The theme: Infinite Threads 

The theme of the 3rd annual SDN Next Gen Conference is “Infinite Threads: Interdisciplinary Collaboration to Unlock the Power of Service Design.” 

This year, SDN Next Gen Conference aims to weave a more inclusive, global tapestry of Service Design. In our increasingly globalised society, design solutions require shared and inclusive approaches to reflect diverse needs and perspectives. Conference attendees will gain invaluable insights, connections and experiences that will enable them to craft human-centred, socially-conscious, and impactful design innovations that our world needs more than ever. The conference will transcend individual titles and explore the interdisciplinary skills, knowledge, and networks that thread the various efforts to address complex global and local challenges. 

At SDN Next Gen Conference 2024, attendees will be part of a movement of students, young and senior professionals and career shifters unlocking the power of service design through interdisciplinary learning and collaboration! 

About the virtual venue

The virtual conference will be hosted on Ringcentral, the same platform that was used last year. Attendees will have access to the replays of the conference sessions approximately 30 minutes after their conclusion.  Ringcentral also allows attendees to create a profile, search matching profiles, and set up in-platform meetings to facilitate networking.

Ticket registration is open for all through our financial inclusion initiative

At the SDN, we are committed to achieving a more diverse community of global practitioners unconstrained by economic barriers that may hinder them from accessing everything our organisation has to offer. In line with this thinking, we are offering discounts on virtual tickets for attendees registering from countries classified as “Lower middle” or “Low” income economies, using the World Bank’s country income index as a guiding framework. 

 

FAQ

 

What is SDN Next Gen Conference? 

SDN Next Gen Conference is an annual international platform that brings together students, young professionals, universities, and corporations from diverse industries. With a focus on fostering interdisciplinary collaboration, the conference aims to explore the latest trends, best practices, and real-world applications of service design.

 

When is SDN Next Gen Conference? 

SDN Next Gen Conference will take place on the 12th of April 2024. 

The conference will kick off 00:00 UTC (11:00 AM Melbourne time) and span 22 hours to accommodate 3 major regions:  

  • Asia/Australia: 11:00-19:00 AEST (UTC+11)
  • Europe/Africa: 10:00-18:00 CEST (UTC+2)
  • Americas: 11:00-19:00 EDT (UTC-4)

 

Do I need to attend all 22 hours of the conference?

There’s no need to rise early or stay up late to participate – our conference setup lets you experience all the live benefits during your local time and watch recorded content from all regions afterwards.

Each of the 3 region’s programming will entail the same overall structure, experiences, and benefits. You are, of course, welcome to attend and participate in all conference events, not only the events taking place during your local region time.

The entire conference will be recorded, and all attendees will be able to view recordings of all conference events afterwards.
