The Covid-19 pandemic has changed people's notions of distance. Physical distance, as in "social distance," is more clearly recognized than ever before. On the other hand, we can observe that the use of online platforms has reduced mental distance as well. In 2022, the world is facing a period of further confusion. In this session, we will explore the role art can play in terms of the distance between people through thinking, making, and writing.

At TGSW2022, we will organize online international sessions including a keynote speech and oral presentations. A session of student-delivered lightning talks (2–3 minute presentations) will also be held. We are calling for papers on topics specifically related to the session theme, but broader topics related to the subject of Art and Design are also welcome. Abstracts will all be reviewed by the Review Committee comprising our faculty and external reviewers/scholars from industries, governmental organizations, and other academic fields.


TGSW 2022では、オンラインで基調講演と口頭発表による国際セッションを開催します。また、学生によるLightning Talkセッション(2〜3分のプレゼンテーション)も行われます。特にセッションテーマに関連したトピックに関する論文を募集していますが、アートとデザインのテーマに関連した幅広いトピックも歓迎します。抄録はすべて、当大学の教員および産業界、政府機関、その他の学術分野の外部審査員/研究者で構成される審査委員会によって審査されます。
