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.

Contributions to the workshop are invited in the form of brief position papers or extended abstracts (approximately 1000-1500 words long). Contributions may include examples of how complexity methods and theories have been successfully used, as well as theoretical or philosophical views about the relationship between complexity science and design.
