We are proud to announce that the International Association of Societies
of Design Research (IASDR) 2019 Conference will be hosted by Manchester
School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK on 02-05 September
2019. 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.

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.

Conference website: www.iasdr2019.org


IASDR 2019 is organised under 10 parallel tracks that reflect the
breadth and opportunities of the norm, the now and the new of design

- Change  revolution and evolution of design as it responds to the
context in which it operates

creativity within the current education system

- Living  design shaping the way we live through our consumption of
products, the services we use and the cities we inhabit impacting the
environment, health and wellbeing of all

- Making  harnessing of the creative possibilities of materials and
processes by design and making,

- People  social and cultural connection with design for, and with,
people to meet the needs of citizens today and in the future

- Technology  from digital automation to machine learning and artificial
intelligence to the Internet of Things, the engagement of design in an
increasingly complex technology landscape

- Value  management of design to maximise the economic value and
communicate the relationship between design and business effectively

- Voices  diversity in design voices to break the boundary of power and
hierarchal socio-political systems

- Open  other critical debate in design research with out of the box
thinking, challenging conventions and probe the norm

Rules without Words:
Inquiries into Non-linguistic Normativities

Special Issue

Deadline for paper submission: March 13th , 2019
The issue will be published by December 2019

Call for Papers

In the common thinking, rules are often considered linguistic entities.
However, forms of normativity not necessarily connected with verbal or
written language emerge in the social reality. A number of normative
phenomena (e.g. folk law, customs, pictorial law, graphic rules, hostile
architecture, animal societies) widely described in the literature do
not seem to involve the use of words. Indeed, apparently, in these
cases, rules have non-lexical nature. Phenomenology and Mind invites
submissions for a special issue dedicated to Rules without Words:
Inquiries into Non-linguistic Normativities. This special issue aims to
bring together researchers from all around the world who focus on
non-linguistic rules from different philosophical perspectives: social
philosophy, philosophy of law and jurisprudence, epistemology, political
philosophy, philosophy of language, media studies, philosophy of
architecture, philosophy of design, performance studies, ethology,
cognitive science and social psychology, gender studies.

The main purpose of this special issue is to provide a critical overview
of some of the most interesting topics and methodologies from the
current philosophical debate, focusing on (but not limited to) the
following issues:

1. Ontology of non-linguistic rules

- What are the distinctive ontological features of non-linguistic rules?
- What are the relations between non-linguistic rules and social
- Are non-linguistic rules essentially connected to human societies or
do they regulate
the social life of some non-human members of the animal kingdom?

2. Epistemology of non-linguistic rules

- What are the distinctive epistemic features of non-linguistic rules?
- What are the cognitive and psychological aspects of non-linguistic
- How is it possible to understand a non-linguistic rule?
- Is it possible to have a normative experience independently from

3. Deontology of non-linguistic rules

- Do non-linguistic rules contribute to the development or the
maintenance of traditional and new social inequalities?
- What are the seminal cases of non-linguistic rules in disseminating or
imposing political and social values and habits?
- How can non-linguistic rules promote the social good?
- How do architecture and design shape social reality through the
creation of tacit normative social constraints?

Phenomenology and Mind is the Journal of the Faculty of Philosophy of
San Raffaele University (Milan). It was founded in 2011 and since then
has hosted works of outstanding philosophers such as Lynne Baker, Thomas
Fuchs, Anna Elisabetta Galeotti, Shaun Gallagher, Margaret Gilbert,
Jrgen Habermas, Edward Harcourt, Robin Jeshion, Dieter Lohmar, Michael
Pauen, John Searle, Nadia Urbinati, and many others. The journal is
anonymously peer-reviewed and open-access. We are committed to
publishing papers of high academic quality and making them accessible to
a wide audience. Submissions from underrepresented groups in philosophy
are particularly encouraged.

