2022 Regional Conferences

The Interior Design Educators Council (IDEC) invites educators from around the globe to submit abstracts that explore the foundations of interior design, its teaching, and scholarship. Abstracts are double blind reviewed by qualified reviewers who provide recommendations for accepted presentations at the 2022 IDEC Regional Conferences.

Authors are encouraged to submit scholarly and creative abstracts that celebrate the discipline of interior design in its many facets: pedagogy, history, theory, practice, interdisciplinary collaboration, and any other topic of current and/or continuing relevance to interior design. Several abstract formats will be considered for presentation, and many methods of inquiry are invited. All submissions are expected to be original research or ideas that have not been presented previously at other scholarly venues, including previous IDEC regional and national conferences.
