The objective of the conference is to provide an opportunity to exchange high quality, recent information on development, design and research in the field of hydraulics and pneumatics. The conference aims to bring industrial engineers together with researchers in fluid power and present news from research and interesting industrial applications of the fluid power systems (FPS). The main topics of the conference are as follows:

  • Hydraulic systems in production equipments
  • Hydraulic systems for mobile applications
  • Hydraulics and pneumatics in biomechanics and biomedical engineering
  • Development in hydraulic elements: pumps, valves
  • Pneumatic systems and their applications
  • Pneumatic components and their innovation
  • Fluid power in automotive applications
  • Electronics and fluid power systems, mechatronics, application of artificial intelligence in FPS
  • FPS modelling, simulation and computational problems and tools by the development and design of the fluid power components
  • University and professional education in fluid power systems branch
  • Hydraulic measurements

Guided tour in the Old town (2nd June 2016)

The Charles bridge is the famoust historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague. Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished in the beginning of the 15th century. The bridge is decorated by a continuous alley of 30 statues and statuaries, most of them Baroque-style, originally erected around 1700.

The Clementinum is a historic complex of buildings in Prague housing the National Library. Its history can be traced back to the 11th century and is closely related to monasticism - first a Dominican monastery was built there, later transformed into a Jesuit college - the third largest college in the world.

The Old town square is a historic square in the Old Town quarter of Prague. Featuring various architectural styles including the gothic Týn Church and baroque St. Nicholas Church, the square is an oasis for travelers wearied by Prague's narrow streets. Among many churches, tourists may find the Astronomical Clock on this square, while the tower at the Old Town Hall offers a panoramic view of Old Town shop.

The Astronomical clock is a medieval astronomical clock located at the Old Town square in Prague. The clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still working.

The Jewish quarter is a town quarter and the smallest cadastral area of Prague, formerly the Jewish ghetto of the town. Eventhough most of the quarter was demolished between 1893 and 1913, many historical buildings and monuments have been preserved: Franz Kafka's birthplace, High Synagogue, Pinkas Synagogue (16th century synagogue, now a memorial to Holocaust victims), Old Jewish Cemetery (15th-18th century cemetery. Europe's oldest surviving Jewish cemetery), Old New Synagogue (13th century Gothic synagogue).