14th annual Engineering, Social Justice, and Peace conference
Removing Borders Among Disciplines

The theme for the 14th annual Engineering, Social Justice, and Peace
conference is Removing Borders Among Disciplines. Engineering as a
profession and academic field has existed largely in isolation from
other disciplines. We invite authors to explore what author Gloria
Anzalda defined as the nepantla  the liminal space, the in-between, and
the borderlands from which novel insight and inspiration emerges. In our
context, this means exploring the spaces and borders that have
historically isolated engineering from outside socio-political critiques
or academic traditions. Contributions from a broad range of topics and
perspectives are welcome, especially those which address the
intersections of the engineering discipline with social justice,
feminism, philosophy, epistemology, peace studies, critical theory, and
ethics. Our goal is to foster an educational setting where unique
insight and revolutionary change can emerge from our community.

ESJP 14, as with other conferences, will be an interdisciplinary
academic gathering. We welcome participants from a broad range of
backgrounds who would wish to address the conference theme
undergraduate or graduate students, faculty, staff, industry
practitioners, educators, and activists inside or outside the academy.
We are excited to hold space with all who share a commitment to justice
and equity in engineering.We are excited to hold space with all who
share a commitment to justice and equity in engineering. ESJPs list of
core commitments can be found

Formats can include:

- Individual paper presentations (10 to 15-minute talk + discussion,
30-minute block)
- Panel discussions (up to 5 individuals, 60-minute block
- Interactive workshops (60-minute block)
- Art, poetry, interactive sessions, zine making, short film, or other
creative formats not listed  creative freedom is encouraged!

Proposals should include a title, names of presenters or contributors,
proposed format, affiliation, and an abstract of 300 words or less.
Deadline for submission is April 30, 2019. Please submit your proposal
using this form. https://goo.gl/forms/zGYoRGILtUOuwT2G3

This conference and its theme coincides with the recent CFP from the
International Journal of Engineering, Social Justice and Peace. We
encourage participants of the conference to consider submitting any
resulting papers from the conference to the journal for review. More
information about the journal can be found here

With our core commitment being to social justice we wish to support
access to the conference for anyone who wishes to come and fits our aims
and values, regardless of access. We welcome expressions of interest
from those who face barriers in traveling to the conference. We will
also have a sliding scale for the registration fee which will be based
on ability to pay, and will be announced at a later date.


24-25 January 2019 - Death and Dying Discussions
Toronto, Canada

Death and Dying Discussions is a mini-symposium on design for end of
life running in conjunction with DesignTO https://designto.org/
(Toronto Design Offsite Festival, January 18-27) and Health Design
Studio at OCADU http://ocadu.ca  The symposium will provide an
opportunity to share experiences of the changing landscape of end of
life and open dialogue about the multiplicity of ways in which design
collaborations might push the boundaries of design to engage with end of
life issues.

The mini-symposium seeks to be a catalyst, to open-up discussion and
expressivity around the role of design and the still relative dominance
of the medical perspective in approaches to dying and death. These
discussions will connect across interrelated spheres - the academy,
medicine, the broader public, and the art and design community.

The mini-symposium will start with a keynote by Ivor Williams (Helix
Centre) on the evening of Thursday, January 24th followed by a day of
discussions through panel, poster/video/demo session, invited and peer
reviewed talks on Friday, January 25th. During the DesignTO there will
be a number of events under the Death and Dying Series with an
opportunity to visit four exhibits in Toronto including a juried exhibit
Until the Last Breath at the Artscape Youngplace gallery.

Invited Speakers

Symposium May 2-3, 2019

This 2-day symposium and workshop at Aalborg University, Denmark,
invites academics, students and practitioners in architecture and design
and related fields to share the latest knowledge about virtual reality
in architecture and design. The symposium offers the opportunity to get
both hands-on experience with a host of different applications of VR in
architecture and design and theoretical insights through presentations
of current research given at the symposium.

Virtual Reality (VR) can create the illusion of being present in virtual
spacesincluding designed architectural spaces and digitised spaces. This
is a achieved by immersive technologies such as adjustable stereoscopic
displays, spatial audio based on the orientation of the user,
height-adjustable camera positions, and parallax effects based on the
movements of the user. The combined effect of these technologies is a
more convincing depiction of sizes, proportions, lighting, materials,
and other properties of spaces than any other technology can offer.

