2005 Include Conference: Universal Design

| 0 TrackBacks

The object of the biennial Include conferences is to strengthen and build on growing links between those researchers, practitioners and companies who have identified inclusive design as a strategy around which social and commercial objectives can converge.

At Include 2005 we will engage in discussion and debate, listen to a range of thought-provoking papers and presentations, review current best practice and identify future opportunities, and most importantly spend several days in each others' company.

The key outcome for us all, beyond bringing ourselves up to date, is to make a reality of the opportunities inclusive design provides for business and society - in Europe, Japan, the Pacific Basin, America and elsewhere.

Programme

Include 2005 will run over 4 days (5-8 April 2005) with an opening reception on 5 April 2005.

Key activities are:

  • The research strand consisting of keynote presentations, paper sessions and debates, seminars, poster discussions and workshops, along the lines of Include 2003.
  • The design-practitioner strand - new for 2005 - will have a strong emphasis on inclusive design, to build on legislative standards set to be introduced in 2004.
  • An exploration of 5 years collaboration between the Helen Hamlyn Research Centre and the Design Business Association.
  • Conference organizers intend to capture the conference on CD-rom, for papers etc, and DVD, for highlights, interviews and selected sessions.
