FPMC: Bath/ASME symposium on fluid power and motion control

Our leading symposium covers current and future trends in fluid power and motion control for academia and industry.

  • Date: October 19-21, 2021
  • University of Minnesota, USA (online)

The Fluid Power Systems & Technology Division (FPST) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and University of Bath Centre for Power Transmission and Motion Control (PTMC) invite you to this international symposium on fluid power and motion control. The Bath/ASME Symposium on Fluid Power and Motion Control (FPMC) has been an annual event since 1988, and in the past decade, it has been being held in alternate years at Bath, UK and in the USA.

The international Symposium will be of great interest to all practitioners and researchers in the fluid power, power transmission and motion control community. The Symposium will include technical presentations and a keynote speech given by the 2021 recipient of the prestigious Robert E. Koski Medal. Due to Covid-19, the 2021 FPMC, will be held virtually.

You can read about past awards and download past proceedings.
