Launched in 1999, the IDEA JOURNAL is an international refereed journal dedicated to the publication of interior design/interior architecture research and as such provides a valuable resource to the discipline and associated design and theoretical fields.

The IDEA JOURNAL is central to IDEA\'s objective to foster, publish and disseminate peer reviewed interior design/interior architecture research. The journal recognises and promotes interior design/interior architecture as a research activity relevant to its field where the definition of research includes research about design, research for design as well as research through design. To this end, the IDEA JOURNAL invites a range of contributions related to interior design/interior architecture

Expressions of interest are to be received by Monday 1st April 2013.

The expression of interest should articulate a proposed call for papers for the IDEA JOURNAL 2014 and include a CV detailing editorial and publication experience.

Call for \'Bridging Books\' Workshop at IDC 2013 NY // Printed Media as a Support for Digital Experiences

We are organizing a workshop at IDC 2013 - Interaction Design and Children 2013 ( This workshop intends to bring together a community of researchers, publishers and authors to reflect and discuss topics such as the state of research on mixed media books, the impact of those projects on society as well as to revisit and update a successful workshop that took
place in 2011: Beyond the binding (

In this workshop we propose to focus on thediscussion about what can be done to bring these ideas out of the lab and to the general public.

- your work is closely linked to book edition and you have an interest in exploring mixed-media projects;

- you want to preview and discuss possibilities for practical applications of these projects;

- you intend to belong to a community focused in the children\'s mixed-media book theme;

- you want to discuss community activities: a future meeting and eventually a publication on these topics.

We welcome position papers on all topics from the domain of mixed media (paper and digital and/or electronic books) especially mixed-media children\'s books. Additionally participants may submit a video (no longer than 3 min.) showing their work.

We encourage participants to bring along prototypes and works-in-progress for discussion and inspiration.

Preliminary Call for Participation

16-19 June 2014: DRS 2014 - Design\'s Big Debates, Umea, Sweden

Design Research Society\'s 2014 conference invites you to engage in discussions and debates on the future directions of design and design research. We welcome you to join us in Umea, Sweden, June

We believe there is a shared discourse in design, one that includes all areas of design research, and that is of vital importance for our understanding and development of the foundations of design. This discourse is something we share and cultivate over long periods of time, as it tells stories of past, present and future trajectories of design and its role in society.

With an ever-increasing demand for academic specialization and increasing numbers of highly specialized conferences, there is a bigger need than ever for a venue where the design research
community can address significant challenges that cut across domains and big issues that will influence the way our field, as a whole, develops.

The main purpose of the DRS 2014 conference is to foster and support a shared design discourse. By focusing on key big issues in design, we want to create a forum where the questions that have the potential to change the way we think and do design - its philosophy, theory, practise, methodology, education, profession and history - will be discussed and debated.

To create this platform for discussions and debates we want to open up a wider set of possibilities for engaging and participating. Thus, the DRS 2014 conference will make use of
multiple publication and presentation formats, including both established ones such as \'papers\' and new ones such as \'conversations\', each with its own submission and review process.
Now is the time to begin asking yourself: \'What do you think are the big debates in design?\' What would you like this exciting conversation to be like to really matter to you - and how will you contribute to make that happen?\'

DRS 2014 is hosted by Umea Institute of Design, Umea University, Sweden. The conference week will give you an opportunity to experience the nightless nights and sunny days of the Swedish
Midsummer, and the many cultural events of Umea, Cultural Capital of Europe 2014.

Johan Redstroem, Erik Stolterman and Anna Valtonen (General Chairs),
Carl DiSalvo and Jamer Hunt (Conversations and Debates Chairs)

Preliminary deadlines:
Papers: October 1st, 2013

Am Donnerstag, den 21. März 2013 findet das 8. DesignSupper Frankfurt statt.

Diesmal in der Osteria Delizie – ganz in der Nähe vom Schweizer Platz in der Schweizer Strasse 78. Los geht es wie immer um 19:30 Uhr.

Für alle, die noch nie dabei waren, sich aber fragen, was wir da eigentlich machen: Das DesignSupper Frankfurt ist keine Grossveranstaltung. In der Regel sind wir eine entspannte Runde von sechs bis zwölf Personen, die gemeinsam Essen, Trinken und ganz alltägliches Austauschen. Es gibt weder Kennenlernspielchen noch Werbeunterbrechungen – also keine Angst vor zuviel offiziellem Getöse und einfach mal vorbei kommen!

Die Konzeption des Symposiums geht von der Feststellung aus, dass sich Aufgaben, Strukturen und Optionen von Design ändern in dem Maße, in dem aktuell ökonomische, technologische und soziale Veränderungen mit hohem Druck und hoher Geschwindigkeit in die Gesellschaften hineinwirken. Auf welche Welt treffen wir, basierend auf den aktuellen Entwicklungen, in 10, 20 oder 30 Jahren? Welche Rolle wird Design darin spielen? Wie greifen Digitalisierung und Neuronalisierung in Designprozesse und -­resultate ein? Wie transparent werden Interfaces? Wo wird das Echte sein, wenn Authentizität nur als postdigitale Simulation des Echten existiert? Was heißt es, wenn „Alt“ das neue „Neu“ ist? Welche Dimensionen werden Social und Resistance Design erlangen? Wer kontrolliert Licencing in der Nachfolge von Autorschaft und Originalität?
