Authors have the opportunity to present their work to an audience of knowledgeable professionals from the UK and abroad and to participate in discussions with that audience.

Ideally, papers (or an extended abstract and a presentation when appropriate) should be original to the UK audience but previously presented material may be accepted at the discretion of the Gears 2018 Chairman.

Some suggested application areas include:

  • Manufacturing & Processing
  • Quality Control and Inspection
  • Applications & Case Histories
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Materials
  • Design Analysis & Methods
