The 8th International Conference on Inclusive Design, organised by the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Arts.

The conference theme for 2015 is Disruptive Ideas in Inclusive Design.

Ever since the international inclusive design community first came together around the needs of older and disabled people for the inaugural Include conference in 2001, a series of disruptions have moved the tectonic plates under the field.

Definitions of inclusive design have expanded, new directions have proliferated and the rapid emergence of new technologies has altered the landscape too.

Co-design, co-creation and crowdsourcing have re-cast the relationship between designers and users; social innovation and digital manufacture have raised new agendas.

As a result, the pluralistic world of inclusive design now looks very different from the picture at the turn of the new millennium.
