It gives me a great pleasure to invite you to the 8 th IPD Workshop that will be held from September 15th to 17th, 2010, in Magdeburg. The topics of the 8th Workshop are

  • Role and importance of Industrial Design and the shape of a product as “product language”
  • Influence and impact of work science
  • Sustainability, a new (?) challenge for IPD
  • Collaborative session: Introducing IPD MSc course of studies

Venue: This time, we moved back to Magdeburg. The new venue is the Hotel „Elbresidenz”, at the shores of the Elbe River, within the beautiful Rotehorn Park, in the middle of Magdeburg (

As in previous workshops, we keep on focussing mainly on presentations as well as content-related discussions. We encourage especially young scholars to present their research results. If you are interested to present or to chair a discussion on a selected topic, please send me your proposals until March 29th.
