CUMULUS Milan 2015 – The Virtuous Circle. Design Culture and Experimentation will take place June 3-7, 2015 in Milano, Politecnico di Milano.

The deadline for submitting the papers (max 4000 words) is Monday, November 24.

Incubating / Scaling Design’s role today in envisioning and conceiving social interactions, practices and behaviours in the form of solutions and services, is more and more concerned with the need to understand how to scale-up such complex artefacts. This track focuses on how design can support incubation policies or the replication of initiatives, solutions and services that imply complex social interactions, often involving social innovation, and that are likely to evolve into business ventures or structured organisations.

Specifically, it aims to explore the following issues: what are the features that design can work on when it comes to scaling-up a solution? What methods and tools can it adopt? What skills must designers develop to make a venture out of a potential innovation? How must the design discipline change in order to embrace this challenge?
