II INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DESIGN HISTORY: "THE EMERGENCE OF REGIONAL
HISTORIES"
HAVANA, 7, 8 and 9 JUNE 2000.


CALL FOR PAPERS
In accordance with the motions adopted at the first International
Conference held in Barcelona last April, the second conference will be
organized in June 2000 in Havana. This venue was proposed together with two
other cities, Milan and Mexico. During the summer and autumn, our
colleagues in Havana worked extremely hard to prepare the conference, and
we are pleased to confirm that the meeting will be held in Havana in June
this year. Many participants at the Barcelona Conference expressed their
desire that the meetings should continue and that the links forged last
year should be strengthened. We hope that next year's meeting will be held
in Mexico, or in Milan, or even in Barcelona, and that in future years it
will be possible to alternate between Europe and America. 

This year's Conference will take place during the Meeting of Design and
Designers, the VI Encuentro de Diseño, to be held in the same building in
Havana. This parallel meeting will be an extra attraction for those
interested in meeting designers and discussing current concerns. 

ACTIVITIES: The aim of the second Conference is to build on the foundations
established at the first: to provide a forum for theory-centred research
presentations for scholars and researchers already working at design
schools and design research centres. A year ago we were particularly keen
to meet colleagues in that field, and now we hope to expand the
communication network that came into being at the Barcelona conference. The
need to set up a forum to exchange experiences and to stimulate cooperation
is as great as ever.

Two special activities are planned for the closing session of the second
Conference: first, the presentation of the proceedings of the Barcelona
Conference, and second, the announcement of the number of signatures
collected in support of the UNESCO request for a design code, and
discussion of how and when to submit the document to the UNESCO
authorities. During this last year, many statements of support have been
received in Barcelona. We hope to add to our list of signatures in Havana.

 THE EMERGENCE OF REGIONAL HISTORIES: Today, design history has to face
many methodological and theoretical problems, most of which have never been
addressed before, due above all to the inevitable differences in approach
in different countries and cultures. Moreover, design history itself has to
respond to new questions regarding the acknowledgement of its own aims and
methods of study. Such a general questions could be shared among
researchers of the different local histories.
In the other hand, the theme of the second Conference is closely linked to
that of the first. At the Barcelona Conference it was suggested that the
conception of design history may vary when seen from the perspective of the
mainstream, the universal history, or when seen from peripheral areas such
as southern Europe or Latin America. The high points of the development of
design in the latter areas are known, but its history is rarely understood
as a continuous flow of events in which these high points take on meaning.
It is the aim of this conference to supplant the narrow approach to the
idea of identity, and in order to avoid simplistic debates on identity and
globalization, we feel that regional histories and realities should be
discussed through working groups dealing with the different aspects of the
question, set up in accordance with the professional activities of
historians and researchers involved. There will also be new working groups
of a different kind, devoted to discussing particular issues which may well
provide valuable suggestions as to the subjects to be addressed at the 3rd
Conference.


WORKING GROUPS: 
1) HISTORIC TRENDS: Historical trends, methodological approaches and
theoretical points of view that are key to the construction of regional
histories. Research works which try to find links between different regions
concerning global/local questions.  
2) DESIGN STUDIES: Methodological questions related to research as well as
approaches from other disciplines (of a more theoretical nature than
history) that take design as their main subject for study.
3) ART, ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN IN 20th CENTURY HISTORY. The connections
between art and design have been a major topic for designers and scholars
for many years. In theory these connections seem clear enough, but the
problematic relationships of the two areas throughout the twentieth century
have never been studied on their own.
4) TEACHING DESIGN: LOCAL REFERENCES/GLOBAL REFERENCES IN TEACHING
PLANNING: How global references have influenced local teaching design
systems in different countries. The history of teaching design and its
methods.
5) DESIGN MUSEUMS; COLLECTIONS AND EXHIBITIONS: Producing catalogues and
ways of documenting exhibits.
6) THE DESIGN/TECHNOLOGY DIALOGUE AND ITS HISTORICAL TREATMENT: How to
introduce the history of technology as a specific item of design.
7) RESEARCH: Area for displaying papers and posters related to particular
areas of Design history.

The old working group on research and business has now been integrated into
other groups, as its concerns are of interest to all of us.

************************************************************
Sixth Meeting on Design - VI Encuentro de Diseño
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oficina Nacional de Diseño Industrial (ONDI) 
47 No. 3446 esq. 41, Rpto. Kohly, Playa, 
Ciudad de La Habana 11300, Cuba.
Phone.(537) 23 0797  Fax: (537) 23 0798.


