IMarEST’s Marine Electrical and Control Systems Safety Conference (MECSS 2017) will be held at the Technology & Innovation Centre (TIC) on Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 November 2017, and one of the highlights of the event is the Cyber Security Panel Debate<> which is organised by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in collaboration with IMarEST at the end of the first day.
The debate will build on previous successful collaborations between IMarEST and IET, as well as providing additional focus from two major Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs) for this rapidly emerging and complex area for the maritime sector and wider industry.  The Institute discussion sessions at the Learned Society Events always attract lively and informed debate and to ensure the audience represents the full breadth of the marine industry, we would like to offer 20 places at this final session of the day to IMarEST Members in the local area.  These free places are offered on a first come first served basis; all you need to do is to reply to this email with your name, job title, organisation name and contact details; unfortunately we are not able to admit anyone who has not previously registered.

Joint IET & ITP Xmas family Show

“That Rings a Bell” - the exciting new show from David Hall Workshops and Shows…!

Have you ever used a mobile phone?  Watched live pictures from abroad?  Enjoyed FaceTime and Skype?  Can you imagine a world without phones, without telecommunications..?  

From Smoke Signals to Morse Code,  Semaphore to Ships’ Flags and Pennants - and even Carrier Pigeons - we’ve been communicating at a distance for centuries….  But where does the voice come in…?  We’ve shouted, we've cupped our hands, but how did the telegraph become the telephone…?!

“Mr Watson, come here - I want you!”  The first words ever heard over an electronic telephone system…!  (In 1876.)

Join Mr Thomas Watson himself as, with the aid of demos and volunteers, he relates the story of telecommunications and how he helped the great Alexander Graham Bell to invent the world’s first telephone - and change the world..!

•    the science of sound
•    the marvels of microphones
•    the curiosities of conduction
•    the ambition of amplification
•    exciting insights into electromagnetic induction
•    revealing facts on resonant frequencies
•    stunning revelations re sound reproduction
•    the magnificent phenomenon of modern fibre-optics
•    and the lucky accident that led to it all…!

in “That Rings a Bell”   -   the exciting new show from David Hall Workshops and Shows…!!
