DeSForM2015: Aesthetics of Interaction | Dynamic, Multisensory, Wise (Oct 2015, Milan Italy)

Dates: 13-17 October 2015
Location: Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy
Website: http://www.desform2015.polimi.it
Deadline for submissions: 15 January 2015

The works traditionally presented at DeSForM investigate the evolving nature of design artifacts and how new forms or objects’ aesthetics convey meaning. We aim to discuss the potential, the limits, and the constraints of designing intriguing experiences with technology-affected artifacts (be they tangible, virtual or intangible). We will also explore the balance of aesthetics, ethics, meaning, and emotion in design.

*************************************************************************

The DESIGN-ED Coalition, in partnership with Design Research Society and Cumulus, is excited to announce the Call for Paper Abstracts and Workshop/Symposium proposals for the 3rd International Conference for Design Education Researchers: Learn X Design. http://learnxdesign2015.com/

Deadline for substitution of abstracts and workshop/symposium proposals is on 22 October 2014 via this link https://www.conftool.pro/learnxdesign2015/

Submission information (PDF) is on http://learnxdesign2015.com/LearnxDesign2015_callforpapers.pdf

Learn x Design is a conference for the wide range of topics from theoretical research to practical application. On a career level, the study of design is to create a well-crafted, aesthetic fit of form to function, materials, and tools. Each designed item contains a narrative about the culture from which it evolved, about the person who produced it, and the values and practices of both. Research develops theories and principles about learning, tests and validates them for implementation in classroom, policy and practice.

This international conference is a springboard for sharing ideas and concepts about contemporary design education research and the teaching of design. Contributors are invited to submit research that deals with different facets of approaches to design education research, pedagogy and teaching. All papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed. This conference is open to research and teaching methodology in any aspect and discipline of design education.

We are pleased to announce a partnership with these Journals:

  • Design and Technology Education
  • TRACEY
  • FORMakademisk
  • Curriculum and Instruction
  • Journal of Education through the Arts
  • Art, Design and Communication in Higher Education

The journals will publish special issues with articles selected from papers and keynote lectures presented at the Conference that relate to their theme track as listed below:

  • Design Thinking and Engineering
  • Local and Global Connections to Design Education
  • Design Inspired by Nature
  • Systems Thinking
  • DIME: Design, Innovation, Media, Economics
  • Academic and Vocational Curriculum Development
  • Ecological Urbanism
  • Visual Literacies and Design Thinking
  • Visualization in Design Education
  • Design Thinking, Management and Design Education
  • Design Education to Improve Life and the World
  • Design as an Integrative Tool for Education

More information about the conference and registration will be available in the coming months at www.learnxdesign2015.com

We look forward to receiving and reviewing your submissions!

AIGA/DEC Conference: Spaces of Learning (April 2015, Toronto Canada)

Dates: 16-18 April 2015

SOL

This conference seeks to activate three conversational platforms embedded in the conference title.

1) Design Education as Interface
2) Design Education as Diverse Cultural and Social Space
3) Design Education as Politics.

The conference will explore the idea that graphic design education is rapidly evolving: the social spaces we work in, and the practices of teaching and learning we engage with, are themselves mediated by larger contexts of social, cultural, political and technological change. Mindful of these changing contexts our conference will seek to pose questions about the assumptions we make about the relationship between making design, thinking about design, asking questions about design and theorizing design in as open and potentially interdisciplinary a framework as possible.

We will also address how, as a specific discipline of making, we are uniquely placed to explore the limits of the emerging conversation about visual communication and visual culture in contemporary spaces of learning.

Unmaking Waste:  Transforming Production and Consumption in Time and Place (May 2015, Adelaide Australia)

Dates: 21-24 May 2015
Location: Zero Waste SA Research Centre for Sustainable Design and Behaviour, University of South Australia, Adelaide
Website: www.unmakingwaste2015.org
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 17 October 2014

Waste is created when we no longer value something we create, possess or use. Barriers to prematurely discarding goods and resources have steadily fallen in recent years. Easy credit, low prices, instant online access, and a 24 hour promotional media all reinforce an expanding consumerism.

While much effort has gone into researching and implementing successful technical strategies for reducing waste and emissions, accelerating rates of consumption are undermining these efforts. It is clear that we need new systems-based approaches to reduce this excess consumption, including the excesses of our ‘waste-making’, to generate a more sustainable circular economy.

This conference invites participants to explore new approaches to reduce the speed, volume and impacts of ‘waste-ready’ global consumerism.
