The Centre for Design Informatics is a collaboration between the Schools of Design and Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. 

Each year, we invite a variety of practitioners - from local business people to academics to artists - to share their story in our Research Seminar Series.

Talks take place at 4pm on Thursdays in the T-Room (1.09), located on the first floor of Evolution House, 78 West Port, Edinburgh, EH1 2LE.

We are delighted to announce the details of the ten Design Informatics Research Seminars scheduled for the first semester of 2016 - 2017.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Please contact Jane Macdonald with any queries.
