CFP: IASDR Congress 2023

The International Association of Societies of Design Research (IASDR) is hosting its tenth Biennial Congress in Milan from 9th to 13th October 2023. IASDR intends for this congress to be an opportunity to provide a platform for like-minded individuals to explore the pluralistic nature of design research by examining current agendas and emerging/future directions.

Interested parties are invited to submit a 4000-6000 word manuscript unpacking such questions as:

  • What is the role of design in a world impacted by the pandemic?
  • How is design renewing and transforming itself?

The above questions are further explored through the lens of education and along such questions as:

  • What inspires change in design education?
  • What change does design education itself inspire?
  • What is missing in design education today?
  • What and where are the problems?

The education thematic track aims to contribute to the discourse on design pedagogy by fostering clarity and identity for design education goals, attention to robustly grounded but dynamic educational planning, and openness to plurality and differentiation.
