Porto, 19+20 October, 2015

Call for short papers

Important dates:
• Submission Deadline: 28 June 2015.
• Authors Registration Deadline: 30 September 2015.
• FORUM: 19+20 OCTOBER 2015.

The UD15 Executive Committee invites you to take part in the 4th PhD in Design Research Forum in Porto, Portugal, and share the present call with those interested.

UD is an annual, peer-reviewed conference series organised by the PhD in Design Programs of University of Porto and University of Aveiro since 2012. Our aim is to enable as much relevant reciprocal feedback as possible for PhD research in progress.

This year, UD stands for Under Development: doctoral research in Design currently in progress. The motto of UD15 is Periphery and Promise. We welcome papers and projects that are Under Development from PhD candidates in and around Design field. Our definition of Design is open to be broadened, challenged and bridged with kindred practices and research disciplines. Regardless of scientific field, we invite contributions from anyone whose research is relevant to design.

The contributions are thematically framed – but not limited – within the following five streams:
• Disciplinarity
• Contextuality
• Collectivity
• Creativity
• Perplexity

We therefore invite you to submit a short paper of your own PhD research or a specific contextual/methodological approach to it. Every article, selected or not, will receive advice from the Scientific Committee.

Please find all detailed info on the research streams and the short paper guidelines at the conference website: http://www.ud15.org/ and write us to ud15.org@gmail.com if you have further questions.

We look forward to meeting you in October in Porto!

The UD15 Executive Committee
