DRS 2018 – Call for Workshops

February 8, 2018

Call for Conversations

Conversation is the DRS2018 format for sessions conceived as alternative to the traditional paper/presentation format, with the ambition of  providing innovative venues for project-based research and work that is not easily captured or conveyed by the scholarly paper. A Conversation can be a structured discussion or experimental session format that advances dialogue around emergent forms of design research. The aim of the Conversation format is to engage a limited number of attendees in open exchange in arriving at new understandings about a  topic. Each Conversation is facilitated by convenors who will produce a concluding document from their Conversation discussion. Dissemination results will be featured on the DRS2018 site following the conference. Further information and Conversations Template is available on the website: drs2018limerick.org/participation/conversation-sessions. Any enquiries about Conversations should be directed to: conversations@drs2018limerick.org


Call for PhD by Design

PhD By Design will hold a one-day event at DRS2018 to vocalise, discuss and work through some of the many issues of conducting a practice-based PhD in Design. This event will be made up of informal presentations of work as an opportunity to explore what the future holds for practice-based PhDs. It will bring together designers undertaking practice-based doctoral research, as well as supervisors, MRes students, and MPhil students within and out with Design Departments. On the day we will produce an Instant Journal documenting discussions and outcomes and available during the conference. Further information on PhD by Design Limerick is available on the website. Information about past events is available at: www.phdbydesign.com Any enquiries about PhD by Design should be directed to: team@phdbydesign.com
