2021 IEEE 12th International Conference on Mechanical and Intelligent Manufacturing Technologies (ICMIMT 2021) will take place on May 13-15, 2021 in Cape Town, South Africa.

ICMIMT is sponsored by IEEE, hosted by University of Cape Town. The aim of ICMIMT 2021 is to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals from all over the world to present their research results and development activities in Mechanical and Intelligent Manufacturing Technologies. This conference provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration. 

Important Notice: ICMIMT organizing committee continues to closely monitor this dynamic situation and will provide updates with any developments. It will be proposed to be organized as online conference, if travel restrictions due to the epidemic. The organizing committee for ICMIMT will host the conference partially virtual for those who cannot attend due to the COVID-19.
