The Impact of Technology on Design Research
IIT Institute of Design, Chicago
Oct. 24–26, 2011

Good morning,

We would like to sweeten your day with the last chance for our early
bird special to register for the Design Research Conference:
Registration[1] will close tonight, and tomorrow will bring the regular
prices. Talk to your colleagues and friends about saving up to 40% on
your conference ticket.

As a quick reminder: This year’s DRCx[2] (IIT Institute of Design's 10th
Design Research Conference) will take place in Chicago between October
24th – 26th, 2011. DRCx[3] will focus on the effects of emerging
technology on industry practices and the changing role of design
research in the corporate world. The conference will be packed with
dense multifaceted talks about user research and user data, including
new ways to gather, process, analyze and present. You will see the
contrast of traditional and cutting edge approaches used in fieldwork
today, hear about distinct methods, and dive right into a few case
studies to explore and share some of the current developments in the
field. You can expect to meet industry thought leaders, practitioners
from the corporate and consultancy realm, and executives interested in
the world of design research.

The two days of the main program[4] will cover:

- Big picture: The cultural effects of technology on current practice

- Data gathering: New methods for conducting research and the
utilization of open source data

- Data processing: Qualitative and quantitative research: the role of
design research methods in the age of analytics

- Hand-off: Packaging data to extend its lifespan and the effects of
research on corporate culture

On Monday afternoon the conference will program start with a set of
exciting workshops[5] to immerse yourself in one of the conference
topics. Pick your favorite one tap into first-hand knowledge from your
workshop facilitator before our speakers capture your attention and the
conference buzz starts up.

We have structured our speaker line-up in a way to ensure that each
session will provide you with some high-level food for thought and some
hands-on practical take-aways for your everyday needs. In addition we
tried to pick a handful of views from outside the industry to foster new
ways of looking at developments within the industry.

The roster for DRCx includes speakers[6] such as:

Luis Arnal | in/situm

Genevieve Bell | Intel

Nate Bolt | Bolt/Peters

Todd Cherkasky | Sapient USA

Ron Halverson | Halverson Group

Bryan Williams | IDEO

John Tolva | City of Chicago
