20th Intl Conf on Engineering Design: Design for Life (July 2015, Milan Italy)

Dates: 27-30 July 2015
Location: Politecnico di Milano, Italy
Website: http://www.iced15.org
Deadline for submissions: UPDATED 15 December 2014

We are pleased to invite you to prepare and submit papers to the 20th International Conference on Engineering Design, ICED 15!

The ICED15 conference will be held in Milan, at the same time as EXPO 2015, making this a truly unique occasion for participants to attend both events. The EXPO 2015 theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” inspired the ICED 15 motto to be “Design for Life”, which points to the role and responsibility that designers have in improving human existence.

“Design for a healthy life”, “Design for a sustainable life” and “Design for a contented life” are three fields in which design can have a particularly strong impact and have therefore been selected as themes for the ICED 15 conference.

The conference programme will include applied, theoretical and result-oriented papers from both academia and industry. Substantial and original papers based on rigorous analysis and argumentation will be considered for inclusion. We will be especially pleased to receive papers aimed at stimulating discussion, for which specific sessions will be set up.

All submissions are expected as full papers, not exceeding 10 pages, following the guidelines and templates provided on the ICED 15 website (http://iced2015.org/authors/).
