Welcome to the 24th International Conference on Engineering Design
24 - 28 July 2023Design in a complex world
Design and engineering are fundamental activities that interact in shaping the world in which we live. Nowadays, we can see a world full of promising technologies, a hyper-connected world in which information is paramount. However, the environmental impact of these technologies is a great societal concern. Sustainability is becoming a central issue for future generations. Design must therefore surely reinvent itself by embracing the broader issues of designing complex systems in a complex socio-technical environment with limited resources. In this regard, the ICED conference is a unique forum to discuss the academic, educational and industrial issues and the needed changes.
The conference will be organized around plenary, podium and discussion sessions. Academic and industrial experts will deliver high-level keynotes. The General Meeting of the Design Society, the Special Interest Group Day and Young Members’ event will offer great opportunities to share and discuss ideas. An Industrial Day will allow a deep dive into developments and innovations for sustainability and for discovering key technical focus of nearby companies. Finally, social events will give an opportunity to appreciate Bordeaux wine and French gastronomy.
We look forward to welcoming you at ICED23!
