Intl Journal of Design Sciences & Technology

Deadline: no deadline / ASAP
Website: http://europia.org/IJDST/ 

The International Journal of Design Sciences and Technology (http://europia.org/IJDST/) is an independent and open platform for disseminating design knowledge. The design of new products drives to solve problems that their solutions are still partial and their tools and methods are rudimentary. Design is applied in extremely various fields and implies numerous agents during the entire process of elaboration and realisation. The International Journal of Design Sciences and Technology is a multidisciplinary forum dealing with all facets and fields of design. It endeavours to provide a framework with which to support debates on different social, economic, political, historical, pedagogical, philosophical, scientific and technological issues surrounding design and their implications for both professional and educational design environments. The focus is on both general as well as specific design issues, at the level of design ideas, experiments and applications.

Authors are invited to submit quality research papers for review. All submitted papers must conform IJDST Instructions (content, style and format) and are subject to blind peer-review. There is no deadline for submitting a paper. Each accepted paper will be published within four months after completion of the final draft. http://europia.org/IJDST/Instruction.pdf

Also proposals can be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief for special issues (4 papers of 7500-15000 words) covering one of the subject areas of the journal.

Visible Language: Special Issue on Design for Health and Medicine (Nov 2014)

Contact: Jorge Frascara <frascara@ualberta.ca>
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 November 2014.

The fields of medicine, pharmacy, public health and other related areas, are becoming more conscious of the contribution design can make, and there is a growing need for designers to acquire the necessary information and skills required in this area. We to increase  our collective knowledge of the work done in the intersection between design and health.

Considering this situation, Visible Language is preparing a special issue on design and health and has asked me to act as guest editor. This issue is planned to be the first of 2015.

If you are interested in having a case study considered for the special issue of Visible Language, please send a one-page abstract to Jorge Frascara <frascara@ualberta.ca> by November 15, 2014.

The abstract should include topic description, research question, method description and conclusion. The editorial advisors will review the abstracts and invite authors to submit full papers. These will be due by January 15, 2015, and will be peer-reviewed as all articles published in Visible Language

CAADRIA 2015: Emerging Experiences in the Past, Present, and Future of Digital Architecture (May 2015, South Korea)

Dates: 20-23 May 2015
Location: Kyungpook National University (KNU), Daegu, Republic of Korea
Website: http://caadria2015.org 
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 26 September 2014

The adoption of computational processes in architecture has transformed the way we think, design and make, thereby enhancing our understanding, skills and performance in architectural design and research. Since 1996, CAADRIA has contributed to the exchange of information relating to studies and technologies in architecture and design by promoting dialogue, collaboration, and the dissemination of information among leading researchers and practitioners in the field of digital architecture. CAADRIA 2015 celebrates the twenty-year history of CAADRIA with the theme, “Emerging Experiences in the Past, Present, and Future of Digital Architecture”.

The concept of emerging experience originated from the field of Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), and means ‘novel computer interaction and experience’. The theme for CAADRIA 2015 encompasses the total complement of effective innovation and experiences of digital technologies and design research over the twenty years of CAADRIA’s existence. By reflecting on the past, speculating about the present, and exploring the future of digital architecture in CAADRIA, we intend to inspire and to share innovative ideas, emphasizing a cross-disciplinary context in technologies in architecture to promote research in CAAD which enhances creativity.
