CCEFP Summit

The CCEFP is host to regular occurring networking events for attendees to meet one-on-one with industry supporters, faculty and student researchers, and engage with industry colleagues.  The next Summit will be held in conjunction with the ASME/Bath Symposium on Fluid Power and Motion Control (October 16-19) in Sarasota, Florida.

The CCEFP Summit (October 19-20) will be co-located with ASME/Bath FPMC at the Lido Beach Resort.  As a convenience to our attendees, we have arranged to have all CCEFP-funded projects presented during the ASME/Bath FPMC technical program on Thursday, October 19.

The ASME/Bath FPMC regular single-day conference rate is $650 (or $780 after September 12). CCEFP has negotiated a reduced rate of $350 for CCEFP industry supporters.  Discounted registrations are limited to the first 40 attendees. Sign up quickly!
