The BSSM's Sixth 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’ sponsored by Instron will be run during the conference based on peer-assessed judging by all attendees.

Prizes will be awarded to the winner and runners up for the amount of £125, £75 and £50.


Speakers will be required to present either a summary of their research so far or on a particular aspect of their research. Presentations will be kept short to 15 mins, focusing on presentation skills and clarity of communication, followed by 5 mins of questions. Presenters do not need to prepare a written paper for publication at the conference (although distribution of any materials amongst participants is welcome).

A collection of the presentation slides and a summary of each subject will be available for download from the BSSM website after the conference.


The PGEM will be an online event, organised by the BSSM in conjunction with the University of Manchester.
