Track Title: Sketching in Design Practice, Education & Research

The 21st International Conference on Engineering and Product Design Education will be hosted by the Department of Design, Manufacturing and Engineering Management. University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom.

What are Visual Papers?

Visual papers are papers in which the visual components are essential in communicating the primary information while the text plays a supporting role. Visual papers do not show design work only. Whatever is reported in a visual paper, it must have a research interest in the Engineering and Product Design Education (E&PDE) community. Visual papers are meant to contribute to new knowledge rather than document concepts, methods, and processes we already know.


In visual papers, production values and visual quality matters. We encourage authors to be thoughtful with their submissions and ensure the resolution of the images selected are of publication quality.

Review and Selection

For E&PDE 2019, visual papers will follow the standard double-blind peer review process that traditional papers follow. The review process is managed by the conference organisers and the visual paper chairs and associate chairs. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained throughout the review process.


To provide authors with more flexibility to accommodate colour, format and length in their papers, publications will be made in the visual paper proceedings on the E& website only.
