With an emphasis on manufacturing, the conference was an opportunity to hear the latest results from UK academic researchers, the latest developments from UK and international companies active in the technology, and keynotes from top organizations. The packed conference programme featured 37 speakers in 2 parallel sessions and 36 poster presentations as well as a busy exhibition area with 16 exhibitors this year. Delegates also had valuable opportunities for networking with colleagues at the drinks reception and gala dinner at Selwyn College.
