The International Committee for Design History and Design Studies (ICDHS) is an international organization of scientists and experts founded in 1999 in Barcelona with the aim of advancing, disseminating and exchanging knowledge in the field of design history and theory. To this end, the ICDHS biennially organizes a thematic international conference which has so far been held in a dozen world cities such as Istanbul (2002), Guadalajara (2004), Helsinki (2006), Osaka (2008), Aveira (2014). This has contributed to the global progress and visibility of the profession in Latin America, Europe and Asia.
