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.

The workshops should emerge as interactive platforms where participation through collaboration is key to framing the activities and outcomes of the sessions. We welcome creative, co-creative and imaginative formats for facilitating the interactions between participants. The proposals should come from both diverse actors in private and public sectors, and attract a wide audience to question how to manage design and innovation and focus on how design, management and research intersect in today’s changing landscape.

We invite, both researchers and practitioners, to facilitate workshops. The workshops are an opportunity to explore new and emerging research topics, facilitate debates, gather data and test on-going research. Practitioners can benefit from opportunities to showcase their work, seed projects in collaboration with design researchers, and/or gather insights on their relevant issues.

The DMA conference 2017 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.

Workshops will run in parallel to the paper sessions throughout the full 3 days of the conference (7–9 June) and each workshop block will be 90 minutes.
