This is a running list of questions that come up during the call for contributions period. Please reach out to if you have others.

What is the submission link?

All RSD13 submissions are made via EasyChair (RSD13 call for contributions)—If you already have an EasyChair profile, sign in to go to our submission area. If you don’t, it only takes a few minutes to set up, and there is no cost/payment involved.

What are the deadlines?

We won’t be able to accept new submissions after March 15. If you are planning on submitting, please start your submission before March 15; you will be able to update until April 30.

Please register your intent by providing an abstract (it can be changed later) on EasyChair to hold a place and help us coordinate reviewers. All submissions must be completed by March 31 to allow time for peer reviews.

Do I have to present in person?

Nope. Accepted papers and presentations will be part of RSD-ONLINE.

Can I run an online workshop?

Yes, online workshops will be programmed into RSD-ONLINE. Note that we view workshops as co-productions; you should be prepared to co-promote your session. Workshop submissions are reviewed by the programme committee.

What costs are involved in presenting?

There is no submission fee; however, if accepted, you must be registered with RSD to present. As RSD is a symposium format, it is for people who want to engage with the work of others as well as present their own.

Thanks to the support provided by hosts, RSD fees are kept as low as possible, calculated to directly offset the cost of EasyChair for managing submissions and reviews, technology, and activities that exceed the capacity of volunteers. RSD is an incredible value—the online sessions include papers, presentations, panels, and many other events, including speakers. As always, RSD offers reduced fees on request for residents of low to middle-income countries (see World Bank) and those who face other financial constraints.

How are reviews handled?

Papers and presentations (short papers) are peer-reviewed (single-blind). The academic/programme committee sets up a reviewer pool and continuously monitors submissions so reviewers with related experience can be invited to do reviews. Once the deadline has passed, the papers are released to the reviewers, who provide qualitative feedback and a grade.

What’s happening in Oslo?

The in-person event will be hosted by the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (venue to be announced). The three-day symposium is an opportunity to convene around a single paper track and keynote speakers from the systemic design network. It is followed by a de-conference day, also in person, which takes a retreat format with an open-space agenda and playshops.

What is the programme for RSD13-ONLINE?

RSD13-ONLINE is a three-day online pre-conference programme dedicated to paper sessions, workshops, interactives and panels.
