Call For Papers

1st European conference launched and promoted by ADI, the Italian Association for Industrial Design, on Understanding Food Design: From User Experience to People-Centered Design from October 8-10, 2015 in Milan, Italy.
The objectives of this unique 2-day conference are to:
Explore the dimensions, nature, themes and disciplinary positions of Food Design research in Universities (European and International)
Provide all Food System actors (Public and private) with a tool to define the specifics and potentials of Food Design and share strategic objectives for the future.
Provide actors outside of the Design field with a tool to understand the nature and potential of Food Design research to promote a local and global evolution.
The deadline for the call for papers and call for posters has now passed. However, due to a number of requests ADI has agreed to extend the period to allow for more submissions.

Please note that the new deadline date is Friday, September 4th, 2015. THIS IS THE FINAL DEADLINE AND NO FURTHER EXTENSIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

Please note that extension for submissions is for abstracts only, and full paper submissions do not need to be sent at this time.

For further information about the conference and the call for papers and posters, please see below:

The program is an international, peer-reviewed conference led by an esteemed International Advisory Board. The conference proceedings will be published on-line (more information will be provided soon, on the “ publication section” of this website) and a selection of the best papers will be used towards a publication of a book on “Understanding Food Design” (by ADI)

CALL FOR POSTERS
Food concepts beyond the table. Food design is the design segment where food is central, and which focuses primarily on topics related to the preparation of edible products.
It is not merely about designing tableware/wear and eating tools but about shaping new lifestyles and ways of approaching food starting from raw materials and thus new agricultural models, nutritional values and improvement of eating habits, and discussion of cross- cultural influences and food fusions.

This call is for young designers from all over the world. The scientific committee will select projects that provide the broadest possible vision of food design including communication and packaging design, the design of places for consumption, with ideas on eating on the move or at the office. The projects may include items already produced as well as experimental concepts (university research projects or works in progress)

A 120-minute poster session will provide an interactive forum for authors to discuss their work.

Presenters will be assigned locations to put up their posters, which will be organized by topic.
Poster boards and pushpins will be supplied, to attach posters to the boards for display.
Presenters are encouraged to prepare and bring 1-page double-sided handouts to accompany their posters.

Topics for this call for poster include, but are not limited to:
Designing for new food systems, products, and experiences both locally and globally
