IASDR new website

Publish date: 25 June 2018

Over the past few months, the IASDR board has considered the design of a new website. The intention is to offer member societies a more up to date site with better internal editing facilities and room for future growth. We are now able to announce that the first iteration of the new site is online, and we will be adding further content and facilities over the coming months. Further announcements will be made as facilities become available.

As a significant part of this fresh approach, we also took the difficult decision to relinquish the old domain name in favour of the new website link iasdr.net to better reflect the nature of IASDR in networking between member societies and in networking globally for the benefit of the design research community in general. 

Please disseminate this information as widely as possible.

IASDR 2021

Publish date: 25 June 2018

An announcement will shortly be made here about the bidding process for hosting the IASDR2021 Congress.  The biennial IASDR Congress is the most important shared event for member societies to disseminate the research of their members. Therefore the conference covers a wide a range of topics in line with member societies’ interests. Congresses are held every two years, in the ‘odd-numbered’ years – i.e. 2015, 2017, etc., and usually in the second half of the year (autumn/fall in the northern hemisphere). Proceedings are made available online after the event to gold open access standard. A full prospectus will be made available to prospective bidders together with means of application.
