The theme of the congress will be “Design at the Edges” which has the following meanings:
* The edge between the design practices and other fields having a stake in design, including: science, technology, government, business, and non-governmental humanitarian organizations.
* The edge between design disciplines, especially communication, interior and industrial design. What do the disciplines share and what makes them distinctive?
* “Cutting edge” work and ideas in design and in other fields: radically new, controversial, experimental, pushing the boundaries of the discipline.


Owing to the inspiration of inter-discipline integration could arouse creativities, create business opportunities, advance culture and meet the needs of the future, there will be 5 topics in the 3-day congress, including business, humanity, the third sector, technology and health/environment. They are expected to provide designers different points of view and new opportunities.
