Intl J of Design Sciences and Technology: open call for papers

The International Journal of Design Sciences and Technology (http://europia.org/IJDST/) is an independent and open platform for disseminating design knowledge. The design of new products drives to solve problems that their solutions are still partial and their tools and methods are rudimentary. Design is applied in extremely various fields and implies numerous agents during the entire process of elaboration and realisation. The Journal is a multidisciplinary forum dealing with all facets and fields of design. It endeavours to provide a framework with which to support debates on different social, economic, political, historical, pedagogical, philosophical, scientific and technological issues surrounding design and their implications for both professional and educational design environments. The focus is on both general as well as specific design issues, at the level of design ideas, experiments and applications.

Authors are invited to submit quality research papers for review. All submitted papers must conform IJDST Instructions (content, style and format) and are subject to blind peer-review. There is no deadline for submitting a paper. Each accepted paper will be published within four months after completion of the final draft (http://europia.org/IJDST/Instruction.pdf).

Also proposals can be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief for special issues covering one or more of the subject areas of the journal or a relevant topic.

NORDES Summer School: Design on the Move (Aug 2012, Oslo)

Dates: 27-29 August 2012
Location: Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO)
Website:  http://www.nordes.org/index.php?Summer+Schools
Deadline for submission:  1 August 2012.

Design researchers increasingly do approach complex environments to find new possibilities and solutions. This challenges the research methods as well as the design methods we use. This year we have put together a programme for NORDES Summer School 2012 that will focus on how the research methodologies in several design based research approaches do relate to the complex issues of mobility and urban contexts.

The theme Design on the Move are to do with the shaping of interdisciplinary inquiry and methods following the medley of theory and practice related to the use of designed artifacts or solutions in mobile situations. This year’s summer school will be dedicated to practical workshops as well as formal research presentations and talk focusing on of how methods develop, in accordance to theories and current approaches to designing for mobility and place-making.

Where is design practice at today?

In a debate dominated by methodological discourse, the role and importance of design practice is often overlooked. This interdisciplinary forum gives you and other members of the international design community the opportunity to invigorate the design discourse by sharing ways that design practice is being carried out, advanced and used to produce effective results.
