Design is ubiquitous; it pervades all spheres of life, and has been around ever since life has been purposefully changing the world around it. Research in design and the emergence of a research community in this area has been relatively new, its development influenced by the multiple facets of design (human, artefact, process, organisation, and the micro- and macro economy by which design is shaped) and the associated diversification of the community into those focusing on various aspects of these individual facets, or various applications. Design is complex, balancing the needs from multiple stakeholders, and requiring a multitude of areas of knowledge to be utilized, from resources spread across space and time.

The collection of papers in this book constitutes the proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Research into Design (ICoRD’11) held at the Indian Institute of Science in the city of Bangalore, India during 10-12 January 2011. ICoRD’11 is the third in a series of biennial conferences held in India to bring together the international community from diverse areas of design practice, teaching and research, to: share cutting edge research about design among the stakeholders; aid the ongoing process of developing a collective vision through emerging research challenges and questions; and provide a platform for interaction, collaboration and development of the community in order for it to take up the challenges to realise the vision. The conference is intended for all stakeholders of design, and in particular for its practitioners, researchers, teachers and students.

The contributions from leading authors from universities, independant research and corporate organizations provide an invaluable overview of this rapidly moving subject and an insight into key research and development areas. This comprehensive collection of indexed and peer-reviewed articles is also contained on a CD with search functionality.
