Scandinavian International Conference on Fluid Power (SICFP) 2023

30.5.-1.6.2023, Tampere, Finland

About the congress

The Laboratory of Innovative Hydraulics and Automation (IHA) at Tampere University, Finland, will host the 18th Scandinavian International Conference on Fluid Power, SICFP’23, May 30 -June 1, 2023.

The conference is arranged on a biannual basis alternating between Tampere University (TAU) and Linköping University (LiU). The SICFP conference is a forum for exchanging information on the latest developments in off-road machinery, robotics and other applications of fluid power from industry and academia. Fluid power is in an exciting stage of transformation, from perspective of digitalization, intelligence, automation, and sustainability point of view.

I look forward to seeing you in Tampere in May 2023.

Tatiana Minav
Chairman of SICFP23

The Laboratory of Innovative Hydraulics and Automation is placed in the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences at Tampere University. Fluid power automation is one of the Laboratory’s priority research areas. We develop fluid power and automation technologies to minimise environmental impacts through automation and intelligent solutions. Our main research areas include sustainable drive systems and actuators, autonomous heavy machinery, and the robotic control of working machines. In fluid power research, we are following three principles: interdisciplinary research, the bridging of theory and practice, and cooperation with industry.
