CALL FOR PAPERS


Doctoral Education in Design: Foundations for the Future

An international conference

La Clusaz, France
9-12 July, 2000

Organized by

Norwegian School of Management Nordic Innovation Project
Design Research Society
ICS - Interactive Coaching Services

Co-sponsored by

The Norwegian School of Management Center for Knowledge Management
Staffordshire University, Advanced Research Institute


Conference call:

The past five years have seen a dramatic growth in all areas of design
research. New professional demands, emerging research streams, and the new
educational challenges of the knowledge economy are reshaping the context
of design. As universities around the world develop models of doctoral
education in design, the challenges involved mirror these larger forces.

This conference will focus on four central themes: 1) philosophies and
theories of design, 2) foundations and methods of design research, 3) form
and structure for the doctorate in design, 4) the relationship between
practice and research in design.

A distinguished international group will meet at Doctoral Education in
Design to consider these issues. Participants will present findings, debate
ideas, and propose benchmarks for the future development of the PhD in
design. Participants will interact and confer in each session and in
breakout workshops. This conference will encourage significant working
relationships among participants, leading to research alliances and
partnership agreements among schools.

A careful refereeing process will select papers. The number of participants
will be limited to ensure a high quality international audience positioned
to make decisions on the future of doctoral education in design within
their universities. We also believe that such an audience will be able to
generate a broad dialogue useful to the wider field. Selected papers will
be published in a conference book.


Conference sessions:

Session 1. Philosophies and theories of design. The character and
epistemology of a field define its parameters. Exploring these issues will
be a central issue of the next decade for doctoral education in design and
for design research. We must articulate a philosophy of design that
considers the general principles under which the phenomena of design are
comprehended, explained, and structured. Session 1 will address the central
challenges in the philosophy of science and theory development for the
field of design.

Session 2. Foundations and methods of design research. There is no single
set of research methods for design research. A rich diversity of methods
has been developed for the field of design and adapted from other fields
with new methods under development. We have begun to examine the
foundations of these methods for suitability and rigor. The simultaneous
location of design research within natural science, social science,
technology and the humanities poses unique challenges to the issue of
method. Session 2 will examine these issues and highlight areas of strength
and weakness in current method and directions for fruitful application..

Session 3. Form and structure for the doctorate in design. A doctorate in
design may be awarded in several subject disciplines and involve a range of
doctoral traditions. Despite differences, there seems to be a common form
to the PhD project based on a written thesis with an oral defense. While
many issues in design research and doctoral traditions vary from field to
field, there is strong consensus on issues of form and structure. Session 3
will attempt to develop an international consensus statement on appropriate
forms of PhD study that will be useful at the local level while helping to
develop the field across national boundaries. The session will also attempt
to establish international guidelines helpful to directors of doctoral
programmes and doctoral supervisors. Finally, the session will consider
issues of program and department structure appropriate to the integrative
and interdisciplinary nature of doctoral programs in design.

Session 4. The relationship between practice and research in design. Design
integrates several fields with different research traditions and competing
methodological claims. The relationship between theory and practice poses a
challenging problem for doctoral education in design. Design disciplines
such as engineering or computer systems have well established doctoral
traditions. Others, such as industrial design or information design, have
hardly begun. The relationship between practice and theory is a challenge
in established fields and new areas. This gives rise to debate on what is
called "practice-based research." Session 4 will address the general issue
of the relationship between practice and theory and the specific issue of
"practice-based research."


To propose a paper:

The organizing committee invites proposals for consideration under the four
conference themes. Proposals should include the names of all authors
together with institutional affiliations. Please indicate the name of the
presenting author. Please give a working title; conference theme; summary
of the presentation; and state how the issues in the proposal affect
conference themes.

Proposals should be one A4 page for refereeing. Brief biographies of the
authors may be added on a second page. Proposals by email only, to:

<[log in to unmask]>


Deadlines:

18 February 2000: Deadline for proposals.
18 March 2000: Authors notified.
9 June 2000: Final papers due.

On acceptance, authors will be invited to expand proposals for publication
in the conference proceedings. Proceedings will be available at the
conference. Following the conference, selected authors will be invited to
revise papers into book chapters for publication by a major publisher.


Arrangements:

Our four-star hotel charges 650 French francs per day including gourmet
meals and all wine at the meals. If two people share a room, the second
person in the room pays only 330 francs per day. La Clusaz is a beautiful
resort village in the French Alps with choice location and close proximity
to Geneva Airport.

The working language of the conference is English.
