Welcome to the summit of Ideas!

The summit is a platform to create an enduring partnership between design and organizations leading to innovation and increased economic competitiveness. Just as large and small gears work together in harmony, when designers work with organizations, they ignite innovation.

Design has become pervasive. The activity of design is being practiced by myriads of disciplines including engineering, computer science, information systems, and business. Titles such as software design, engineering design, human-computer interaction design, and systems design is commonly seen now along with product design, industrial design and graphic design. Everyone connected with these titles and other such titles are welcome!

The discipline of design offers a unique way of seeing the world and approaching problems. The summit is a stage to bring the traditional fields of design in partnership with the fields of technology and business towards the development of new products - real and virtual. It is a manifesto to inform the future of our highly technological age, profoundly in need of humanizing.

The summit will bring about new ideas, new initiatives, and new thinking needed to contribute to the larger picture of design in the knowledge economy. The purpose of the summit is to synergize, find new methods of working together with an attitude of openness, cooperation, and exploration.
