Dear list,

Apologies for any cross-posting.  The response to DTRS 2012 has been
excellent thus far.  This is the final call.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------DTRS 2012 FINAL CALL-FOR-PAPERS
------------------------------------------------------------------------

As a very gentle reminder please find below details of the DTRS 2012
call-for-papers, which I am sure will be of interest to you and your
colleagues.  Please feel free to pass this on to anyone that you think
would be interested.

Design Thinking Research Symposium [DTRS 2012]
"Articulating Design Thinking"
18 - 20 April, 2012
School of Design, Northumbria University
 
The Process
Between the 18th and 20th April 2012, the School of Design at
Northumbria University will host the ninth Design Thinking Research
Symposium [DTRS 2012].  The symposium entitled, "Articulating Design
Thinking", will be run along similar (but different) lines to the
workshop-based events that we have seen in past DTRS and related events
such as the "Delft Protocols" in 1994, the DTRS7 event "Analysing Design
Meetings" in London in 2007, and the "Studying Professional Software
Designers" workshop held at the University of California, Irvine in
2010.  At these events, workshop delegates were asked to respond to a
given common set of data (i.e. video recordings and transcripts).

DTRS 2012 at the School of Design, Northumbria University will, however,
make a few changes to the workshop-based format and be run along the 
following lines:

*       Delegates will be given a generic design brief (attached below),
which nevertheless permits a variety of design and other disciplinary
responses.

*       Participants will make their own arrangements for tackling the
brief, and can work either individually or as part of a larger team. The
time you allocate to this activity and the "designed" outcome is
unspecified.

*       Once the design brief has been completed, each invited DTRS 2012
participant is requested to write up the design activity in a academic
paper to be submitted for peer review.
 
*       Participants are responsible for organising their own response
to the design brief, arranging their design team, writing up their
observations, analyses, interpretations and results in their paper.

*       Each submitted paper is then double-blind peer reviewed and
assessed for inclusion in the "Articulating Design Thinking" conference
and planned book.
 
*       DTRS 2012 is particularly keen to include novel and interesting
papers that describe collaborations between industry (i.e. perhaps small
SME-style enterprises, medium size companies or even global players),
design students (i.e. undergraduate or postgraduate), academics and
researchers from design disciplines and other relevant areas, and/or a
combination of all of these.

The Papers
Invited DTRS9 participants should consider concentrating their paper on
topical and relevant design research issues including, but not limited
to, the following:

*       Understanding and articulating the design process; 
*       Design communication; 
*       Design context; 
*       Design expertise;
*       Design thinking;
*       Design behaviour;
*       Disciplinarity issues in design; 
*       Design knowledge;
*       Language in design; 
*       Cross cultural issues in design; 
*       Co-designing; 
*       Socio-cultural issues in design;  
*       and others.

The Brief*
"Modern Age"

How can the design of products, spaces, and services make growing old
seem more attractive and inviting?

11% of the world's 6.9 billion people are over 60.  By the year 2050
that figure will have doubled to 22%.  If we are to support a growing
number of older people we need to produce products, spaces, and services
that allow them to stay healthy and well in and around their own home.
You are asked to design a domestic product, living environment, or
service for older people that surpasses conventional expectations. For
the purpose of illustration only, the following would all be viable
responses to the brief:

*       a piece of furniture or furniture system 
*       a domestic tool, product or appliance
*       an architectural intervention
*       a decorative item or scheme
*       an interior design or living environment
*       an adapted bathroom, kitchen or workshop
*       a new domestic service
*       ...and many others are possible. 

*Brief written by Emily Campbell of the Royal Society for the
encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).

Best,
 
Paul
