We are happy to announce registration is now open for the seventh
annual IIT Institute of Design's Design Research Conference (DRC) to
be held September 19-20, 2008 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in
Chicago. The conference is a collaborative forum exploring newly
emerging topics, methods and issues in human-centered design research
from a wide spectrum of disciplines.
In 2008, DRC builds on a tradition of successful student-run
conferences, bringing speakers with international perspectives, new
methods and forward-thinking views, while at the same time
facilitating even more discussion through workshops and roundtables.
Check the website to see our stellar line-up of speakers and workshop
leaders, including Don Norman (Nielsen Norman Group), Maria Giudice
(Hot Studio) and Jon Kolko and Ashley Menger (frog design)!
Registration is now open and seating is limited. Last year’s
conference sold out, so don’t delay! Early registration pricing
(General Public: $825) will last until July 27th, after which the
price goes up significantly. Special pricing available for students,
AIGA members, and recent past attendees. See website for more
