Next week is the annual Symposium on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design (SimAUD, pronounced Sim-Odd).

For better or worse SimAUD 2020 has (of course) been moved to a virtual conference.
On the one hand, it’s a bit of a shame as the SimAUDers I’ve met have all been anything but AUD (haha):…
