Event description

Description

The seventh annual Winton Symposium will be held on November 1, 2018 at the Cavendish Laboratory on the theme of “Machines: from cosmic to the nanoscale"

Machines for energy conversion and detectors play a crucial role in our society. Key technology drivers now seek to make them more efficient and to operate across different scales. The symposium will discuss the chemically powered world of living systems alongside the man-made world of electrically and optically coupled devices with speakers’ topics ranging from electric motors to detectors of gravity waves, from nanoscale devices to those spanning kilometres to explore our universe.

The one-day event is an opportunity for students, researchers and industrialists to hear a series of talks given by world leading experts.

There is no registration fee for the Symposium and complimentary lunch will be provided, however due to the large demand for places, participants are required to register on-line for the event.

The symposium is organised by Professor Sir Richard Friend, Cavendish Professor of Physics and Director of the Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability.
