Chiba & Design

Now in its seventh year, the Design Conference will be hosted at Chiba University in Chiba (Greater Tokyo), Japan. Since the foundation of the department in 1922 as the Tokyo Higher School of Arts and Technology, the Design Department at Chiba University has led Japan in design research and education – encouraging exchanges in research across disciplines and developing designers, researchers, and design directors who can respond to present and future demands of a designed world.

Call for Submissions – Design Principles and Practices Family of Journals

The Design Principles and Practices knowledge community publishes into a family of journals. Design Principles and Practices: An International Journal explores the meaning and purpose of ‘design’, as well as speaking in grounded ways about the task of design and the use of designed artifacts. The resulting articles weave between the theoretical and the empirical, research and application, market pragmatics and social idealism.

Refereeing of submitted papers will commence shortly so start the submission process by submitting your proposal.
