We have the great pleasure to invite you to the International Conference on Universal Design (UD2014) to be held at Lund University, Sweden on June 16-18 2014.

Our aim is to make UD2014 in Lund a creative and diverse meeting place for all participants. Universal design, design for all and inclusive design all aim at dismantling physical and social barriers to inclusion in all areas of life. This event will bring together a diverse group of practitioners and researchers in a broad conference that focuses on collectively exploring creative and desirable solution proposals that will shape the future of universal design products and practices.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Sweden in June 2014!

A rich and varied programme

UD2014 will comprise 90 oral presentations; six keynote lectures; two plenary sessions; seven workshops; 25 poster presentations; 10 student projects; and an extensive demo/exhibition track. The themes of UD2014 span over large parts of societal life, in work and in play, in indoor and outdoor spaces, in cities and rural settings, for young and for old.

Full day pre-conference workshop

The workshop will take place June 15 from 9 to 5, the day prior to the official start of UD2014. The cost is 720 SEK + VAT and includes lunch, materials and support for using the tools. Participation in the workshop offers you a unique chance to not only attend all the interesting and exciting presentations at UD2014, but to also take part in a practical universal design co-operation with your conference colleagues!
