The Department of Mechanical Engineering, Amrita School of Engineering, Bengaluru Campus will organize an international conference on Advances in Materials & Manufacture Applications (IConAMMA) from August 17th-19th 2017.


In the present era, Mechanical Sciences are the back-bone of the economy of a nation. There is a strong motivation for optimizing the design and manufacturing process using experiments with high precision equipment’s and computational techniques for modeling the processes. The present conference focuses on the advances in the field of Mechanical Sciences applied to materials and manufacturing. In addition to contributory papers, the conference aims at inviting renowned experts for delivering keynote addresses/special lectures in the field of Mechanical Sciences. There is an increasing awareness of the benefits to be derived from the development and exploitation of advanced materials and structures in applications ranging from hydrospace to aerospace. With the ability to respond autonomously to changes in their environment, smart systems can offer a simplified approach to the control of various material and system characteristics. Mechanistic understanding from any discipline is the routes to the development of materials with capabilities beyond those currently available. The conference is aimed for creating a cross disciplinary summit that transcends departmental, institutional, industrial, public and private research organizations and global barriers and lends itself to the integration of research and education in the vital field of advanced materials. This conference mainly aims in major sectors of advanced processing, material characterization, modeling and simulation, properties, performance and device fabrication.


The role of manufacturing in the country’s economy and societal development has long been established through their wealth creation activities. To deepen and broaden our knowledge of materials and to increase innovation and responsiveness to ever-increasing international needs, more in-depth studies of functionally graded materials/ tailor-made materials are needed at present. The objective of this conference is to bring together experts from academic institutions, industries and research organizations and professional engineers for sharing of knowledge, expertise and experience in the emerging trends related to advanced materials processing, and characterization. The conference is structured as follows: plenary lectures followed by parallel sessions. The plenary lectures will be delivered by eminent personalities of international repute to introduce the theme of the conference. Each parallel session starts with an invited talk on specific topic followed by contributed papers. Papers are invited from the prospective authors from industries, academic institutions and R&D organizations and from professional engineers
