Designers and educators in engineering, architecture and design are invited to participate in the 2nd ConnectED International Conference on Design Education.

The 2nd ConnectED International Conference on Design Education will be held from 28 June to 1 July 2010 in Sydney, Australia. An exciting multidisciplinary program will provide the opportunity to continue the sharing of research in the emerging field of multi-disciplinary design education begun at the 2007 ConnectED conference.

ConnectED 2010 will be in association with the Design Educators Forum of South Africa (DEFSA). Our association with DEFSA is aimed at introducing a major stream of papers from Africa, India and Asia addressing design in relation to development and a truly globalised design economy.

We expect the Conference to attract delegates from Australia, New Zealand and the wider international community. They will come from a wide variety of disciplines including art, engineering, architecture and the built environment.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney in June 2010.
