Second Call for PhD Pit-Stop Proposals

The first batch for PhD Pit-Stop proposals have been evaluated and the researchers have been notified. We have participating PhD researchers from various design disciplines including industrial design, interior design, visual communication design and architecture. The diversity of design disciplines represented and the topics covered in the proposals are truly exciting. We would like to further strengthen the number of participants in each discipline and research interest so that we may engage a large number of supervisors and experts.

We would now like to make our second round of call for the PhD Pit-Stop event. This is a whole-day event that will take place on the 9th of July 2019, Tuesday. This day is followed by the conference presentations between 10-12 July. On the evening of the PhD Pit-Stop day will take place the conference welcome reception.
