This event will consist of a full day seminar, followed by an evening consisting of a reception, awards ceremony, the Ewing Lecture and an informal dinner.
Talks will be given on various aspects of magnetics, looking back over the last 30 years and into possible future developments. The Ewing Lecture will be given by Prof Stephen Blundell, of the Clarendon Laboratory, University of Oxford.
The venue, the Royal Institution of Great Britain, has a long and distinguished history in science and engineering, and there will be unscheduled access to the Ri’s museum throughout the day. The museum includes Michael Faraday’s actual laboratory where he made his fundamental discoveries of the magneto-optical effect and of diamagnetism.
The reception will be held in the King’s Head pub, on the block before the Ri.

The Royal Institution of Great Britain is in the heart of Mayfair, London, so the best way to travel is by the underground (tube). The nearest station is Green Park on the Jubilee, Victoria and Piccadilly lines, and the RI is about 5 minutes walk from there.
It’s central London, so parking is practically non-existent, and what there is is expensive. You may also incur the Congestion Charge.
More details on travelling to the Ri can be found here.
