Navigating Spaces

The sense of direction: science meets industry


Join us to learn how emerging findings from the study of spatial orientation in animals and humans may help solve practical problems of human navigation in a joint initiative between University College London and the Royal Institute of Navigation.

How the mind/brain works impacts how people navigate in cities: this conference will enable exchanges of information, ideas and needs in urban design between researchers, users and industry
The one-day meeting comprises talks from academics and industry, morning and afternoon panel discussions and a poster session/reception in the evening


Themes
• How animals orient – perspectives from ethology and neuroscience
• How humans orient – perspectives from cognitive neuroscience
• Helping humans orient – perspectives from architecture and design
• The future – building a more navigable world

Keynote Speakers to Date
• David Barrie, author of “Incredible Journeys”
• Barbara Webb, University of Edinburgh
• Caswell Barry, University College London
• Tim Fendley, Legible London


A full programme will be available in due course.
