The Armourers and Brasiers’ Cambridge Forum will be held on Tuesday 17th June in Cambridge, (www.msm.cam.ac.uk/forum/index.php) and the programme can be found at www.msm.cam.ac.uk/forum/ABC-Forum2014-programme.pdf.
This year’s topics include chemical sensors, the materials needs driven by the UK’s nuclear programme, tailored damping and healing of composites and two presentations on surface science. The 16th Kelly Lecture will focus on how a wide variety of surfaces can be designed for special functions for particular applications
There is no charge to attend the forum but it will help the organisers with planning for catering if you register in advance.
The Armourers and Brasiers’ Cambridge Forum is held annually at the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy in Cambridge with the aim of raising the profile of materials science in the UK academic and industrial communities, while being international in scope. The Livery Company itself was established in 1322 – that’s quite a long time in materials science!
