Special Interest Groups

The purpose of DRS Special Interest Groups (SIGs) is to build global communities within and across the domains of design research.  SIGs engage with their communities through a broad range of activities, including building platforms of engagement, organising events and creating publications.  SIGs are led by a convening group and manage their own membership.  The DRS encourages SIGs to collaborate together in recognition that contemporary design research blends disciplines and perspectives.

DRS members are invited to join any Special Interest Group to contribute research in their chosen subject area. Members can also start a new SIG by making a proposal to DRS Council.
