Brief update regarding upcoming key events and activities

Dear Colleagues,

Here is a brief update regarding upcoming key events and activities:

The EAAE Annual Conference and General Assembly 2018, taking place between 29 August and 1 September 2018 in Porto and hosted by FAUP, is getting closer. The Portuguese experience will enrichen our understanding of local and global issues and practices. The VELUX Group, manufacturing roof windows and skylight and with sales operations in more than 40 countries, will be supporting the conference activities as main sponsor. VELUX organizes since many years in Europe and globally the International VELUX Award for students of architecture focusing on daylighting, sustainability and health, thus relating to the theme of EAAE conference. Registration for the Annual Conference and General Assembly will be launched in the next days. Please check the EAAE homepage regularly for further information.

In the General Assembly this year, we will be electing four new Council members. I encourage you to nominate your candidates and to participate numerously in the elections. The Information for this will be available in May. After the publication of the Research Charter in 2012, we are excited that the working group of the Education Academy will be presenting the EAAE Education Charter to the General Assembly.

Even before, between 16 and 19 May 2018, the EAAE/ARCC Biannual Conference will be held in Philadelphia, PA, hosted by Temple University in partnership with Jefferson University and Drexel University. The conference in 2020 will take place in Valencia and will be hosted by UPV School of Architecture.

In mid-June parallel to the International Conference of ACSA ( a workshop from Education Academy is planned. Regarding this more information will be available on the EAAE hompepage very soon. The Research Academy will be present and will lead discussion sessions at the next CA2RE Conference by Aarhus School of Architecture.

EAAE’s website, social media and newsletter are also at the disposition of its member schools to inform about activities and open positions. We will be very happy to hear from you!
