The International Conference on Design & Emotion is a forum held every other year where practitioners, researchers and industry leaders meet and exchange knowledge and insights concerning the field of design and emotion. The conference will offer research paper presentations, design case presentations, poster presentations and workshops. Since 1999, when the series of Design and Emotion conferences started, this is the first time it takes place in Latin America. The Design Department of the Universidad de los Andes, located in Bogota, Colombia, will host the conference from October 6 to 10, 2014. The workshops will be held simultaneously in three different cities from October 6-7: Bogota at Universidad de los Andes, Cali at Universidad Icesi, and Medellin at Universidad EAFIT. The organizing committee of the 9th International Conference on Design and Emotion is pleased to invite researchers, design practitioners and the general public interested in the cross-disciplinary field of design and emotions to participate in and attend to this conference.
