From our point of view, these manuscripts are the indispensable documentation to refer to during and after the event. About 2,200 conference presentations have been published on 10,000 pages of conference proceedings since the launch event in 1988, since 1998 also in a digital version. That’s indeed a huge fund of innovations and scientific results – and this fund is not a hidden treasure!
Most of them are still available! We even intend to increase this availability: For the first time, the digital version of these proceedings will be published in cooperation with the VDE Verlag GmbH (VDE Publishing House), now. Hereby, the 2018 manuscripts will be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library to ensure an international visibility and a high value for the citation index. This is aimed at providing authors an additional incentive to take the efforts of preparing a manuscript also in the future.
In 2018 we are going to add quite a number of excellent new ones: In total 141 conference contributions, 85 oral presentations and 56 posters are portraying the state of the art technology and indicating future trends. Oral sessions are held in the following fields:
- Active Vibration Control/Active Noise Control
- Actuator Control
- Aerospace Applications
- (Bio-)Medical Applications
- ERF/MRF Actuators
- Haptic/Tactile Applications
- Low-power Electromagnetic Actuators
- Magnetostrictive/MSM Actuators
- Microactuators/Microfluid Handling Devices
- Piezoelectric Actuators
- Piezoelectric Actuator Applications
- Polymer Actuators
- Shape Memory Actuators
Including all reviews, a 2018 conference participant has the chance to listen to as many as 38 well selected oral contributions. As usual, all the other contributions, including the posters, will be properly documented in the proceedings. We hope that the conflicts of interest will have been minimised by a well-selected placement of the sessions in the general schedule.
ACTUATOR is not only a brilliant place to present and discuss the latest results in the area of new actuators, it also an excellent place for networking within the worldwide experts’ community present at the conference venue, f
