Below is a description from the conference organizers.

Facing the drastic changes in the current international community, thinking and looking forward to futures is becoming a new starting point and foothold of design innovation. The 2nd International Conference on Design Futures will discuss the methods and frontier thinking of design futures from the perspectives of future philosophy, future design education, future creation and future society,respectively, in the cross-cutting fields of philosophy, aesthetics, science and sociology.

The Conference will invite internationally renowned experts and scholars in the fields of design, futurology, philosophy, science, technology, education, etc. to discuss the opportunities and challenges faced by mankind in the 21st century, think about how to predict and deal with complex social problems, and look forward to the future from the perspective of design innovation.

In the ICDF 2021 Panels, we will try to explore four themes: Futures Philosophy | Futures Creation | Futures Society | Futures Design-Edu. It is hoped that this conference will promote the coordinated symbiosis and development of science and technology, economy and society, and integrate future thinking into innovative practice, so as to cope with and lead the uncertain future. This international conference will plan the future with an advanced vision, forge ahead in the tide of the times, start from the responsibility and mission of education, and build futures together with stakeholders in various fields.
