The 14th International Fluid Power Colloquium (14th IFK) will take place in Dresden, Germany, from March 19 to 21, 2024. As one of the world’s most important conferences in the field of fluid-mechatronic systems, the IFK has become a central forum for international exchange in the fluid power industry. During the conference and the accompanying technical exhibition, users, manufacturers, and scientists will have the opportunity to present innovations and discuss development trends. The IFK is headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Weber (Chair of Fluidtronics, TU Dresden) and has been held every 2 years since 1998, alternating between Aachen and Dresden.
The thematic focus of the conference will be on sustainable productivity of fluid power applications. The challenges of the novel system architectures must necessarily be overcome. The resulting solutions will help to master the technical and social tasks of tomorrow. Increasing digitization in all areas and the permanently growing demand for efficiency are opening up new opportunities for fluid technology and at the same time presenting it with new tasks. In addition, alternative fluids in particular and their conditioning in the drive system are becoming increasingly important.
Registration for the 14th IFK will start at the end of October 2023. We kindly ask you to be patient until then and look forward to seeing you there.
Call for Papers
The IFK is dedicated to practical topics in stationary and mobile hydraulics and pneumatics. Detailed considerations of hydraulic, pneumatic, actuator and sensor components as well as fluid technology fundamentals will be presented. Particular importance is given to increasing energy efficiency and the necessary trends such as digitization, virtualization and data-based applications. Contributions on special applications of fluid technology such as medicine, robotics and the food industry are also welcome.
The IFK team around Prof. Weber is looking forward to interested participants and exciting contributions from all competence and application areas of fluid-mechatronics!
