After a succesful event held in London during 2014, this Colloquium has moved to Birmingham for 2015! A free one-day meeting bringing together research engineers and scientists to share the latest technical knowledge about electromagnetic devices, systems and the propagation of electromagnetic fields. If you would like to be part of the ... read more...

The Heaviside Memorial Project is now accepting donations.

This is a not-for-profit project aims to fund, through public subscription, and organize the restoration of the memorial to the great British mathematician and electrical engineer Oliver Heaviside and his family.

This project was conceived and is being organized/implemented by the Newcastle Electromagnetics Interest Group (NEMIG) at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Newcastle University, UK.

The family plot is in Paignton Cemetery, Torquay, Devon where he spent the final years of his life and was buried with his parents, Rachel Elizabeth and Thomas Heaviside. The plot is in very poor condition and requires urgent restoration in order to revive and preserve this lasting monument to Oliver.

Oliver Heaviside, mostly self-taught, founded modern electrical engineering science, much of which is now taken for granted. He developed mathematical techniques for the solution of electric circuits (e.g. operational calculus and the Heaviside step function) and most famously reformulated James Clerk Maxwell's Electromagnetic Theory into the form we know and are taught all around the globe today... this is only a very small selection of his great achievements. He was recognized by being elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, he was the first recipient of the Faraday Medal and also received an honorary doctorate for his revolutionary contributions.

Please donate to The Heaviside Memorial Project today and contribute to the restoration of the monument so that it may last as a reminder to future generations of this man’s great contribution to science and engineering. The goal is to raise £800 for a full restoration of the monument.

Thank you for your interest and kind generosity.
