At the end of 2015, SDL submitted one full paper and one short paper to the Servdes committee and we're proud to announce that both papers have been selected to participate at the conference in Copenhagen this May.
It's our pleasure to be part of this annual international event, where we'll get to meet and learn from fellow service designers. We'll definitely be sharing more when we get back.
Service Design is now a recognised field of design research and practice, with a growing international network of practitioners and academics. However, publications in this field have mainly focused on establishing the discipline and their volume is still limited and dispersed. There is a growing need for original research on Service Design and for dedicated places for its dissemination. The ServDes conference is an answer to this call. Even if the conference is research focused, the format and the selection of publications are relevant for academics, practitioners and industry. ServDes is organised around themes that are defined by the conference committee and organisers. The papers are peer-reviewed in a double-blind review process and published in the conference proceedings."
