Design4Health 2015

July 13, 2015 – July 16, 2015

Design4Health is a biennial conference that brings together designers and creative practitioners with researchers, clinicians, policy makers and users to discuss, disseminate and test their approaches and methods. Our events provide an opportunity to reflect on how the disciplines of design and health might develop new ways of thinking and working, and how we might impact positively and sustainably on the social, economic and cultural factors within our communities and beyond.

We invite papers from researchers and practitioners across the areas of design and health in order to develop new dialogues and offer different perspectives. Given that our focus is very much on designing with people we encourage submissions from individuals using services and products and the sharing of real-life experiences. This year for the first time, we will also be inviting Poster submissions - see our website for full details.

An integral part of the conference is the use of exhibition as a platform for sharing research, offering provocations and posing questions. Therefore in addition to more traditional paper and poster submissions we also invite the submission of innovative works, objects and artefacts that in some way embody research, or in some way set out to challenge social, cultural and operational preconceptions around how we think about, manage and engage with contemporary healthcare and wellbeing issues.
