OCTOBER 28, 2010

Date: 16 April 2011
Deadline for submission: 24 November 2010

The Center for Material Culture Studies at the University of Delaware
invites submissions for papers to be given at the Ninth Annual Material
Culture Symposium for Emerging Scholars.

Focus: Objects order the social body and mediate cultural interactions. Yet,
at the same time, objects can be deployed against established structures.
Whether designed to effect change or repurposed to undermine normative
practices, objects often revolt against social, cultural, intellectual,
economic and political systems. This conference seeks papers that explore
the creation, use and manipulation of things as they reorder our world.

Deadline for 500 word abstracts: 5 November 2010

The 18th International Product Development Management Conference (IPDMC)
will be held from June 5-7, 2011 at the Delft University of Technology in
the historic town of Delft in The Netherlands. For the first time in the
history of this conference, it will move to a Design School; the Faculty of
Industrial Design Engineering. This faculty is the largest university-based
design school in the world with more than 2,000 students enrolled in the
bachelor degree or in one of the three masters programs that the faculty

The special theme for our conference will be *“Innovate through Design”. *This
means that we welcome papers on the topics of design thinking and design
management along with the more common innovation management and new product
development themes for the IPDM Conference. We plan to hold a special

Making visible the invisible: Data Visualisation in Art, Design and Science
Collaborations (Mar 2011, Huddersfield

conference on interdisciplinary collaboration in data visualisation
University of Huddersfield, UK, March 10th-11th 2011
1st Call for Abstracts, 300 word limit, Submission deadline: December 6th
Website: http://www.hohlwelt.com/en/conferences/visible.html

In recent years numerous visualisations involving scientific data and
scientific themes have emerged from interdisciplinary collaborations between
artists, scientists and designers. Works reach across diverse media, ranging
from applied screen-based applications to experimental physical
installations. While some are intended to inform by making the complex and
abstract clear and visual, others focus on the aesthetic quality of the
experience. What many of the works have in common is being the outcome of
collaboration across disciplines.

This event seeks not only to contribute to the debate around data
visualisation but also to a better understanding of what makes
interdisciplinary collaborations successful. We wish to provide a platform
for open dialogue and discussion across disciplinary cultures and seek a
better understanding of the critical requirements for interdisciplinary
collaboration. We ask what are the most fruitful conditions for
interdisciplinary collaboration? How can trans-disciplinary understanding be
best facilitated?

The International Committee for the History of Technology’s 38th Symposium
in Glasgow, Scotland, 2 – 7 August 2011
Deadline for proposals is 31 January 2011

The 38th ICOHTEC Symposium will be held in Glasgow on 2-7 August 2011. The
main theme of the meeting will be Consumer Choice and Technology. The aim is
to examine the interaction of technology and consumer behaviour in a
historical perspective, with a primary focus on factors steering consumption
and how consumers by their choices have influenced technological
development. The transition from agrarian society to consumer society is one
of the epoch making phases in human history that can be studied from various
aspects and contexts.

How Can Design Research serve Industry?
Design visions, tools and knowledge for industry
Deadline for submission: 30 January 2011

In these days a mantra for companies and institutions seems to be, almost
mandatorily, the need to become design-oriented, in order to increase their
capability to build value, generate innovation and increase market shares as
well as profits. This mantra, more often than not, comes with another one:
design innovation is putting the user at the center of the project. Research
on pleasurable products and interfaces is playing an important role in this
debate elaborating and formalizing new knowledge on people (end users, value
co-producers, etc.) and their needs, expectations, beliefs, values, desires;
and suggesting the possibility to exploit user centered design in sectors
and markets that are not commonly thought as being inherent its field of
research. This has produced a significant amount of knowledge, mainly
through vast experimentation, whereas less has been said on how to integrate
this knowledge in industry. Apparently there is a disconnection between
research on user centered design and pleasurability, and design practices
inside industry, especially in SMEs contexts. Given these premises, it would
be very interesting to investigate how this research can be integrated into
industry, and to discuss it in relation to other approaches to design

The European Architectural History Network (EAHN) is organizing its Second
pan-European meeting in Brussels in 2012. In accordance with the EAHN
mission statement, this meeting proposes to increase the visibility of the
discipline of architectural history, to foster transnational,
interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches to the study of the built
environment, and to facilitate the exchange of research results in the
field. The main purpose of the meeting is to map the general state of
research in disciplines related to the built environment, to promote
discussion of current themes and concerns, and to foster new directions for
research in the field.

Designers are change agents in a society. They are one of the groups that
add value in botheconomic and in human terms. Design research focuses on
understanding designing as a process. Much design research aims to
understand routine designing in order to build tools that aid the designer
primarily by improving their efficiency. As our understanding of routine
designing increases, the topic of creativity in designing attracts
increasing interest as a means of widening the scope of our understanding of
designing and as a basis for the development of tools thataugment the
designer. In order to elucidate the nature of engineering design, issues
related to thecognitive processes underlying design creativity are being
studied as are computational models of design creativity. Research into
designing processes is starting to view designing as a social aswell as a
technical process and that the products of designing involve human and
social dimensions.

The Death and Life of “Social Factors” (Apr 2011,

The Death and Life of “Social Factors”
Reexamining Behavioral and Cultural Research in Environmental Design
College of Environmental Design, University of California, Berkeley
Berkeley, CA, USA
April 29 – May 1, 2011
Deadline for abstract submission: 15 November 2010

Ever since William Whyte observed New Yorkers taking lunch breaks in urban
plazas and Amos Rapoport demonstrated the role of social and cultural
factors in shaping traditional houses, research on the two-way relationship
between people and the environment has been part of the field of
environmental design, including architecture, landscape architecture, and
planning. This interest in the social quality of space has been taken up by
many different researchers, from New Urbanists to sociologists such as
Elizabeth Shove and Simon Guy. Meanwhile, theoretical and methodological
developments in our field, such as Clare Cooper Marcus’s study on Easter
Hill Village or Christopher Alexander’s pattern language, set grounds for
our own and other disciplines, respectively. Throughout the last 40 years,
psychologists, behaviorists, sociologists, anthropologists, and historians,
among others, have contributed to a body of knowledge applicable to design
at many scales through a broad spectrum of methodological and theoretical
