Design Researcher Portfolio Review

I’m considering putting together a spin-off portfolio review that focuses on Design Research, rather than design. I know portfolio reviews can include design research, but I want to put more of an emphasis on this for those interested in that areas - this can include designers, researchers, psychologists, anthropologists, etc.

I may try to pilot this at the 2008 IDSA northeast district conference. I’m interested in feedback on this concept. Is there interest?

Here’s some additional detail:

I love this idea. I remember when I had graduated, I had a difficult time figuring out how to put research into my portfolio. I don’t think I ever found an effective way of doing it. Non-designers were always impressed, whereas designers hurried me through it, “yeah…we all did that in University”.
