The 14th International Conference on Dynamics of Rotating Machines SIRM2021 (original German name: Schwingungen in rotierenden Maschinen) is a series of meetings of representatives of industry and science dealing with problems related to the dynamics of rotating machines. In 2021, the SIRM conference will take place in Gdansk (Poland). Two institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences are jointly organising the conference: the Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery (IMP PAN) and the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research (IPPT PAN).

The purpose of the 14th International Conference SIRM 2021 is to promote vital discussions between machine manufacturers, machine operators and scientific representatives in the field of rotor dynamics. Latest trends in theoretical research, development, design, manufacturing, monitoring and maintenance of machines shall be discussed at the conference. The Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery in Gdansk (IMP PAN) and the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research in Warsaw (IPPT PAN) invite you to attend SIRM 2021, in order to combine science, engineering technology and culture for several days. The organising committee cordially welcomes you to Gdansk and looks forward to seeing you at the conference.
