INTRODUCTION

The first international symposium on space syntax is being held  the 16th,
17th and 18th April 1997 at University College London, preceded by a
workshop on the most recent developments in the techniques on Tuesday, 15th
April. The aim of the symposium is to bring together the researchers and
designers in many countries who are currently using space syntax
techniques, to make and hear presentations of recent work, to take part in
discussions of theoretical and methodological issues, and to explore
directions for future research.

Space syntax is a set of techniques usually, but not always, involving
computers for the analysis of spatial configurations of all kinds,
especially where spatial configuration seems to be a significant aspect of
human affairs, as it is in buildings and cities. Originally conceived by
Professor Bill Hillier and his colleagues in The Bartlett School of
Architecture and Planning at University College London in the 1970's as a
tool to help architects simulate the likely effects of their designs, it
has since then grown to become a tool used around the world in a variety of
research fields and applications. It has been extensively applied in
architecture and urban design, and more recently  has been used in studies
in planning, transportation and interior design. Over the past decade,
space syntax techniques have also been used for research in fields as
diverse as archaeology, information technology, urban and human geography,
and anthropology.

The symposium is for researchers, academics, architects, planners and many
others from around the world who have applied space syntax methodology in
their field of expertise or are interested in learning more about its
possible applications in research and design. Of special interest will be
presentations which detail the innovative use of space syntax techniques in
researching theoretical and practical issues of the built environment, the
use of the methodology for research in related fields and its application
in design and planning projects in every part of the world.

Further details on the symposium and the latest up-to-date information can

INVITATION

Researchers, academics, architects, planners and anyone else who has
applied space syntax methodology in their field of expertise, or is
interested in hearing how space syntax may be applied, are welcome to
attend the 1st international gathering devoted to space syntax.
Presentations will detail the innovative use of space syntax in researching
theoretical and practical issues of the built environment, the use of the
methodology for research in related fields and its application in design
and planning projects in any part of the world.

Sessions of the symposium will include the following themes:

*       Theoretical and Methodological Development
*       UrbanAnalysis
*       Complex Buildings
*       Domestic Space
*       Applications in Other Fields
*       Applications in Design
