The HOPES Conference is an annual event, held every spring by the Ecological Design Center, a student group at the University of Oregon. Inaugurated in 1994, the conference is an opportunity for students, faculty, community members, and visiting scholars to discuss the relationship between ecology and various design disciplines, and how this connection can produce sustainable solutions to contemporary problems.

The conference consists of a combination of panels, keynote speakers, workshops, exhibitions, and excursions. Past topics addressed during the conference include: environmental literacy, food sustainability issues, religion and the environment, product innovation, and biomimicry. Over the past decade the conference has brought such luminaries as Shigeru Ban, Sim Van der Ryn, Lola Sheppard, Sean Ahlquist, Neri Oxman, Carlo Ratti and Clare Cooper Marcus to the University of Oregon campus.
