Welcome from the Chairs

The booming economic development in Asia, particularly the leading manufacturing industries from auto-mobile, machinery, computer, communication, consumer product, flat panel display to semiconductor and micro/nano areas have attracted intense attention among universities, research institutions and many industrial corporations. This conference aims to provide a broad international forum for world researchers, engineers, and professionals working in the areas of manufacturing to discuss and exchange various scientific, technical and management aspects across the wide spectrum of the society.

The theme of the conference is set as smart manufacturing, focusing on new and emerging technologies. Papers with innovative idea or research results in all aspects of advanced manufacture are encouraged to submit. This conference is must attentive towards strong interactions among researchers disseminating their high quality research results.

We are delighted to invite you to submit your paper in ICAM 2016.

Excellent papers will be recommended to Journal Inventions and Applied Science, and the peer review process will be organized and managed by MDPI.
