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

The Symposium will be of great interest and value 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 the 2017 recipient of the prestigious Robert E. Koski Medal.


A poster session will take place for the first time at FPMC2017!

The poster session is open to fluid power research work – free of commercialism, from both academia and industry.

If you are interested in presenting a poster, please submit an abstract here before July 31st, 2017 (400 words limit).

Authors with accepted papers can submit posters only on topics different than their original manuscript submission, unless otherwise instructed by the conference organizers.

Review criteria for acceptance are based on technical content, novelty and relevance to the fluid power field.

Notification of poster acceptance will occur soon after the abstract submission, and in any case not later than August 5th 2017. Details of poster size, formatting, will be included in the acceptance notification.

Please contact the editorial board chairs for any clarification, Eric J. Barth, James Van de Ven.
