What are you looking for?

DRS2022 invites new paper submissions in an open call or theme track. We embrace research looking at and using design in the widest possible sense, with interdisciplinary work particularly encouraged.

Join us at the Guggenheim in Bilbao for DRS2022, a hybrid conference with unique participation opportunities and a showcase for the best in design research. Whatever your orientation to design research we encourage you to participate, to show the true diversity and potential of our discipline. We are living through extraordinary times where design in many forms is necessary to counter the enormous problems we face in the challenges of our coexistence.

How has the discipline of design research responded? Can design and design research bring the insights and methods needed for transformation and collaboration?

Submission is for full papers only up to 5000 words, including abstracts and references, and should adhere to the conference paper submission guidelines, available in August on the conference website. All submissions must be in the English language.

Authors of accepted papers are required to register and present their work at the conference, either physically or virtually according to the hybrid nature of the event. All accepted papers will be published in the DRS Digital Library and available to view approximately one month before the beginning of the conference.

Deadline for full papers: 24 November 2021
Notification of accepted papers: February 2022
Conference Dates: 25th June – 3rd July 2022
