Call For Papers
Computer-Aided Design is a leading international journal that provides academia and industry with key papers on research and developments in the application of computers to design.

Computer-Aided Design invites papers reporting new research, as well as novel or particularly significant applications, within a wide range of topics, spanning all stages of design process from concept creation to manufacture and beyond. Examples of relevant topics include but are not limited to:

• Foundational theories, frameworks, methodologies, and standards
• Geometric and topological methods for shape and solid modeling
• Structural, material and physical modeling
• Virtual reality and prototyping methods
• Advanced support of manufacturing and downstream activities of product realization
• User interfaces, system interfaces and system interoperability
• Knowledge-intensive technologies for design
• Design databases, knowledge repositories, object libraries and retrieval
• Modeling and design of multi-scale objects and systems
• Specific applications and significant benchmarks of computer-aided design
• Emergent issues of advanced design support
• Uncertainty and imprecision in computer-aided design

Contributions are welcome from all disciplines, provided that they have a significant geometric, topological, spatial, or configuration design content, and present developments likely to be of interest to a broad spectrum of researchers, educators, and practitioners of computer-aided design.

Types of Papers:

Research papers: will report significant research and development results, describe the relevant theoretical foundations and the methodology, and present workable algorithms and give examples taken from real world applications, stressing the significance of the approach being presented.

Application papers: will describe complex and pioneering applications of CAD concepts, methods and tools in practice, present significant results that extend the disciplinary knowledge and/or analyze the application in a way that is likely to stimulate and influence further research.

Survey papers: will critically analyze the current state of knowledge in a given field of CAD, summarize and organize recent research results in a novel way, derive new insights and add understanding to working in the field, and propose possible topics, orientations and approaches for future research and development.

Technical notes: will respond to material published in the journal or closely related topics, repair a flaw in the definition and approach or stimulate further thinking, or provide additional technical details on a CAD theory, technology, methodology, product or application.

Special Issue on Computational Modeling, Design and Fabrication for Textiles
Submission Date: 2021-04-02

Textiles are some of the earliest human-produced artifacts, with the oldest known examples dating back more than 30,000 years. The history of textiles has been one of constant innovation in materials, manufacturing, and design. Today, the textiles industry accounts for about 4% of the world’s GDP, and textiles technologies and materials are used in almost every area of human endeavour, including -- to name a few -- medical implants, haute couture, lightweight rocket fuel tanks, firefighting equipment, and architecture. These applications are enabled by the complexity and flexibility of textiles as engineering materials. Their highly non-linear and stochastic mechanical and shaping behaviours make textiles a versatile and capability-rich option for many advanced material applications, allowing them to provide remarkably varied shapes and non-uniform and/or directional characteristics. While textiles show great promise for a wide range of engineering functions, their use has been limited by a lack of powerful and robust modeling and design tools that would enable virtual simulation and analysis in support of design exploration and optimization. In the past several years there has been increasing research activity, across multiple disciplines, in the areas of computational modelling, design and fabrication, with a segment of that activity focused on textiles. In order to bring together the researchers from these diverse fields this special issue will offer a common forum for sharing state-of-the-art research on computational modeling, design and fabrication for textiles, with the scope of the issue covering all types of textiles and fabrics, including braids, felts, wovens, and knits. Researchers and experts from academia and industry are invited to share their original work by submitting research, review, and application papers. The objective of the issue is to promote the contributions of this emerging technical area, to distribute recent insights and findings, and to stimulate further research in this fertile multi-disciplinary research domain. Examples of textile-related topics include, but are not limited to: Modeling and simulation of textile mechanics Shape modeling of textile structures Appearance/shading models Interactive, inverse and optimized design methods Computational exploration of design spaces Automated fabrication of textiles Manufacturability and performance analysis Textile devices and sensors Innovative textile applications Survey of the state-of-the-art in CAD/modeling tools
