The first Annual International LDoc PhD Research Network Conference on Risk and Resilience in Design Research will take place between 2nd – 3rd April 2020 at BBC White City. The conference will bring together creatives in the field of innovative cross-disciplinary practise and emerging scholars who represent a broad range of disciplines and perspectives. A variety of presentations and workshops offer opportunities for attendees to share their work, discuss key issues in the field of design research and build relationships.


We are encouraging all LDoc partners and students to present papers, run workshops and attend the conference to share the excellent practise currently being undertaken as well as thinking about ways in which to push the boundaries of design research practise. The call for papers and workshops is on our website and we would like to take this opportunity to highlight the important date of January 31st 2020 for abstracts of 150-200 words.
