Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

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
S5. Turbomachinery
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.

Sincerely,
Prof. Dr. Antonio J. Marques Cardoso
Chair of the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Machines and Applications

Announcement of oral and poster abstract results: 26 April 2024. You will be notified of the acceptance of an oral/poster presentation in a separate email.

Certificates of Participation are available in your logged-in area of Sciforum.net, under “My certificates” after the conference.

Abstract Submission
Abstract submissions should be completed online by registering with www.sciforum.net and using the "New Submission" function once logged into the system. No physical template is necessary.
  1. The abstract structure should include the introduction, methods, results, and conclusions sections of about 200–300 words in length.
  2. All accepted abstracts will be published as one dedicated volume in the proceedings journal (ISSN: 2504-3900) after quality check. If you wish to publish a full-length proceedings paper, please refer to the “Publication Opportunities” Section.
  3. All abstracts should be submitted and presented in clear, publication-ready English with accurate grammar and spelling.
  4. You may submit multiple abstracts. However, only one abstract will be selected for oral presentation.

Oral Presentation and Slides Submission
The slot for the oral presentation is 15 mins. We advise that your presentation lasts for a maximum of 12 mins, leaving at least 3 mins for the Q&A session.
Authors are encouraged to prepare a presentation in PowerPoint or similar software, to be displayed online along with the abstract. Slides, if available, will be displayed directly on the website using the proprietary slide viewer at Sciforum.net. Slides can be prepared in exactly the same way as for any traditional conference where research results are presented. Slides should be converted to PDF format prior to submission so that they can be converted for online display.

You can use our free template to create your poster. The poster template can be downloaded here.

The Poster Sessions will take place in Zoom break-out rooms. The rooms will be called after your surname. You will automatically be assigned to your break-out room, however, you will be responsible for your own room, i.e. sharing your screen by yourself, handling the comments in the chat if there are any, etc. People will then be able to visit your room and discuss your poster with you. Please make sure you have the Zoom Desktop client or mobile app, version 5.3.0 or higher.

We will reach out to you closer to the dates of the conference with more information.

Potential Conflicts of Interest
It is the author's responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research. If there is no conflict, please state "The authors declare no conflicts of interest." This should be conveyed in a separate "Conflict of Interest" statement preceding the "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections at the end of the manuscript. Any financial support for the study must be fully disclosed in the "Acknowledgments" section.
Copyright
MDPI, the publisher of the Sciforum.net platform, is an open access publisher. We believe authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting an abstract to this conference, you retain the copyright to the work, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this abstract online on the Sciforum.net platform. This means you can easily submit your full paper (with the abstract) to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher if required.

Event Awards

To acknowledge the support of the conference's esteemed authors and recognize their outstanding scientific accomplishments, we are pleased to announce that the conference will provide 4 awards including the Best Oral Presentation Award and Best Poster Award.

The Awards
Best Oral Presentation Award and Best Poster Award

Number of Awards Available: 4

The Best Oral Presentation Award is given to the paper judged to make the most significant oral contribution to the conference.

The Best Poster Award is given to the submission judged to make the most significant and interesting poster for the conference.

There will be four winners selected for this award. The winner will receive a certificate and 200 CHF each.
