The Cumulus conference will be held in Denver from Sept. 29 – Oct.2, under the theme
. From Understanding to Design and Back Again
“ (Cumulus) Designers can no longer be spectators. The boundaries we are used to have disappeared and as human beings we ‘play’ a real role in designing the world around us.”
Cumulus is a global association serving art and design education and research.
The Paper Lectures and Discussion Sessions look very interesting. Here are just some that caught my eye:

“On March 26,
Parsons and MoMA with IFF, Seed, and Coty present Headspace: On Scent as Design.
Headspace is a one-day symposium on the conception, impact, and potential applications of scent. This event gathers leading thinkers, designers, scientists, artists, established perfumers as well as “accidental perfumers” (a selection of architects, designers, and chefs invited to experiment with scent) to acknowledge scent as a new territory for design and begin to draft the outline of this new practice. The event marks the establishment of a new
MFA in Transdisciplinary Design at Parsons.” (Headspace)
