What is RIVAL?


Update on Friday 13 March 2020

RIVAL event 3 on Thursday 19th March is cancelled due to coronavirus.


  • We have had a couple of withdrawals, including some speakers. Edinburgh Napier University is advising against non-essential travel within the UK. So, with the approval of the head of our School of Computing, we have decided to cancel event 3 on Thursday of next week.
  • We intend to run event 3 later this year, and event 4 after that. We will send details when they have been arranged.
  • If you have any queries at all, please email Bruce at b.ryan@napier.ac.uk, or tweet Bruce at https://twitter.com/Bruce_Research.

Sincere apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
