This yearly international conference was initiated as a modest one day workshop on hydraulic pumps in 1988. Quickly the current three day format was adopted and with year-on-year growth and the partnership with the ASME established in 2008, the Bath/ASME Symposium for Fluid Power and Motion Control is now one of the most recognised conferences in its field.

On this page we want to give an overview of noteworthy awards presented during the symposium. You can also download past proceedings and read about the upcoming symposium.
