For almost 30 years Bremen has been the city of actuators. The International Conference on New Actuators, ACTUATOR, was established in the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, Germany, in 1988. Ever since it has been attracting multitudes of leading experts, suppliers and users in the field of new actuators and low-power electromagnetic drives from all over the world.
With about 400 participants (50 % from industry) and 200 conference contributions ACTUATOR became the major event in the field of miniaturised drives. Every two years it offers an open minded forum for new visions and innovative products based on smart materials. Quite a number of ideas presented here have been successfully established on the market.
The next event, ACTUATOR 2018, will be held from 25 – 27 June 2018. In response to the Call for Papers published end of August 2017 we received 156 submissions, 10 more than in 2016. The international Programme Committee selected 85 of them for oral presentation.
A schedule including detailed information on the 2018 Conference Programme is online now. The print version will follow soon.
For the first time, the digital version of the conference proceedings will be published by the VDE Verlag GmbH (VDE Publishing House).The manuscripts will also be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library to ensure an international visibility and a high value for the citation index.
You are invited to disseminate this information to colleagues and business partners. Interested parties are also invited to join the ACTUATOR Interest Group on LinkedIn. In this forum we will keep you informed about the current schedules and other relevant topics.
