UD is an annual, peer-reviewed conference series organised by the PhD in Design Programs of University of Porto and University of Aveiro.
In 2015 UD stands for Under Development: doctoral research in Design currently in progress or recently completed.
UD15 invited PhD students, candidates and prospective scholars in Design to share the accomplishments, uncertainties, puzzlements and challenges they face during their research process and to unravel them with other participants. The forum aims to create a pool of common issues and inquiries that have yet to be addressed, resolved and embraced.
We welcomed chaos, celebration, failures, epiphanies, dilemmas and freak-outs and encourage absence of fear.
