Dates: 5-7 February 2013
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 28 October 2012
The 2nd International Smart Design conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss issues, identify challenges and directions, and share their R&D findings and experiences in the areas of design, materials and technology. The University of Western Sydney, in collaboration with Nottingham Trent University (UK), is proud to be hosting this conference in 2013.
Conference Scope and Theme
New materials and advanced technologies are critical to the economy of the twenty-first century. Good product designs merge materials, technology and hardware into a unified user experience in which technology recedes into the background. By focusing on functional gain, critical awareness and emotive connection, even multifaceted and complex technology can become an integral part of daily life. Researchers, designers and developers must understand how to appropriate the right technical and human knowledge to drive their innovations.
