LANCASTER, UNITED KINGDOM
THEME: SERVICE FUTURES
- The first day was dedicated to practical explorations of Service Design with 8 workshops led by both practitioners and academics.
- The second day was mostly focused on (long and short) papers presentations organised in three parallel sessions and 2 extra workshops.
- The third and final day was partly dedicated to papers presentation and came to an end with three parallel forums exploring the future of Service Design Research, Education and its relationship with Social Innovation.
Working at the boundaries of Service Design, Digital and Social Innovation, the keynote speaker Dominic Campbell (Futuregov), projected novel spaces and responsibilities for Service Design in relation to complex societal transformational challenges, while Prof. Pelle Ehn (Malmö University), positioned it within a historical retrospective of Participatory Design in a constant search for more democratic (service) design practices.
The conference was organised around five main themes: Emerging Directions for Service Design; Design for Service Innovation and Transformation; Service Design and Implementation; Novel Service Design Frameworks and Tools; Service Design Across Organisations.
ImaginationLancaster, an open and exploratory design-led research lab at Lancaster University, UK, hosted the 2014 edition of the ServDes Conference.
ServDes.2014 focused on how Service Design is contributing to ‘Service Futures’ and how it is developing as a field of research and practice. The conference considered how the concept and role of services have been developing in the recent decades and questioned how Service Design is evolving following a similar path. Starting from its initial focus on service interactions and experiences, Service Design research and practice have entered more strategic and transformational roles, dealing with issues of organisational change, system design, sustainability and social change, amongst others. The concept and applications of this design field is also expanding and required some collective considerations.
The conference attracted 175 participants from 24 nationalities, of which 60 percent were academics and 40 percent were practitioners.
