The International Fluid Power Conference (IFK) is one of the world’s most significant scientific conferences on fluid power control technology and systems. It offers a common platform for the presentation and discussion of trends and innovations to manufacturers, users, and scientists. The 12th IFK will convene March 9 to 11, 2020 in Dresden, Germany.
The first day the symposium is dedicated to presentations focused on methodology and fundamental research. The following two days will offer a wide variety of application and technology orientated papers about the latest state of the art in fluid power. It is this combination that makes the IFK a unique and an excellent forum for the exchange of academic research and industrial application experience. A simultaneously ongoing exhibition offers the opportunity to share product information and network with manufacturers.
The theme of the 12th IFK will be “Fluid Power—Future Technology!” Scheduled topics will enable the development of 5G-ready, cost-efficient, and demand-driven structures, as well as individual decentralized drives. Additional topics include real-time data exchange for applying numerous predictive maintenance strategies, which will significantly increase the availability of fluid power systems and their elements and ensure their improved lifetime performance.
The IFK thrives on interesting scientific contributions of high quality. Event officials encourage sharing of technical research and discussion of findings in front of a wide technical audience during the 12th IFK.
