Inside the City
Interior Educators (IE) conference at The Cass, London Metropolitan
University

The third Interior Educators (IE) conference, following Interior Futures
at Northumbria University in 2011 and Body + Space at Middlesex
University in 2014, explores the condition of the interior in the city.

Conference call

The conference invites interior educators, practitioners and new and
established researchers to pursue and discuss ideas about and proposals
for the citys interior.

Keynote Speakers

Marcus Engman,Head of Design IKEA

Sevil Peach,Interior Architect, Frame magazine's 2018 'Lifetime
Achievement' awardwinner

Professor Lois Weinthal,Chair of Interior Design, Ryerson University,
Toronto

This conference seeks to place the interior and the discipline of
InteriorDesign firmly atthe heart of the debate of how the city is
inhabited.

We invite reflection on changes to the urban interior, to its role and
form and its significance in the lives of the citys occupants. We are
interested in how the complex interplays of influence and interest
andthe challenge of new and existing contexts inform the interior..

We welcome individual and collaborative projects, subject specific and
interdisciplinarypractices, processes, theories and histories in
relation to all aspects of the design of Interior spaces.

We seek contributions that reflect upon the interior'scapacity for
articulating the complex choreography of the city. Addressing, through
design, the changing contexts of the city for the inhabitant: resident,
commuter, worker, migrant, tourist, pleasure-seeker, student, temporary,
permanent; and the spatial, material, cultural,economic, technological
or environmental expectations these bring to the role of the interior
designer.

We invite papers and projects that specifically interrogate the design,
production and occupation of the citys interiors in current, historical
or future contexts.

All submissions must be original unpublished work.

Possible themes may include, but are not limited to:

- The interiors context
- Interior lives
- Re-working interiors
- Density and space
- The seen and unseen interior

Call for Papers - Special Issue "Open & Distributed + Design &
Production | Design strategies for enabling indie designers and makers"
- SDRJ

We kindly invite you to submit a full paper for the Special Issue of the
Strategic Design Research Journal (May/Aug 2019, Vol. 12, n.2): Open &
Distributed + Design & Production | Design strategies for enabling indie
designers and makers.

Open & Distributed + Design & Production | Design strategies for
enabling indie designers and makers

Guest editors: Massimo Menichinelli, Massimo Bianchini, Stefano Maffei

http://revistas.unisinos.br/index.php/sdrj/pages/view/call#ODDP

Information for contributors

Designers practices have constantly evolved in the last two centuries,
and during the last decades new design and production paradigms have
emerged, transforming the discipline from processes developed
exclusively by professionals to processes where users have an
increasingly important and active role. The digitization of society, the
democratization of technology, the personalization of production and the
gradual opening of the design practice are emerging phenomena that
generate a new scenario in which the processes of creation, production
and distribution of goods and services is undergoing profound changes

The increasing number of designers and creative individuals (which is
not accompanied by an equally strong demand of design jobs) represents a
new condition that pushes some of them to self-produce goods, often at a
small scale, by integrating complementary resources they do not possess.
This is possible thanks to a wide network of physical and digital
platforms for learning and training, research, design, production,
distribution and (micro)financing. This trend is strongly connected with
the Maker movement, a loose global movement of individuals who focus on
making physical projects but with a digital layer and digital tools,
often with collaborative processes and the sharing of the digital files
or documentation. Makers often meet and work in globally-networked
laboratories such as Fab Labs, Makerspaces and Hackerspaces that provide
access to a local and global community of like-minded actors and to
several digital fabrication technologies able to manufacture easily and
locally digital projects. The democratization of technology, education,
content and community building of such laboratories increases the
possibilities for professional and amateur designers and at the same
time it opens up new possibilities of collaboration and interaction
among them and with other stakeholders

All these phenomena, which integrate design skills and the making
approach, enable the development of new entrepreneurial types of
professional producers. On one hand designers acquire more technological
and practical skills, on the other hand, makers evolve their design
attitude and capabilities. Design and production are becoming thus more
Open and Distributed: among several actors, several approaches, several
locations and laboratories. The change of design and production models
is becoming the core topic of the research and innovation policies, in
many countries, regions and cities. At the same time, several bottom up
initiatives are being developed by local people and associations,
especially in urban contexts. Moreover, experts in economics, sociology,
technology are studying manufacturing process changes in terms of
development of personal fabrication, growth and impact of new
communities of makers and the return to new forms of craftsmen.
Furthermore, we think this is an important issue for the design on a
global scale that has many points of convergence with the global theme
of social innovation.

