Information for potential visitors

Visits are usually for a period of one month / four weeks, longer visits may be possible exceptionally.  You would be based in our offices at the Big Data Institute. We would also encourage you to give a talk at our weekly seminar series, and/or write a short blog for our website during your visit.
