  • Drive technology applications and challenges to bearings
  • Calculation and Bearing dimensioning
  • Life and Durability
  • Energy efficiency
  • Rolling bearing dynamics

After acceptance by the programme committee, 4-page conference materials must be submitted by 22 January, 2018 for selected contri- butions. The presentations will be collected and (if approved by the authors) made available to conference participants in electronic form along with the conference proceedings and full papers which have  already been received. Contributions which present new findings from industrial practice or scientific research, related to open issues and possible solutions in the field of bearings or technical systems with bearings in a well-founded and comprehensible form, may be subjected to a review process following the conference with subsequent  international publication.

Presentations should preferably be given in English. Yet German  presentations are also welcome (simultaneous translation provided). Presentation slides in English only.
