Call For Papers

CFP: Eighth International Conference on Design Principles and Practices
Location: UBC Robson Square, Vancouver, Canada
16-18 January 2014

"Design as Collective Intelligence"

This conference will address a range of critically important themes relating to design today. It is a place to explore the meaning and purpose of ‘design’, as well as speaking in grounded ways about the task of design and the use of designed artifacts and processes. The conference is a cross-disciplinary forum which brings together researchers, teachers and practitioners to discuss the nature and future of design. The resulting conversations weave between the theoretical and the empirical, research and application, market pragmatics and social idealism.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia addressing Design Principles and Practices through one of the following themes:
* Design Education
* Design in Society
* Designed Objects
* Visual Design
* Design Management and Professional Practice
* Architectonic, Spatial, and Environmental Design

Proposals are reviewed in monthly phases. For current deadlines, registration information, themes, and more, please visit our website:

All conference registrants may also submit their written papers for publication in the refereed Design Principles and Practices: An International Journal.
