Three leading researchers in the fields of design, human-computer interaction, and psychology presented their latest research and share their insights into the interplay between social sciences and design research: prof. John Zimmerman (Carnegie Mellon University), dr. Disa Sauter (University of Amsterdam), and dr. Geke Ludden (University of Twente).

The symposium was organised by the Delft Institute of Positive Design and Infuse, and was moderated by dr. Anna Pohlmeyer and prof. Pieter Desmet. The symposium was followed by the PhD defence of Jay Yoon: “Escaping the emotional blur: Design tools for facilitating positive emotional granularity”.
