CALL FOR POSTERS

Food concepts beyond the table. Food design is the design segment where food is central, and which focuses primarily on topics related to the preparation of edible products. It is not merely about designing tableware/wear and eating tools but about shaping new lifestyles and ways of approaching food starting from raw materials and thus new agricultural models, nutritional values and improvement of eating habits, and discussion of cross- cultural influences and food fusions.

This call is for young designers from all over the world. The scientific committee will select projects that provide the broadest possible vision of food design including communication and packaging design, the design of places for consumption, with ideas on eating on the move or at the office. The projects may include items already produced as well as experimental concepts (university research projects or works in progress)

A 120 -minute poster session will provide an interactive forum for authors to discuss their work.

Presenters will be assigned locations to put up their posters, which will be organized by topic.
Poster boards and pushpins will be supplied, to attach posters to the boards for display.
Presenters are encouraged to prepare and bring 1-page double-sided handouts to accompany their posters.

Designing for new food systems, products, and experiences both locally and globally
