3rd International Early Engines Conference, 22-24 March 2024
Building on the success of our previous conferences, we are delighted to confirm our third event, (IEEC3) will be hosted by the Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life from 22-24 March 2024
DATES, TIMES AND VISITS?
The event will run from noon Friday 22nd until noon on Sunday 24th March 2024 and it is our intention to arrange group visits to three surviving Newcomen Engine Houses on Thursday 21st and to a number of significant Scottish stationary engine sites on Monday 25th. Please note both visits are not covered by the conference ticket as detailed logistics have still to be confirmed
FORMAT, CULTURE AND WHAT ABOUT PAPERS?
We are again determined that the culture of the event will be inclusive, co-operative and non-elitist. If you haven’t attended previously ,we will ensure you feel welcomed and included. The format will be similar to IEEC1 and 2 including publication (at no extra charge) of the Conference Transactions.
As you would expect, there will be a focus on early engines and engine builders in Scotland and we have received proposals for papers on the Caprington and Farme Colliery engines and early Scottish Engines . Outside Scotland we have proposals for papers on Heslop engines, Early engines around Ironbridge, Humphrey Potters European Engines and others. We seek additional proposals for papers as early as possible and no later than the end of October 2023.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT FROM IEEC1 AND 2?
Because we do not have an external “soiree” on the Friday evening ( our event will be inside the Museum around their Grant Ritchie Steam Winder) our ticket prices will be lower than previous events. We hope this encourages those residing south of the border to make the journey to Scotland
Full Ticket £95, Day Tickets £35, £50 and £20 (see separate booking form)
