The Department of Industrial Design, Northwestern Polytechnical University and Delft Institute of Positive Design, Delft University of Technology are pleased to invite researchers, design practitioners interested in design for experience and wellbeing to participate in the International Conference on Design for Experience and Wellbeing 2019 (DEW 2019) 24-25 Sep, Xi’an, China.
The goal of experience design has been evolving from simply offering the users with enjoyable momentary experiences to enhancing long-term wellbeing of individuals and societies through design. DEW 2019 is a forum where international design scholars and practitioners meet and exchange state-of-the-art knowledge and insights concerning the cross-disciplinary field of experience design and its ongoing evolution towards wellbeing-centric design. The theme of this DEW 2019 conference is “Heritage and Vision”. We believe that this transition from experience design to wellbeing-centric design requires a critical review of the heritage (i.e. knowledge on experience design) that the field has accumulated over the decades, as well as a visionary reorientation, and a new level of interdisciplinary collaborations and explorations. The program committee calls for your contribution to DEW 2019, addressing all issues of design for experience and wellbeing. This invitation is extensive to communities beyond design studies, such as social science, humanities, engineering, computer science, HCI, psychology, cognitive science, health sciences, marketing and business.
