in Dresden

Welcome to the 10th International Fluid Power Conference!


The 10th International Conference on Fluid Power (IFK) will be held in Dresden from March 8 - 10, 2016 and we are proud to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The IFK is one of the world’s most significant scientific conferences on fluid power control technology and systems. It offers a common platform for the presentation and discussion of trends and innovations to manufacturers, users and scientists.

The theme of the 10th IFK will be “Smart Fluid Power”, covering a growing trend in the fluid power industry. Through its great versatility fluid power has nearly limitless possibilities for the integration of fluid-mechatronic systems into intelligent networks.

The IFK thrives on interesting and qualitative scientific contributions. You are invited to submit your newest research and discuss your findings in front of a wide technical audience during the 10th IFK.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in March 2016!
