Celebration & Contemplation

After 9 successful conferences on 4 continents, our field of research has become both accepted and widely spread, and we can confidently say that we have succeeded in our aim to facilitate dialogue in the field of design.

At the 10th conference, we will again bring together design practitioners, researchers and industry, and as always invite the D&E community to present their latest work and welcome cutting-edge keynote speakers.

At the same time we will invite thought leaders to host theme oriented sessions, exploring and discussing future directions, with which we aim to define a new framework for the mission statement for the next 15 years.

It is our great pleasure to invite you to join the conference next year, and to participate in the discussion. Looking forward to seeing you in Amsterdam!

Paul Hekkert
Chairman of the D&E board

The Design & Emotion Society

the Design & Emotion society raises issues and facilitates dialogue among practitioners, researchers, and industry, in order to integrate salient themes of emotional experience into the design profession.

The Design & Emotion society is established in 1999 as an international network of researchers, designers and companies sharing an interest in experience driven design. The network is used to exchange insights, research, tools and methods that support the involvement of emotional experience in product design. The daily board is based in The Netherlands.

Although the initiative originated from the discipline of product design and design research, through the years practitioners from other design disciplines such as interaction design and branding design, contributed and benefited from the network and activities.
