Call for Abstracts RSD9 Relating Systems thinking and Design (RSD) conferences
October 13-15, 2020 National Institute of Design, India
Abstracts due April 24, 2020
The 2020 theme calls for research and fruitful case studies that share results and impacts with the RSD community. Together, we’ll explore real-world contexts where sustainability, co-designing, policymaking, and ecology are already colliding, as well as new tools and methodologies to evolve our individual and collective points of view about leadership and the transformative practices -and challenges-of large-scale collaboration for the betterment of all the species on Planet Earth.
After eight very successful Relating Systems thinking and Design (RSD) conferences we are travelling the first time to Asia.
The conference will take place in Ahmedabad at the National Institute of Design, 13th to 15th October 2020

If you are not familiar with the RSD conferences you can check out the proceedings from former conferences to see films of keynotes and to read working papers and presentations.
Please notice that we are asking for contributions form academic research as well as from systemic design practice
The RSD conferences offer a low entry threshold to share your thoughts on how we might align and meld systems thinking with design. We ask for abstracts which are peer reviewed. Later we ask for working papers and at a third stage we offer the opportunity for people to develop full papers to be published in academic design research journals most notable Formakademisk and She Ji. You will find the proceedings as well as the special issues and books published as an output from RSD at www.systemic-design.net<http://www.systemic-design.net>
The RSD conferences are providing an open and friendly atmosphere yet with high level presentations and sharp discussions.
We also have a membership organisation, the Systemic design Association (SDA) that has a democratic elected board. The purpose of the SDA is to help organising the RSD conferences with the local hosts and to maintain the social network.
