DSPE Conference 2014

2 - 3 September 2014

We are proud to announce the second DSPE conference on precision mechatronics, which will take place on September 2-3, 2014 at the conference location De Ruwenberg in Sint Michielsgestel, The Netherlands.

This conference - by & for technologists, designers and architects in precision mechatronics – is targeted at companies and professionals that are member of:

• Brainport Industries
• Mechatronics contact groups MCG and MSKE
• Selected companies/academia


Cooperation and communication within a professional community contributes to a wider utilization of the community's capabilities and competences and a better positioning of the community in the global market. To continue sharing the available expertise and experience in the field of precision and control technology, the Dutch Society of Precision Engineering (DSPE) has decided to organize the second DSPE conference on precision mechatronics. Next to the presentation of papers, posters and demonstrations, the conference will also provide an atmosphere for networking, technical discussion, and sharing the enthusiasm of working in this challenging field.

Revolution vs. Evolution

This year's theme is 'Revolution vs. Evolution', because progress is always a mix of evolution (optimization) and revolution (disruptive technologies). Therefore it is crucial to learn from each others evolutionary steps, but also discuss the revolutionary steps in requirements, material science, manufacturing science, computer intelligence, design approaches, ... we are facing today and tomorrow.

Areas of interest

Areas of interest include (but are not limited to): pm-stability, disruptive technologies & approaches, additive manufacturing, topology optimization, new materials, design principles, sensors, actuators, metrology, imaging technology, thermal design, vacuum & contamination, motion control, dynamics & acoustics, reliability, energy efficiency, machine specs vs. user needs, new business, value creation, open innovation


4 - 5 Oktober 2016 the next edition will take place in Conferencehotel De Ruwenberg, Sint Michielsgestel
