The call for proposals to be included in the Annual Design Research Conference for 2018 (ADR18) consisted of proposals for plenary sessions and a curated exhibition for design works.

Proposals were welcomed from academics, researchers, students and practitioners and could relate to any topic within built environment design research under the heading of “Open Session”. Alternatively, submissions could respond to one or more indicative thematic sessions of ADR18, including (but not limited to): Industry and Applied Design Research; Scholarship and Theory of Design Research; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Design Research; Digital and Automated Fabrication Design Research; Computational Design; Design Research Education; and, Critical Design Practice.

Initial proposals for plenary session papers took the form of a 300 word abstract, and proposed works for the curated exhibition: a 300 word statement of research significance and 2 images of work to be exhibited (with indication of medium/dimensions of work and image credits). Please note: images may be used for publicity purposes; and it is the exhibitor’s responsibility to create the exhibited works and transport the exhibited items to and from the University of Sydney.

All proposals have been double blind peer-reviewed, and if successful invited for inclusion in ADR18 and accompanying handbook. A final selection of exemplary texts and graphic materials from the conference will be reviewed and invited for inclusion in an edited academic publication.
