    Proposals are accepted in their broadest form: a paper, a presentation about an idea, a concept, a project or current research.

    The Call is open to scholars, practitioners and concerned parties from all spectrums of the design disciplines, including: architecture, graphic design, industrial design, interior design, landscape architecture, urban planning and interstitial or hybrid practices.

    The Proposals must provoke paradigm shifts and propose how we might rethink challenging world issues through design processes and their applications.

    They must provide innovative insights on how to attain change, therefore contributing to the objectives of the Summit: that is, to demonstrate the tremendous transformative power of design to create viable solutions for the global social, economic, cultural and environmental challenges we face worldwide.

     Each submission must include a 40-word Concept Statement that clearly states the position of the proposal and its innovative and transformative content and a 500-word Abstract.
