Young Researchers Forum

Poster presenters (incorporating the AuxetNet Young Researchers Forum)

The AuxetNet Young Researchers Forum will be run as part of the poster session and will be coordinated by Professor Kim Alderson. Kim was the Principal Investigator of the original AuxetNet network established with funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council in the UK, through which this annual Forum was established in this conference series. Kim will convene a panel to judge the poster session and determine a worthy recipient of the AuxetNet Young Researchers Forum prize.
