hesham, please.
A symposium is just a conference, a meeting.
The article just talks about a conference that gathered Kellett, Wilford and other specialists.
Nowhere in the article does it say that any of these designed the machine in the image.

You really should take into account all the comments made about your posting too hastily... You've done exactly the same for 10 years now and it just goes on and on as if no-one had given you any advice about it! All this random, haphazard posting is not very useful.

Post something when you can positively identify it. When you can't, or when you're not sure, post it in one of the "unknown/unidentified/various" topics. Or send a message to a member who could help you.

This is also something that was explained to you several times.
Your Google Books links always point to pages written in Arab.
This makes navigation impossible to most forum users.
Allow me to re-explain how to do things for all to enjoy your contributions:
  • 1) Remove the ".eg" in the address;
  • 2) Locate the page number ("PA86", here) and remove EVERYTHING that comes after it.
Here's what the proper link for everyone should look like:
