The ServDes 2014 Call for Papers is out! We are looking for long and short papers as well as for workshop proposals.
The papers will be subject to a double-blind peer-review process. Accepted contributions will be published electronically in the conference proceedings and selected best papers will be published within special issues on Service Design in The Design Journal or the Managing Service Quality journal.
We are looking forward many good quality submissions!
ServDes 2014 theme is about Service Futures.
The services we currently have influence they way we live, move, learn or socialise. The way we conceive and develop the future of services will influence our own future. Also the concept of service has evolved and expanded from just an economic sector or an addition to products to a way to approach and think about innovation. How are designers contributing to service futures? How is the new understanding of service influencing their work? Where is Design for Service heading to?
