Call for workshop proposals to Nordes 2023

The 10th Nordic Design Research Society (Nordes) conference Hosted by Linköping University, Sweden
11-14 June 2023

Deadlines approaching fast!
**Deadline workshops: 6 Feb 2023
**Deadline Doctoral Consortium contributions: 30 Jan 2023

A blank space – a silence, pause, interstice, gap, in-between, opening, punctuation, negative space – can be deliberately or incidentally devoid of content. A space left blank is as much an invitation to notice the void and the structure that surrounds it, as it is a question as to why and how they are perceived. Such absence can remind us to seek out conscious or unconscious intentions hidden in plain sight. Philosophies and worldviews that acknowledge the importance of ‘absence’, ‘emptiness’ or ‘nothingness’ consider everything to be relational, fluid, dynamic and ‘in-between’, rather than the binary dualism that linger from Cartesian constructs. 
Do we pay these blank spaces enough attention, as integrated parts of design practice and design research?

A blank opening can be an invitation for exploration, or pointing out areas in need of alternative interpretations, knowledge, and ways of being. What resistance is there to clearer sensemaking, obscuring the messy co-existence of multiple views? What are omitted or unnoticed dimensions that are invisible, ambiguous, tacit, or formless, or dismissed as passive, paradoxical, incoherent? How ready and receptive can design be to reconsider values and patterns we follow in our everyday living?

Research conferences are by character such openings, until they are given content by contributing researchers. Looking to the number and seriousness of current and emerging societal and environmental challenges there is a need for allowing many undirected thoughts and research results to communicated and discussed. Nordes 2023 intends to be such a place. A conference shaped by the research results, avenues, strategies and concerns of its community.

To build the conference we invite the following contributions: 
- Full papers 
- Exploratory papers 
- Workshops 
- Doctoral consortium 

All submissions are subject to a pre-review process carried out by the chairs that allow desk-rejects of incomplete, unfitted submissions and ensure coherence between paper and submission category. Full and exploratory papers and workshop proposals will be subject to double-blind peer review where external reviewers don’t know the identity of authors, and authors don’t know the identity of external reviewers. The review process follows a single round of submission, review and notification of review results followed by a process of preparing the manuscript for publication.
Submissions at: 

Accepted full and exploratory papers, and workshop descriptions will be published through the online DRS Digital Library and NORDES digital archive. Publications will be available as open access during and after the conference. Furthermore, a selection of the best full papers will be offered options to appear in an edited volume in the Springer series Design Research Foundations:   

The event is being organised and hosted by Linköping University,
