In a bit more than a week, we will start the 8th International Conference on Design & Emotion, at Central Saint Martin’s in London, UK. In the course of the past months the tension and excitement has mounted up to the level that we can’t stand waiting another minute for it to kick off.
The conference proceedings will include over 110 papers, posters and case studies, 7 keynote speakers, exhibitions, perfumery installations by International Flavors and Fragrances and a soon to be released supercar from McLaren Automotive. Full programme can be downloaded here.
Two more reasons to join us:
1. Six diverse and exciting workshops on Sept. 11
While Design & Emotion is the overarching focus of the conference (allowing us to consider all aspects of the relationship between human experience and design understood in its widest senses) the theme this year is “Out of Control”. This year’s large collection of workshops you can choose from is definitely out of control, with topics ranging from logic, social dilemmas and cooperative behaviour, to well-being in healthcare, changing food related behaviour, and a touch of relationship counceling, digital love, empathy & conflict resolutions, to even death and loss. Can it be more diverse and interesting? We didn’t think so either