VR is not limited to presenting virtual spaces: it can also provide ways
to interactively explore virtual architectural spaces as well as
abstract design spaces. And it allows us to collaborate with virtually
co-present colleagues, clients, students, etc.whether they are in the
same room or in remote locations. Hence, VR opens not only new ways to
experience and communicate architectural space, existing or unbuilt. It
also opens completely new ways in which to collaborate on architectural

Recently, the commercialisation of VR technologies for consumers and the
increased performance of desktop computers, laptops, and smartphones has
enabled applications of VR on large scales and at low costs that were
hard to imagine even a few years ago. With these rapid developments, it
is more important than ever for educators, scientists, and practitioners
in architecture and designand beyondto learn and stay informed about the
possibilities that VR offers now and in the near future.


21-29 March 2019 - Urban inventories : graduate student

This is a reminder of the upcoming deadline (25 November) for the call
for proposals for graduate students to our international conference
Urban Inventories to be held in Montral.

Inventaires urbains http://be-pi.ca/inventaires  /
Urban inventories http://be-pi.ca/inventories


Conference and exhibition at the Centre de design, Montral, 21 to 29
March 2019


The conference is now open for Master and PhD research
Selected students will present their research in a 10-15 minutes
presentation. These projects will not be included in the exhibition.

The international conference-exhibition invites academics involved in
creative-research in design and related disciplines to contribute to the
reflection on the roles played by documentation and invention in
investigating the city and its territory.

The Urban Inventories conference-exhibition examines the crossover
between documentation and invention as they relate to the city. To
document, to represent and to project urban complexity are essential
tasks toward a deeper understanding of urban spatial production at all
scales and ways to generate new meaning for the city. The
design-research projects presented and exhibited are aimed at
reconsidering urban complexity, representational forms of knowledge, and
research in design and related disciplines. These considerations
highlight four central preoccupations of the conference: situated
practice, representation, projection and investigation. How are
documentary practices in design and their modes of representation
generative of new urban knowledge? How and when does the act of making
an inventory become a design project?

Inspiration Examined: Towards a methodology
Authors: Zo Hendon And Linda Sandino
Page Start: 135
How are museum collections used as a source of inspiration by creative
practitioners? This article describes a project, Inspiration Examined,
funded by Share Academy, which used a narrative research method to
critically examine the process of inspiration using interviews with
students carried out at the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture
(MoDA). Share Academy was a partnership project between University
College London (UCL), University of the Arts London (UAL) and the London
Museums Group, with the aim of exploring the potential for more
effective and mutually beneficial collaborations between Higher
education and specialist London museums. See

The importance of writing as a material practice for art and design
students: A contemporary rereading of the Coldstream Reports
Authors: Julia Lockheart
Page Start: 151
This paper suggests that strong beliefs about the recommendation of
academic writing for practitioners in the Coldstream Reports remain in
teaching and management positions across the current Higher Education
(HE) sector. However, an intensive re-reading of the reports establishes
these beliefs are unfounded. This article posits that upholding these
institutional assumptions may have an impact on how writing is used as a
component of examination and therefore aligned with the need for
academic parity across the HE sector, rather than as a tool for
understanding and articulating practice. As a result, this article calls
for the reinstatement of a unified HE art and design curriculum to be
filled with a diversity of pedagogical approaches, including writing
practices, that are complementary to and inform the purposes of creative

Exploring the functions of reflective writing in the design studio: A
study from the point of view of students
Authors: Koray Gelmez And Humanur Bagli
Page Start: 177
This longitudinal study is based on the reflective writing activities of
students on the Basic Design I course in the Department of Industrial
Product Design at Istanbul Technical University (ITU). Besides the
cognitive, metacognitive and affective influence of reflective writing
on design learning, this study is an attempt to seek answers to how
design students respond to reflective writing in design curricula. The
structure and content of the reflective writing in this study was
inspired by writing-to-learn approaches. We analysed and discussed
students remarks under common issues, and exemplified diary entries that
are related to the act of writing. Based on the findings, the functions
of reflective writing in the design studio were specified.

