Biennial International Conference for the Craft Sciences

Craft Sciences refer to a unity of research conducted in different craft subjects. The Biennial International Conference for the Craft Sciences aims to expose the breadth of topics, source material, methods, perspectives and results that reside in this field.

The conference provides a platform for communicating craft research beyond the borders of faculties and disciplines.

 Through the collaboration with the University of Gothenburg’s Centre for Digital Humanities and Media Technology, the conference will provide novel and supported ways to better elicit the performative and material nature of craft research. The traditional call for research papers is amplified with calls for filmed articles, interactive applications, demonstrations and exhibitions. The submitted research contributions will go through a double blind peer review process and the conference proceedings will be published in FORMAkademisk Journal as a whole, and a selection of the contributions will be developed further to form a special issue in Craft Research Journal, both are level 1 Journals according to JUFO and NSD.
