DCC10 Workshop: Assessing the Impact of Complexity Science in Design (July 2010, Stuttgart)

Date: 10 July 2010
Website: http://design.open.ac.uk/ecidII/complexity&design.htm

Designers today increasingly turn to concepts and tools coming from complexity science in order to understand, manage and exploit complexity in their everyday practice. Complexity science has been used in design in various ways, as a theory of design; as a method for research (e.g. in order to analyze or model design artefacts, processes and activities); and also as a method for generating design solutions. The aim of the workshop is to discuss and assess the impact of complexity science in design research, design cognition and design practice.

DCC10 Workshop: Design Communication (July 2010, Stuttgart)

Date: 10 July 2010, 9-12.30pm
Submission open until May 14th, 2010
Short position papers of max. 4 pages

This workshop provides an opportunity to discuss the challenges in understanding and supporting communication in design, while at the same time reflecting on the nature of research into design communication. We want to identify the intellectual traditions that have informed communication research to date and those that could offer a real potential in identifying how existing and future research can complement and built on each other.

5th Intl Conf on Design Principles and Practices (Feb 2011, Rome)

Website: www.Design-Conference.com
Next deadline for submission: 15 April 2010. There will be subsequent deadlines.

Next year’s conference will be held in Rome, Italy. The Design Conference is a place to explore the meaning and purpose of ‘design’, as well as speaking in grounded ways about the task of design and the use of designed artifacts and processes. The conference is a cross-disciplinary forum that brings together researchers, teachers and practitioners to discuss the nature and future of design. In professional and disciplinary terms, the conference traverses a broad sweep to construct a dialogue which encompasses the perspectives and practices of: anthropology, architecture, art, artificial intelligence, business, cognitive science, communication studies, computer science, cultural studies, design studies, education, e-learning, engineering, ergonomics, fashion, graphic design, history, information systems, industrial design, industrial engineering, instructional design, interior design, interaction design, interface design, journalism, landscape architecture, law, linguistics and semiotics, management, media and entertainment, psychology, sociology, software engineering and telecommunications.

2nd Intl Forum of Design as a Process (Oct 2010, Portugal)

Deadline for abstracts: 30 April 2010.
Website: http://www.latin-design-process.net/.

One of the dominant characteristics of design in Latin countries is the subtle difference and the frequent superimposition between knowledge and practices of design, fine arts and craft. For example, there are recurrent occasions in which artists are called by companies to substitute designers and designers are involved by craftsmen to update and revitalize their practices.

The 2nd International Forum of the Latin Network will bring the process dimension of this integration to the fore. In one hand, we take for granted the knowledge typical of each area of interest, but, on the other hand, we would like to address our shared idea to the scientific and operative fields in which these three activities overlap, growing mutually and taking possession of one another’s consolidated practices.
