Vol. 1: Bob MARTENS (ed.): The Future of Endoscopy. Proceedings of the 2nd European Architectural Endosocpy Asscociation-Conference in Vienna, Austria, 1995. In engl. language, 153 p., 64 fig., 14,60 Euros
EAEA ’95 Vienna aimed at a critical investigation of today’s endoscopic culture with regard to future developments. The Aspern-Workshop represented the highlight of this conference. Prior to the conference nine universities had submitted endoscopic and computer-assisted space simulations for this urban expansion area north of the Vienna Danube. The outcome was not to be regarded as a “noble competition” between the various institutions participating, but rather to sound out the actual potential of various simulation techniques and their combinations for future use. The conference proceedings contain the papers presented at the meeting by 23 experts from 15 universities. The papers cover such areas as the technical features of endoscopy and environmental simulation, theories supporting the use of endoscopy, practical applications, and discussions on the future of endoscopy and environmental simulation in comparison with other means of architectural representation.
Vol. 2: Bob MARTENS (Ed.): Full Scale Modeling in the Age of Virtual Reality. Proceedings of the the 6th European Full-scale Modeling Association-Conference in Vienna, Austria, 1996. In engl. language, 140 p., 81 fig., 15 Graph., 14,60 Euros
In the early eighties the European Full-scale Modeling Association (abrev. EFA, full-scale standing for 1:1 or simulation in full-scale) was founded acting as the patron of a conference every two years. In line with the conference title “Full-scale Modeling in the Age of Virtual Reality” the participants were particularly concerned with the relationship of physical 1:1 simulations and VR. The assumption that those creating architecture provide of a higher degree of affinity to physical than to virtual models and prototypes was subject of vivid discussions.
Vol. 3: Bob MARTENS, Helena LINZER, Andreas VOIGT (eds.): Challenges of the Future. Proceedings of the 15th Education in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe-Conference in Vienna, Austria, 1997. CD-ROM in engl. language; 14,60 Euros
“Challenges of the Future” features the further advancement regarding computer-assisted design and planning processes with close consideration of research teaching throughout the design and planning professions. Recent novel technologies in the development are discussed redarding their impact. More than 65 contributions offer insight into the focal issues of Spatial Modeling, Digital Design Process and Collaborative Teamwork.

Vol. 4: Kurt RICICA, Andreas VOIGT (eds.); Ulrike HASLINGER, Michael KOSZ, Helena LINZER, Rainer MADERTHANER, Rainer MAYERHOFER, Kurt RICICA, Jürgen RIENESL, Stefan SALHOFER, Sepp SNIZEK, Andreas VOIGT, Hans Peter WALCHHOFER: Spatial compatibility as a contribution to sustainable land use. A Guide. 3 volumes. Vienna, 1998, 140 p., 14,60 Euros
Spatial Impact as Contribution Regarding Sustainable Utilization of Space: The creative dialogue of “planning” and critical “reviewing” of planning work and projects with a relation to space fundamentally aims at a “sustainable utilization of space” in line with the key-pattern for “sustainability”. Reviewing of spatial impact first will call for the model-representation of space. In addition, all effects resulting from planning and projects for the area under investigation are to be demonstrated clearly and thoroughly. The description of space therefore is accomplished according to system elements and system relations. The spatial impact analysis is to be regarded generally as a contribution for objectifying, adding transparency and comprehension to planning processes.
Vol. 5: Bob MARTENS (Ed.) Full-Scale Modeling and the Simulation of Artificial Light. Vienna, 1999, 14,60 Euros
In times where computer-assisted representations dominate the “market” of visual simulation, the major strongholds of simulation in full-scale in conveying (artificial) light configurations have been observed. Can the gap between imagination and translation thereof into reality be bridged?
Vol. 6: Wolf Michael Oliver TSCHUPPIK: The Other Reality – On the Shape of Real Scale Simulation in Architecture. Vienna, 1999, 14,60 Euros
The term “simulation” is diametrically opposed to “reality” by definition, yet real-scale simulations can clearly be assigned to a real world with real things. The possibly different ways of acting and looking at things give the present work its title. In the form of chapters linked together in cycles, an attempt is made to explain the autonomy of the medium with regard to architecture-related perception. Special attention is paid to the respective relation to built or merely drawn reality.
Vol. 7: Andreas VOIGT, Bob MARTENS, Helena LINZER: SPACE@ Research positions on the habitat. Vienna, 2003, 14,60 Euros
The Institute for Spatial Interaction and Simulation has chosen the relationship field “Man and Space” as its central theme: Humans and space are intensely interrelated. On the one hand, features of space influence human perception; on the other hand, people affect space, change and shape it. Visualisation and modelling can improve the quality of communication. The simulation of spaces and processes with special consideration of applied methods, media and techniques is subsequently the subject of the institute’s activities. In a celebratory meeting of the Institute on the occasion of its 5th anniversary, it was agreed at Plankenstein Castle to issue a publication, which is now available as volume 7 of the Institute’s series of publications under the title “Raum@ Positionen der Forschung zum Lebensraum”. The contributions reflect the diverse knowledge of the Institute’s members and thus cover a broad range of topics in the dialogue between humans and space. Various elements and relations of the complex system of space are illuminated.
Vol. 8: Bob MARTENS, Alexander G. KEUL (eds.): Evaluation in Progress Strategies for Environmental Research and Implementation. Abstracts of the 18th Conference of the International Association for People-Environment Studies in Vienna, Austria, 2004. CD-ROM in english language; 35 Euros
400 planners and social scientists met at the Vienna University of Technology from 7 to 10 July 2004. The focus of IAPS 18 was the upcoming “Reconstruction East” in the course of EU enlargement, which is not only to be seen as an economic-organisational achievement, but also requires social compatibility and evaluation of the planning consequences.
IAPS, the International Association of People-Environment Studies, has been promoting the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas between planning and social sciences, i.e. above all between spatial planning, architecture, psychology and sociology, since 1969. Thematic blocks of the 18th IAPS conference in 2004 included participation, tourism, environmental protection, health, safety, special user groups, gender, creative environments and environmental simulation.
The CD-Rom contains descriptions of all 382 contributions (in symposia, paper sessions, workshops and poster sessions) of the important Vienna conference event. In addition, about 2,400 abstracts of all past IAPS conferences from 1969-2002 are included and accessible by full text search – a unique database for interdisciplinary enthusiasts.

