The conference is assembled to present and promote wide-ranging research of the following areas but not limited to:
Materials Development, Analysis, Modeling, Testing (this includes ferrous/non-ferrous materials, Polymer, Ceramic, Metal matrix composites, Fiber reinforced composites, Nano composites, Bio composites, Porous and cellular materials, coatings and thin film).
Manufacturing Practices, Process, Simulations and Methodologies (including forming, joining, assembling, lean manufacturing) Advanced manufacturing processes, including mechanical, chemical and thermal processes, additive manufacturing, advanced embossing, casting, forming and molding processes at all scales, Manufacturing process monitoring, control and automation, Tribology and wear issues relevant to manufacturing processes, welding, joining etc. All submitted papers should report original, previously unpublished research results, experimental or theoretical, and will be peer-reviewed. Articles submitted to the conference should meet these criteria and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
