ISMB: Trip to France and Congrats to Anvar

Anvar Khamitov, Nathan Petersen, and Eric Severson traveled to Lyon, France to attend the 18th International Symposium on Magnetic Bearings in July. In between sampling the local gastronomy, Anvar and Nathan presented their research on magnetic levitation at the conference and Eric gave a plenary talk on bearingless motors. Anvar’s paper was selected as one of three to win the Best Student Paper award from the conference (congratulations Anvar!)
