RTD (Research Through Design) is a new, experimental conference that supports the dissemination of practice–based design research. RTD welcomes submissions from all areas of design and comprises a curated exhibition of design research artifacts accompanied by round–table discussions in ‘Rooms of Interest’. With this format, RTD aims to present an alternative to the traditional conference presentation of papers in darkened auditoriums, and supports a more discursive, synergistic setting that places the sharing of designed artifacts at the heart of proceedings.
