The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of new research into heat engines prior to 1812. A wide range of new field and desk research into early engines lacks an obvious outlet, forum or focus and this is the underpinning rationale for IEEC. The event design is based on the International Early Railways Conference (IERC). Repeat conferences are anticipated every 4-5 years. The conference will open at 12.00 on Thursday May 11, 2017 and close at 16.00 on Saturday May 13.

Synopses for 20 papers of considerable interest and variety have been accepted and can be seen on our website (www.earlyengines.org)
Catering will be provided and relevant publications will be on sale by the sponsoring organisations.
Delegate costs and are likely to be around £100/person and we will offer options for partners and day tickets.

A bound compendium of previously published articles relating to Early Engines will be provided for all attendees and the conference transactions will be published as a themed edition of the International Journal for the History of Engineering and Technology.

Hotel and accommodation arrangements will not be handled by the conference. Sponsorship – IEEC e facilities and support will be provided by Barnsley MBC. The Newcomen Society will be lead sponsor and the Historical Metallurgy Society (HMS), the Northern Mines Research Society (NMRS) and the South Gloucestershire Mine Research Group (SGMRG) are also providing sponsorship.
