ICDHS Conferences

The activity of the group began with a conference organized in Barcelona (Spain) in 1999. This was followed by a second meeting in La Havana (Cuba), in 2000. The Committee was inaugurated in the Istanbul (Turkey) conference, in 2002. The activity continued in the conferences held in Guadalajara (Mexico, 2004), Helsinki & Tallinn (Finland & Estonia, 2006), Osaka (Japan, 2008), and Brussels (Belgium, 2010).

ICDHS conferences aim to assess the current state of affairs of design history and design studies. They are scientific conferences with a referee process to select presentations. Every conference has a theme, chosen by the board and the local organizers as an indication of the issues to be considered.
