DMI 2017 Workshop Proposals due on Wednesday 1 March 2017
The DMA conference invites proposals for workshops that will engage and reflect upon the conference theme “Research Perspectives on Creative Intersections”. The aim of the workshops is to create a physical platform to create, knit, and foster collaboration through experimentation at the intersection between research in academia and research undertaken in industry. The workshops will be unique opportunities to explore the roles and responsibilities of design research within both academia and the creative industry, challenging the intersections between the two and crossing disciplinary boundaries.
Please see link below for more details on workshop submission criteria and important dates: http://designmanagementacademy.com/dma2017/call-for-workshops/
We look forward to receiving your workshop proposals!

CALL FOR PAPERS
Design Management Academy 2017 Hong Kong
Research Perspectives on Creative Intersections
Hosted by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Full Papers submission deadline: Monday 30th January 2017
Conference dates: June 7–9, 2017 Hong Kong
The Design Management Academy’s international research conference which will be hosted by the School of Design School at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The DMA International Research Conference is organised under the auspices of the Design Society’s Design Management Special Interest Group (DeMSIG) and Design Research Society’s Design Innovation Management Special Interest Group (DIMSIG) in collaboration with: Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Loughborough University, Tsinghua University, University of Strathclyde and Delft University of Technology.
The theme of the conference is: “Research Perspectives on Creative Intersections”. Design is becoming more strategic, both in the private and in the public sector. There is a wider range of interfacing activities with internal and external clients and collaborators than before and there is also a wider spread of disciplines to productively interact with. New methods and technologies for collaboration and interfacing have come up. China has been the centre of manufacturing for quite some years. Now it has become a leader in the development of internet services and the most important market in the world in many categories. In this new landscape, the roles and responsibilities of designers are changing dramatically, both in Asia and in the rest of the world.
The Design Management Academy invites an international community of scholars to formulate areas of explorations and academic contribution which are outlined by the following 7 meta themes, within the 20 tracks around which the conference is organised:
DESMA Meet-up London
On Friday 16th of September 2016, DESMA invites you to join us in exploring New Formats for Doing and Communicating Research in the Intersections of Design + Management and Academia + Practice.
DESMA started out as an Initial Training Network within the area of Design Management funded by the European Commission’s Marie Curie Actions (FP7) including 13 researchers, 4 universities and 8 companies aiming to rethink the relationship between design and management, academia and practice, in research. You can read more about our work on the DESMA website or view the video DESMA Experiences.
Today, DESMA is an open platform hosted by the Business & Design Lab at HDK, Academy for Design and Crafts at the University of Gothenburg. We seek to continue developing the vibrant community exploring the territory of design + management research within academia + industry enabling knowledge exchange and collaborations across these boundaries.
In collaboration with the Institute for Design Innovation at Loughborough University London we invite this extended network to a DESMA meet-up in London, 16 September 2016, kick-starting the London Design Festival that takes place all over London 17-25 September.
DESMA researchers will share their stories and experiences from the vantage point of their new settings. And of course, in good DESMA spirit, we will have interactive and constructive parts of jointly rethinking the way research can be done and communicated together with pioneers in this field.
Here is a sneak preview of the programme:
Morning: “Vision and trends for the future”
Starting with a framing by Christian Bason from the Danish Design Center the morning is layed out as interactive, constructive session with representatives of new and traditional publishing platforms such as Fjord, Informa, Design Transfer, 21st Century Design and Design Council to trigger a clash of perspectives and hence learnings and potentially new ideas for the future around conducting and publishing research.
Afternoon: “Reactions, stories and discussions”
Inspired by the morning session, Kathryn Best will lead a discussion around challenges that arise when doing and communicating research in the intersection of Design + Management and Academia + Practice combined with stories and insights from the DESMA Research Fellows representing Livework, Designit, Veryday, Aalto University, University of Gothenburg, Volvo, Engine and M4ID.

Design Management Academy 2017 Hong Kong: Academic perspectives on creative intersections
This International Conference is hosted by the School of Design at Hong Kong Polytechnic
Conference dates: June 7–9, 2017 Hong Kong
Conference website: http://designmanagementacademy.com/dma2017/
The Design Management Academy 2017 Hong Kong International Research Conference will be hosted by PolyU Design (the Design School at Hong Kong Polytechnic). The DMA International Research Conference 2017 is organised under the auspices of the Design Society’s Design Management Special Interest Group (DeMSIG) and Design Research Society’s Design Innovation Management Special Interest Group (DIMSIG) in association with DESMA network and in collaboration with: Hong Kong Polytechnic, Loughborough University and Delft University of Technology.
This is a follow up conference to 2012 and 2014 Design Management conferences organised by members of the upcoming DMA 2017 Hong Kong. The general theme of the 2017 research conference is ‘Academic Perspectives on Creative Intersection ’. The dates of the conference are 7–9 June 2017.
If you would like to propose a theme track for the upcoming DMA 2017 Hong Kong international conference please email to email@example.com
The general theme of the conference is Academic Perspectives on Creative Intersections. Design Management could have been in the past about managing a design department in a company. In particular in larger corporations there are large teams of designers. In smaller companies, not only the design team is smaller, there could also be a lot more design servicing through external design consultancies. The embedding of design resources properly in an organisation and providing professional support across a range of design disciplines is not a trivial activity. Nowadays, with design becoming more strategic, there is also a wider range of interfacing activities with internal and external clients and collaborators than before and there is also a wider spread of disciplines to productively interact with. New methods and technologies for collaboration and interfacing have come up. Engaging with the many stakeholders form end-users to those who finance new business activities has become different. The dynamics in the world are changing as well. China which has been the centre of manufacturing, now is leading in the development of internet services and has become the most important market in the world in many categories. In this new landscape, the roles and responsibilities of designers are changing. This poses new questions to design academics. Can the designers continue to be the ones who come up with the creative and visionary ideas? How to manage design and innovation in this new landscape? What are the new and relevant research questions that come up?
