Calling Researchers, Educators, and Innovators!

We invite you to participate in the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Call for Poster Abstracts at GATHER 2023 – The National Conference by ASID, in Los Angeles, CA, August 13th – 15th, 2023.  Poster sessions are a visualized format for presenting research data or highlighting innovative products, projects, or practices. Research is a broad category and can include many types of methodologies, such as experimental research, applied research, project outcomes and evaluations, or literature reviews addressing research questions. We are looking forward to your submissions and displaying your work at GATHER.

About ASID

We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter from evidence-based and human-centric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. ASID Education is recognized throughout the interior design industry as a leader in providing quality education products and services. Speakers and presenters associated with ASID Education events, programs, learning assets, and platforms are similarly recognized as industry thought leaders and subject matter experts. Through education, knowledge sharing, advocacy, community building, and outreach, we strive to advance the interior design profession and, in the process, to demonstrate and celebrate the power of design to positively change people’s lives. 


Benefits of Being a GATHER Poster Presenter

Poster presenters at GATHER will have a unique opportunity to showcase their research and gain increased visibility throughout the ASID community. Along with their companies and organizations, presenters are included in promotional information, other marketing materials, and listed on the GATHER 2023 website. Being a poster presenter allows for opportunities to network with peers and professionals at specifically designed connection points throughout the event.
