SAGE Publishing Young Engineer Lecture

Sponsored by SAGE Publications Limited

The Society has a number of awards which, by their nature, are intended to recognize senior members of the Society for their work in Experimental Mechanics. However, it is also important that the Society recognize members early in their career whose work demonstrates considerable potential in the field of Experimental Mechanics. That is the focus of this new lecture.

As with all SEM awards, we strongly solicit nominations from the members of the Society for this lecture. The nominee should be recognized for the potential of work early in his/her career, and should be a member of the Society. On the academic side, this could be someone at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. On the industrial or Government Lab side, it could be someone up to 10 years after hire. These are only guidelines and not absolute rules.
