Thermal effects are regarded as a major contributor to errors on machine tools, on measuring equipment and on work pieces.
Measurement of thermal effects is becoming more important as work piece tolerances decrease, as thermal effects not only use a larger part of the tolerances, but also influence repeatability and long term stability of machine tools, and equipment.

As a consequence, several research groups and industries are working on simulation of thermal effects, in order to finally compensate thermally induced errors, or new help to develop concepts to reduce thermally induced errors.
The intensive on-going work in this area led us to bring together a further internationally-coordinated meeting.

The local hosts and organising committee supporting euspen for this Special Interest Group meeting on Thermal Issues are :- Dr. Theo A.M. Ruijl, MI-Partners Bv, NL; Dr. Josef Mayr, ETH Zurich, CH; Prof. Christian Brecher, WZL, DE and Prof. Steffen Ihlenfeldt, TU Dresden, DE and Fraunhofer IPT, DE

Themes :-

  • Measurement of thermal influences in production equipment, process and product
  • Modelling and model reduction techniques
  • Compensation and correction of thermal effects
  • Design principles for thermally robust production equipment (e.g. Machine Elements, Machine Structures)
  • Test workpieces and assessment

Submission of abstracts

Abstracts are expected to describe original work, previously unpublished and should indicate new and significant advances and their importance. For this meeting the number of pages per abstract is flexible between half a page and up to four A4 pages long. You should use the links above to submit your abstract.

Following review of all abstracts authors will be notified of their presentation mode (poster/oral).  The final decision on acceptance of all papers is made by the Editor and Scientific Committee of the SIG meeting.

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.
