propose an untypical but increasingly popular – even outside architecture and design worlds – PowerPoint presentation format for this academic conference. Hence, we would try to encourage interactive paper sessions, like engaging chit-chat to encourage dialogue and response. Pecha Kucha presentations imposes succinctness in speaking AND listening by avoiding text-heavy slides – but demands less preparation work than a TEDx speech! We therefore ask you to share only select ideas and thoughts on your topic to produce that elusive spark in the minds of participants.


  •   Send your final extended abstract ASAP
  •   Read all the abstracts of your session – as a presenter or a listener!Best practices
  •   Carefully choose and show 20 images – as a storyline, each for 20 seconds
  •   Automate the animation of your presentation such that your talk flows with the projected images
  •   Do not use too much text and avoid bullet points
