Scope of the conference:

  Nowadays the globalization in design engineering and science field has been rapidly progressing under the background of the evolution of the computer and information technology. The systematization and reorganization of the academic field are advanced in many nations in the world.

  The Japan Society for Design Engineering (JSDE) was established as the Japan Society for Mechanical Design and Drafting in 1966 and has continued to contribute to the development of the design engineering especially in mechanical engineering field through the annual conferences and publishing the journals. Many researchers, engineers and educators in the world met at ICDES2005 in Vienna and ICDES2010 in Tokyo and discussed on many issues on design engineering and science.

  In the year 2014, the third conference will be held in 2014 in Pilsen, Czech under the auspices of the City of Pilsen and the University of West Bohemia. The conference will also promote strong interactions between academic and industry in all the aspects of design engineering and science, including human resource development and education. Moreover, JSDE is going to link up with the Design Society (DE) and its Design Education Special Interest Group (DE SIG) of United Kingdom.

  The theme of ICDES2014 is then set as

New Role of Design Engineering and Science
  In addition to the regular tracks of technical presentations, the technical program will also feature several invited sessions with country, industry and technological specific theme. Special emphasis will be placed on the innovation in design engineering and science. Please see the contributed themes for more details.
