DRS2020 Extended Deadlines: 24 February 2020
The Design Research Society biennial conference DRS2020 will take place 11-14 August 2020. The conference will be hosted by Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia. As with previous DRS conferences, DRS2020 will be a major global forum to present and discuss design research.
Conference organisers have issued an announcement:
"The bushfires in Australia and the coronavirus outbreak in China have recently received ample media coverage and captured global attention. These natural disaster and global health events have raised our concerns once again about what we can do to assist in preventing and combating them. In light of this, DRS2020 would like to encourage design researchers to consider submitting proposals to convene Conversations or Workshops at DRS2020 that address, among other topics, the challenges of and solutions for climate change as well as global health and safety. To provide our design research community with more time to prepare their proposals, DRS2020 is now extending the submission deadline to Monday, 24 February 2020. For details on how to submit your proposal, please visit http://drs2020.org/participation/
At the same time, the deadline for submitting an expression of interest to participate in activities of the DRS2020 Postgraduate Research Day (PG Day) has also been extended to Monday, 24 February 2020."
