The University of Bath and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) will hold their symposium on Fluid Power & Motion Control (FPMC 2013) at the Lido Beach Resort in Sarasota, Florida October 6 to 9, 2013.The international conference provides a forum for leading‐edge activities in the field of hydraulics, pneumatics, and motion control technologies.

Co-chairs Monika Ivantysynova, of Purdue University, and Kim Stelson, of the University of Minnesota, say the symposium should be of great interest and value to all practitioners and researchers in the fluid power, power transmission, and motion control communities.  

FPMC is held in the USA and at the University of Bath, UK, in alternating years. Click here to visit the event's web page. The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) will also hold its annual meeting at the Lido Beach Resort in conjunction with FPMC 2013. A separate registration fee applies for the CCEFP event. Approximately 75 papers are scheduled; following is a list of the prgram:
