MRG Conference 2019 - Call for Papers


INGENUM:The mechanics and art of media research

Engineering (from Latin ingenium, meaning "cleverness" and ingeniare, meaning "to contrive, devise") is the application of scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to invent, design, build, maintain, and improve structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes.

We are looking for speakers for the MRG London Conference 2019 on Tuesday 3rd December.

In light of the fact we are holding our conference in the magnificent backdrop of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, our theme this year is to celebrate the mechanics and art of media research.

As we engineer new techniques and methods, how do we ensure we keep to the core principles that have driven our industry for so long.  With the constant drive for change, are we at risk of throwing the baby out with the bathwater, or are traditional research protagonists, simply luddites, standing in the way of progress?

We’d like to hear from you. If you have something new and forward thinking that you would like to present, or an opinion related to these issues, then get in touch.

At this stage we need an outline only (no more than one side of A4), giving an overview of the topic and a brief explanation as to how it addresses our themes and why you think it will interest MRG members.

Please include the name of the speaker(s) and ensure that the file is in a PDF format and given a name that tells us whose paper it is, for example “Company – Title.pdf”  (if we get 100 files called 'MRGsubmission.PDF' it gets very confusing).

Send your submissions to both Joe Lewis and Louise Twycross-Lewis . If the submission is any longer than one side of A4, we will politely send it back for you to amend.

We anticipate papers to be 18 minutes long (if not please indicate this in your submission).

The closing date for submissions is Wednesday 4th September 2019.

Please note one speaker per paper will receive a free place at the conference.

You can now also book tickets to the conference, including early book discounts via the conference webpage.
