IMC30 Conference
University College Dublin
3rd - 4th September 2013

Welcome to the website of the IMC30 Conference, which will be held in UCD Dublin on 3rd and 4th September 2013. The conference uniquely showcases research undertaken in academia and industry by Postgraduate students and experienced Researchers in Manufacturing Engineering domains. Indicative conference topics are shown on the conference programme page.

Conference Theme
The theme for this year's conference is:

“Professional Development of Engineers for Advanced Manufacturing”

It is chosen having regard to recent reports commissioned on manufacturing, such as the recent “Research Prioritisation Report”, and the stated need in developed economies for differentiation through knowledge-based product-service and business process innovation. In manufacturing industry specifically, competitive advantage must be engineered into mass-customised products and flexible manufacturing systems and processes by teams who are highly dependent on the excellence of the Manufacturing Engineering discipline.

Keynote Speakers will be invited to provide a critical analysis of the objectives, principles and structured approaches to the professional development of Manufacturing Engineers. In the best tradition of the IMC conferences, the speakers will be from industry and academia and will provide deep insights into this important topic for the sustainability and growth of strategic multinational and indigenous manufacturing sectors. Speakers will also be asked to consider the context of the global environment where manufacturing paradigms are changing to enable “competitive sustainable manufacturing”. In view of the unique nature of the IMC community, with an emphasis on industry-academia collaborations, all delegates can potentially contribute to this topic. The optimum conditions for the success of such partnerships is of particular interest.
