XIII. International Conference
on the Theory of Machines and Mechanisms

General Information

By accreditation from the Czech National Committee IFToMM, the Technical University of Liberec organizes the XIII. International Conference on the Theory of Machines and Mechanisms.

The conference which is held every four years, continues its long standing tradition since 1973 to be organized at the Technical university of Liberec in Czech Republic. The Organizing Committee aims at bringing together specialists, working on issues related to the theory of machines and mechanisms from a general as well as a precise application point of view.

The conference proceedings will be published in the proceedings book as a volume of the Springer series on Mechanism and Machine Science (edited by M. Ceccarelli). The proceedings from previous editions of the conference are available at:

Topics of the Conference

Papers classified by the scientific steering committee will be presented in parallel sessions relevant to the following topics:

  • General theory of machines and mechanisms
  • Analysis and synthesis of planar and spatial mechanisms
  • Dynamics of machines and mechanisms
  • Linkages and cams
  • Computational mechanics
  • Rotor dynamics
  • Biomechanics
  • Mechatronics
  • Vibration and noise in machines
  • Optimization of mechanisms and machines
  • Control and monitoring systems of machines
  • Accuracy and reliability of machines and mechanisms
  • Robots and manipulators
  • The mechanisms of textile machines

Scientific sessions will be held at the Technical University of Liberec.
The official language of the conference is English.

All conference papers will be reviewed. The accepted papers will be published in the Book of Proceedings. Contributions from previous conferences are included in the Springer book series Mechanisms and Machine science in the books “Advances in mechanisms design” and “Advances in mechanisms design II” and are indexed by SCOPUS and Google Scholar.
