The Design Society was founded in 2000, taking on the previous activities and responsibilities of the Workshop Design Konstruction (WDK) Society, especially the organisation of the International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED) series of conferences, which had been running since 1981. Since 2000 the Society has organised ICED conferences in Stockholm, Melbourne, Paris, Stanford, Copenhagen and Seul, with the 2015 event planned for Milan. It has also expanded with members from forty countries and with further very popular events such as the Engineering and Product Design Education conferences and the International Conference on Design Creativity among many other activities. The Design Society concentrates on activities that transcend national boundaries, and, where possible, will seek to complement national activities.
