Opening our LAST CALL for proposals!


Another successful round of Call for Proposals has just closed for the World Design Summit.

Continuing the impressive momentum of the 1st call, 760 proposals have now been submitted from over 50 countries around the globe!

270 proposals for presentations, sessions and or workshops have been accepted after having undergone the rigorous and thorough review process done by our Scientific and Professional Committee and their teams of reviewers. All proposals from the 2nd call are currently going through the same detailed procedure to add to the already exciting line-up of ideas to be discussed and explored at the WDS Congress.

Due to the overwhelming response to our 6 driving themes and stimulating topics, the World Design Summit Organization and the Committee have officially decided to open for a LAST CALL.

You have until August 6th, 2017 to get your proposals in. Do not miss your chance to partake in the innovative and powerful discussions that are heading to Montreal this October.
