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.
