Delegates can register and pay in advance of submitting an abstract.
The BSSM PGEM Conference aims to bring together PhD/MPhil postgraduate students and early career researchers involved in the field of Engineering measurement and experimental techniques in stress, strain and vibration analysis. The conference provides an excellent opportunity to share and discuss their current research in a low pressure and relatively informal environment, learn about research projects at other institutions, network amongst like-minded people and make contacts for the future. The conference is also an ideal opportunity for professionals from academia and industry to learn more about the cutting edge research currently taking place within UK Engineering technology institutions. Sessions will be co-chaired between the student attendees / academics. A ‘Best Presentation Competition’ shall be run during the conference based on peer-assessed judging by all attendees.
PGEM 4 is sponsored by
The conference will be spread over two days.
PROGRAMME TO FOLLOW
Speakers will be required to present either a summary of their research so far or on a particular aspect of their research.
