Irish Design Research Conference 2015 : Faultlines: Bridging Knowedge Spaces
Call For Papers
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 breath & 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.
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.
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.
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)
Workshop/Demonstration (method, process etc. – 40min)
Poster (visual representation/narrative)
POLICY (research & regulation that informs strategy which drives decision making)
SOCIETY (research or intervention which enhance social development & community)
INDUSTRY (research, practice or thinking with impact in job creation)
