Early career researchers, PhD students, new commercial designers, or new academics, starting to explore a new research area or wanting to discuss an emerging idea have submitted a Poster Proposal.

In the first instance, authors are invited to submit a 400-word abstract of their work along with (up-to) 5 images and an indication of their level of experience e.g. PhD, Early Career Researcher, Commercial Design.

Final posters should be printed in full colour at A0 size and will be exhibited in one of the main public spaces of the conference (details on printing options will be available in due course). There will be a prize for the most effective poster presentation and a session in the conference dedicated to discussion around the poster presentations.  A successful poster will:

  • be able to attract people to it (in situ) when viewed from a distance
  • be easily accessible, legible and readable once people have approached the poster
  • present research or an idea that is emerging and interesting
  • stimulate debate and responses while also connecting to the conference themes and values

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.
