Consequent to the success of its previous editions in 2016, 2018, and 2020 the fourth edition of the ‘Parallelism in Architecture, Engineering & Computing Techniques’ conference will be held in collaboration with the University of East London (UEL) in London, United Kingdom.
This conference unveils the latest trends of architectural technologies and computational thinking as a way of improving the performance of computational design software in architectural and engineering discourses. In a fast-paced world and in light of recent technological advancements due to industrialization and globalization, the way we see the universe has changed. That being said, the conference will shed a light on the ways in which parallelism can be integrated into different architectural and computing dialogues through stimulating a discussion on topics of Complex Digital Fabrication, Augmented Reality, Intelligent Environments, Advanced Fabrication Technologies, Big Data and more.
Through an analysis of the representation of Parallelism, this conference will work towards revealing the relationship between the Environment, Architecture, and Computing Techniques. Through a set of diversified yet pertinent sessions, the conference will focus on:
This conference aims to explore the complexity that is embedded within the computation discourse under the theme of parallelism. Introducing world-renowned keynote speakers in the field, such as Patrik Schumacher during PACT of 2016 and Gabriele Sorrento in PACT of 2018, this conference will generate stimulating discussions led by experts in the field.

All accepted papers of the Parallelism in Architecture, Engineering & Computing Techniques(4th PACT) after the peer-review process will be either published as chapters in the Book Series “Advances in Science, Technology and Innovation” (ASTI) by Springer or in The International Journal of Academic Research Community Publication (ARChive) online by IEREK Press.
The ASTI Book Series by Springer is by highly professional members of an International Editorial Board to ensure a high-quality publication material to be eventually published online and printable.
The ASTI Book Series is indexed Scopus and will be submitted for indexation in Web of Science (ISI) and EI-Compendex databases.
To publish your research in the online Journal or Book by 'Springer' and provide it with world-wide visibility, authors must submit an extended version of their short papers that are 8 -12 pages long.
If you are not sure whether you or one of your co-authors will be able to attend the conference, you should bear in mind that there is a fee to be paid for Audiences (Co-authors, Learners, and Interests). The accepted paper will not be included in the conference proceedings without paying the fee (see Conference Fees for more details). A research paper fee allows only one author, whether main or co-author, to attend the conference and receive only one copy of the conference abstract book in both hard and soft copies. Extras can be requested for a fee shown below.
Publishing in ASTI by Springer (Scopus indexed)
After the conference, the submitted manuscripts of authors interested in publishing in the ASTI book series will undergo a rigorous peer review process resulting in a final decision made by the editors. Only accepted research will be published as a chapter in the Book Series entitled “Advances in Science, Technology and Innovation” (ASTI) by Springer. The ASTI Book Series is by managed highly professional members of an International Editorial Board to ensure high-quality material for online publication.
The ASTI Book Series is fully indexed in Scopus. Some titles have been successfully indexed or submitted for indexation in Web of Science (ISI).
About the ASTI series
Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation (ASTI) is a series of peer-reviewed books based on important emerging research that redefines the current disciplinary boundaries in science, technology and innovation (STI) in order to develop integrated concepts for sustainable development. It not only discusses the progress made towards securing more resources, allocating smarter solutions, and rebalancing the relationship between nature and people, but also provides in-depth insights from comprehensive research that addresses the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) as set out by the UN for 2030.
The series draws on the best research papers from various IEREK and other international conferences to promote the creation and development of viable solutions for a sustainable future and a positive societal transformation with the help of integrated and innovative science-based approaches. Including interdisciplinary contributions, it presents innovative approaches and highlights how they can best support both economic and sustainable development, through better use of data, more effective institutions, and global, local and individual action, for the welfare of all societies.
The series particularly features conceptual and empirical contributions from various interrelated fields of science, technology and innovation, with an emphasis on digital transformation, that focus on providing practical solutions to ensure food, water and energy security to achieve the SDGs. It also presents new case studies offering concrete examples of how to resolve sustainable urbanization and environmental issues in different regions of the world.
The series is intended for professionals in research and teaching, consultancies and industry, and government and international organizations. Published in collaboration with IEREK, the Springer ASTI series will acquaint readers with essential new studies in STI for sustainable development.

London is the capital of England and the United Kingdom. It’s considered as one of the world’s most important, sustainable, visited cities. London contains many Heritage and Cultural sites like The Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral and London Eye. Here are some of the interesting things to do while visiting London.
The Tower of London is one of the world’s most leading tourist attractions and a world heritage site which attracts visitors from all over the world. It’s located on the north bank of the River Thames on the border with the central city of London.
The British Museum is a unique museum that brings together the cultures of the world, continents, spanning and oceans under one roof, not like any other museum’s collections have the same breadth, beauty, depth, and significance. It has about eight million objects which allow us to discover many forms of expressions from the ancient world and explore the extraordinary diversity of human cultures from different communities and empires.
The Cathedral was constructed in the 11th century and now It’s one of the most famous sights of London. It’s iconic building is the second-largest building in the United Kingdom after Liverpool Cathedral.
Coca-Cola London Eye trip is a must-do and has been the visitor’s number one experience for over a decade since it was Built to mark London's millennium celebrations in 2000. Once you step into your capsule you will feel the exhilaration as you rise up over the River Thames. With rising 443 feet over the Thames, your trip will last for only 30 minutes, but you will enjoy seeing spectacular views from your individual glass capsule like Big Ben and the houses of Parliament.
