This paper presents a bibliometric keyword analysis for the international DESIGN conference. We combined related keywords to form DESIGN topics. After that, we visualized the connections between the topics. Our analysis shows that the web of science database does not contain the DESIGN 2012-14 proceedings. That is relevant for the conference organizers, because content visibility is important. The topic visualization benefits both contributors to and organizers of the international DESIGN conference, because it shows trending topics and it indicates areas with room for improvement.
Keywords: design research, visualisation, data mining, topic detection and tracking, bibliometrics
