On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, I would like to inform you of the:
FOURTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DESIGN PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES
University of Illinois at Chicago
13-15 February 2010
The Design Conference explores the meaning, purpose and future of ‘design’, including design processes and the use of objects produced. The conference is an inclusive forum that welcomes a breadth of perspectives on design from practitioners, teachers and researchers from many professions and academic disciplines. This inclusive approach provides opportunities for conversations that interrogate ossified assumptions and suggest new possibilities informed by a multiplicity of theoretical, pedagogical and practical concerns.
The conference was inaugurated in 2007 at Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus, London, UK. It was held at the University of Miami, USA in 2008, and at the Technical University Berlin, Germany in 2009. We are pleased to hold this year’s conference at the University of Illinois at Chicago, USA.
