|[Nettime-nl] Design Research in the Netherlands 2005|
19-20 May 2005: Design Research in the Netherlands 2005 Symposium Following the Design Research in the Netherlands symposia held in 1995 and 2000, we are happy to announce the third Design Research in the Netherlands. Design Research in the Netherlands occurs every five years to take stock of the state-of-the-art in design research that takes place in all design disciplines in the Netherlands: architecture, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, industrial design, fashion design, graphics design, computer software, education, psychology, business management, and so forth. Key questions that the field of design research aims to investigate are: - What is the nature of design and design problems? - How can we consistently and methodically describe design processes, products, teams, individuals, and so forth? - How can we cognitively model design thinking of individuals and teams? - How can our research findings be implemented in new design support methods, tools, and instruments? - What is our theoretical and methodological framework of design? - How does our design research connect to design practice? Within these key questions, we are interested to know what research and development methodologies you have used to acquire insight in design. What have you achieved and what are your expectations for the coming period? If you are active in the Netherlands, we invite you as researcher or research group to outline your development over the past five years in position papers in which you address insights, methods, results, and problems. Design Research in the Netherlands 2005 is the third instalment, following two symposia held in 1995 and 2000. In this manner, the symposium already spans well over a decade of design research activities. The five-year cycle allows us to take conceptual distance from everyday problems that are often project-specific, and to assess how design research is evolving. In the past five years new research programmes have started, projects have come to a close, novel technologies and methods have been introduced, and there are also the organisational dynamics of research groups in their institutions. Keynote addresses at the conference will be delivered by Bryan Lawson from Sheffield University and Scott Chase from Strathclyde University, Glasgow.
