2017 International Conference on
Innovative Design and Manufacturing

July 17-19, 2017, Milan, Italy

International Conference on Innovative Design and Manufacturing (ICIDM) is a premium conference in design, manufacturing, and innovation. It was created in 2011 by merging two leading conferences: ICMA and ISDM. The series of International Conferences on Manufacturing Automation (ICMA) have a long history starting from 1992 at University of Hong Kong. The International Symposium on Digital Manufacturing (ISDM) was established by Wuhan University of Technology in 2006.

Now, the International Conference on Innovative Design and Manufacturing (ICIDM) aims at providing a forum to share knowledge and new ideas between researchers in the areas of design and manufacturing with links between industry and academia.
The conference in Milan provides a forum for researchers, educators and engineers to disseminate their latest research results and an opportunity to share new ideas on innovation on products and manufacturing.
