The Special Interest Group on Experiential Knowledge (EKSIG) is the first Special Interest Group of the DRS.

EKSIG is concerned with the understanding and role of knowledge in research and professional practice in design in order to clarify fundamental principles and practices of using design practice within research both with regard to research regulations and requirements, and research methodology.

EKSIG runs a biennial conference series, special strands at the DRS and IASDR conferences. It also runs a discussion list, which is used for announcements and debate about the core issues of knowledge and methodology in research and practice in the creative disciplines.

To join EKSIG, please contact Prof Nithikul Nimkurat:
