2017 IDA Congress: Call for Interest

28 February 2013
15 August 2013
The International Design Alliance (IDA) has opened the call for expressions of interest for its 2017 Congress. Member organisations of Icograda, IFI and Icsid are eligible to submit a bid for consideration. Proposed themes should address cross-disciplinary and discipline-specific content, which will result in an enhanced awareness of the value of design for the good of all.

The biennial IDA Congress is the primary event for dialogue between designers and non-designer stakeholders in a summit format. The aim of the IDA Congress is to bring together the unified voice of designers around the world in a themed framework to advance the vision and mission of the IDA, by exploring and realising the benefits of design in a variety of fields with a stake in design, such as government (commerce, trade, culture etc.), INGOs, business, science and technology, education or social sciences (ethnography, sociology etc.)

Full details regarding the bid process and conditions can be found at www.idacongress.com

The extended deadline for submissions is 15 August 2013 at 17:00hrs EST.

Any questions about the IDA congress or bid process can be directed to
