DESIGNA 2014: Intl Conf on Design Research (Nov 2014, Portugal)

Dates: 20-21 November 2014
Location: University of Beira Interior, Covilhã, Portugal
Website: http://www.designa.ubi.pt/en/2014
Deadline for submissions: 31 May 2014

DESIRE is the chosen theme to DESIGNA’s 4th edition, returning to the University of Beira Interior November 20th and 21st, 2014.

 The call for papers starts today and will be open until May 31st. We welcome the submission of original communication proposals with a seminal propensity that are able to explore the connection between Design and Desire within one of the six thematic frames that structure the conference: Communication, Multimedia, Product, Fashion, Theory and Education.

In this first moment, we invite researchers and designers to submit an abstract with their intended communication proposal. After a double blind review process and the authors’ acceptance notification, we will ask for the submission of the full paper, regarding the publication of the proceedings. The submission procedures can be found in the conference’s website – www.designa.ubi.pt/en/2014 -, a platform available both in portuguese and in english, where you can check all the necessary information about the event and its calendar.

DESIGNA has been contributing, since 2011, to consolidate the research on Design both academically and socially, nationally and internationally. Therefore, we ask everyone who’s interested to spread the word about the conference’s call for papers and to join us at Covilhã next November.
