We are pleased to announce that REGISTRATION for EKSIG 2009: EXPERIENTIAL
KNOWLEDGE, METHOD and METHODOLOGY is now open.
The conference aims to provide a forum for debate about methodology and methods for
the inclusion and communication of knowledge in research and practice in the creative
disciplines and practice-led disciplines. The need to be more explicit about research
methods, frameworks, and methodologies has arisen from the increasing use of creative
and professional practices as part of the practice of research in recent years. While
research guidelines and regulations have been either generic enough, or were adjusted,
to accommodate the use of some creative and professional practices under certain
conditions, the debate about the nature, aims, validity, evaluation, and necessity of such
research has continued.
With this conference, we wish to bring together people from different fields and
disciplines with different approaches to address these issues. In this respect, we are
delighted about the great response to our conference call with over 70 submissions from
23 countries! The great interest promises to make the conference a truly international
event with challenging multi-vocal debates around the conference themes, and to
facilitate exchange and cross-fertilization between the creative disciplines and other
practice-led disciplines such as education and knowledge management.
