RSD10 Final Call for Contributions
Hand under bright light

NOVEMBER 3-6, 2021 | DELFT, NETHERLANDS

Submission deadline: July 31, 2021

The RSD10 call for short and long paper proposals is closed, but the second call – for interactive contributions – is on! As with papers, presenters can be online or in person.

RSD symposia have produced an archived resource made up of hundreds of papers; however, just as important are practice cases, workshops, and systems maps (aka gigamaps). This year, RSD10 is also creating space for dialogues in the spirit of “Playing with Tensions”. Through dialogues and other interactive presentations, RSD10 invites us to explore tensions, reveal paradoxes, identify the sites of connection, breaks in scale, and examine complexity.

All the details and important links for the Call for Interactive Presentations, including the submission and review process, are available on RSD10.

RSD10 Call for Interactive Presentations

Practice case studies are 1-1.5-hour panel sessions, where the authors of each contribution have 10-minutes to present their work, followed by a 30-minute open discussion. Authors guide themes, and the audience joins in the interplay of ideas and maps out the regions of exploration.

Workshops are an opportunity to share systemic design tools and methods with RSD10 participants. They provide participants with hands-on experience to learn about new principles and concepts while also allowing for testing and prototyping ideas and co-creating new knowledge. Given this year’s theme, an element of play is also encouraged. Workshop/play sessions are scheduled as sessions ranging from 60-120 minutes.

Dialogues are 1-hour sessions in a format chosen or designed by the dialogue moderators. They are an opportunity to develop new ideas, questions and knowledge. They are an opportunity to explore tensions between different people in complex contexts and to discover productive ways forward collectively.

Gigamap Exhibition

Systems maps and gigamaps are an RSD highlight! Designers are asked to present them with a video explainer and in person, if onsite. The RSD10 theme invites designers to consider playful interactions and provocations to enhance their exhibit.

Submission deadline: July 31, 2021
