2008 Undisciplined! Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, UK

The fourth conference in our current series is an important opportunity to take stock. We will be using it to reflect on and develop the way we run these events as well as aiming to provide an important oversight of the state of the art in research across the designing disciplines. We promise to pay equal attention to the quality of content and the quality of your experience at the conference.
The conference theme, attending to the new kinds of designing that are emerging to challenge our framework of specialisms and reshape our field, will provide some focus for keynote speakers and debates and you may find that relevant to your own work. However this is the main conference for the whole of our society and we are open to all research that informs or arises from designing.
Conference Theme
Undisciplined! - Rigour in emerging design disciplines and professions
