This event is part of the 31st World Design Assembly
As we're setting the stage for the upcoming 2019 WDO Research and Education Forum, which will take place in Hyderabad (India) on 10 October 2019, we're calling for abstracts and poster submissions on Humanizing Design
Humans are complicated beings with increasingly complex problems. As a result, the products, services and systems we design to work, learn, play for today and most certainly for tomorrow, require to think about ourselves and our needs in new and more insightful ways. On 10 October 2019, accepted authors will have a chance to present their findings on the theme of Humanizing Design. The forum will gather more than 400 professionals, academics and industry leaders to explore trends that better prepare young design professionals for new challenges and opportunities. 

Here's your chance to be seen and heard among the global design community! Consult the guidelines below and submit your abstract and/or poster now!
The event takes place in conjunction with the WDO 31st World Design Assembly (11- 12 October 2019) – WDO’s biggest event of the year! 
Accepted abstracts and posters will benefit from visibility during and after the World Design Assembly and will be published by WDO in the forum proceedings.
