Welcome to the Design Computation Wiki. We are a free semantic framework for design and computation theories, applications and associated technologies. Design Computation is a wiki written collaboratively by expert volunteers. This wiki aims to map the many interconnected domains related to design and computation theories, applications and associated technologies. Any invited collaborator with Internet access can write and make changes to Design Computation articles, except in limited cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption or vandalism.
