The Machine Design and Tribology Division of the JSME is pleased to invite you to participate in the JSME International Conference on Motion and Power Transmissions, MPT2017-Kyoto. The Conference is preceded by the last MPT2009-Sendai, and counts fifth time since 1981 held in Tokyo.
 Although the power transmission technology has a long history, recent technical demand for gearing is boosting in respect to environmental protection, or high performance. To this end, MPT- 2017 will absolutely give the opportunity to exchange the up-to- date technical information and to strengthen the partnership at this occasion. The conference covers various topics related to kinematical motion and power transmissions.
 We are happy to hold this conference in Kyoto, the historical key spot of Japan, with warm hospitality. Please do not miss this opportunity to visit Japan.
