CALL FOR PAPERS AND SPECIAL SESSION ORGANIZATION:
We are pleased to invite you to UMTIK-2014, the 16th International Conference on Machine Design and Production, to take place between June 30 -July 3, 2014, in Izmir, third largest city of Türkiye by its population and its economy (www.izmir.bel.tr/en/). As has been in the previous UMTIK Conferences, UMTIK-2014 aims to constitute a forum of prominent academics and professionals from all over the world to discuss the latest advancements, emerging technologies and systems in design and manufacturing of machines, manufacturing systems and technologies.
The last day of the Conference will be organized by Prof. Dr. Erhan Budak (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Prof. Dr. İsmail Lazoğlu (email@example.com) as "The Machining Day" on July 3rd. If you are interested in organizing tutorials and/or workshops and/or submit papers on this topic please write to them. Further proposals of new tutorial and workshop topics from the academia and industry for the rest of the conference are also invited and encouraged.
The scope of the conference includes (but is not limited to) the below topics:
Design of Production Processes
Design of Machines and their Applications
Engineering Design Methodology and Design Models
Novel Trends in Engineering Design
Modeling and Analysis of Failure in Mechanical Systems
Mechanical Design and Production of MEMS
Advanced Materials in Machine Design and Manufacturing
Modeling and Simulation of Manufacturing Systems and Processes
Sustainability in Design and Manufacturing
Flexible and Distributed Manufacturing Systems
Intelligent Systems in Production
Emerging Technologies in Design and Manufacturing
Creativity and Innovation in Design
Smart and Intelligent Product Design
Sensor Technologies and Networks in Design
Engineering Education in Design and Production
All from academia and industry willing to disseminate, share and advance their knowledge and expertise are welcome to participate in this forum as authors or audience members.
With this call, we encourage you to submit your ideas about special sessions that you would like to organize on topics of your choice within the main frame of the conference. In the past, these sessions brought academia and industry experts together on selected topics and were found successful in forming new acquaintances and renewing old ones for possible future collaborations. The special sessions which are already announced in our web site (www.umtik.com) are "Optimization of Mechanical Systems and Manufacturing Processes", "Design Science and Timeaxis Design" and "Recent Progress in Advanced High Strength Steels Stamping". You can submit your manuscripts related with those topics directly to the organizers of those special sessions. If you want to organize a special session on another topic, you should send your proposal with your short CV to the Organizing Committee for approval. Organizers of special sessions will be responsible for collection, evaluation and editing of the papers in the conference format and submitting them to the Organizing Committee within the announced deadline. The organizers are also expected to chair their special sessions.
The venue for UMTIK-2014 is the Wyndham Izmir Ozdilek Hotel (www.cpizmir.com), located at the sea side with a panoramic view of Izmir Bay. The conference participants staying at the Wyndham Izmir Özdilekcan take advantage of the spa pools of the hotel, scheduled free shuttle service to/from airport & different points of city.
