Dates: 9-11 December 2016
Location: Nagoya, Japan
Website: UD2016
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 June 2016

Japan’s first international conference on universal design (UD) was held in Yokohama in November 2002. The International Universal Design Declaration adopted on the final day defined UD as a way of creating a social environment that respects the humanity of every individual, and asserted that it was urgently necessary to rebuild the relationship between makers and users and thereby create a human-centered system that applies to all aspects of society. Since then, various people in various fields have conducted activities based on that declaration.

The next international conference, after Yokohama in 2002, Kyoto in 2006, Hamamatsu in 2010, Fukuoka in 2012 and Tokyo 2014, will be held in Nagoya in 2016. At this conference we will transmit, from Japan to the world, the results of the further advances that have taken place in UD-related research and practices, and also share information and carry out interpersonal exchanges, thereby aiming to realize a higher-quality UD society.

The theme of the next conference is “Creating Shared Value through Universal Design.” Plenary or sub-sessions and other forums will be presented during the conference, where we expect lively exchanges of opinions to take place.

To encourage the widest possible range of activity reports, essays, research papers, etc., from people active across industry, government, academia, design practice, civic activities, and other areas, and to facilitate a dynamic debate around key issues of participation, inclusion and design-for-all we are asking for abstracts by June 15 prior to submission of full papers by August 15. Abstracts should specify subjects / activities and the nature of any proposed presentation, workshop theme etc. The intention is to facilitate feedback from the Scientific Committee prior to the submission of full papers in order to ensure the best possible subject coverage and workshop / session structure for the conference.

Contributions are sought from people active in any relevant field, and we are particularly interested in reports of ongoing UD activities and the results of recently completed projects, along with themes and proposals for the further development of UD in the future. We hope to receive papers from a diversity of people, including researchers, educators, design practitioners in all disciplines, product planners and developers, consultants, people involved in NPOs and other civic activities, students, and others. The 6th International Conference for Universal Design 2016 could thus be an opportunity for you to present your research results, or your efforts in product creation or practical affairs, to an international audience of experts and leaders in the field of UD.
