This year’s Ewing will be on the transformation that’s starting in aerospace: the change to electrical systems and electric propulsion.
The event will cover materials, motors, aircraft, engagement and systems, with the aim of creating, developing and cementing relationships within the magnetics community throughout Europe and the UK.
It will be a full day event, with a full technical seminar of talks, followed by a drinks reception and informal dinner in the evening.
The Ewing Lecture will be given by Prof Chris Gerada of the University of Nottingham, Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Industrial Strategy, Royal Academy of Engineering Chair of Electrical Machines, and lead of the university’s Power Electronics, Machines and Control group.

The programme and timings are being finalised, but we will start around 11:00 am and finish the talks about 18:00. We’ll have a 2 hour lunchbreak to allow plenty of time to see the exhibitors and museum.
The “formal” part of the evening will run from about 18:00 to 23:00, and consist of the reception, Ewing Lecture and informal dinner.
TRANSPORT AND ACCOMODATION
Both are being finalised and we should have announcements shortly. But we expect to have a couple of hotels in or near Cambridge for different prices ranges, and to run coach services from the hotel to the museum in the morning and back again after the dinner.
The dress code for the event is business attire / smart casual.
