Meeting Keynotes

Precision machines have long been at the forefront of one industrial revolution after another to enable the turning of ideas into the economical production of physical objects.  In all likelihood the emerging Sustainable Revolution could be the start of a new golden age for the planet and humanity.

Whilst there is no shortage of renewable energy systems available at ever-decreasing costs, they are not evolving fast enough to economically transition to a low carbon economy. The purpose of this workshop is thus to bring together people from academia, industry, and government to share experiences with using precision engineering principles to help develop new ideas and manufacturing systems to reduce production and ownership costs.

Areas of interest include automated precision production of components and systems ranging from manufacture of solar cells and panels to their installation and maintenance; to ever larger wind turbines on and offshore including in-situ manufacturing of ever larger elements; to energy storage systems from batteries to hydro power systems.

euspen is delighted to announce its first Special Interest Group Workshop on Precision Engineering for Sustainable Systems.  We are seeking interested parties with suggestions for oral presentations in the technical sessions and commercial sessions in the following renewable energies:-


Wind Storage Solar Oceanic
a.  Actuators, gearing and controls
b.  Blades and materials
c.  Towers

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Abstracts are expected to describe original work, previously unpublished and should indicate new and significant advances and their importance.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

Following review a review of submitted abstracts, authors will be notified of acceptance of presentation mode (poster) no later than 9th August 2019.

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.

Submission deadline: 12th July 2019
