We are delighted to see the return of the Festival of Ideas and look forward to welcoming you all to the Computational Foundry.

This year's Festival is being organised by the Computational Foundry and students from the Centre for Doctoral Training in Enhancing Human Interactions and Collaborations with Data and Intelligence Driven Systems.

Our Centre’s community aspires to have a high degree of diversity of perspective. This is embedded within the Festival. Our aim is to appeal to a multi-disciplinary audience; provoking thought, inspiration and excitement, whilst learning, networking and having fun!

The Festival wants to give postgraduates from any University, across disciplines the opportunity to share their ideas. This will be achieved in one of two ways:

Via a 3 minute ‘Why My Research Matters’ talk and/or
A poster

Prizes will be given for the best entries!
