Deadline for abstracts - Mon 5 Jan 2015
Design 4 Health 2015 provides an opportunity to reflect on how the disciplines of design and health might develop new ways of thinking and working, and how we might impact positively and sustainably on the social, economic and cultural factors within our communities and beyond. We invite papers from researchers and practitioners across the areas of design and health in order to develop new dialogues and offer different perspectives.
The Call for Papers with full details of the conference themes is attached but they are summarised briefly here:
Design4Health2015: Synergies of Practice
Design encompasses a wide range of methodologies of practice and of research. Papers exploring the synergies of design and health methods are encouraged.
Design has strengths around envisaging both problems and solutions to help all stakeholders explore the world of health in new and exciting ways. Papers exploring innovative methods and case studies are encouraged.
