7th International Conference on Design & Emotion, Chicago
October 4-7, 2010
Hosted by IIT Institute of Design and the Design & Emotion Society
The 7th International Conference on Design & Emotion in Chicago, October 4-7, 2010 calls for your participation. This Conference is a forum held every other year where practitioners, researchers and industry leaders meet and exchange knowledge and insights concerning the cross-disciplinary field of design and emotion. The conference calls for your contribution to this exciting international forum of research and practice representing academic, design and business communities.
Full Papers, Short Papers (Posters) and Design Cases
The International Design & Emotion Conference invites practitioners and researchers to submit research papers and design cases. Submissions addressing issues of Design & Emotion are invited from extended communities beyond design studies, such as computer science, HCI, psychology, cognitive science, social science, humanities, engineering, health sciences, marketing and business. Detailed guidelines for proposal authoring are available on the conference website.
Full Papers are expected to contribute widely applicable long-lasting knowledge to the discipline. Accepted papers will be presented in the conference program and published in the proceedings. The paper length is a maximum of 12 pages (approximately 4,000-5,000 words plus figures and tables) in the specified format.
Short Papers (Posters) are expected to describe research that is more appropriate for the interactive poster session. The paper length should be a maximum of 5 pages (approximately 2,000 words plus figures and tables) and an additional page containing a full-page image of the poster in the specified format for the publication in the conference proceedings. The first submission requires a short paper manuscript without the poster page.
Design cases are invited for submission to present design projects that address issues and insights in design and emotion, communicate and discuss your approach to enhance emotional effects. Design case submissions must include a summary description in a maximum of 5 pages (approximately 2,000 words) in the specified format and a maximum of 30 slides illustrating the design, design process and use.
Call for Special Topic Sessions: Topics and Papers
Special Topic Sessions focus on specific emerging areas of research and practical interest concerning Design and Emotion. The deadline for proposals for special topic sessions is February 15, 2010.
Call for workshops
Researchers, educators and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops. Workshops will be held on October 4, 2010 prior to the main program of the conference. The purpose is to provide a platform for presenting and discussing novel ideas and emerging issues in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conference itself. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organizers, but each workshop is expected to include ample time for general discussion.
The deadline for submission of full papers, design cases and workshop proposals is March 15, 2001.
(See the details on the conference website.)
Submission and Review Process
Submission and review processes will be handled by our conference system. All submissions will have a blind review process with at least two reviewers. All submissions accepted in the second review will be asked to submit the final manuscripts in the camera-ready format. The detailed authoring guideline is available at the conference website.
Design & Emotion is the overarching theme of the conference. This year, the conference adds a particular focus on Design & Emotion in emerging societal issues of our lives and living environments.

The Conference Motto: Blatantly Blues
Chicago is the home of the Blues. The Blues expresses the emotional journey of our life experience. Sorrow and joy, desire and apathy, agony and comfort, and love and despair are woven into the colorful sounds of the Blues. Things and events in our life always have multiple meanings and multiple emotional responses and so do the Blues. The 7th International Conference on Design and Emotion calls for rich discourse on a full spectrum of complex emotional experiences and their implications to Design. During the conference, you will also have opportunities for emotional experiences with the Chicago Blues.
