The Laboratory of Innovative Hydraulics and Automation (IHA) at Tampere University (TAU), Finland, will host the 18th Scandinavian International Conference on Fluid Power, SICFP23, May 30 – June 1, 2023. The conference is arranged on a biannual basis alternating between Tampere University and Linköping University. Right now, fluid power is in an exciting stage of transformation – from the perspective of digitalization, the use of artificial intelligence, automation, and sustainability.
The SICFP is a forum for exchanging information on the latest developments in off-road machinery, robotics, and other applications of fluid power from industry and academia.
All manuscripts are offered the opportunity to go through a peer-review process to guarantee scientific soundness. Deadline for submission of abstracts is May 30; notification of acceptance is June 30 and complete manuscripts are due October 30. Abstracts of no more than 500 words should state the purpose, result, and conclusions of the proposed papers with supporting figures where appropriate. The abstracts are submitted through the online registration system of the conference. More detailed information is available on the conference website.
Topics for submission include:
- Twin transition technologies (zero-emission, digitalization)
- Novel drives, transmissions, and actuators
- Efficient and intelligent components and systems (control, design, simulation, modeling)
- Predictive analytics (monitoring, diagnosis)
- Noise and vibration
- Digital and switched fluid power systems
- Functional safety and safety of intended functions
The conference will be organized and hosted by Innovative Hydraulics and Automation (IHA) in the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences at Tampere University (TAU), Finland. Supporting hosts will be the Global Fluid Power Society (GFPS) and the Finnish cluster Sustainable Industry X (SIX).
“Fluid power and automation are one of the Laboratory’s priority research areas. Our main research areas include sustainable drive systems and actuators, autonomous heavy machinery, and the robotic control of working machines,” said Tatiana Minav, Professor and Conference Chairperson. “In fluid power research, we are following three principles: interdisciplinary research, the bridging of theory and practice, and cooperation with industry.
Tampere has made a name for itself as a major Nordic congress destination, particularly since the inauguration of Tampere Hall two decades ago. The city’s excellent infrastructure and services meet the needs of even the most demanding congress delegate,” Minav said in her call for papers. The SICFP23 conference will be held in Tampere Hall, which is a leading conference facility in Finland and a major conference and concert center in Scandinavia. Tampere Hall hosts over 20 international conferences every year.”
