We are awaiting the Proceedings from the Melbourne team. Once we have them, they will be posted on our Publications page.

Our huge thanks to the Centre for Design Innovation for hosting a fantastic conference in Melbourne’s hallowed Cricket Ground. Our particular thanks go to Kurt Seeman, Deirdre Barron and Siobhan Bahn for making delegates feel welcome and for putting on an excellent conference. We’ve had some excellent conversations, met some inspiring researchers, made connections and, importantly, eaten very well indeed in this beautiful city! Don’t forget to share your impressions using #D4H2017 @design4health @cdiengage @lab4living
