Welcome from the Chair
It is our pleasure to invite you to join the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Machines and Applications (IECMA 2024) after the strong success of the previous annual online conference. IECMA 2024 will be held online from 18 to 20 June 2024.
Machinery and engineering areas play a key role in an ever-increasingly technological society. Transportation, renewable energies, and more efficient buildings are only some of the domains where the intensive application of these systems has been most noticed. In all these applications, efficiency and reliability, automation and control, and advanced manufacturing are of major concern.
The scope of this online conference is to bring together well-known worldwide experts who are currently working on machinery and engineering and to provide an online forum for presenting and discussing new results.
Throughout this event, we aim to cover, among others, the following topics:
S1. Additive Manufacturing
S2. Condition Monitoring and Fault Diagnosis
S3. Automation and Control Systems
S4. Mechatronic and Intelligent Machines
S6. Electrical Machines and Drives
S7. Vehicle Dynamics and Control
S8. Friction and Tribology
All accepted abstracts will be published on the website of the conference. You are required to submit an abstract (minimum 200—maximum 300-word limit). Please see the abstract guidelines in "Instructions for Authors".
After the conference, the participants may submit a full paper to MDPI’s Machines journal. After the review process, the authors of the accepted papers will receive a 20% discount on the APC before the paper is published in Machines.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to join us at the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Machines and Applications (IECMA 2024).
We look forward to your contributions.
