Satellite Meetings  
Welcome to BIT’s Annual Global Congress of Designers-2014
Design is indeed the design of life; it creates a new world for material civilization, continuously transforms the content of our lives and improves the quality of our lives. Therefore, it is also the most important elements of the contemporary civilization. Along with the development of the times, people will put forward higher requirements for the design, which means the competition will become more and more intense, and the design will be more and more important. During the conference, there will be designers, well-known academics and enterprises, associations, institutions from 100 countries and regions all over the word to participate in this event. On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the conference, we cordially invite you to attend the event. In the cool summer 2014, let us meet in the beautiful coastal city of Dalian, to discuss the opportunities and challenges of today's design.

It is a forum for discussion and further development of all aspects of design knowledge from cognition and methodology to methods and philosophy, from research theory to practice. The goal of the conference is to bring together worldwide top designers from a variety of field and present state-of-the-art research projects. The conference will offer broad exchange possibilities to designers and practitioners, strategic decision makers, managers and so on.