For establishing a meeting point where to exchange ideas, to analyze the
times passed and to find the sense for real progress, the National Office
for Industrial Design (ONDI) calls together all friends, professionals and
students all around the world, to take part in the Sixth Meeting on Design.
 To accomplish this, we have chosen the seventh, eighth and ninth of June,
2000, at the Conventions Center.  On this occasion, we will go deep into
the place and duties of Design on three main topics: Teaching of Design;
History, Studies and Theory of Design; New Information and Communication
Technologies.  And some more specific ones like Technological Innovation
and Twenty Years of the National Office for Industrial Design (ONDI) as the
Manager of Design in Cuba. 
This time, our event will be sponsored by the Latin-American Association of
Design (ALADI), its National Committee in Cuba, the Ministry of Light
Industry (MINIL) and the Ministry of Economy and Planning. Parallel to this
event and in the same center, it will be held the Second Meeting of
Historians of Design.
The beginning of the third millenium will be the appropriate space to talk
about the history and projection of Design; the environment and the man for
whom we design.  Such topics raise different criteria and positions.  We do
invite you to take part in this analysis by presenting deep reflections and
specific conclusions.

Papers
Abstracts in no more than 250 words must be delivered before April 30th,
2000.  The following data must also be included: topic, title, author(s),
institution and country.   The author(s) must submit the paper(s), on
magnetic disks if possible, on the accreditation to the Meeting.  The
official languages are Spanish and English.  A commission, after analyzing
the abstracts, will select those papers to be presented in the event, on
the basis of their professional value and their correspondence to the
suggested topics.  The results of such analysis will be given as soon as
possible.

Masterly Lectures
Outstanding international characters in the world of Design have been
invited to deliver lectures on the Meeting.  We already have confirmations
of great importance such as those from: Mr. Augusto Morelo, President of
ICSID, International Council of Societies of Industrial Design; Gui
Bonsiepe, Designer and Professor from the University of Colonia, Germany;
Professor PhD. Oscar Salina and Anna Calvera, Full Professor of the
Department of Design and Image from the University of Barcelona

Special Participants
Some important officials from the Ministries of Culture and of Economy of
Cuba will present some questions related with the position of the country
in relation to Design and the general topics of the event, leaving time for
exchange in open debates.

Exhibits
The Organizing Committee has reserved an area for exhibits where
participants (whether individuals or firms) can present their products,
provided such enterprises supply means for design, produce communications
design and industrial design, or have high-quality design products.



Second Meeting of Historians of Design
At the time of the Sixth Meeting, the Second Meeting of Historians of
Design will be held.  Like its first edition (Barcelona, 1999), its purpose
is to promote the professional recognition of the history of design. 
Following the general topic of ¨Emergence of the regional stories of
design¨ there will be four working groups: Historiography and Theory of
Design; Research; Museology and Documentation; Teaching; The role of
technology in the history of design; The relationship between Design, Fine
Arts and Architecture throughout this century.  This meeting is sponsored
by the History of Design Scientific Committee of Barcelona´99. For more
information contact the Web site www.standbynet.org.  Abstracts must be
sent to the Organizing Committee before April 30th, 2000.  You should be
specific on your participation in this event.

Courses
The Higher Institute of Industrial Design (ISDI) will offer
courses-workshops on June the fifth and sixth on the specialties of
Industrial Design and Communications Design.  The main topics to be covered
are: Design Management; Cognitive Ergonomics; Visual Forms Discourse; The
Eighth Column of Design (Physics) and Visual Communications.  Those
interested can register and pay for the chosen course during the event,
directly to ISDI.  The registration fee will be of $110.00 US, independent
of that for the event.

Collateral Program
For having a more pleasant stay in Cuba, the Organizing Committee is
preparing a group of interesting socio-cultural activities, namely: a show
of the most advanced and representative Cuban fashion designs, a visit to
the Scale Model of the City and to the EXPOCUBA Exhibitions Complex.

Registration
If you are interested in participating on the Sixth Meeting on Design, you
should send the following data to the Organizing Committee: full name,
institution, specialty, occupation and whether you are to participate as
presenter or observer.  As for presenters, you should indicate the topic
and the title of the paper.  If you are also interested in taking any of
the courses, you should indicate your address, country, Fax, E-mail and
