The inaugural Irish Design Research Conference is an exciting new event on the design landscape, supported by ID2015 Year of Irish Design. In recognition of the breadth & depth across the design disciplinary bandwidth in both research & practice, FAULTLINES-Bridging Knowledge Spaces has been adopted as the 2015 conference theme.

Through interaction and collaboration across disciplines, gaps in knowledge and practice will offer new opportunity, to inform future theory & practice for mutual benefit.

Aim:

The Irish Design Research Conference seeks to draw stakeholders from across the design related community together into a common dialogue.

The aim is to offer a forum to disseminate the most current knowledge, share ongoing practice-led insight, and discuss emergent issues relevant to those working in the field of design, design thinking & practice.

Purpose:

This biennial event seeks to bring participants from the design community together, and it is envisioned that new insight & opportunity for collaboration will emerge.

This will identify further research, understanding & engagement, which build on current thinking, to inform development in theory, design thinking & practice.

Format:
The conference structure will aim to facilitate flexible participation from academia, design industry & agency, from across the design disciplinary bandwidth:

Oral/Visual Panel Presentation (research, practice, case study etc. – 15mins)
