AIEDAM Call for Papers
Special Issue on Fablabs, Makerspaces and Design Spaces
Submissions are invited for a special issue of AIEDAM devoted to papers concerned with design workspaces, and their role as drivers for creative and innovative behaviour and outputs. Design activities may be highly influenced by the environments in which they take place, and by the equipment provided in those environments, where the spaces may be both physical and virtual. The space can be influential because it provides the right ambiance, or it facilitates experimentation, communication and shared working. It may be important in the ideas it stimulates or because it provides a location for reflection and contemplation. The topic has been of particular interest for many years in design education, but increasingly it is seen as important in industrial and research contexts. This special issue seeks original research studies of design workspaces in operation, and of the design of experimental spaces and facilities.
Submission deadline for full papers is 1 May 2018. Please see here for further details.
