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)

Target Delegate Participants:

Calls are invited from:

design academics
design researchers
design professionals
associated design industry partners
agencies engaged in supporting & promoting design

Submission :

Participation at the Inaugural Irish Design Research Conference is simple. The call requires the submission of a short ‘300 word Abstract’ on the downloadable Conference ‘Abstract Submission Form’ and possible attachment of images or associated materials if appropriate.

Review Process:

Each submission will be evaluated by a Peer Review Panel and feedback provided before 17th April 2015 to advise suitability and/or engagement.


All accepted submitted abstracts for conference will be published in a ‘Book of Abstracts’ available the week prior to the conference.

Abstracts will be also be considered for full paper submission to ITERATIONS®, Ireland’s first Design Research Practice Review, which will be launched at the Conference.
