Over 100 guests from academia and industry made the 3rd International Conference on Thermal Issues in Machine Tools a great success. In three intense conference days, we welcomed researchers from various European countries to give talks, to listen to experts and to have passionate conversations about how to correct or compensate for thermal deformations in machine tools.

The first day of the ICTIMT 2023 started with three keynote speeches by the renowned professors Brecher, Wegener and Ihlenfeldt. Each one outstanding achievers in the research field of thermal machine behavior. Later that day the crowd moved from Dresden Messe to the TU Dresden labs to visit an exhibition of technical solutions prepared by the CRC 96 research community from Dresden, Aachen and Chemnitz. What a great joy it was, to see everybody present his or her long-term results and to discuss different approaches relentlessly even after four and a half hours of in the lab.

The second day was dedicated the presentation of scientific papers which will very soon be published in Springer Nature as the ICTIMT2023 proceedings. In two parallel sessions, talks and Q/As time guarantied high-level scientific exchange; presentation from industrial partners gave inside views in practical applications. All CRC related papers were part of a poster session, which accompanied the participants during breaks. The day concluded with a Gala Dinner at Schloss Albrechtsberg, beautiful guitar music and a great overall atmosphere. Even on the last day, the presenters attracted the crowd to fill the conference hall once again.

We thank all who came out and contributed to these wonderful three days in spring 2023 in Dresden, Germany. The ICTIMT will be back in 2025. Prof. Bambach and his team will welcome the thermal research community at the ETH in Zurich.
