summary These instructions are intended to guide contributors to the Second International Conference of the Arab Society of Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2007) when preparing papers. The abstract is in 10 pt Times with 11 pt leading. In the last years we have witnessed an enormous interest in the idea of the virtual, triggered by the increasing availability of advanced information technology. The capacity of this technology to model and simulate the behavior and the perception of environments have raised enormous expectations about the possibilities of producing synthetic, virtual environments that will eventually replace reality in the forms we know it. But if this virtual trend is a very recent phenomenon associated to the development of information technology, the idea of the virtual is not new. Virtual reality takes place, also, in architecture. Virtual architecture is not a design problem to which architecture and architects can offer any answer that they please. It is the condition, under which we have come to live in the 21st century through the physical and sensual encounter with the computer. It is only as a violence of this nature that virtual architecture can become a virtual thing and have the power to change the architectural thought of the era. Virtual reality could be used in different fields but essentially, the goal of this piece of work is the development of a generic set of tools that provide users with the means to recall represent and document the heritage in a new way, in order to preserve and make it accessible to as many people as possible.
