About the Journal

The conference is arranged on a biannual basis alternating between Linköping University (LiU) and Tampere Technical University, (TUT). The SICFP conference is a forum for exchanging information on the latest developments in fluid power. It is also a forum for socializing and networking among colleagues and friends both from industry and academia.

Papers and presentations will be from a wide range of fields of fluid power, such as industrial automation, machines, aircraft, mining, forest, and offshore equipment, etc. Fluid power is in an exciting stage of transformation, as requirements on efficiency and environmental compatibility are having a real impact on component and system design. Furthermore, there is an increasing attention to combinations with electrical power systems that may give possibilities to new and more efficient concepts. Increased level of intelligence, sensors, connectivity, and communication in machines, will have great influence on efficiency, operations, and business models.
