This volume contains selected papers presented at the 12th International Conference on vibrations in rotating machines, SIRM, which took place February 15-17, 2017 at the campus of the Graz University of Technology. By all meaningful measures, SIRM was a great success, attracting about 120 participants (ranging from senior colleagues to graduate students) from 14 countries. Latest trends in theoretical research, development, design and machine maintenance have been discussed between machine manufacturers, machine operators and scientific representatives in the field of rotor dynamics. SIRM 2017 included thematic sessions on the following topics: Rotordynamics, Stability, Friction, Monitoring, Electrical Machines, Torsional Vibrations, Blade Vibrations, Balancing, Parametric Excitation, and Bearings. The papers struck an admirable balance between theory, analysis, computation and experiment, thus contributing a richly diverse set of perspectives and methods to the audience of the conference.
