Decipher Conference is Sold Out!

September 7, 2018 / By aigaeducators

Decipher 2018, our Design Educators Research Conference, kicks off on Thursday, Sept. 27 at University of Michigan. Due to an overwhelmingly positive response to the conference and our various design research themes, we have reached capacity and had to close registration earlier than expected.

If you are already registered and plan to attend, please check the conference website for updates, and visit our FAQ for answers to your Decipher questions!

Questions not addressed in our FAQ can be directed to

If you missed the opportunity to attend, we hope you will continue to follow Decipher at our conference website and via social media (look for the #Decipher2018 hashtag via Twitter and Instagram during the conference). We hope that following the conference, we will have many interesting ideas, resources, and outcomes to share with you. We estimate that the proceedings will be published sometime in Spring 2019 and are excited to work with Michigan Publishing, our new partner for publishing DEC conference proceedings. All AIGA DEC digital proceedings will be free/open access.

Thanks to everyone who submitted facilitation and participation proposals! We look forward to seeing you in Ann Arbor soon!
