True to the conference’s theme, the format, participant engagement, content and overall diversity will be like nothing we have done before!
We are holding an Open Space event! For the very first time at an EODF gathering everyone will be able to propose and lead sessions, not just those invited to do so. To engage everyone in dialogue regarding the content of the conference we will use an innovative social media decision-making tool – IdeaScale. Une session en français? Breakout sessions in any language can be proposed and held. While English will be the primary conference language, sessions in other European languages will be welcome – Dutch, Hungarian, German or French, anyone? Visit the EODF 14 IdeaScale webpage to see the sessions that have been proposed so far. We have exciting “special guests ”! Expect a highly diverse set of design thought leaders, practitioners, and academics who will join us to both lead and participate in sessions. See who`s coming to the conference on the conference attendees page.
So, join us in the beautiful, vibrant city of Amsterdam from October 17 – 18, 2014 for two unforgettable days of organisation design sharing and connecting.
