Design-Tech Conference 2019

June 18, 2019 - June 19, 2019

International Conference on Design and Technology, June 18-19, 2019 at Technion, Haifa, Israel.

The Design-Tech 2019 conference is a new and unique platform for researchers and practitioners in the field of design initiated to showcase their work. It is held for the first time at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology.

While design has always been an integral part of the technological development process, in recent years it has been gaining a more significant role. Today, a technological process that is not based on design fundamentals is almost unheard of.

The design aspects of a technological R&D process raise unique questions and concerns which are critical to the success and viability of the technology itself. Design is no longer just a “nice to have,” beauty and taste issue. Rather, it is a strategic resource for successful technology companies; it is now seen as one of the key elements required for differentiation and for technology expansion and adoption. Design enhances technology and assists in making it accessible.

Yet, since design has become a primary lens through which we observe and experience our surroundings, it has also become responsible for the negative outcomes of technology. The Design-Tech conference wishes to create a central platform for discussing such topics under the title of the role of design and technology in multi-faceted crisis.

The conference will enable attendees to visit one of the most vibrant start-up eco-systems in the world.

The Design-Tech initiative at the Technion was established in 2018 by Prof. Ezri Tarazi. Design-Tech purpose is to foster design awareness and ‘design thinking’ among Science and Engineering students. The initiative includes design courses, events, conferences, design-hackathons, competitions, exhibitions, an online archive and e-learning courses.

Design-Tech 2019 invites designers, researchers, educators and students to be part of the conference by actively participating in the various conference tracks. Design-Tech welcomes the submission of both academic research papers and practice-based case studies. Design-Tech 2019 is an international conference and all submissions will be reviewed by an international panel of experts.
