ISDS will dedicate itself to the establishment of a platform for research, innovation, cooperation and problem-solving. This platform will provide opportunities for design researchers to discuss frontier issues, broaden academic insight of design discipline, strengthen skills and methods on design research, create innovative research results in the overall field of design, assist front-line designers absorbing the core and essence of design and implementing scientific methods so as to perfect the design process and improve the design efficiency. I also hope design educators can demonstrate the current development of design discipline objectively and explore the direction of design going forward in a way optimize and reconstruct the design subject and discipline in colleagues and universities.
