Nexus 2020 and Coronavirus

With regard to the global outbreak of Coronavirus, we are not making any changes in our plans for the international conference "Nexus 2020: Relationships Between Architecture and Mathematics", scheduled to take place 20-23 July 2020, but we are following the situation closely and will make an announcement about our intentions before the 15 May deadline set for early registration
Participants should wait to make travel plans and book hotels until we can be definite, and look for cancellation possibilities while booking, in order to avoid losing money if tickets cannot be refunded.  

To those who submitted abstracts for Nexus 2020 in Kaiserslautern:

Because we extended the deadline for submissions from 30 November 2019 to 21 December, we had to give the Scientific Committee more time to complete their reviews. 

We will notify you with the result of reviews on 1 March 2020, so please be patient while we complete our work.

At the request of the Guest Editors, the deadline for submissions for "Patterns and Spatial Organisation" has been extended. The new deadline is:
Friday 15 May 2020.
This is a firm deadline and there will be no further extension.

The Nexus Network Journal is pleased to announce a Call for Papers

Patterns and Spatial Organisation: Culture, History and Future Perspectives

Guest Editors: Yannis Zavoleas (University of New South Wales) & Mark Taylor (Swinburne University of Technology)

At the Nexus Network Journal, co-published by Kim Williams Books and Birkhäuser, we care about making sure that the research published in our journal is as widely circulated as possible. That is why we have a policy of restricting material to subscribers only for a short time, and releasing earlier articles to all interested readers. I am pleased to say that as of now, all material from vols. 1 to 13 is now open access.

Please visit the NNJ on the Springer platform at: 

and browse these 13 volumes to find the articles that most interest you. You can search by keywords or authors, or visit the Tables of Contents. You can also sign up for the "Table of Contents Alert" so that you'll receive an email from Springer each  time a new issue of the NNJ appears. Happy reading!
