DCC10 Workshop: Assessing the impact of complexity science in design 10 July 2010

DCC10 Workshop: Assessing the impact of complexity science in design 10
July 2010

*Extended submission deadline: 23rd May 2010*

Designers today increasingly turn to concepts and tools coming from
complexity science in order to understand, manage and exploit complexity
in their everyday practice. Complexity science has been used in design in
various ways, as a theory of design; as a method for research (e.g. in
order to analyze or model design artefacts, processes and activities); and
also as a method for generating design solutions. The aim of the workshop
is to discuss and assess the impact of complexity science in design
research, design cognition and design practice.

Contributions to the workshop are invited in the form of brief position
papers or extended abstracts (approximately 1000-1500 words long).
Contributions may include examples of how complexity methods and theories
have been successfully used, as well as theoretical or philosophical views
about the relationship between complexity science and design.
