The advisory board and organizing committee monitor the progress of COVID-19 related measures and instructions by the Dutch authorities closely. For the time being we are still hopeful that the intended conference dates are possible and that we all can meet like we do every two years.

 In the event that we need to cancel, postpone or go online we will inform everybody via this website, the DSPE / Brainport Industries newsletter and email (registered participants/contributors). Registration fees will be 100% refunded (cancellation), converted into a voucher for the new conference dates (postponement) or partially refunded (online conference).

Target Group

The conference is targeted at companies and professionals that are member of:

  • DSPE (please visit for last minute membership registration)
  • Brainport Industries
  • Mechatronics Contact Groups (MCG) and MSKE
  • Selected companies/academia

Max of 25 PhD candidates are welcome too, but they must submit an abstract.

Conference Fee

The fee for the all-in arrangement (incl. book of abstracts, lunches, conference dinner, social event, hotel, fitness, swimming pool and breakfast) amounts to EUR 750 (excluding tax). PhD candidates (max 25) only pay EUR 450 (excluding taks).

Please note that the number of participants is limited to 250 and that priority is given to professionals that contribute a paper, poster or demo. Next to that, the sequence of registration is leading.
