The IFPE 2008 Technical Conference will include a new Electronic Controls Symposium to complement its highly regarded Technology and Design Program, which focuses on all aspects of power transmission and motion control. The conference has issued a Call for Papers, with abstracts for both segments to be submitted by July 2, 2007.
The IFPE 2008 Technical Conference will be held March 12-14, 2008 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA and will examine all areas of technology, research, design, new developments, materials and case histories. The conference is organized by the National Conference on Fluid Power, and papers presented will be published as the “Proceedings of the 51st National Conference on Fluid Power.”
Topic areas for conference papers include all power transmission (systems and simulation/analysis), fluid power/motion control (components and fluid power circuits), electrical and mechanical power transmission (electric motors, brakes, clutches, other components), hydraulic fluids, reliability, international standards, new materials and electronic controls.
The conference will be held in conjunction with IFPE, the International Exposition for Power Transmission, to be held March 11-15, 2008. IFPE 2008 will be the largest event in North America for the motion control industry.
“The technical conference is a cornerstone of the IFPE experience that provides additional value to show attendees. They have access to international experts discussing the latest product innovations and applications as well as the opportunity to visit with manufacturers exhibiting the latest technologies, products and services related to power transmission and motion control,” stated Linda Western, Executive Director of the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), IFPE’s co-owner.
IFPE 2008 will be co-located with CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2008, which will be the largest international gathering place for the construction industries in 2008. The shows are expected to attract more than 125,000 visitors from around the world.
