Designing is one of the foundations for change in our society. It is a fundamental precursor to manufacturing, fabrication and construction. Design research aims to develop an understanding of designing and to produce models of designing that can be used to aid designing. The papers in this volume are from the Sixth International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Design (AID'00) held in June 2000, in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA. They represent the state of the art and the cutting edge of research and development in this field, and demonstrate both the depth and breadth of the artificial intelligence paradigm in design. They point the way for the development of advanced computer-based tools to aid designers, and describe advances in both theory and application.
This volume will be of particular interest to researchers, developers, and users of advanced computer systems in design.

Editorial Reviews

A collection of 34 papers from the sixth international conference on the subject, held in Worcester, Massachusetts for which no date is noted. They cover design theory, knowledge modeling, managing knowledge, shapes in design, evolutionary systems, process-based reasoning, learning, exploration and generation, context, and agent- based systems. Considering both theory and application, they discuss such topics as the role of multicriteria problem solving, expressing regulatory design knowledge for critiquing intelligent design assistants, managing knowledge in dispersed design companies facilitating context-driven design support through multiple perspectives, representations from generative systems, evolutionary structured planning, building design support by soft computing, retrieving design cases by generic representations, discovering design methodologies, a framework for generating and exploring concepts, computational situated learning, and deliberate evolution in multi- agent systems.
