It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Professor Seymour Roworth-Stokes, our outgoing DRS Chair, has passed away after a period of illness.
Seymour was also the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Coventry University. Seymour made a huge contribution to the Design Research Society; he was DRS Chair from 2009 until June 2016 and a member of Council for over 10 years.
He worked hard to promote the society and design research in general and will be very much missed by all DRS Council Members.
