Design Creativity is an important and interesting topic of study in design. Since it involves the profound and essential nature of design, design creativity is expected to be a key in not only addressing the social problems that we are facing, but also producing an innate appreciation for beauty and happiness in our minds. In order to elucidate the nature of design creativity, the following issues are being studied: cognitive processes underlying design creativity, computational models of design creativity, and practical processes to incorporate the human and social dimensions.

ICDC is an official conference promoted by the Design Creativity Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Design Society. The SIG was established in 2007. Its focus includes engineering design, industrial design, artificial intelligence, linguistics, and cognitive science.
