St Andrews HCI Research Group

Seminars 2015

This is an open and friendly forum for sharing ideas. We welcome anyone in Computer Science, St Andrews or SICSA to attend. Some seminars are reflecting on areas we are already exploring but some will be from people external to SACHI to help ferment new ideas, new avenues of research, or simply to help us reflect on our own research here.
Please note, if you are presenting or attending for the first time these are brown bag seminars and are typically held on Tuesdays from 2pm – 3pm (unless otherwise noted) in the Jack Cole building in 1.33a (see directions here). Our seminar coordinator is Mr Daniel Rough (who maintains these pages and seminar announcements), if you have any questions please contact him.
