The 11th International Fluid Power Conference will take place from March 19th to 21st, 2018 in Aachen. We cordially invite you to Aachen and hope you attend this conference to exchange technical expertise and talk with friends in the field. As one of the world’s largest conferences dealing with Fluid Power it gives users, manufacturers and scientists an ideal forum to discuss relevant issues in the fields of hydraulic and pneumatic drives, controls and systems.
The Symposium, scheduled for the first day, aims to present fundamental work and research conducted by academic institutions. The wide range of application and technology oriented topics during the conference will be presented in three parallel sessions. Further scientific work will also be on display during the poster session.
Additionally, the conference gives companies the opportunity to participate in an exhibition, thereby allowing them to present new products and services to a broad audience.
The official opening reception will take place on the first day after the symposium at the exhibition area in the Eurogress foyer. The highlight of the social programme is the conference banquet on Tuesday evening. Attendees will enjoy dinner in the coronation room located in the town hall followed by a relaxing conclusion in the Aula Carolina.
