Mumbai (India) - There is still time to take advantage of the early bird registration rates for the first Icograda Design Week international conference in 2007. The conference will take place from 8-9 February and is being hosted by the Industrial Design Centre (IDC), which is a post-graduate design school at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, Mumbai.

Designed to be lively, interactive and thought provoking, the conference will provide a great opportunity to converse with grandmasters of design, interact with thought leaders and listen to the vision of outstanding designers.

The theme for the Conference is Design Local Stops at all Stations , which is a metaphor drawn from the locals - the popular name for the commuter railway network in Mumbai. Design Local emphasises the need for local design solutions for the masses to make their living affordable, comfortable and suited to their own culture. The local gives us a readymade symbol for understanding how design reaches out to people and their daily lives.

Speakers will explore the subthemes of Culture and Identity Systems, Design Process and Strategy for Business, Information and Visualisation and Explorations and Imageries.
