Assistant Professor Dimitris Papanikolaou has been elected to the editorial board of the International Journal of Architectural Computing. The International Journal of Architectural Computing (IJAC) is a peer-reviewed journal founded by international organizations dedicated to promoting collaborative research and development of computer-aided architectural design. Papanikolaou was elected through the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture, an international network of digital design researchers and professionals.
Papanikolaou's position is held jointly between the School of Architecture and the Department of Software and Information Systems. His research investigates design and analysis of enabling systems that connect humans, objects, and places cooperatively across scales, physically or digitally. His interests include ubiquitous computing, computer-supported cooperative work, complex systems modeling and simulation, human-machine interaction, decision-support systems, and design research.
Papanikolaou is also the founder and director of the Urban Synergetics Lab, which recently received a “Celebrate Charlotte Arts” grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Read about that award and the project "Charlotte Breaths" here.
