The organisers of this international conference are pleased to announce that registration for EKSIG 2009: is now open.
The conference aims to provide a forum for debate about methodology and methods for the inclusion and communication of knowledge in research and practice in the creative disciplines and practice-led disciplines. The need to be more explicit about research methods, frameworks, and methodologies has arisen from the increasing use of creative and professional practices as part of the practice of research in recent years. While
research guidelines and regulations have been either generic enough, or were adjusted, to accommodate the use of some creative and professional practices under certain conditions, the debate about the nature, aims, validity, evaluation, and necessity of such research has continued.
The conference aims to bring together people from different fields and disciplines with different approaches to address these issues. In this respect, the organisers are delighted about the great response to our conference call with over 70 submissions from 23 countries! The great interest promises to make the conference a truly international event with challenging multi-vocal debates around the conference themes, and to facilitate exchange and cross-fertilization between the creative disciplines and other practice-led disciplines such as education and knowledge management.
