Registration for DRS2016 is now open
DRS2016 is taking shape! With nearly 500 paper submissions, 100 Conversation and Workshop proposals, and over 100 applications to PhD by Design, DRS2016 is set to be the largest and most varied biennial conference yet.
The conference asks three critical questions for the field:
How can design research help frame and address the societal problems that face us?
How can design research be a creative and active force for rethinking ideas about Design?
How can design research shape our lives in more responsible, meaningful, and open ways?
These questions will be addressed in the many Themes, Sessions, and Special Interest Groups that will make up the conference, with the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Design Research Society providing an historical backdrop to discussion and debate.
We want to start the conversations early though. To enrich the conference experience we aim to put accepted papers and proposals online as soon as possible so that discussions can begin prior to the conference and continue in Brighton.
Situated on the South Coast of the UK, 1 hour from London by train, 30 minutes from Gatwick Airport, and 90 minutes from Heathrow airport, Brighton is an outstanding seaside destination, ideally suited to a relaxed but focused conference experience in a unique historic setting. Brighton offers exceptional entertainment, accommodation, food, and cultural opportunities for an international audience.
