We invite you to participate in the third Nordic Design Research
Conference, NORDES’09: Engaging Artefacts taking place in Oslo,
Norway, from 30 August to 1 September 2009.  The conference is hosted
by The Oslo School of Architecture and Design in collaboration with
The University of Oslo.

We offer an interesting program over two and a half days. The keynote
speakers are Lizbeth Goodman (SMARTlab, London), Mark Cameron Burry
(SIAL at RMIT, Australia) and Lavrans Løvlie (LiveWork, Oslo/London).
The programme includes paper presentations of 20 research papers and
13 exploratory papers, six workshops and one tutorial, five design
cases and an exhibition of 13 artefacts and one performance, in
addition to a doctoral consortium. We expect lively social gatherings
and promise a reception at Oslo's New Opera and a conference dinner at
Ekebergrestauranten, both very beautiful buildings with a spectacular
view of The Oslo Fjord.

Design research aims to provide new insights to the ways in which we
understand – and do – design. The scope of the conference reaches
beyond traditional design disciplines and includes other research
areas with mutual interest in design research and engaging artefacts.

Some of these themes are:
• Consumption: we invite critical perspectives on the increasing number   
                   and diversity of artefacts and their creative design
but also use and abuse
in a global economy
• Production: diverse views on the complexity, interrelations and
consequences of production
• Technology: new forms given by new materials – and new materials
developed to enable new forms
• Interactivity: performance and system oriented thinking regarding the
interaction between artefacts, material systems, environments and users
• Politics: the role of artefacts in shaping alternative futures
especially               addressing accessibility, sustainability, poverty
and democracy

The bi-annual Nordes Conferences provide a meeting point for the
Nordic Design Research network. The network  also arranges the Nordes
Summer schools and other Nordes activities. Nordes promotes the
dissemination of design research through the Nordes Digital Archive.
The Nordes board includes design researchers from all Nordic
countries, elected at each Nordes conference.

Early bird registration ends 1. August.