The evolution of Open & Distributed Design & Production can be already
measured in decades, with many initiatives by both practitioners and
researchers, and its themes have been discussed already in several
conferences (like Crafting the Future, Open Design for E-very-thing,
several editions of the research strand of the FABx conferences,
organized by the International Fab Lab Association, and many more),
journal issues (like several issues of the Journal of the Peer
Production, the Copytheft issue of Disegno  The Journal of Design
Culture, the Open Design at the Intersection of Making and Manufacturing
issue of the HumanComputer Interaction journal, and many more) and
research projects (MAKE-IT, Open Maker, OpenCare, Digital DIY and many
more). This is a phenomenon that has already been promoted, discussed
and studied by several disciplines and also design researchers, but
while most of these contributions have explored its beginnings and main
traits, we believe that it might be reaching a turning point in its
evolution. Discussions about this phenomenon could be more strategic if
they focus now more on how to make it more structured and prepared for
the long term than just focusing on exploring common traits and how to
scale it without thinking about a long term strategy. Political, social,
economical and legal issues are increasingly relevant in order to make
such initiatives inclusive, their processes and organization transparent
and their management fair and equal.

We especially welcome proposals that addresses existing criticalities of
the Open & Distributed Design & Production phenomenon and their
connections with Strategic Design: how these criticalities impact over
Strategic Design, and how could Strategic Design impact over them?

We suggest these strands for the discussion of Open & Distributed Design
& Production:

- Opening Design & Opening Production: Open and collaborative processes
are spreading in production of goods and services. Practices and
modalities for value production based on shared resources and active
collaboration between diverse stakeholders are growing in diverse
fields. From software and information production (with commons-based p2p
production) to the consumer sector, (collaborative consumption) to the
public service field (co-creation of services) to social innovation and
sustainability (collaborative services and product-service systems).
This strand aims at exploring how design can support open and
collaborative practices and which impact they could have on boosting a
local economy generating resilience.

- Platforms for opening design & production: Open and collaborative
processes are spreading in production of goods and services. Practices
and modalities for value production based on shared resources and active
collaboration between diverse stakeholders are growing in diverse
fields. From software and information production (with commons-based p2p
production) to the consumer sector, (collaborative consumption) to the
public service field (co-creation of services) to social innovation and
sustainability (collaborative services and product-service systems).
This strand aims at exploring open and collaborative practices of value
generation understanding how design can support them and which impact
they could have on boosting a local economy generating resilience.

- Factories for opening design & production: Fab Labs, Hackerspaces,
Living Labs but also public libraries offering production facilities;
infrastructures for prototyping and supporting local production are
spreading, as facilities where open access to technology and
collaboration between participants lowers the threshold for making
things and testing activities and initiatives. The aim of this strand is
to discuss how these infrastructures could become more effective in
supporting local forms of production and experimentation.

- Design for "indie" innovation: The democratization of design (from
open source design to the designer as a "mass profession") linked to the
rise of DIY culture generates a new scenario for the development of
design processes which have very different characteristics from the
traditional ones. This strand aims at exploring these new design process
related to the autonomous development of new product-service system that
can be produced on-demand and on-site; the regeneration/refurbishing and
upgrade of products and technologies; and the creative repair and/or
hacking.

Strategic design has always been considered a specific disciplinary
field mainly focused on product-service systems design and development.
Its applications, methodologies and tools stimulate individuals and
organizations to adopt and use design as a key factor/resource to
innovate products and services, production, communication and
distribution processes and generate economic, social, and cultural
values. In an emerging scenario, which is characterized by the rise of
open and distributed models, creative, production and distribution
processes are transforming conditions and environments in which
strategic design has operated so far. New independent actors are
emerging in economic, the nature of organizations is evolving in a
hybrid direction, design and R&D processes become less hierarchical and
more collaborative, user are changing the relationship with
products-services systems. In this perspective, the influence and
contribution of disciplines such as marketing - traditionally very
"close" to strategic design - seems now less relevant as well as the
extreme attention on brand identity and appearance. But strategic design
is and remains a disciplinary field that highly stimulates individuals
and organizations to think, work and act adopting a systemic perspective
and a holistic view. For this reason, this special issue of SDRJ wants
to thus gather contributions that explore what and (overall) how
strategic design has been could and/or should evolve its own patrimony
of approaches, methodologies and tools to operate and innovate in
emerging contexts of open and distributed design.

Furthermore, we also suggest to investigate the above themes, with the
perspective of Strategic Design, focusing on the social, political,
legal, environmental and economic issues especially through critical
trends such as unemployment, automation, democracy, decentralization,
decolonization, gender issues, sustainability, circular economy,
degrowth, anthropocene, post-humanism, techno-evangelism,
techno-determinism and so on. Proposals on different strands, issues and
trends that explore the criticalities of Open & Distributed Design &
Production with the perspective of Strategic Design are very much
welcomed.

