Welcome to the 17th Scandinavian International Conference on Fluid Power.
The Division of Fluid and Mechatronic Systems (Flumes) at Linköping University, Sweden, is hosting the 17th Scandinavian International Conference on Fluid Power, SICFP’21, May 31-June 2, 2021. The conference is arranged on a biannual basis alternating between Linköping University (LiU) and Tampere Technical University, (TUT). The SICFP conference is a forum for exchanging information on the latest developments in fluid power. It is also a forum for socializing and networking among colleagues and friends both from industry and academia.
Papers are welcome in the wide range of fields of fluid power, such as industrial automation, machines, aircraft, mining, forest, and offshore equipment, etc. Fluid power is in an exciting stage of transformation, as requirements on efficiency and environmental compatibility are having a real impact on component and system design. Furthermore, there is an increasing attention to combinations with electrical power systems that may give possibilities to new and more efficient concepts. Increased level of intelligence, sensors, connectivity and communication in machines, will have a great influence on efficiency, operations and business models. These are areas where papers are particularly welcome. Full papers will be peer reviewed on request and will be indicated as such in the proceedings.
In connection with the conference, we will organize an exhibition where companies can showcase their latest technology. An accompanying persons’ program will be arranged.
After the conference we are planning a trip to Swedish Forestry Expo at Solvalla, Stockholm. This is a new trade fair for commercial, large-scale forestry with machines at center stage. Here you can find the latest trends in the global forest industry, up-date your knowledge of technical innovations from all major manufacturers.
