News! The Oslo School of Architecture and Design is hosting Relating Systems Thinking and Design 13 in October 2024. The group will post updates here as plans progress.
RSD13 invites you to consider systemic design’s emerging features in the context of knowledge perspectives, praxeologies, and lived experience. The river of conversations metaphor harkens us to the tributaries of the thirteen RSD hubs in 2023, connects the ecotones of previous symposia, and the interdisciplinary functions of systemic design as bridges that connect meanings and mental models.
Early ideas and themes are coming together and will be posted in the formal call for contributions. Here are some of the streams under consideration:
- Design with other disciplines
- Care and well-being
- Safety, security, and resilience
- Sustainable and regenerative realisations
- Pasts, present and futures
- Failures, learnings, and hope
RSD13 is envisioned as a seven-day event beginning with a three-day online pre-conference programme designed around ten-minute webinars with assigned discussants. The online sessions are followed by a three-day in-person symposium, which is an opportunity to convene around a single paper track and keynote speakers from the systemic design network and is followed by a de-conference day, also in-person, which takes a retreat format with an open space agenda and playshops.
Call for contributions: beginning of January 2024
Deadline for submissions: end of March 2024
