DESIGN 2020 Conference
May 18 - May 21
Discussion and further development of all aspects of design knowledge from cognition and philosophy, to methods and tools, from research theory to practice.
The DESIGN Conference programme offers broad exchange possibilities to researchers and practitioners, strategic decision makers, managers, design and engineering professionals, national or regional agencies or governmental bodies.
The goal of DESIGN Conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners who have worked on or thought about engineering and industrial design from a variety of perspectives, disciplines, and fields: engineering, aesthetics, ergonomics, psychology, sociology and the like.
We invite high-quality submissions for DESIGN 2020 covering substantial, original and previously unpublished research. Improvements in the engineering design process have been supported by theories and methods developed by research groups around the world. There is a constant need to harmonise the findings, and to ensure that these findings are built upon and developed so that they can be transferred into engineering practice.
DESIGN 2020 papers key questions
How this influences engineering design methodologies and tools in practice? How to improve design projects and processes? How to improve the development of products and services? Which competencies, information and communication technologies are needed? What is the impact on the everyday design work? What social and legal issues should be considered? What are the new advances in design theory and research?
Applied, theoretical and results oriented papers from both academia and industry, based on thorough analysis or argumentation, will all be considered for the conference programme. The submitted papers should fit into one of the proposed conference topics. It is expected that these specific topics are extensive and non exhaustive. A list of examples is added for illustrating the core topics. It is required explicitly from all contributors to show how they are contributing to the overall research within these areas.
Organization of a DESIGN Conference series is a result of the continued policy and continuous learning process, connecting researchers and practitioners attempting to understand better the problems they are trying to address.
The objectives of the DESIGN Conferences tend to be integrative across the various disciplines, to reach the current state-of-the-art, to cover the multidisciplinary aspects of design and to assure high-level review policy.
All activities in the organization of DESIGN conference through the years have been oriented to fulfill those goals motivating the researchers and practitioners to participate in these truly international high-quality events. Until 2000, the conferences were supported by WDK (Workshop Design-Konstruktion) while the recent events have continued the tradition under the sign of the Design Society, providing a forum for cooperative interactions among participants.
DESIGN 2014 Conference has attracted more than 300 participants from more than 30 countries.
The forthcoming DESIGN 2016 Conference is founded on the continuous development of organization and evaluation procedure that resulted in a capacity to deliver procedures and conditions of communicative competence. The Organizational Board invites you to the 14th International DESIGN Conference – DESIGN 2016 to continue the tradition of the previous meetings by presenting your view on the “EXCELLENCE IN DESIGN”.
