Georgia Tech Ph.D. Symposium
Divergence in Architectural Research, will take place on the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta, GA, 5–6, Mar 2020. The symposium, organized by the ConCave Ph.D. Program of the School of Architecture at Georgia Tech, seeks to create a platform for sharing current research in architecture with invited scholars and other doctoral students, in architecture and allied fields.
The Call for Papers invites doctoral students to present their ongoing research to help expand the conversation on the state-of-agency in architecture research today. The symposium will act as a nexus for connections with established scholars and fellow researchers. Interested students should submit their abstracts by 7 Sep 2019, on the symposium web site <https://arch.gatech.edu/divergence-symposium>.
