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

Artifact does not charge APCs or submission fees.

Design research is rapidly becoming a knowledge-intensive field,
characterized by an overwhelming scholarly interest in designs many
interfaces, from the role of design in solving societal problems, to
enhancing the sustainability and profitability of businesses across
industries and geographies. Artifact encourages contributions from diverse
perspectives related to both traditional and the emerging new activities of
design, professions of design, and organizational uses of design. 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.

We invite manuscripts that may engage with (but are not limited to) any of
the following themes:

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

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

- The role of design practice in shaping and realizing 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
or sustainability perspective.

Broad questions that may be considered 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?

- In a time where the boundaries between professional design fields tend to
blur, does it any longer make sense to talk about a professional design
practice, rather than many ways of practicing design?

Submission guidelines

Prospective authors should ensure their papers follow the Artifact:
Journal of Design Practice author guidelines and Intellect Style Guide.

All submission must include a signed Open Access publishing agreement
giving us permission to publish your paper, should it be accepted by our
peer-review panel.

For questions regarding submission procedures or any additional information

5-6 September 2019 - CAMEo Conference: Re-Futuring Creative Economies

CAMEo Research Institute for Cultural and Media Economies at University of
Leicester is delighted to announce our call for papers for our 3rd annual

Re-Futuring Creative Economies
Leicester, UK

CAMEo is an interdisciplinary research institute exploring the changing
dynamics of production and consumption in the cultural and creative
industries, creative economy, media and arts  with a particular emphasis on
participation, sustainability and social justice. We now invite submissions
for our forthcoming conferenceRe-Futuring Creative Economies.

As the creative economy has become instituted as a field of policy and
industrial activity, so it has become invested with orthodox and optimistic
assumptions about thesocial futuresit anticipates  pacific visions of
progress and advancement that tend to take for granted renewed and stable
economic growth, an increase in social participation and inclusion, and the
emergence of clean technologies to drive benign and enabling social
experiences and innovations. These optimistic projections overlook a range
of problems occasioned by current and future crises. Such projections are
alsode-futuring -in that they serve to close down the range of different,
alternative, sustainable and socially-just creative economies that might
otherwise be conceived and lived. What opportunity now is there for
imagining and undertaking other, more progressive, creative economy

We invite contributions for papers and panels that explore progressive
possible futures for the cultural, media and creative economies.
Contributions are invited on any of the following (or related) themes:

theorizing critical creative economies;

challenging inequalities and injustices in cultural and creative work;

improving inclusion, reciprocity and sharing in creative economies;

building humane, alternative and heterodox creative economies;

constructively challenging mainstream creative economy policy and practice;

making creative economies ecologically sustainable;

theorizing circular, post-growth or degrown creative economies;

imagining utopian and/or dystopian creative futures;

Please use the application form and submit by Friday 7 June 2019. Keynote
speakers and venue will be announced in due course.

Fee: GBP80 (two days) includes lunches and refreshments. Optional evening
dinner and social (Thursday). A limited number of supported places for
currently unwaged/unemployed/institutionally unsupported researchers will
be made available  please see application form for details.

11-12 July 2019 - TRACEY Drawing Research Network Conference
Conveners: Drawing Research Group, Loughborough University

The conference aims to explore the notion of embodied drawing. By embodied
drawing we suggest that embodied could be synonymous with the act of
drawing, that drawing is an act of embodiment. As such, the making of a
mark expands to become an act of mediation. Yet if all bodies are
mediat(ing)ed, they too mark the skins and surfaces of other bodies in the
briefest immediacies  in traces of gesture, events, at and through the
borderline. A curious folding of/with materiality  a drawing. And as
drawing expands there come lines of flight and queer becomings: of further
technological mediations, prostheses, computer augmented realities,
boundary-making practices that offer up new forms of embodiment, of bodies
yet to be named, without outline. And so we ask; what does it mean to have
a body? What can they do? What can be drawn?

Registration is now open for the conference and can be booked online by

23 June 2019 - Call for workshop papers for the workshop "Towards a
research agenda for Gameful Creativity" in conjunction with the ACM
conference Designing Interactive Systems(DIS'19) and Creativity and
Cognition 2019 (C&C'19)
San Diego, USA


Due to globalization and our society relying on technology more than ever,
creativity and creative thinking have become a highly valued resource.
Often defined as the capacity to cope with advances, dynamic changes and
opportunities, creativity is understood as an ability to produce something
new and meaningful. Recently, there has been an increasing interest in
fostering creative potential through game-related activities. While there
are first encouraging results on video game play encouraging creative
thinking, many aspects and details still require further exploration.

