The role of design as a vital bridge between human interaction and technological innovation is increasingly evident as the world adapts to the new normal.  Formerly distinct boundaries between disciplines have been blurred as creatives and engineers embark on collective cutting edge endeavors.  DeSForM 2023- Boundless: Aesthetics, Human Experience and Intelligence for the New Normal - the 12th edition of the conference will present leading research that investigates the integration of aesthetics, functionality and advance technologies to enhance experiences, well-being, and business.

The conference will explore how the pursuit of enhanced human experiences connect emergent disruptive technologies with artifacts, intangible services, intelligent systems and traditional skills; effectively creating a boundless space that brings together our spiritual, emotional, and physical selves with the external world.


We will like to invite papers on the following topics:



•             Form, interactivity and the human experience



•             Fashion: Process, Visualizations, Artifacts and Beyond



•             Innovation in product and service design



•             Wearables and alternative skins
