In June 1981, the first "Simposium on Design - Scientific and Professional Meeting" took place at the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture. The proceedings of this event encompassed four themes: "The Science of Design, Computer Aided Design, Ergonomic and Design, and The Situation in the Field of Designing in our Science and Industry". Motivation for the Meeting was emphasised in the Foreword: "The development of new technologies in many fields of human activities imposed the necessity of scientific approach to the process of designing. This need emerged, demanding qualitative change in approach, development and application of the methods of design. Based on modern scientific achievements and modern information processing, these methods create a new technical scientific field "The Science of Design". Comparatively fresh, this scientific discipline analyses the process of design development with the aim of discovering the rules governing design processes…" Looking at the proceedings of this event it is hard to imagine that this conference would continue to gather interest for the next 35 years. After three events in Zagreb, the conference first took place in Dubrovnik, in the year 1998 and since y. 2000 Cavtat has provided an inspiring environment for discussion amongst researchers and practitioners that think and practice design in all its multifaceted manifestations. The founding of Design Society and the effort of the DESIGN programme provide a synergy that has brought DESIGN conference to its 14th event, celebrating its 35th anniversary. The design research presented at the 14th DESIGN conference reflects predominantly the interests of design researchers and practitioners connected with academia, epitomising the current situation in design research, readdressing questions that have been discussed through the last four decades or more. Although the answers offered are in some cases similar to previously published research there is clear development, reminding us that science provides only partial truths. The truly thought provoking essence of design lies in its complexity that cannot be modelled or formally designated within autonomous theory or models. Noticable variation in approaches, proposed design theories and models recently became a research theme tending to consolidation and convergence. Since the first "Meeting" the progress has been made: for design and for design research, or to be more precise, in research about design and implementation in design practice. These advances have led to methodological stability and autonomy of the design discipline. Discussion and further development of all aspects of design knowledge from cognition and philosophy, to methods and tools, from research theory to practice is the reason for gathering at DESIGN conferences. In the papers selected for the DESIGN 2016 conference the authors strive to improve design projects and processes that will require new methods, processes, competencies, information and communication technologies. How this influences engineering design methodologies and tools in practice and what impact it will have on design practice should became focal points of this discussion. The programme of DESIGN 2016 is the result of a joint effort of Programme chairs and Organising team who have been working together for a long time. We would like to express our gratitude to all the authors who have submitted their papers and all the reviewers who have helped to select papers, ensuring an outstanding conference experience for all. A special thank you goes to all the authors and Session Chairs, who will make this experience possible.
