The 5th International Conference on Design & Emotion

link to website

The Design & Emotion society is established in 1999 as an international network of researchers, designers and companies sharing an interest in experience driven design. The network is used to exchange insights, research, tools and methods that support the involvement of emotional experience in product design. The daily board is based in The Netherlands.

Although the initiative originated from the discipline of product design and design research, through the years practitioners from other design disciplines such as interaction design and branding design, contributed and benefited from the network and activities.

The themes of this year's conference will be:
- attachment and behaviour
- brand and identity
- design and emotion: methodological and theoretical issues
- emotion and culture
- interest, surprise and delight
- senses
- semantics
- space and environment
- space environment
- unpleasant emotions

Speakers of this conference still need to be announced.
