Each year, a call for papers is launched inviting academics, educators, researchers and professionals to submit their paper abstracts that address the latest issues, trends and innovation relevant to the field of experiential graphic design.
Recent papers feature developments and advancements in design curriculum with a focus on transforming the search experience, alternative exhibit spaces and methods and introducing students to the design process.
SEGD Academic Task Force
Leading the SEGD Academic Task Force is Christina Lyons, Professor and Chairperson of the Graduate Exhibition & Experience Design programat the Fashion Institute of Technology. “The Task Force looks for papers that push the industry forward with new ways of thinking, teaching and executing experiential graphics,” says Lyons. “The Task Force invites these ideas to come from across the design community—educators, practitioners and students alike.”
2020 Academic Summit
The 2020 SEGD Academic Summitwill be held on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, in Portland. The event will bring together educators, students, research and practitioners from the field of experiential graphic design.
“Our annual Academic Summit benefits from the highly innovative educators who submit papers to our peer-reviewed process,” says Ann Makowski, SEGD’s Interim CEO. “The result? A robust educational conference that brings leaders in experiential graphic design education together to share their successes and highlight where the field is going.”

“The selected papers for both presentation at the Annual Academic Summit and for publication in the academic journal Communication+Place serve as inspiration and industry benchmarks to designers, students and researchers,” continues Lyons. “This is the source for thoroughly researched and tested experiential graphic design topics from the field, as well as innovations in design curriculum.”
