The conference theme – DESIGN REVOLUTIONS – will explore how design drives and responds to revolutionary thinking through questioning the norm, probing the now and embracing the new. There are 10 tracks to explore the conference theme: Change, Technology, Thinking, Making, People, Living, Value, Learning, Voices and Open. Full track details are provided below.

There are four ways to participate in the conference:

For the first time IASDR will be held in the UK and will foster new thinking towards a compelling, meaningful and radical dialogue regarding the role that design plays in addressing societal and organisational issues. The biannual conference enables academics, practitioners and students join together to explore contemporary agendas, emerging directions and future challenges that are at the forefront of design research. IASDR 2019 will provide opportunities for the presentation and publication of a collection of high-quality peer reviewed research papers alongside the space to discuss and debate the evolution and revolution of design.