Vol. 10: Andreas VOIGT, Hans Peter WALCHHOFER (Hrsg.); Cooperative Planning in the New Europe; IRIS-ISIS Series of publications no. 10; IFOER Series of publications no. 5; Österreichischer Kunst- und Kulturverlag, Vienna, 2006, 64 p., 19,00 Euros
Cooperative planning in the New Europe “Cooperative planning” in the context of a “New Europe” will increasingly require local and global thought and action. A connection has to be made between “virtual, global spatial processes” and “real, local spatial structures”. The discipline of strategic planning, rather “abstract” in spatial terms and directed towards thought and decision-making processes, towards spatial processes of development and renewal, has to be closely linked to the increasingly “concrete” field of physical planning, which relates to spatial structures. The common living space provides the frame of reference for the application of space-related concepts and planning processes which are translated into reality through the actions of people. It is this indivisible living space that we have to shape together.
Vol. 11: Leslie CHAN, Bob MARTENS (eds.): Openness in Digital Publishing: Awareness, Discovery and Access / Proceedings of the ELPUB 2007 conference held at the Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria. In engl. langugae, 476 p., 54,95 Euros
This proceedings contains close to sixty papers on various aspects of electronic publishing that have been successfully submitted for the 11th ELPUB conference, hosted by the Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria. The 11th international ELPUB conference was dedicated to exploring the various aspects of “Openness in Digital Publishing”, most of the papers deal directly or indirectly with issues related to open standards, interoperability, open content, open access, and new business and publishing models enabled by new tools and frameworks. Unlike previous ELPUB meetings where papers were streamed into “General” and “Technical” sessions, papers this year were grouped according to common themes, regardless of whether the papers were more technical or general in nature. These themes are: Open Access and New Publishing Models, Emerging Business Models for e-Content Delivery, Enabling Accessibility, Development of Repository and Publishing Tools, Assessment of Open Access and Enabling Frameworks, Open Access Journals and Regional Perspectives, Ontology and Meaning Extraction, Digital Heritage and Access, Impact Analysis and Open Access Journals, Web 2.0 and Social Media, and Interoperability and Open Repositories.
Vol. 12: Isabel WIESHOFER: REGIO@ – Research positions on regional space. Vienna, 2009, 14,60 Euros
This volume follows the IRIS-ISIS publication on Space@ (2003) and refers, in general terms, to the primary overarching scale dimensions in the field of planning. However, as in the previous volume, the relationship field of people and space functions as a “red thread”. Questions about the possibility of sustainable development, the identity of landscape and city or regional settlement models impose themselves on spatial planning. These questions were answered by the authors in Volume 12, and the interrelationships were applied to and examined in the region. In addition to cities, metropolises and megacities, peripheral spaces that are rarely studied in urban planning, urban design, urban sociology and related disciplines are also considered here.
Vol. 13: Andreas VOIGT, Hans Peter WALCHHOFER (eds.); Viennese Model, Viennese Philosophicum; IRIS-ISIS Series of publications no. 13; IFOER Series of publications no. 8; Oesterreichischer Kunst- und Kulturverlag, Vienna, 2009/2010, DVD, 19,00 Euros
The German-Austrian-Swiss doctoral college “Research Laboratory Space” is dedicated to the scientific examination of difficult spatially relevant issues. The college was a guest in Vienna from 14 to 19 June 2009. A “best practice example” for dealing with complex problems is the planning process “Vienna Danube Island”, which was created between 1972 and 1988 thanks to a unique planning organisation. The “Vienna Model” derived from this was the topic of a panel discussion, where some of the decision-makers and actors from politics and planning at the time gathered to explain spatial planning insights. Another Vienna-specific focus was the “Wiener Philosophicum”. Following Karl Popper, Ludwig Wittgenstein and the “Vienna Circle”, fundamental questions of scientific work and cognition in the context of planning sciences were illuminated in an open dialogue.

Vol. 16: Rainer MAYERHOFER, Sepp SNIZEK: REGIO@ – Bypass roads and their importance for urban development. Vienna, 2017, 14,60 Euros
In der Frühzeit des Massenautoverkehrs wurden Entscheidungen für Planung und Bau von Umfahrungsstraßen primär aus verkehrstechnischer, anfangs auch noch aus strategischer Sicht, grundsätzlich aber zum Benefit der Autofahrer getroffen – mit zum Teil damals schon erkennbaren negativen städtebaulichen Folgen. Anfang der 1960-er Jahre wurden in der zugrundeliegenden Dissertation erstmals die Auswirkungen solcher Umfahrungsstraßen auf die Stadtentwicklung disziplinenübergreifend untersucht. Der vorliegende Beitrag beleuchtet und beurteilt nun aus heutiger Sicht die weitere Entwicklung und die seither eingetretenen Veränderungen insbesondere von Rahmenbedingungen und Zielsetzungen.
