Sustained Prosperity through Proactive Monitoring, Diagnosis, Prognosis and Management


The 25th COMADEM Congress will be taking place in Huddersfield, UK, from the 18 20 June 2012.

Huddersfield is a large market town situated in the heart of Northern England. With a history dating back over 4,000 years, the town has long been associated with engineering and textiles industries and played an important role in the Industrial Revolution.

The town also has a long history of education and innovation dating back to the formation of the Scientific and Mechanics Institute in 1825. The University of Huddersfield, which will be host of the COMADEM2012 congress, is an institution with active research interests across a variety of subjects including precision engineering and engineering diagnostics, and a long track-record of applied research and industrial collaboration.

Alongside its industrial heritage, Huddersfield sits on the edge of the Peak District, the UK most popular National Park with an estimated 10 million visitors each year. The town is within easy reach of the cities of Manchester and Leeds, both of which lie less than 30 minutes away by train, and only an hour's journey from Manchester International Airport.
