Dates: 18-20 September 2012
Deadline for submission: UPDATED: 23 March 2012

NOTE: As of 13 February, the website is back up.  It was down due to a fire at the host organization. 

The 2nd International Conference on Design Creativity (ICDC 2012) will take place on 18.-20.09.2012 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Design Creativity is an important and interesting topic of study in design. Since it involves the profound and essential nature of design, design creativity is expected to be a key in not only addressing the social problems that we are facing, but also producing an innate appreciation for beauty and happiness in our minds. In order to elucidate the nature of design creativity, the following issues are being studied:

  • Cognitive processes underlying design creativity
  • Computational models of design creativity
  • Practical processes to incorporate the human and social dimensions

After the success of the first ever International Conference on Design Creativity in 2010 in Kobe, Japan, the 2012 event will take place in Scotland in close cooperation with the University of Strathclyde.

Full paper submission: 09 March 2012
