The Design Research Society’s next conference is set for 25-28 June 2018 in Limerick, Ireland. The call for Workshops and/or Conversations closes 15 February 2018. There is an inclusive design track: Designing for Diversity; Inclusive Design as a catalyst for change? The conference seeks to go beyond disability, ageing and physical accessibility to include fields that have not previously received much attention, for example, neurodiversity, mental health, and obesity.
The conference home page says “Design shapes are daily lives, influencing how we interact with each other and with our environment. When at its best, design is a powerful catalyst for change. DRS2018 Limerick, invites designers to explore these relationships across an exciting four day conference from 25th-28th June 2018”.
