The MoSS conference series meetings bring together experts from various fields: structural mechanics, thermomechanics, dynamics, electrodynamics, vibration and control, structural health monitoring, artificial intelligence, and materials science to discuss the current state of research as well as rising trends and direction for future research in the area of mechanics of slender structures with particular emphasis on intelligent vibration control and the creation of systems with damage awareness in the modern highrise vertical transportation environment.
It is organized jointly with the Institute of Physics and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, supported by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. The first two meetings took place in 2004 and 2006 in Northampton. The third event, the MoSS 2008 conference, was organized in collaboration with the ASME Technical Committee on Vibration and Sound in Baltimore , U.S.A. This was followed by the MoSS2010 event which was organized and took place in San Sebastian, Spain. Most recently, the MoSS2013 event was organized in Harbin, China, hosted by Harbin Institute of Technology. The proceedings are available online.
Jointly with the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Lifts Group, he initiated a new conference series: the Symposium on Lift and Escalator Technologies. This symposium has become an annual event, which brings together experts from within the field of vertical transportation (VT) with peerreviewed papers on the subject of their research being presented and published.
