Call: International Association of Societies of Design Research (IASDR) 2015 Congress

Call for Papers

The International Association of Societies of Design Research
IASDR 2015 Congress in Brisbane, Australia
2 – 5 November 2015

During this congress we will explore the interaction of design research with science, technology and the arts. This continual INTERPLAY provides opportunities to explore interaction between cross-disciplinary knowledge and various design research approaches. IASDR 2015 aims to establish trans-disciplinary research platforms across diverse domains to foster new research and education opportunities and stimulate innovation.

The congress provides a global forum for presentation and discussion of the INTERPLAY of design research and applications across all domains of design, science, technology and arts.

IASDR (The International Association of Societies of Design Research) was established on November 1, 2005. The purpose of the Association is to promote research and study into the activity of design in all its many fields of application, through encouraging collaboration on an international level between independent societies of design research. The Association will promote, amongst other activities, the organisation of biennial International Congresses of Design Research, at appropriate venues around the world. Congresses have been organised in Taiwan (2005), Hong Kong (2007), South Korea (2009), The Netherlands (2011) and Japan (2013). The 6th IASDR Congress is in Brisbane (Australia) in 2015.

We invite papers which offer original research and application across all domains of design: architecture, planning, industrial design, engineering design, software, interaction design, fashion or media design. The papers should demonstrate collaborative research and application with science or technology or the arts. Papers should be 3000 – 5000 words excluding abstracts and references and comply with IASDR 2015 guidelines. Submissions must be in English and submitted through the online submission system.
