euspen’s international conference and exhibition provides a leading forum for industrialists and academics alike to review the best of world-wide industrial innovation, progressive research and technology developments. Delegates will gain an insight into the precision engineering and nanotechnology priorities of Europe’s leading industrial nation.

This event offers the possibility to see latest advances in traditional precision engineering fields such as metrology, ultra precision machining, additive and replication processes, precision mechatronic systems & control and precision cutting processes. Furthermore, topics will be addressed covering robotics and automation, Industry 4.0 for precision manufacturing, Precision design in large scale applications and applications of precision engineering in biomedical sciences.

The organising commitee and local hosts for euspen‘s 19th International Conference and Exhibition is Dr Harald Bosse, PTB, DE, Prof Hans N. Hansen, Technical University of Denmark, DK,  Prof. Enrico Savio, University of Padova, IT; Prof. José Yagüe-Fabra, University of Zaragoza, ES; Harkaitz Urreta, IK4-Ideko, ES

Submission of abstracts

Abstracts are expected to describe original work, previously unpublished and should indicate new and significant advances and their importance. Initially short abstracts comprising of approximately 300 words in length should be submitted online using the below links.

Following review of short abstracts, authors will be provided with instructions for submitting extended abstracts of up to four A4 pages. On acceptance of extended abstracts, authors are notified of presentation mode (poster/oral). All papers accepted into the conference proceedings are included in Elsevier’s citation index and will also be indexed on to euspen’s Knowledge Base which is indexed via Google Scholar. The final decision on acceptance of all papers is made by the Editor and International Scientific Committee of the conference.

The invitation to submit an abstract does not constitute an offer to pay travel, accommodation or registration costs associated with the conference. Similarly, no speaker fee is paid to successful participants. All speakers must register for the conference and transfer registration fee. In specific cases the organising committee reserves the right to deviate from the standard procedure.

Delegate Registration
The Precision Engineering community is quite small and the euspen annual event is a great way to make and maintain contact with world-leading experts in the field, many of whom offer highly relevant tutorial sessions at the conferences. We at Cranfield Precision specialise in the design and manufacture of high precision machine systems, it would be unthinkable for us not to take advantage of the technical program, networking and educational opportunities on offer at euspen conferences. Since around 2011, we have been exhibitors at the annual conference exhibition, we have found this to be an excellent way of making contact with new and existing customers. We can trace the initial contact made with many of our current and past customers back to the euspen conference and exhibition, so the cost of attending and exhibiting has paid for itself many times over.
Mark Stocker, Cranfield Precision
With over 400 attendees focused on precision engineering, exhibiting at the Annual Conference & exhibition organised by euspen is vital to getting our message to the right people. The ultimate benefit to attending is the people you meet. Networking with industry experts willing to discuss ideas and offer suggestions to those difficult projects waiting for you back home. These conversations lead to treasured relationships with talented precision engineers you can consult when difficult questions arise.
Byron Knapp, Professional Instruments
