Welcome to the UkMagSoc’ s Ewing Event for 2023.
The Ewing is more than just a technical conference or seminar, it’s an opportunity for the whole magnetics community to come together, listen, learn and discuss what’s happening in their particular magnetic field in addition to catching up with old friends during the heavy focus on social interaction.
As the magnetics world keeps getting larger and larger the UkMagSoc tries to provide a platform for technical discussion and social interaction across a wide range of topics and the Ewing is our end of year event that crosses a number of disciplines.
Last year the focus was on the application of Magnetics in Fusion and this year it’s a nominal focus is on interesting things with Magnets, including Magnet Production, High Field Lab Work and recycling. Everything you ever wanted to know about magnets and more!
We really do hope you will come along to what will be a very informative and interesting day, filled with the chances to learn and touch base with new and old colleagues as well as evening dinner and drinks in Birmingham city centre.
