It will be our pleasure to welcome you to north-east England for the 2020 International Conference of the Engineering Mechanics Institute! The conference is co-organized by Durham and Newcastle Universities and will be hosted by Durham University in Durham, UK.
We are sure you will find north-east England to be a spectacular place, combining awe inspiring natural beauty with a blue-collar culture of humble and friendly people, who have made more than their fair share of engineering impacts with the likes of Oliver Heaviside calling it home. Durham Cathedral is a World Heritage site right in the centre of the small city of Durham (all pictures in the site header are taken in the city), while Newcastle upon Tyne’s metropolitan city centre (only 20 minutes away from Durham by train) has a nightlife to rival any major city. Branching out just a little farther, you will find the historic Hadrian’s Wall just over an hour’s drive to the north, a coastline to blow you away in Northumberland and the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the south.
We are sure you will have an intellectual and life experience to be remembered!
