Welcome message

The first International Conference on Fluid Power Transmission and Control was held in 1985. Since then the conference was held consecutively every four years. Now we look forward to the seventh meeting in Hangzhou. The conference will offer a great opportunity for the participants to exchange their innovations, new research ideas and results, etc. Together, new trends of development in the field of fluid power transmission and control will be spelt out.

Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang Province, is one of the most beautiful scenic places in China, with convenient flight routines to Hong Kong, Beijing and other main cities in China, and within one and half hours of highway drive or express train from Shanghai. As a tourist you may enjoy her breathtaking scenery and the traditional cultures of southeast China.

Overview of Hangzhou

Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang province and its political, economic and cultural center. With its famous natural beauty and cultural heritages, Hangzhou is one of China's most attractive tourist venues. The City, the southern terminus of the ancient Grand Canal, is located in the Yangtze Delta and 180 kilometers from Shanghai. The West Lake is undoubtedly the most renowned feature of Hangzhou, noted for the scenic beauty that blends naturally with many famous historical and cultural sites. In this scenic area, Solitary Hill, the Mausoleum of General Yue Fei, the Six Harmonies Pagoda and the Ling Yin Temple are the most frequently visited attractions. The "Ten West Lake Prospects" have been specially selected to give the visitor outstanding views of the lake, mountains and monuments.

Hangzhou attracts more than 20 million domestic and foreign tourists yearly. Above is paradise, below is Suzhou and Hangzhou expresses peoples indeed praise to Hangzhou. In the Yuan Dynasty, the famous Italian traveler Marco Polo described this city as the finest and most splendid city in the world.

Introduction to IMCE

The Institute of Mechatronic Control Engineering (IMCE) of Zhejiang University is the companion organization of the State Key Laboratory of Fluid Power Transmission and Control (SKLoFP). During the past few decades, the Institute and the Lab have made themselves the leading research organization in technology of fluid power systems in China under the leadership of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Yongxiang Lu, the President of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). The institute currently has twenty professors, eleven associate professors and senior engineers. It is active in researches on fluid power transmission and control, mechatronics, and automation. In recent years, major research results have been achieved in electro-hydraulic control, electro-pneumatic control, computer applications, condition monitoring and fault diagnosis, applied fluid mechanics, robot techniques, new materials and sensors, modern control and information technology. Some experimental equipment for in-depth researches has been acquired and built. In the future, the institute will continue to strengthen its research ability and capacity. Among the above mentioned areas, technologies in hydro-mechatronic systems and devices with high performance and large-power transmission and automation will be focused.
