Mission of the TMCE Symposium Series

The series of TMCE Symposia is dedicated to the further development of the scientific, technological and practical knowledge of competitive engineering and to acting as a catalyst of the knowledge transfer between academia and industry.

A number of items are considered to be crucial to the symposium series:

  • Industrial Tutorials as a start
  • Social functions on every day of the symposium
  • Keynote talks
  • Technical sessions
  • Discussion platforms
  • Poster presentations
  • Proceedings
  • Special Issues in journals

Topics of TMCE 2016

The focus theme of the TMCE 2016 Symposium will be: "Virtual development of multi-physics-based intelligent systems". Within this theme, many interesting and important topics are considered, but not limited to, such as:

  • Unsolved problems and issues of competitive engineering at the beginning of the XXI. century
  • Technologies and methodologies for competitive collaborative virtual engineering and sustainable process enhancement
  • Engineering issues of using new materials and materialization technologies in sustainable product-service systems
  • Engineering issues of using renewable energy sources and hybrid powering technologies in sustainable product-service systems
  • Support of sustainability-conscious creativity, innovation, design, planning, and management
  • Latest advancements in the development of intelligent multi-physics-based systems
  • Challenges of designing and engineering intelligent self-organizing complex systems
  • Strategic and incremental innovations, design and implementation of embedded systems in social context
  • Designing and validating cyber-physical systems and smart products for complete life cycle
  • New approaches and processes for embedded systems and applications, and for virtual and physical unerring system validation
  • Technical environment analysis, distributed collaborative information and knowledge exploration, and big data analytics
  • Morphological, structural modeling and simulation of multi-physics based systems
  • Utilization of the principles and technologies of next generation Internet and Internet of things in products, systems, and services
  • Advancements in the design, implementation, and application of additive manufacturing systems
  • Information mining, object retrieval, big data analytics, knowledge synthesis, and agent structures in complex systems and in product development
  • Cognitive and emotional engineering of personalized cyber-physical systems
  • Human aspects, knowledge and information as basis for integrated, global, and BoP-orientated product innovation
  • Multi-sensorial input and visualization, and abstract, virtual and physical prototyping for cyber-physical systems
  • Interaction with multi-scale cyber-physical systems, ubiquitous/pervasive products, and pervasive services
  • Sensor technologies, sensor networks, and their applications in complex systems
  • Application of advanced (sensor, actuator, communication, networking) technologies in human and build environments
  • Cyber-physical architectures as foundations for distributed, collaborative, and adaptive complex systems
  • Emerging educational issues of developing and using complex systems
