Deadlines: April 30, 2019 (abstract), June 30, 2019 (registration)
Type of Event: Conference, International

Two hundred years from his birth, Stokes is a towering
figure in physics and 
applied mathematics. Bringing together an international
group of experts whose 
work today is based upon his work, we aim to emphasise his
influence and legacy 
at 200 to the community as a whole. At the Stokes200
symposium we plan to 
explore and inter-relate all the modern research fields that
have sprung from his 
work in physics and mathematics, along with the history of
how we have got from 
Stokes’ work to where we are now. 

The meeting is to be held at Pembroke College, Cambridge,
where he worked, and 
lived (until he moved just round the corner to Lensfield
cottage upon his marriage). 
Holding the bicentennial of his birth at Pembroke will give
people the full Stokes 
experience: they will enter the College through the entrance
he used, they will walk 
the paths he walked, and eat with both a portrait and a bust
of Stokes looking 
down at them.

The meeting will be held 15-18th September 2019, just after
the bicentenary of his
