Electromagnetism: The Road to Power

New series of International Conferences on the History of Physics starts in 2014 with a Conference in Cambridge, UK.

Organised by IOP History of Physics Group
Supported by the European Physical Society

The conference will inaugurate a new international series, bringing together professional historians of science, practicing physicists, science museum staff, lecturers, teachers and others with interests in any aspects and periods of physics history.

Student attendance and participation will be encouraged in the firm belief that a study of the history of the subject can inspire future generations by informing them about the lives and work of great scientists, and also facilitate a better understanding of topics that present conceptual problems today just as they did to their discoverers.

The conference, being sited at Trinity College, will offer the opportunity to present some aspects of Cambridge’s scientific history. Visits to Woolsthorpe Manor where Sir Isaac Newton was born and undertook much of his work, and to the Cavendish Museum, with its rich history of exhibits, will be arranged.

The leading theme of the inaugural conference will be:

Electromagnetism: the Road to Power

However, invited papers will extend to other topics, and contributed papers on all aspects of physics history will be considered for inclusion.
