Call for abstracts: Design4Health Conference Melbourne 2017
Swinburne University of Technology and Sheffield-Hallam University
December 4 – 7, 2017, Melbourne, Australia

The Program Committee invites abstract submissions for consideration in the Design4Health 2017 Conference program. The conference themes are: Technology and Health, Future Self, Environment and Self, Innovations in Practice, Processes and Systems, Education/Methods.
This biennial event, hosted in December 2017 by the Centre for Design Innovation, Faculty of Health, Arts and Design at Swinburne University of Technology, and Lab4Living at Sheffield Hallam University’s Art and Design Research Centre, will be held outside of Europe for the first time, in the summer season of Melbourne, Australia.
The Centre for Design Innovation investigates and validates the key factors that underpin the design of products, services, systems, spaces, and symbols to improve the chance of user uptake and impact.
Lab4Living, who established the conference, is an interdisciplinary research initiative that develops products and environments, and proposes creative strategies for dignified, independent and fulfilled living for all.
In December 2017, the biennial event invites the world of health and design practitioners and researchers to come together in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia at the start of our summer season. It’s the best time of year to see Australia, explore Victoria, and exchange the innovations that develop when health and design combine ideas and research for common purpose.
