On September 14 and 15 the DSPE Conference Special Edition was held at the premises of  “The Royal Netherlands Air Force Historic Flight”. Subjects included societal and research challenges such as the energy transition, thermal and materials behavior,  the boundaries of Moore’s law, photonics and the fundamental backgrounds of animal /human and thus robotic motion. Also interesting applications in the different areas of interest ranged from ultraprecision position measurement up to specialized robot applications  for disaster management. The conference started with a tour on the premises in-between the airplanes, lightweight constructions and all sorts of sophisticated engines of the radial, opposed piston, in-line and v-type. The enthusiasm of the volunteers was very contagious and boosted to the informal atmosphere during the conference!! Thanks for the organization to Adrian Rankers and Annemarie Schrauwen plus of course all others contributors!!!
