3rd Intl Conf on Design Creativity (Jan 2015, Bangalore India)

Dates: 12-14 January 2015
Location: Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India
Website: http://www.cpdm.iisc.ernet.in/icdc2014
Deadline for submissions: UPDATED 14 July 2014

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, and practical processes to incorporate the human and social dimensions.

3rd ICDC is an official conference of the Design Society promoted by its Special Interest Group (SIG) on Design Creativity. The SIG was established in 2007; since then, its ambit has expanded to include engineering design, industrial design, artificial intelligence, linguistics, and cognitive science.

The topics and themes of the conference include – but are not limited to:

Collaborative creative design
Cognition in creative design
Creative design processes and methods
Creative design styles and cultures
Design creativity support tools
Formal education in creative design
Global creativity and innovation
Measuring creativity and its impact
Social dimensions of creative design
