Design and design researchers often disrupt the status quo in acts of creative disobedience, taking a contrary view to shed new light on a challenge. EAD2019 invites designers and researchers to explore the disruption, risks and transformation of design by submitting papers to one or more of the eight exciting RUNNING WITH SCISSORS Tracks.

Submission for Extended Abstracts is now closed. Authors notified of the outcome of the Extended Abstract reviews on 24 September 2018.

If your submission is accepted, the deadline to submit your Full Paper is extended to 23 November 2018. Full papers should be up to 5000 words in length excluding abstract and references. We expect high standards of scholarship and clarity in terms of outlining research questions, establishing context, explicating methods of inquiry, and reporting insights and results. If English is not your native language, please let a fluent speaker or a professional proofreading service revise your contribution.

All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings if at least one of the authors registers to present the work at the conference. The publication will have an ISSN/ISBN number and a DOI reference to ensure it appears in scholarly web-searches and will be accessible from the conference website.

Using the links below, please download the SUBMISSION TEMPLATE, follow the guidelines, complete and SUBMIT your completed document to the conference review system by 23 November 2018.

Peer Review

EAD2019 is an international conference for the reporting and conduct of a wide variety of design from researchers, innovators, professional design services and service users. We invite a broad range of research and design projects at every stage of the journey. We encourage the highest standards of scholarship, seeking clarity in terms of context, explanation of methods, and the reporting of results and-or next stage(s) for the work.

Our aim is to support the design community in an enterprising manner and increase the quality of peer reviewing for EAD. All forms of submission, including full papers will be selected through a double-blind review process conducted by an international review panel. The review process for each sub-track of the conference will be managed separately by a sub-chair and their team who will oversee the peer review process for submissions. This will involve inviting and allocating reviewers, resolving any opposing reviews, and making recommendations to the overall EAD 2019 review committee. ConfTool is the primary tool for managing the submission and reviewing process.

Conference Presentations and Proceedings

Authors of accepted papers and all other submission formats are expected to attend and present their work at EAD2019 in Dundee. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and the intention is for these to be available at the conference.