This workshop aims to bring together both researchers and practitioners
interested in the application of gamefulness to enhance creative thinking.
In the workshop we will review previous work in the field, identify and
discuss avenues for future research as well as brainstorm methods to
explore the relationship between gamefulness and creativity.

Our objective is for this workshop to serve as a think tank and forum from
which a research agenda as well as a vibrant community active in the field
of gameful creativity will emerge. While we do not want to restrict the
scope of the workshop, we plan to cover research avenues for the potential
application of gamification to promote creative thinking in various
contexts (e.g. collaborative ideation, edutainment), the effect of games on
creativity and in particular on creative abilities as well as tailoring
those gameful interventions to individual preferences (i.e.


This workshop focuses on a cross-disciplinary exchange of experience,
insights and ideas. To promote an engaging exchange and help build a
research agenda, the workshop will include participatory and hands-on
activities such as group-based mapping exercises, a reflection and framing
session as well as a gameful ideation exercise illustrating the potential
of combining gamefulness and creativity.


We invite all interested to submit a 2-4 page position paper in the SIGCHI
Extended Abstract format. This position paper should either a) describe
previous work in the intersection of gamefulness and creativity (e.g
empirical or theoretical), b) contain a proposal on what aspects should be
explored in the future (e.g. game genre, methods) or c) previous work
outside the field of gameful creativity analyzed under the lens of how
those concepts could inspire gameful creativity. At least one author of
each accepted paper must register and attend the workshop plus at least one
day of the conference. Position papers will be evaluated based on relevance
to the workshop themes and potential to spark discussion.

Please send your submission before May 17th 2019 via email to

The Experiential Design conference calls for a strand on virtual learning
environments and gamification in learning. The overall education strand of
the event is premised on the Effective Learning Environments Initiative of
the OECD and an attempt to ensure input from professionals in education,
teaching and learning into the design of teaching spaces and learning

You can present via skype, pre-recorded film, written paper or in-person.
Cambridge Scholars Publishing and Routledge involved for publications.


CONFERENCE: Experiential Design - Rethinking relations between people,
objects and environments

ABSTRACTS: 20 June 2019 (Round One)
Place: Florida State University

The Effective Learning Environments initiative of the OECD aims to improve
how learning environments support the pedagogies, curriculum, assessment
and organisational structures of education to fully develop students
capacities for the 21st century. The World Institute of Psychology
identifies multiple links between education environments and learning
aptitude, mood and behavior while UNESCO believes that education is a human
right for all throughout life and that access must be matched by quality of
both delivery and setting.

This Florida State University conference strand and its publications are
premised on the belief that education professionals need to collaborate
more closely with the designers, architects and planners who create the
classrooms, learning spaces and tools we use daily, whether they be in a
school environment, a play setting or in the home.

On that basis it brings together academics from education, teaching and
learning with colleagues from environmental psychology, architecture,
interior, product and game design. Other conference starnds focus on health
professionals working with spatial designers.

We are pleased to announce the publication of the journal for the 2017
edition of Making Futures, and the call for papers for the 2019 conference.

Plymouth College of Art are pleased to announce the publication of:


VOLUME V, ISSN 2042-1664

Making Futures 2017 Journal


Please also see the Call for Papers for the Making Futures VI international
conference which will take place in September 2019:



Making Futures 2019 Call for Papers


We are pleased to announce that the proceedings of the V edition of the
biennial Making Futures international research conference held in September
2017, by Plymouth College of Art, are available here


The online volume consists of over sixty papers, plus videos of all Keynote
speakers, and of the commissioned performance by the Korean
master-craftsman, Kanghyo LEE.

Recognising the seemingly intractable crises (social, economic and
environmental) of Modernity, this edition investigates these emergencies
through the optic of contemporary craft and neo-artisanal maker movements
with the aim of situating these as part of a forward-looking attempt to
re-imagine a viable late Modernity through a new emerging aesthetics of
production and consumption.

This is the topic that the papers in this volume both exemplify and
explore, engaging with what it means to make and its future significations:
personally, socially, politically, its impact on sustainable agendas, its
potential to subvert mass consumption, its relation to new technologies,
its contribution to community and 'place-making', and to the possible
emergence of new political economies. In short, to the idea of a
sustainable late Modernity that can embrace small-scale producers as an
urgent and progressive project in its own right.


