DRS2018 Limerick, 25th-28th June 2018.

Dear Colleague,

We are delighted to announce the DRS2018 Limerick conference website has
been updated with four new Calls for Papers, Workshops, Conversations, and
PhD by Design. We have also been planning the conference experience so that
venues, events, and most importantly good conversation will provide a truly
memorable conference.

*Call for Papers*

Submissions Open: 5th September 2017

Submission Deadline: 6th November 2017

Designing is increasingly taking place in shifting territorial, economic,
and policy contexts.  We ask what are the ways in which design research can
catalyse progressive change in this emerging world?

DRS2018 invites new and challenging paper submissions from any area or
discipline of design research.  We embrace research looking at and using
design in the widest possible sense with interdisciplinary work and work
responding to the conference themes particularly encouraged.

Full papers can be submitted to an open call or to themed tracks for the
DRS2018 conference. Further details are available on the conference website

*Call for Workshops*

Submissions Open: 5th September 2017

Submission Deadline: 15th February 2017

Workshops are half and full day sessions which provide an opportunity to
learn in a practical and engaged way about the latest tools, methods and
techniques of Design Research, Practice, and Education. They aim to bring
together design researchers and design practitioners in academia, in the
public sector, and in business and industry. Workshops will take place over
the four days of the conference, though most will take place on Monday 25th
June 2018. Further information and Workshop Template is available on the
website <>.

*Call for Conversations*

Submissions Open: 5th September 2017

Submission Deadline: 15th February 2017

Conversations engage a limited number of attendees in open exchange in
arriving at new understandings about a particular topic. Conversations
provide an environment where a constructive dialogue can take place about
issues of importance in Design Research, particularly to promote exchanges
about topics not easily captured by the scholarly paper. Conversations
foster open exchange, by talking, but also by means of play, prototyping,
critique of each other’s work produced on-the-spot, or even activism. Each
Conversation is facilitated by convenors who will produce a concluding
document from their Conversation discussion. Dissemination results will be
featured on the DRS2018 site following the conference. Further information
and Conversations Template is available on the website

*Call for PhD by Design*

Submissions Open: 5th September 2017

Submission Deadline: 15th February 2017

PhD By Design will hold a one-day event at DRS2018 to vocalise, discuss and
work through some of the many issues of conducting a practice-based PhD in
Design. This event will be made up of informal presentations of work as an
opportunity to explore what the future holds for practice-based PhDs. It
will bring together designers undertaking practice-based doctoral research,
as well as supervisors, MRes students, and MPhil students within and
outwith Design Departments. On the day we will produce an Instant Journal
documenting discussions and outcomes and available during the conference.
Further information and PhD by Design Template is available on the website
<>. Information about
past events is available at:

The Design Research Society is a multi-disciplinary learned society for the
design research community worldwide. The DRS was founded in 1966, and since
then has established a record of significant achievements in contributing
to design knowledge. You can visit the DRS website at: http://www.
