This year we're proud to be a media sponsor for the Design Research Conference (formerly known as About, With and For), hosted by IIT Institute of Design in Chicago. The two-day event runs over Oct. 1 & 2, and features a list of great speakers (you'll note a few Core contributors!) along with a number of hands-on workshops. The event focuses on Design Research, of course, and in addition to the workshops will be more participatory than previous installments, with student presentations, twenty-minute lightning round TED style talks, and other group activities and networking opportunities.
The early-bird registration discount ends on July 30, so hurry up to save almost 1/2 off the full price. Check the Google map of destinations and attractions surrounding the conference that they've set up. You can spend two days just enjoying downtown Chicago!