Re-imagining the sketchbook as a medium of encounter
Authors: Nigel Power
Page Start: 199
This article describes and evaluates an inquiry into the meaning and
value of sketchbooks for students and faculty on an MFA programme in
Visual Communication at a major Thai university. Methodologically, the
inquiry rests upon an extended period of participant observation by the
author. This was informed by a phenomenological approach to the
apprehension of subjective and intersubjective experience.
Conversational data from studio discussions was synthesized with a large
body of example sketchbook pages and writings produced by the
participants. This material served as the basis for theory production
influenced by grounded theory. The outcome of the inquiry is a
re-conceptualization of the sketchbook in terms of the various
encounters that it affords and the roles that these might play in the
development of creative practice.

A multi-method case study of textile craft-design applications
usability and effects on the design process
Authors: Riikonen Sini And Seitamaa-Hakkarainen Pirita
Page Start: 217
This article presents a multi-method case study of five mobile device
and desktop computer applications intended specifically for
craft-design. The main aim of the study was to investigate the effects
of application usage on the craft-design process and to analyse the
usability of the applications from three perspectives: user experience,
traditional usability and functionality. Eight masters level craft
teacher students evaluated the applications and used those to conduct a
design task on a Virtual Design Studio course at the University of
Helsinki. To enable an authentic working environment and style for the
participants and to gather research data remotely, a multi-method
approach was designed that included data from questionnaires, written
tasks and recordings of screen events. Analysis of the effects of
application usage on the craft-design process revealed three factors
that promote changes: the usability of an application, new possibilities
and limitations compared to traditional design methods and the technical
expertise of the designer  usability being the most significant factor
behind the changes observed.

Creative arts technicians in academia: To transition or not to
Authors: Tim Savage
Page Start: 237
This article reports on a small-scale study undertaken at a leading UK
arts university. The study aims to explore the increasing trend of
technicians transitioning their careers into academia. Studies that
focus on technicians are scarce. Those few existing studies describe the
growth of practiced-based teaching in the creative arts, the sectors
increasing reliance on technicians and technicians greater involvement
in shaping the learning experiences of students. Conversely, there is a
rich literature that describes the unbundling and devaluation of
traditional academic roles. This article employs a phenomenographic
methodology to explore the experiences of three members of staff who
have recently transitioned from technician roles into academia,
considering whether the factors that have elevated the status of
technicians have also eroded traditional academic roles, and whether
this enables individuals to transition between what many experience as
disparate camps.

Artifact: Journal of Design Practice
Call For Papers:
Artifact: Journal of Design Practice

Please note the extended deadline is 1 January 2019

Aims & Scope:

Artifact: Journal of Design Practice is an Open Access, scholarly
peer-reviewed journal that publishes doubleblind peer-reviewed design
research broadly concerned with examining the nature of, developments
in, and understandings of design practices.

Design research is rapidly becoming a knowledge-intensive field
characterized by an overwhelming scholarly interest in designs many
interfaces. These range from the role of design in solving complex
societal problems to enhancing the sustainability and profitability of
businesses across industries and geographies. This trajectory in many
ways focuses attention on processes and social construction of meanings
rather than design process outcomes.

Against this backdrop, the journal provides an outlet for researchers
across disciplines and research approaches and encourages contributions
from diverse perspectives that examine practices related to traditional
and novel: activities of design, professions of design, and
organizational uses of design. Moreover, the journal aims to reflect
recent decades substantial transformation of the field of design
research with contributions that touch on design practices from a broad
spectrum of scientific fields such as semiotics, design semantics,
critical discourse analysis, science and technology studies,
design(erly) thinking, management, organization, and material history.

