Welcome to ICDS 2024

Design Science stands as a foundation for breakthrough ideas, transformative experiences, novel solutions, and the practical application of structured knowledge. This interdisciplinary field synthesizes principles from mathematics, physics, mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and several other disciplines to pioneer scientific approaches in system and process design. Its role is pivotal in nurturing cross-disciplinary cooperation and propelling forward-thinking innovations in product design, thereby elevating quality of life.


The International Conference on Design Science (ICDS 2024) is set to convene at the State Key Laboratory of Mechanical System and Vibration, School of Mechanical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. This gathering is supported by the SJTU-GEC Academy Center for Innovative Design for Interdisciplinary Studies, the Shanghai Society for Modern Design Theory and Methodology Research, and the Xie Youbai Design Science Research Foundation.


Building on the foundational achievements of the 2023 conference, ICDS 2024 will continue to explore cutting-edge advancements in design science, particularly with the integration of transformative technologies such as big data, digital twins, and artificial intelligence.


The 2024 agenda will underscore the critical role of design models and methodologies amidst burgeoning technological applications. The conference is designed as a premier venue for scholars, innovators, and industry leaders to showcase their most recent discoveries, deliberate on groundbreaking solutions, and uncover synergies for collaborative ventures. Topics slated for discussion include:

  • Agile Design

  • Fuzzy Logic in Design

  • Data-centric Design Approaches

  • Enhancements in Design through Digital Twins

  • Pedagogies in Design Education

  • Principles of Engineering Design

  • Biomimicry in Design

  • Leveraging AI in Design Processes

We warmly invite your participation at ICDS 2024, where diverse viewpoints and expertise will merge to forge the future trajectory of design science. Your engagement will significantly enrich the conference, fostering an atmosphere ripe for the exchange of ideas and cooperative exploration.


A warm welcome to the 2nd International Conference on Design Science (ICDS 2024)! This gathering brings together eminent scholars, research experts, and industry professionals from around the globe to explore and share cutting-edge research findings in the field of design science. May our collaborative discussions and interactions during this conference propel the innovative development of design science, steering the forefront of emerging technologies and applications. We look forward to your rich experiences and insights gained from ICDS 2024, as together we shape a bright future for the field of design science.

Submission Guidelines & Ethics

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are kindly invited to submit full papers that include the following elements:

·Metadata – title, keywords, abstract, professional affiliation(s), and cited references in the bibliography must be included, and written in the English Language.

·Abstract – a brief and objective summary that previews the rest of the paper it describes. It should be succinct yet provide enough information about the paper to facilitate a decision on whether the entire paper could be read with profit. 

·Introduction – an introductory statement of the purpose of the paper, usually describing the hypothesis that will be tested and a summary of related previous work by others.

·Methods – the methods that are used to test the hypothesis should be given in sufficient detail that another researcher in the field could duplicate the testing.

·Results – the hypothesis should be tested and data representing the results of the testing presented.

·Conclusion – the data should be discussed and the results interpreted, and conclusions given.

Each paper should be no less than 4 pages. One regular registration can cover a paper of 6 pages, and additional pages will be charged. Please format your paper well according to the conference template before submission. Please prepare your paper in both .doc/.docx and .pdf format and submit your full paper by email with both formats attached directly to
