conference 2014 organisation

Acknowledgments:

A conference of this scale requires the support of a great many people and there are therefore many people to thank. Our thanks go to: the keynote speakers who travelled great distances and took great care to engage with the conference and tailor their talks to our themes, questions and our curiosity; the 149 conference participants who took risks, explored, experimented and provided the matter and ideas for rich debate and inspiration; the administrative and technical staff of the School of Architecture, University of Sheffield, for all of their behind-the-scenes essential support – especially Janet Richardson for financial administration, Martin Bradshaw for organising and supporting technical equipment and James Bower for tireless printing and binding; the conference committee who each contributed an essential ingredient which shaped the conference in some way; those who kindly agreed to chair the various sessions; James Brown for his gallant volunteering, way beyond the call of duty, in the final stages of preparation; The University of Sheffield for agreeing to host the conference and Sheffield Hallam University for hosting one of the keynote talks; conference sponsors/supporters Ashgate, EDDICT, RIBA Publishing, Vectorworks, TRADA and Wiley as well as the aae itself; the wider group of Sheffield School of Architecture staff and aae members who reviewed papers and gave their moral support; and finally the student volunteers who made a whole range of creative, organisational and technical contributions and who provided the glue that held the whole thing together.