For the upcoming journal issue, we invite manuscripts that may engage
with any of the following themes (but not limited to):

- Theoretical and conceptual perspectives on the nature of current and
future design practice.

- Theoretical and empirical inquiries into the nature and understandings
of contemporary design practices.

- Dimensions of design practice vis--vis design knowledge.

- The role of design practice in driving and shaping entrepreneurial
processes and/or strategies.

- The role of design practice in relation to societal or organizational
change, innovation and value creation from a competitive, financial,
social, and/or sustainability perspective.

Broad questions that may be considered in this regard are:

- Is it possible to limit domain-specific bodies of professional
knowledge and authorized procedures of design?

- What are the roles of classical design disciplines such as craft-based
design, graphic design, industrial design, etc. in relation to the
growing interest in the concept of design thinking?


Prospective authors should ensure their papers follow the Artifact:

International Journal of Creative Media Research

We are very pleased to introduce the International Journal of Creative
Media Research, which is founded and hosted by The Centre for Media
Research at Bath Spa University. The mission statement of
theInternational Journal of Creative Media Research is to be an
interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed and open access journal devoted to
pushing forward the approaches to and possibilities for publishing
creative media-based research.

Championing critical rigour and creative reflection, the journal
willspecialise in capturing the emerging tools, approaches and methods
of practice-based and practice-led research. It will publish original
screen-based, sound-based, time-based and experiential forms of creative
media research, spanning works of film, music, media art, creative and
digital writing, curation practice, multiplatform and ludic artefacts
that contribute to fields across Media and Game Studies, Communication
and Cultural Studies, Art and Design, Music, Creative Writing, Drama,
Dance, Performing Arts, Film and Screen Studies, or Education.

We will publish two issues a year: one an open call that publishes on
any topic relevant to the journals scope, the other a themed special
issue with a guest editor that contributes new research to one of The
Centre for Media Researchs three areas of specialism: Digital
Materialities, Film & Social Context, or Play & Multiplatform.
Essentially, we are interested in receiving submissions from researchers
who want to have a voice in shaping the future of creative media-based

In seeking to push forward approaches to publishing creative media-based
research, the journal will also make use of Bath Spa's MediaWall - an
architectural scale portrait format gallery, consisting of ten 55 panels
and standing 4 meters wide and 7.5 meters tall - by establishing an
annualAward in Creative Media Research, also to be judged by our
international editorial board, which will provide creatives with a
chance to produce, curate and disseminate creative media-based research
for a unique platform and audience at Bath Spa University. Applicants
must submit a 300-word statement that outlines the research question,
the methodology or approach, and clarifies how the MediaWalls aesthetic
form augments the aims of the research.

Our journal has a registered ISSN, will be indexed in the Directory of
Open Access Journals, and will assign all published submissions with a
DOI (Digital Object Identifier). It also shares an affiliation with
theMeCCSA Practice Network, which champions practice within the UK's
Media, Communications and Cultural Studies Association, ensuring that
those that teach and research practice across the academy have a strong
voice within the subject association.

Towards making sense of self through emotional experiences in craft-art
Authors: Milla Ojala And Seija Karppinen And Erja Syrjlinen
Page Start: 201
The goal of this article is to explore how young craft students make
sense of themselves through emotional experiences in craft-art. The
study employs the grounded theory (GT) method. The key theoretical
concepts of self, emotional experiences and engagement in craft making
have been chosen based on how they support or resonate with the data and
analysis. The data consists of several types of material that was
collected in three schools: portfolios, participant observation,
ethnographic interviews and students diaries. The data showed that
students emotions were strongly present in the craft activity. Emotions
were related to the students management of the different stages of the
craft process, the expectations towards the outcome, the students
holistic bodily and mental feeling during the making and their
engagement throughout the entire process. All these elements, reflected
against pre-existing theories, indicate that while studying craft-art,
the participants were able to make sense of themselves in many ways. The
analysis led to the finding that when students experience emotional
ownership of the process in making craft-art, pleasant somatic
experiences, realization of their own potential, and the result of craft
making is a meaningful product in which their personal interests are
materialized, a positive sense of self can be achieved. This article is
a part of the larger study that focuses on students craft making
experiences in the context of Finnish Basic Education in the Arts (BEA).

