Events

The Design Research Society, in collaboration with host universities, organises the DRS biennial international conference bringing the word-wide Design Research community together to discuss and present on practice and theory of current interest. This new series of DRS conferences began in 2002 with the 'Common Ground' conference in London. You can find out about the past biennial conferences here.

The DRS organises a variety of symposia and provides support and sponsorship for design research events for affiliated organisation. The Design Research Society sponsors and is affiliated with a wide range of design research events. These include conferences and events of the International Association of Design Research Societies (IASDR). DRS also collaborates fully in the IASDR biennial conferences.

DRS Special Interest Groups hold conferences, symposia and meetings to examine issue of the day in specific areas of interest.

If your institution would like to host the DRS Biennial Conference in the future, get in touch with the DRS Council via our Administration office (admin@designresearchsociety.org).

Once a year, usually in October, the DRS holds a symposium to accompany its Annual General Meeting.
