ACTUATOR Conference in Bremen

is history now!

For 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 up to 430 participants (50 % from industry) and 250 conference contributions ACTUATOR became the major event in the field of miniaturised drives. Every two years it offered 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 last event in Bremen, ACTUATOR 2018, was 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 still online.

After 30 years of ACTUATOR in Bremen the organiser MESSE BREMEN transferred the rights to the
VDE Verband der Elektrotechnik Elektronik Informationstechnik e. V. (Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies).