The ostrich eggshell beads craft of the Ju/hoansi: A reflection on
modern craft theories
Authors: Amit Zoran
Page Start: 229
Western (modern) discourse often reviews craft in the light of
industrialism and mass manufacturing, associating it with symbolic
qualities that arise from the modern economy. This discourse highlights
the dichotomy between machine-centred and human-centred production. Yet,
some of these popular craft theories fall short when considered outside
this context. For example, some foraging societies prioritize investment
in social ties over material storage, offering additional perspectives
on our study of craft. In this article, I present the case of the
ostrich eggshell beads craft of the Ju/hoansi, former hunter-gatherers
from Southern Africa, which exemplify the plasticity of their practice
in adapting to varying economic conditions. Using three case studies, I
discuss different ways in which the Ju/hoansi have commoditized and used
their craft heritage as a comparatively stable economic foundation in a
reality where some (modern) craft values, such as creative engagement,
risk and unpredictability, can be found everywhere in their day-to-day

Crafting environmental policies into action: Energy consulting practices
of craftspeople
Authors: Roger Andre Sraa
Page Start: 255
This article discusses the emerging practices of craftspeople
particularly carpenters  in relation to policies of energy-efficient
homes in the building sector. The Norwegian political goal of making
buildings more sustainable and energy friendly by reducing 40 per cent
of the energy used in the building sector provides new challenges for
craftspeople who are tasked with effecting these changes. Based on
qualitative interviews, this article explores how craftspeople working
as energy consultants form their new role as what I call green-collar
workers. The article explains how energy policies are translated into
physical buildings by energy consultants. Four practices of craftspeople
working as energy consultants are analysed  the practices of
economizing, controlling, coordinating and selling. These practices are
part of a complex sustainable transition that is taking place in the
building sector. As craftspeople are the workers actually enacting
energy policies in the building sector by working with energy mitigation
hands on (whilst also building on their traditional crafts experience),
it is necessary to understand their practices to further reduce energy
use in buildings.

Rereading and revising: Acknowledging the smallness (sometimes) of craft
Authors: Jessica Hemmings
Page Start: 273
Attention to the power of craft has come to dominate craftivism
discourse. This article is interested in disrupting some of the claims
of craftivism with a reminder that craft can remain powerless compared
to the scale of the social problems that surround it. My interest in
smallness is driven by a desire to make reasonable claims on behalf of
crafts power in an era when modest impact feels like an unwelcome truth
in academic research. Craft research is perhaps ill positioned to expose
itself as small. To see past this blind spot, I look to examples of
craft practice described in novels and short stories from Chile, India
and Zimbabwe: Isabelle Allendes The House of Spirits (1985), Rohinton
Mistrys A Fine Balance (1996), Yvonne Veras short story collection Why
Dont You Carve Other Animals (1992), Tsitsi Dangarembgas The Book of Not
(2006) and Brian Chikwavas Harare North (2009). I propose that craft, in
the contexts discussed here, accrues meaning through its limitations.
This close reading has required me to revise the importance that I had
placed, particularly on textiles in Zimbabwean fiction, in the past and
instead recognize that what craft is unable to repair and recover are
also components of its identity. As craft scholarship as a discipline
expands, I find it increasingly important  amidst the many sincere
efforts to proclaim what craft can do  to also voice what it is unable
to change as a legitimate component of crafts identity.