CfP: Perspectives and Theories of Social Innovation for Ageing
Population

In collaboration with the journals Frontiers in Sociology & Frontiers in
Public Health (www.frontiersin.org) we are bringing together a selected
group of international experts to contribute to an open-access article
collection on:

Perspectives and Theories of Social Innovation for Ageing Population

Guest Editors:

Andrzej Klimczuk, Warsaw School of Economics, Warsaw, Poland
ukaz Tomczyk, Pedagogical University of Krakw, Krakw, Poland

The abstract submission deadline is 27 June 2018.
The manuscript submission deadline is 24 October 2018.
Visit the collection homepage for the full description of the project:

https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/8000

About this Research Topic:

In recent years we may observe increasing interest in the development of
social innovation both regarding theory as well as the practice of
responding to social problems and challenges. One of the crucial
challenges at the beginning of the 21st century is population ageing.
Various new and innovative initiatives, programs, schemes, and projects
to respond to negative consequences of this demographic process are
emerging around the world. However, social theories related to ageing
are still insufficiently combined with these new practices, social
movements, organisational models, and institutions. Many scholars are
still using notions and tools from classical theories of social
gerontology or the sociology of ageing such as disengagement theory,
activity theory, and successful and productive ageing. Such theories do
not sufficiently explain ageing in the context of, for example, a broad
use of the information and communications technologies (ICTs) including
robotics and automation, new healthcare and long-term care models,
advancements in the development and governance of age-friendly
environments, and public engagement of older adults into co-production
of services delivered by public, private, non-governmental as well as
non-formal entities.

In this Research Topic we welcome papers critically evaluating the
existing social perspectives and theories in the field of ageing,
introducing innovative approaches and comparative studies. We welcome
researchers from areas such as sociology, pedagogy, public policy,
economics, management, and public health. The contributions can be based
on theoretical studies as well as the implementation of social
innovation and programs addressed at ageing and older people. Reviews
and papers on philosophical and ethical issues are also welcome.

As a contributing author, you will benefit from:

- High visibility with eBook and our research network
- Rigorous, transparent and fast peer review
- 10% discount on publishing fees

6-8 February 2019 - Leverage Points 2019

International conference on sustainability research and transformation,
Lneburg, Germany, Leverage Points 2019: International conference on
sustainability research and transformation, Lneburg, Germany, 6-8
February  Call for abstracts

Humanity sits at a crossroad between tragedy and transformation, and now
is a crucial time for sustainability research. Radical approaches are
needed in sustainability research and praxis if they are to meet the
challenges of the 21st century.

Inspired by the work of Donella Meadows, Leverage Points: Places to
intervene in a system, this conference will explore the deep leverage
points that can lead to sustainability transformations, asking: how do
we transform ourselves, our science, our institutions, our interventions
and our societies for a better future?

The conference is premised on three principles:

1. The importance of searching for places where interventions can lead
to transformative change;

2. Open inquiry, exchange and co-learning across multiple theoretical,
methodological and empirical research approaches; and

3. The need for reflection on modes of research and processes in
sustainability research.

We hope that this conference will help us move from incremental to
transformational change; extend our thinking about complex
sustainability challenges and deepen our collective and
transdisciplinary research practices.

The call for abstracts is open until 30 June 2018.

This summit is geared towards exploring how to bridge the area of
expertise between creative practitioners and academic researchers. We
believe that by creating connections between humanitarians and design
professionals that such collaborations can result in designs for
dignified and sustainable solutions to tackle today's most pressing
humanitarian challenges. At the same time, the Summit offers students
the opportunity to directly engage in dialogue with humanitarian and
design professionals to think through some of the most pressing problems
facing humanity.

Presenters from organizations and companies include the Airbel Center at
the International Rescue Committee, UNICEF, MASS Design Group, The MoMA,
IDEO.org, The UN Migration Agency, the UN Refugee Agency, Airbnb, and
more. They will be in dialogue with individuals from lead academic
institutions such as Harvard Graduate School of Design, Universitat
Internacional de Catalunya School of Architecture, and Portland State
University for Public Interest Design. We also will hold break out
sessions allowing for dynamic engagement between participants and
experts.

5 September 2018 - Pattern and Chaos Symposium
Norwich University of the Arts, Duke Street, Norwich
Hosted by Norwich University of the Arts Pattern and Chaos Research
Group

Where pattern meets chaos is a space where conventional subject
boundaries become re-aligned and inter-disciplinary is a given. This
symposium aims to inform current practices and critical positions in art
and design through a focus on processes which address relationships
between pattern and chaos. Such dialogues might be envisaged as real
and/or imaginary, as science and/or art, as messy and/or composed; what
matters is their effect in developing innovative forms of
materialization and/or provoking new ways of knowing.

Confirmed speakers:

Charlotte Higgins, Guardian chief culture writer editorial board member
(keynote speaker)

Dr Peter Lovatt, Dance Psychologist, Reader in Psychology, University of
Hertfordshire (keynote speaker)

Dr Veronika Kapsali, Reader in Materials Technology and Design, London

Further details of speakers, events, registration and schedule will be
published as soon as they are available.

Research Market Place

To accompany the symposium there will be table-based or panel-mounted
displays of work aligned to our theme of Beyond Pattern and Chaos. In
the spirit of the symposium there will be a range of proposals including
artefacts and/or images that encompass art, design and/or craft
practices relating to this theme. We wish to encourage as broad a range
of responses as possible. Selected researchers will be allocated space
in the foyer of our Duke Street building. Over an extended lunch period
there will be an opportunity to discuss the research with market
browsing delegates.
