Thirteenth International Conference on Design Principles & Practices
The Thirteenth International Conference on Design Principles & Practices features research addressing the following annual themes:
- THEME 1: DESIGN EDUCATION
- THEME 2: DESIGN IN SOCIETY
- THEME 3: DESIGNED OBJECTS
- THEME 4: VISUAL DESIGN
- THEME 5: DESIGN MANAGEMENT AND PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
- THEME 6: ARCHITECTONIC, SPATIAL, AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN
- 2019 Special Focus: Design + Context
This conference is a place to explore the meaning and purpose of ‘design’, as well as speaking in grounded ways about the task of design and the use of designed artifacts and processes. The conference is a cross- disciplinary forum which brings together researchers, teachers and practitioners to discuss the nature and future of design. The resulting conversations weave between the theoretical and the empirical, research and application, market pragmatics and social idealism.

Sixth Disability Studies Conference
The Institute for Disability and Social Participation (IDaSP), the Disability Studies Doctoral Workshop of ELTE Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Special Needs Education and the Disability Studies Section of the Hungarian Sociological Association will hold the Sixth Disability Studies Conference 13 November 2018 under the title
“DIVERSITY AS A SOCIAL VALUE?”
Despite its fashionable over-use, diversity is still a significant concept. While being the topic of long-standing professional discussions, disagreements and misinterpretations, it invites participants to formulate a number of questions on various forms of Otherness, the potential processes of separation/segregation and their consequences. While examining aspects of diversity-preservation, the conference also wishes to offer a common platform for interdisciplinary dialogue on issues of diversity, normality and disability.

The vision for the future of work will be that artists and designers will be integrated in the design process, asking unexpected questions as members of interdisciplinary teams, and further fostering innovation. Too, artistic research will investigate the fields of science with their unique approaches. Divergent thinking will synchronize fragmented work. The objective of this article is to analyze the value of knowledge-sharing among interdisciplinary and international teams —17 students of social design and teacher education from Austria, and design students from Hungary—in order to collaborate with inclusive schools and co-design in interdisciplinary and international teams by developing individualized design tools for children with special needs. The methods used were “research through design (artefact and research), practice-based” and “design thinking.” In August 2014 the European Commission introduced the notion “education that suits.” Since then, all schools have a duty of care: they are responsible for placing every child, including those with special educational needs, in a suitable educational setting, preferably in mainstream education. “Inclusion” here differs from “social inclusion,” which connotes children with diverse migrant and social backgrounds, as opposed to children with (multiple) handicaps. This strategy requires changes in education within the art and design subjects and societal changes of engagement in general according to Victor Papaneks, in his “Desire of a Soc(iet)al Turn” (in “Design for the Real World, Human Ecology and Social Change: Design of Teaching and Learning Media for People with Disabilities”). This paper explores the engagement with children with multiple disabilities and designing things for them in order to develop empathic and inter/transdisciplinary skills. The paper explores a practice-based approach in design and responds to the criticism of Friedmann (2008) in the form of researching the practice of students by observation, self-reflection, documentation and interviews.

Fifth Disability Studies Conference
what does it mean to be human in the 21st century?”
Fifth disability studies conference
We all experience the rapid development of biotechnology, but neither the bioethical nor the Disability Studies related questions of this issue are part of the scientific discourse. Does a technology driven society promote the release of persons with disabilities from the normative framework? Is it true that in the public mind, non-normal, radically different bodies cause anxiety, body curing and enhancing ambitions? The question of sexuality and disabilities is also part of the discussion. We examine the topics discussed above from an interdisciplinary, theoretical, practical and artistic point of view, based on scientific research, developments or personal narratives.
