Conference Colloquium - Designing with Smell: Challenges, Techniques and Perceptions
Eight International Conference on Design Principles and Practices, UBC Robson Square, Vancouver, Canada, 16-18 January 2014
This conference session at the Eighth International Conference on Design Principles and Practices
in Vancouver, Canada in January 2014 will bring together academics and practitioners from across a range of design disciplines and include presentations on some of the different ways in which smell is being considered and incorporated into design practice.
This call invites abstracts for oral presentations of 15 minutes from academics and/or practitioners who are including smell in their work in some way, and will explore some of the challenges and opportunities faced in doing so. Presentations might highlight, for example, issues experienced in making the invisible visible within design and prototype development; sourcing appropriate materials and expertise; dealing with issues and perceptions of chemical sensitivity; wrestling with consumer fears of manipulation; and, evaluating and evidencing the impact of olfactory characteristics upon consumer and public perceptions of the product, service and/or environment being designed.
To be considered for inclusion in this 90 minutes conference session, please email an abstract to Victoria Henshaw at the University of Manchester, UK, no later than 5pm (GMT) Monday 8 April 2013.
Deadline: Monday 8 April 2013
