The Design Management Academy’s international research conference will be hosted by the School of Design School at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The DMA International Research Conference is organised under the auspices of the Design Society’s Design Management Special Interest Group (DeMSIG) and Design Research Society’s Design Innovation Management Special Interest Group (DIMSIG) in collaboration with: Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Loughborough University, Tsinghua University, University of Strathclyde and Delft University of Technology.
The theme of the conference is: “Research Perspectives on Creative Intersections”. Design is becoming more strategic, both in the private and in the public sector. There is a wider range of interfacing activities with internal and external clients and collaborators than before and there is also a wider spread of disciplines to productively interact with. New methods and technologies for collaboration and interfacing have come up. China has been the centre of manufacturing for quite some years. Now it has become a leader in the development of internet services and the most important market in the world in many categories. In this new landscape, the roles and responsibilities of designers are changing dramatically, both in Asia and in the rest of the world.
The Design Management Academy invites an international community of scholars to formulate areas of explorations and academic contribution which are outlined by the following 7 meta themes, within the 19 tracks around which the conference is organised:
