The first day of ICED17 (Monday, 21st of August) will feature Workshops run by the Design Society's Special Interest Groups (SIGs). These are a chance for you to meet specialists from a field, for example for in-depth discussions on a particular topic or to help set the future research agenda. They are also a great opportunity for networking and informal discussion! Please visit the ICED website http://iced17.org/sig-workshops/ for a brief overview of the aims of the workshops. Please note that some workshop chairs have asked interested participants to email to express their interest. Contact details are available in the workshop overview, but whether you are able to email or not, please come along!
