10th INTERNATIONAL DESIGN CONFERENCE
A precondition for international competitiveness is the companies’ capacity to develop products at optimum quality, cost and time. Market pressure forces companies to provide products of increased complexity matching individual desires. New customer demands and turbulent world of changes are continuously reshaping the product development process. How this influences engineering design methodologies and tools in practice? How to improve design projects and processes? How to improve the development of products and services? Which competencies, information and communication technologies are needed? What is the impact on the everyday design work? What social and legal issues should be considered? What are the new advances in design theory and research?
These are the key questions the DESIGN 2008 Conference will focus on. The goal of the Conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners who have worked on or thought about engineering and industrial design from a variety of perspectives, disciplines, and fields: engineering, aesthetics, ergonomics, psychology, sociology, and the like. In attempt to answer the above questions participants from all over the world will present the newest research findings and share practical experience from industry.
