7th International Conference on Design & Emotion, Chicago
October 4-7, 2010
Hosted by IIT Institute of Design

The 7th International Conference on Design & Emotion in Chicago, October
4-7, 2010 calls for your participation. This Conference is a forum held every
other year where practitioners, researchers and industry leaders meet and
exchange knowledge and insights concerning the cross-disciplinary field of
design and emotion. The conference calls for your contribution to this exciting
international forum of research and practice representing academic, design and
business communities.

Full Papers, Short Papers (Posters) and Design Cases
D&E Conference invites practitioners and researchers to submit research
papers and design cases. Submissions addressing issues of Design & Emotion
are invited from extended communities beyond design studies, such as computer
science, HCI, psychology, cognitive science, social science, humanities,
engineering, health sciences, marketing and business. Detailed guidelines for proposal
authoring are available on the conference website.

Full Papers are expected to contribute widely applicable long-lasting knowledge
to the discipline. Accepted papers will be presented in the conference program
and published in the proceedings. The paper length is a maximum of 12 pages
(approximately 4,000-5,000 words plus figures and tables) in the specified

Short Papers (Posters) are expected to describe research that is more
appropriate for the interactive poster session. The paper length should be a
maximum of 5 pages (approximately 2,000 words plus figures and tables) and an
additional page containing a full-page image of the poster in the specified
format for the publication in the conference proceedings. The first submission
requires a short paper manuscript without the poster page.

Design cases are invited for submission to present design projects that address
issues and insights in design and emotion, communicate and discuss your
approach to enhance emotional effects. Design case submissions must include a
summary description in a maximum of 5 pages (approximately 2,000 words) in the
specified format and a maximum of 30 slides illustrating the design, design
process and use. 

Call for Special Topic Sessions: Topics and Papers 
Special Topic Sessions focus on specific emerging areas of research and
practical interest concerning Design and Emotion. The topic proposal deadline
for special topic sessions is February 15, 2010. The deadline for submission of
full paper and design cases is March 15, 2001. 
(See the detail on the conference website.)

Call for workshops 
Researchers, educators and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for
workshops. Workshops will be held on October 4, 2010 prior to the main program
of the conference. The purpose is to provide a platform for presenting and
discussing novel ideas and emerging issues in a less formal and possibly more
focused way than the conference itself. The format of each workshop is to be
determined by the organizers, but each workshop is expected to include ample
time for general discussion. 

Submission and Review Process
Submission and review processes will be handled by our conference system. All
submissions will have a blind review process with at least two reviewers. All
submissions accepted in the second review will be asked to submit the final
manuscripts in the camera-ready format. The detailed authoring guideline
is  available at the conference website.

Design & Emotion is the overarching theme of the conference. This year, the
conference adds a particular focus on Design & Emotion in emerging societal
issues of our lives and living environments. Another focus is on strategic
roles of Design & Emotion in business. The areas of these foci include

The Conference Motto: Blatantly Blues
Chicago is the home of the Blues. The Blues expresses the emotional journey of
our life experience. Sorrow and joy, desire and apathy, agony and comfort, and
love and despair are woven into the colorful sounds of the Blues. Things and
events in our life always have multiple meanings and multiple emotional
responses and so do the Blues. The 7th International Conference on Design and
Emotion calls for rich discourse on a full spectrum of complex emotional experiences
and their implications to Design. During the conference, you will also have
opportunities for emotional experiences with the Chicago Blues.
