Dulles (United States) - The IDSA National Education Council invites submissions for papers, presentations, panel discussions, and poster proposals for the DIY and Education Symposium – a new pre-conference experience designed specifically for design educators! This one-day seminar will feature groundbreaking research from your fellow colleagues and insight into how DIY is affecting the education profession.

Educators, graduate students and industry practitioners are encouraged to submit abstracts of their recent work.  Proposals will be considered for presentation, publication, or both. The Eastman IDSA Education Council encourages abstracts / proposals on subject areas related to the field of industrial design practice, research, teaching or other emerging design issues. Ideas for panel debates or workshop sessions are also encouraged.
Abstract Submission Protocol:
•Make the body of the abstract blind without any reference to your name, company or school 
•Write both abstract and subsequent article in the third person 
•Where possible, provide references 
•Keep the abstracts as brief as possible—one page maximum—with no artwork. (Exception: proposals for poster sessions should show examples of the proposed visual presentation - Web standard .jpg format (no larger than 72 dpi and 1 MB per photo)
