World Design Summit 2017 : CALL FOR PROPOSALS
What are the innovative design ideas and actions that could bring about better futures? How can design in all its facets respond to issues as a transformational agent that supports cultural, political, economic, environmental and everyday societal needs?
These are the key and essential questions that will drive discussions at the World Design Summit.
The Scientific and Professional Committee invites proposals for presentations and sessions inspired by the Summit’s six major themes. (Summit themes and details here)
The Call for Proposals is open to scholars, practitioners and concerned parties from all spectrums of the design disciplines, including: architecture, graphic design, industrial design, interior design, landscape architecture, urban planning and interstitial or hybrid practices.
We are looking for presentations and papers that provoke paradigm shifts, and that propose how we might rethink challenging world issues through design processes and their applications. We encourage the coming together of the design disciplines to explore issues of importance to all disciplines, from both specific and interdisciplinary perspectives.
ONLINE SUBMISSION DEADLINE : October 3rd 2016
