27 - 28 Janvier 2020 • 9h-18h • Mines ParisTech

We are pleased to announce that the next design theory workshop will take place in Paris the 27th and 28th of January 2020. 

Scientific content of the workshop:

We welcome contributions in the areas of the design theory SIG: 

  • Design Theory and other disciplines: AI, cognition, engineering sciences, data science, biology, physics...
  • The value of Design Theory for practitioners
  • Design Theory and Education
  • Design Theory and perception theory: reception and critic of design, identity of objects
  • Design theory and the economics of design

More information on the Design Theory Workshop can be found: 





Special sessions

Based on the work done during the 12th workshop, we will have special parallel sessions to discuss the following four topics:

  • Design theory and creation in philosophy and culture
  • Design theory and Artificial Intelligence
  • Design theory and cognition and psychology
  • Design theory and management

Organization of the workshop

Different types of sessions will be held during the first two days (9am-6pm):

  1. Substantial presentations (45mn-1hour) of ongoing research in the research areas of the SIG
  2. Round tables and/or open discussions on new approaches and emerging issues
  3. Parallel workshops will be held to facilitate subgroup meetings on special topics or to discuss new research plans that could benefit from the cooperation of several SIG members and lead to new insights and co-publications

Final program and schedule: SIG Chairmen will compose the final program taking into account suggestions and proposals received from participants. Registration for the workshop is detailed below.

4th SIG Tutorial on Design Theory (29-30-31 jan 2020, Paris, France)

The Design Theory Tutorial goal is to provide relevant, inspiring and actionable knowledge to researchers looking to increase their knowledge and competencies in Design Theory.

Target audience is scholars, especially PhD students and post-doc students, who are interested in research topics related to design theory. The objectives of the session are:

  • To learn some of the foundational models used in design theory and research, their relationship and the historical context within which they were proposed,
  • To develop skills in applying a variety of design methods in various situations for different purposes – including for research,
  • To interact with and learn from specialist researchers in the field to develop and refine their own research questions and to build future collaboration opportunities.

All professors of the tutorial are international researchers from leading labs working on Design Theory (Carnegie Mellon University, Tel Aviv University, Otto-von-Guericke University, ORT Braude College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Pennsylvania State University, James Madison University, MINES ParisTech, etc.)
