On April 17, Harvard GSD will host this year's annual interdisciplinary Doctoral Conference, "Data Across Scales: Reshaping Design." The conference invites design reachers and practitioners to examine the role and potential of data in design. Particularly apt for the technology-centric times of present, "Data Across Scales" focuses on the proliferation of information technologies within personal and professional contexts.
"We produce, share, collect, archive, use and misuse, consciously or unconsciously an immense amount of data," reads a statement on the conference's website, "This burst of data production and collection has already had a profound impact on the way we organize ourselves as a community."
"Data Across Scales" will cover a broad range of topics proximal to technology, from the experience of the physical world to issues of design conception, transparency, and civil participation. Free and open to the public, the conference is comprised four panels: "Data-Driven Design," "Programming the Physical World," "Urban Design and Big Data," and "Open Data and Civic Media." The program will commence with an opening reception in the Loeb Library at Harvard GSD from 8PM on April 16.
Registrations can be made and the full conference program viewed here.