Open Access & Archive Update:

Making Futures reaffirms its commitment to the full free Open Access
standard established with its first edition in 2010. Attracting an
increasingly international readership profile, the Making Futures archive
now holds over 274 entries on contemporary craft and design to make,
establishing it as a unique and valuable research resource for all those
interested in the themes the series explores. Note that to safeguard its
longevity, the archive of past Journal editions is currently being
transferred to a new site. However, readers wanting to consult past
editions can still access the material through the older journal site

0ebfc625b73b9c6a06f071424&id=7502af0d79&e=87acfd164f , which will remain
live until all contents are transferred across. Full details can be found

Making Futures VI: People, Place, Meaning - Crafting Social Worlds & Social
Making will take place at Plymouth College of Art, UK, on Thursday 19 and
Friday 20 September 2019.

Community is at the heart of the Making Futures agenda and in People,
Place, Meaning  Crafting Social Worlds & Social Making, this 2019 edition
will, as well as appreciating the value of makers as singular creative
agents producing material objects, focus on the social dimensions of maker
practices and how these can positively contribute to the construction and
regeneration of communities.

Of particular interest is how individual practices can develop and promote
socially responsible maker practices, and also how these singular
enterprises can cluster into place-based creative maker-ecologies capable
of producing value through the enhancement of community life in ways that
encourage more progressive circuits of engagement, production and

2019 Summer School on Integrated Product Development (ipdISS2019) (Malta &
Magdeburg 2019)

With the industrial world looking at ways of how to overcome increasing
demands on product performance and product individualisation, there is an
increasing need to exploit product development to cope with these business
challenges. The utilization of IPD concepts and methods leads to products
and services that have an overall better performance than those developed
in a more traditional way due to the management of the interplay between
design, manufacturing, business, and lot of other aspects such as
sustainability, as well as their mutual influences. IPD's scientific
principles are required to enable forward looking researchers as well as
developers to be able to exploit emerging technologies in an effective and
beneficial way.

The 2019 Summer School on Integrated Product Development (ipdISS2019) takes
place over two weeks, one in May in Malta and one in September in
Magdeburg, Germany. ipdISS19 aims at providing a platform through which
postgraduates working in IPD related fields can sharpen their understanding
of current & emerging research issues in this interdisciplinary field. By
the end of the two-week summer school, participants would have improved
their competence & abilities to tackle research issues with an engineering
& business-oriented mind-set. ipdISS2019 is endorsed by the Design Society
and is organized by 5 Professors, 2 from Germany, 1 from Malta and 2 from


TRACEY website

The directors of TRACEY: drawing and visualisation research are please to
announce the launch of the new website:


TRACEYs aim is to stimulate, host and publish diverse perspectives on
drawing and visualisation to/for a community of researchers, practitioners,
educators and students. We advocate the value of drawing and visualisation
in professional and educational contexts.

We encourage participation and collaboration. Our aims are facilitated
through two central activities: as an International peer-reviewed
electronic open access journal and as host for the Drawing Research Network

The journal aims to publish drawing and visualisation research (visual,
audio and textual), in order to introduce a diverse range of material to
practitioners, educators, students and researchers. In this respect, the
journal aims to represent many perspectives on drawing and visualisation
and advocates the value of drawing in professional and educational
contexts. Annually the journal will invite submissions through two routes:

1.  an annual call will invite submissions against a specific research
theme, typically for submission in September and publication in March

2.  we will accept the submission of speculative papers, at any point in
the year, with a final deadline of March, for an edition typically
published in September. This will offer the opportunity for authors to
disseminate their research on any theme.

The journal is now hosted on the Open Journal system platform at
Loughborough University and can be accessed here:
https://ojs.lboro.ac.uk/TRACEY It is the intention of TRACEY to migrate all
peer-reviewed content to the OJS system, whilst this process is ongoing the
previous TRACEY site will serve as an archive of legacy content. The
original site is still available here:


The Drawing Research Network (DRN) is an international community of
researchers/artists/designers/educators. Alongside the existing drawing
research email discussion list, the new DRN blog offers a place where
people can engage in debate about all aspects of drawing practice (theory,
philosophy, education, methodology), post details of upcoming events and
exhibitions and disseminate research and practice in progress.

We hope that you will find the new website facilitating and continue to
assist TRACEY in developing this rich area of research and practice.
