IFPE 2011 is pleased to announce the co-location of the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power’s (CCEFP) Annual Meeting in conjunction with the exposition. CCEFP will also present research papers at the 52nd National Conference on Fluid Power (NCFP) being held at the show.
CCEFP is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center charged with conducting pioneering research in emerging technologies and training the next generation of engineers to be leaders in innovation. It is one of only 15 such research centers in the United States.
IFPE 2011 will be held March 22-26, 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA and is the leading international exposition and technical conference dedicated to the integration of fluid power with other technologies for power transmission and motion control applications.
Since its inception in 2006, CCEFP has served as a catalyst to foster collaboration between academia and industry, with the goal of accelerating fluid power technology advancement and transforming results into real-world applications.
“The participation of CCEFP offers IFPE attendees a higher level of information sharing than ever before with direct access to some of the ‘best and the brightest’ minds involved in hydraulic and pneumatic technology research,” stated IFPE Show Director Melissa Magestro.
“CCEFP participants will benefit by learning the latest research from CCEFP and overseas researchers and from exposure to the full range of fluid power technology solutions from all over the world,” stated CCEFP Director Kim Stelson.
CCEFP’s Annual Meeting will bring together researchers, educators, students and industry leaders to listen to and discuss research and education project presentations. Right after the meeting, posters describing CCEFP research will also be presented by Center students.
