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 6-9, 2019
  • Location: Sarasota, Florida (USA)

The Fluid Power Systems & Technology Division (FPST) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the University of Bath's Centre for Power Transmission and Motion Control (PTMC) invite you to our international symposium on fluid power and motion control.

Our annual symposium is a great opportunity to bring together practitioners and researchers in the fluid power transmission and motion control community. It includes technical presentations and a keynote speech given by the the 2019 winner of the prestigious Robert E Koski medal. You can also read about past award winners and download past proceedings.
