The conference received great international response with submissions from researchers across four continents. Papers were interdisciplinary and came from fields including architecture, behavioural science, ceramics, culinary art, design engineering, digital craft, education, fashion and HCI.

Accepted submissions were organised around five strands:

  • Handmade and digital crafts in collaboration
  • Making as action of change
  • Collaboration toward sustainability
  • Multi-stakeholder collaboration
  • Collaboration and knowledge transfer

The post-conference publication will be a special issue of CoDesign to be published in 2020.
