is announced for 25 – 27 June 2018 / The Call for Papers is open now!

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. The current Call for Papers will be open until 30 November 2017.

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.
