Target group

The International Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine Science, IFToMM for short, was founded in 1969 and is one of the largest international associations in the field of theoretical and practical research into mechanisms and machines and their application in industry and practice. Through its international networking, IFToMM offers young researchers and developers in particular an ideal platform to cooperate with colleagues from all over the world in this promising field.

Germany, Austria and Switzerland have traditionally always played an active role at all levels of the IFToMM's research areas. Mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, information technology and microtechnology are also core competencies of the industries of these three countries. The purpose of this conference is to make these activities more visible to the community of German-speaking scientists, while providing a forum for the presentation and discussion of research projects and research hypotheses in a collegial atmosphere. In addition, it is intended to provide young scholars with an opportunity for better networking and for identifying collaborative projects and finding partners in their own language area.
