International Summer School 
Models of Creative Design for Innovation in Science and Technology 
Aveiro University, Portugal 
September 19-25, 2010


“Models of Creative Design” 2010 is a summer school proposed by the DESIRE
Marie Curie Initial Training Network: “Creative Design for Innovation in
Science and Technology”. DESIRE aims to establish an interdisciplinary
network of researchers investigating creative design in various applied
domains, including interaction design, industrial design, and arts design.


The 2010 summer school will build on grounding creativity theory, analysis
and modelling creative processes in design and innovation. Industrial,
artistic, and collaborative design will be explored from the perspective of
the user, the cognitive scientist, the software engineer, and the
interaction scholars as well as the designer. Several aspects of creative
design, such as: design cognition models; design processing; computer
supported collaborative design, creative digital interaction and qualitative
analysis; will be examined.


The summer school is addressed to young researchers, PhD students, or
professionals in the fields of Human Computer Interaction, Interaction
design, Experience design and Industrial design.


The school is intensive and residential. It consists of a cycle of lectures,
assisted learning and training. The official language is English and all
teaching activities and materials will be in English.



The school will be open to 28 highly qualified, motivated students, 13 from
the DESIRE project and 15 from outside. PhD students, young researchers or
industrial professionals in the field are encouraged to apply. The
applications will be evaluated as soon as they are submitted on the basis of
their application date and the applicants’ curricula vitae (two-page résumé
including reasons for participating in the school). The school is partially
funded by the DESIRE network.


Application Deadline: 3 May 2010
