We are pleased to invite you to submit proposals for papers or posters to
IASDR2011, the 4th World Conference on Design Research, to be held at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, on October 31–November 4, 2011.
The theme of IASDR11 is DIVERSITY and UNITY.
The conference aims to provide a unique global forum for the presentation and discussion of research into fundamental aspects of design activity and experience across all domains of application, including industrial design, architectural design and planning, different branches of engineering design, software, interaction and media design, etc.
IASDR - The International Association of Societies of Design Research - was established on November 1, 2005. The purpose of the Association is to promote research and study into the activity of design in all its many fields of application, through encouraging collaboration on an international level between independent societies of design research.

Congresses have been organised in Taiwan (2005), Hong Kong (2007) and Seoul (2009).
