Structure of conference
IDCSID 2022 will be organized in three main components:
The global crisis caused by COVID-19 and variants has impeded the freedoms of movement in a globalised world. IDCSID 2022 is proposing the virtual option to provide academics and practitioners with the online platform to ensure that their research and design work is shared, published and engaged with at this difficult time.
IDCSID 2022 is being organized by the Fashion and Design Institute (under the aegis of the Ministry of Industrial Development, SMEs and Cooperatives (Industrial Division) Mauritius) in Dubai in the context of the Dubai expo 2020 for the Mauritian manufacturing week, which form part of the Mauritius Pavilion. Dubai is a key and easily accessible location to group international academics, designers and stakeholders across the world. The Mauritian Organizing Committee of IDCSID 2022 kindly invites participants to submit papers, either for oral or poster presentations, and attend the IDCSID 2022 on 17– 19 March 2022 in Dubai. Due to the pandemic situation with restriction in travel, the organizing committee is also calling for pre-recorded virtual presentation, Fashion shows and Design displays which will be uploaded on the conference website.
