CALL FOR PAPERS
DeSForM 2019 | Beyond Intelligence
11th International Conference on Design and Semantics of Form and Movement
October 9-11, 2019
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston, USA
SCOPE AND BACKGROUND
DeSForM | Beyond Intelligence is dedicated to presenting the latest research in the fields of design and technology.
DeSForM (Design and Semantics of Form and Movement) seeks to present current research into the nature, character and behavior of emerging typologies of connected and intelligent objects within adaptive systems.
In its 11th edition, we challenge design scholars to start thinking beyond designing for and with intelligence embedded into single artifacts, to broaden their focus and start addressing designing for distributed, hyperconnected, and complex intelligent ecosystems, and how their meaning, experience, and ethics can be approached in this new landscape.
Submissions should be focused on one or more of the following themes. In addition to these topics, contributions addressing the general conference interests (i.e. designing meanings, semantics and aesthetics of smart, dynamic and interactive artifacts) are also accepted.
• Experiencing Complexity
• Interacting with New Intelligences
• Societal Impacts + Design Ethics
• Future Roles of Designers
March 1, 2019 : Submission deadline
May 1, 2019: Notification of acceptance
May 31, 2019: Camera-ready version
October 9-11, 2019: Conference at MIT, Boston, MA
We invite authors to submit high-quality, previously unpublished, original contributions that explore one or more conference topics. Submitted papers (both full and short) will be assessed through a double-blind review process and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Contributions can fall into one of the following categories:
== Full papers (Oral presentation)
Full papers should be up to twelve pages (including references) and should present theoretical research, novel frameworks or research-through-design projects addressing the conference topics. Accepted papers will be given a 20-minute presentation slot at the conference.
== Short papers (Demonstration + Poster)
Short papers should be up to six pages (including references). Short papers should describe actual design or art projects, which will be presented through live demos and posters during the conference. Authors of short papers are also encouraged to provide in their papers a link to download media demonstrating their results, whether images, videos, or other media types. All content should be anonymized for double-blind review.
