The UK Magnetics Society (UKMagSoc)’s 31st Ewing Event, titled ‘The Future’s So Bright – Potential Trends in Magnetics’, will be held on November 28, 2018, at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester, UK. Following on from 2016’s Ewing Event, which looked at the previous thirty years of magnetics development, the 31st Ewing Event will look to the future of magnetics over the next three decades.

The event will cover a number of areas of magnetic technology including manufacturing, generation and transmission, machines, spintronics, graphene, materials, automotive, skyrmions, computing and CAE, among others. 

During the full-day technical seminar, a series of talks will cover questions such as how research may change the way materials are viewed; the demand posed by mass uptake of electric transport; ways in which the UK’s exit from the European Union may affect supply chains and trade for the UK market; recycling as a growth area for supply, and more.

Speakers currently confirmed for the 31st Ewing Event include:

  • Dr Steve Constantinides, Magnetics & Materials LLC (speaking via Skype) – Permanent Magnetic Materials
  • Dr Pascale Deen, ESS ERIC – European Spallation Source & New Methods for Examining Magnetism
  • Prof Jan Sykulski, Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton – Computing, Software and CAD Systems
  • Prof Robert Lee, Law School, University of Birmingham – Legal & Geopolitics
  • Dr Dave OudeNijeweme, APC – Automotive & Transport
  • Prof Barrie Mecrow, School of Engineering, Newcastle University – Machines and Motors
  • Mr Mark Cichuta, Cogent – Soft Magnetic Materials

In the evening following the seminar, the keynote Ewing Lecture will attempt to draw common themes from across each topic addressed during the day and provide a summary outlook on the field. The event will then conclude with an informal dinner for all attendees.

This year’s Ewing Event is chaired by Dr Cris Emson, Infolytica Europe, and sponsored by  NEMA (Nordale Electro-Mechanical Actuation), Rochdale, UK.
