Industry and Academia Invited to Submit Presentations for FPIRC16

NFPA and the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) invite both industry and academic researchers to submit a short abstract of their work for consideration as a presentation at the 2016 Fluid Power Innovation & Research Conference (FPIRC16). Presentations should address fundamental or applied research or innovative development in fluid power or closely related fields.

FPIRC is the premier conference for fluid power industry and academic research in North America. It connects industry to university resources and talent through technical sessions, networking opportunities, laboratory tours, and panel discussions on the technologies and workforce skills needed to continue growing the fluid power industry. It will be held October 10-12, 2016, at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis in Minneapolis, Minnesota. FPIRC16 is co-located with the 2016 ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Conference, held October 12-14, 2016.
