We’re at Design 2016!


Waking up at 4:30am?  We don’t mind when it’s because we’re flying to Cavtat in Croatia for the Design 2016 conference!

If we can drag ourselves away from the pool at the ‘Team LOCM’ villa, we will be running a workshop on “Designing the next generation of project management dashboards for global engineering projects.”  This will be at 13:45 today Monday 16th May in Salon 5 – please do come along.

You’ll also see some of the team presenting throughout the week:

  • Session 214: 8:15-10:15 Tuesday 17th May, Congress Hall Konavle 

Dr Chris Snider – Determining work focus, common language and issues in engineering projects through topic persistence.

  • Session D212: 08:15-10:15 Tuesday 17th May, Congress Hall Bobara

Dr Duncan Boa – Discriminating Engineering Information Interaction using eye tracking and an information operations model.

  • Session D412: 08:15-10:15 Thursday 19th May, Congress Hall Bobara

Dr James Gopsill – Computer aided design user interaction as a sensor for monitoring engineers and the engineering design process.


The Language of Collaborative Manufacturing is a £1.9M research project sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and led by the Universities of Bristol and Bath in collaboration with our industrial partners.  We aim to deliver next-generation project dashboards that can identify potential project issues, improve productivity, and improve the management of aspects such as intellectual property, risk and cost.
