RSD7 Conference (09:00 – 18:00)

The conference itself will be held over three days, involving 6 internationally renowned keynote speakers and 7 plenary speakers coming from all over the World and belonging to different professional backgrounds. Moreover, through several parallel sessions organised, the selected authors will present their work opening the debate on the 6 proposed tracks. All the lectures and sessions will alternate to informal networking moments.

N.B. The accepted abstracts and visualisation works must be presented in person by authors. No remotely presentation is allowed because we want to facilitate the debate on the RSD7 topics.


Gala Dinner (from 19:30)
The gala dinner will be held in a characteristic and informal place in the city center of Turin. This is the main occasion for networking and for sharing your knowledge and experiences with old and new acquaintances.

27 – 28.10.2018

De-conference event (08:30 – 17:30)

For the first time in the RSD Symposium, the organisation has added 2 extra days after the conference, so that the participants can spend some time together in an inspiring place in the Alps.

The De-Conference event will be held at the Monviso Institute (MVI), in the community of Ostana, and has been organised in collaboration with the ETH Zurich. In a relaxed and outdoor-oriented atmosphere participants can indulge in systemic design talks, critically assess the visited projects and provide feedback to the MVI and the community of Ostana.
