DRS Biennial Conference

The Design Research Society organises a large international biennial conference on design research.

This series of DRS conferences began in 2002 with the 'Common Ground' conference in London.

These major international conferences bring the worldwide community together to discuss and present on current practice and theory in Design Research. They offer an opportunity for Design Researchers from around the world to discuss the issues of the day and to network with international colleagues.

DRS also collaborates fully in the IASDR biennial conferences.
