Save the date - Sunday, May 22 to Wednesday, May 25, 2011
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design and Swinburne
University of Technology Faculty of Design announce a conference on
the challenges and opportunities of doctoral education
It is nearly a decade since the last comprehensive global conference
on doctoral education in design in La Clusaz, France, and it's time to
revisit this issue for a conversation on this vital theme in design
We'll start the dialog with a dinner on Sunday for three full days of
intense discussion, studios, and workshops with limited community of
120 participants. Papers will be selected from extended abstracts
with references. We will enter into a rich dialog in a single track
plenary sessions. Tuesday's plenary will be followed by a day of
design studios in which participants address key problems and
challenges, designing solutions and outcomes for the future.
Papers will be delivered to participants in a proceedings document two
weeks before the conference to give everyone time to prepare. The real
conference publication will come afterward. Authors will be asked for
a commitment to deliver a book chapter within 90 days of their return
home from the conference. This book will allow people to expand and
improve their papers with new insights and ideas based on the
Studios will create process documents and solutions for publication in
working paper format.
The book and the working papers will stimulate new thinking to help
our colleagues around the world to set new standards for our field.