Ceramics and locational identity: Investigating the symbolism of
material culture in relation to a sense of place
Authors: Peter Bodenham
Page Start: 287
This article is an investigation into material culture and its symbolism
in terms of place and space and addresses the research question why do
select ceramic artefacts evoke or become symbolic of a specific location
and sense of place?. The research covers the areas of conceptual ceramic
design, craft culture and practice-led research. Dutch design duo Nadine
Sterk and Lonny van Ryswyck  Atelier NL  are discussed as an example of
contemporary designer makers who create objects that embody social
meaning and express an evocative sense of locational identity. The two
Eindhoven-based designer-makers creative process combines and reveals
different strands of academic and material enquiry and representing a
creative process that flows between making, scientific knowledge,
anthropology, archaeology, geology, art, design and craft. Atelier NLs
practice is representative of a current interest within visual and
material culture in both practice- led research and socially engaged
practice. The narrative of their research-based practice is
unequivocally part of the production and presentation of their work.
Atelier NLs practice stands for a creative partnership that investigates
and celebrates their locality in addition to responding to a sense of
culture loss indicative of mainstream patterns of design, production and
consumption of goods and services.

Authors: Marlene Little

Focusing on my current body of work, the Mem-or-y series, this article
is an autobiographical account presenting my ongoing practice and
research interest in the interrelationship between photography, textiles
and Zeitgeist concerns. In this body of work, through a tacit response
to materials and processes, craft practice becomes a vehicle for
engaging with social issues, exploring complex questions surrounding
personal concepts of identity, the reliability of memory and the
increasing incidence and awareness of the many forms of dementia,
particularly Alzheimers and vascular dementia. Fabric has become a
vehicle for exploring these concerns.

10-11 December 2018 - TIPS by Design symposium in Edinburgh

Researchers in Design Informatics at the University of Edinburgh are
organising a 2-day symposium on the 10th & 11th December in Edinburgh to
explore current and future design issues surrounding TIPS themes, and
are looking for PhD and early career researchers to attend
(accommodation and attendance are free).

As pervasive systems increasingly permeate everyday life, designing to
aid data legibility, literacy, explainability and flexible
decision-making is key. The widening gap between everyday users
understanding of and the impermeability of black algorithmic boxes
increasingly challenges current systems to ensure secure and private use
for individuals, communities and publics. This symposium aims to tackle,
debate and explore questions around the nature and implications of
ethical, social and political perspectives for designing technologies.
The topic of this symposium will explore issues of Trust, Identity,
Privacy and Security (TIPS) in Technology from different contexts
through design perspectives. Showcasing how researchers, designers and
developers are tackling the increasingly big issues programmers and
systems developers may face and how we design fair, ethical, unbiased,
empowering systems at the outset of a new technological project.

This 2-day symposium on the 10th & 11th December in Edinburgh provides
an exciting opportunity for PhD and early career researchers to connect
with other TIPS researchers from across the country. Poster presentation
and demo sessions will allow researchers to increase exposure to their
research, while interactive workshops with leaders from diverse
backgrounds will offer opportunities to learn about existing and novel
tools and methods to support the design and development of future
systems. See programme details and how to sign up

23-24 January 2019 - Futurescan 4: Valuing Practice
University of Bolton, UK


Fashion and textiles practice intersects traditional processes and
innovative technologies. Tacit knowledge acquired through hand skills,
making, utilising equipment and working with processes is fundamental to
developing understanding. Although practical learning is valued, the
teaching of creative and making subjects is under threat in formal
education. Within the fashion and textile industries there are skills
shortages. Heritage crafts risk being lost as digital technologies and
automation impact upon future generations.

The Association of Fashion & Textile Courses (FTC) forthcoming
conference Futurescan 4: Valuing Practice, provides an international
forum for the dissemination of research, creative practice and pedagogy
surrounding fashion and textiles. Contributions from established and
early career researchers, postgraduates, practitioners, makers and
educators will be presented under the following topics:

Valuing Artisan Skills, Drawing and Making
Learning from History, Tradition and Industry
Collaborating and Cross-disciplinary Working
Integrating and Connecting Digital Technologies
Designing Responsibly and Working Sustainably
Promoting Diversity, Employability and Community
Investigating Creative Processes and Pedagogy

The conference will include keynote speaker presentations, full papers
(20-minute presentations), short papers (10-minute presentations) and an
exhibition of practice-based work.
