Sponsored jointly by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the University of Bath, this international symposium provides a forum for leading-edge activities in the field of fluid power and motion control. The Symposium should be of great interest and value to all practitioners and researchers in the fluid power, power transmission and motion control community. The Symposium will include the Koski Lecture, presented by the 2019 Koski medal awardee. FPMC is held in the USA and at the University of Bath, UK on alternating years. The 2019 venue is the Lido Beach Resort in Sarasota, Florida, USA. 

The ASME Fluid Power Systems Technology Division (FPST) and University of Bath Centre for Power Transmission and Motion Control (PTMC) invite papers in the following topics:

  • Drives, transmissions and actuators
  • Components and systems
  • Efficient and intelligent systems
  • Modeling and simulation
  • Control
  • Smart fluids and materials
  • Fault analysis and diagnosis
  • Noise and vibration
  • System design
  • Digital and switched fluid power systems
