School of Architecture's Malo Has Paper Accepted at Technology, Knowledge and Society Conference

School of Architecture Professor Álvaro Malo recently had his paper, "Adaptive Autonomous Performance in a Sensitive Integrative System: AAPSIS Telemedicine Unit" accepted at the 7th International Conference on Technology, Knowledge and Society.

The conference, to be held in Bilbao Spain on March 25-27, 2011, will address a range of critically important themes in the various fields that address the complex and subtle relationships between technology, knowledge and society.

In his current role as Director of the Emerging Material Technologies Graduate Program at the University of Arizona College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, Malo is Co-PI of a proposal to the National Science Foundation program in Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (NSF/EFRI). The project, titled Autonomous Adaptive Performance in a Sensitive and Integrative System (AAPSIS) for a Telemedicine Unit, is focused on the research, design and construction of a prototypical structure for delivery of health care services to the Tohono O'odham Nation Native American populations in Arizona.
