We are excited to invite submissions for the third biennial Research Through Design (RTD) conference to be held in Edinburgh, UK, between the 22nd and 24th of March 2017. Building on the success of the second RTD conference held in Microsoft Research’s Cambridge lab in 2015, the third conference, RTD 2017, is to be hosted at the National Museum of Scotland (NMS) in Edinburgh. This promises to be an exciting venue for exploring new and emerging making disciplines, in a sustainably minded and socially aware community of practice. RTD 2017 offers a unique opportunity for conference exhibits to be juxtaposed with traditional curated NMS artefacts and collections, challenging contemporary and future notions of value and expertise. The full Call for Submissions will be announced on the RTD 2017 website, which will be made public soon!
