Call for Papers: International Conference on Gears

International Conference on Gears

The 7th International Conference on Gears 2017 will be held in Garching, Munich at the Gear Research Centre (FZG) of the Technical University of Munich from September 13th to 15th, 2017. Supported by national and international associations, the conference brings together over 600 leading experts from the international gear and transmission industry. Presenting a paper gives you the opportunity to take part in this leading international forum and learn about the latest developments and research results in the powertrain industry and academia.

Paper submission of your abstract – topic areas

We would like to invite and encourage you to contribute an abstract and show that there is still room for improvement in the field of gears and transmissions, how gears can contribute to increasing energy efficiency, reducing resource consumption and how new technologies will be incorporated in the powertrain.

Don´t miss out on being part of this unique meeting point for equipment manufacturers, producers and researchers of gear and transmission systems and present your new solutions, latest research results and technical ideas.

Topics include:

  • Design, analysis and simulation of gears and transmissions
  • Industrial application, such transmissions for energy systems or for mobility systems, etc.
  • Manufacturing, e.g, productivity increases with new concepts for machine and manufacturing processes, machine running time or throughput time – balancing of productivity and flexibility
  • Possibilities and potential of plastic gears
  • Testing, e.g. new test methods and/or procedures for lifetime, efficiency and noise behavior

For a full list of conference topics, please download the Call for Papers below.

Be part of the most important international conference in the field of gears and transmission in 2017 to meet, share ideas and learn together.

Submit your abstract now. The deadline for abstract submission is November 4th, 2016

This journal is currently listed in Scopus and Web of Science, with a recognized Impact Factor of 0.250 (Journal Citation Reports®, Thomas Reuters 2015).

Accompanying conferences focus on high-performance plastic gears and gear production

In addition to the conference programme of the International Conference on Gears 2017 the accompanying conferences again offer a deep insight into all aspects of

>> Gear Production 2017

>> High Performance Plastic Gears 2017

Experts in the field of gear manufacturing or plastic gears are invited to contribute a proposal for the call for papers of the International Conference on Gears 2017.

Entrance to the accompanying conferences is free for registered participants of the International Conference on Gears 2017.

Two social events offer excellent networking opportunities

The conference offers many opportunities to meet up with colleagues - old and new - during the breaks. A social evening in the main hall of the university will be held on the second conference day. In addition, we warmly invite you to an external evening event. Let yourself be surprised. The social events are included in the conference attendance fee.
