In recent years, there have been significant advancements in mechanical and intelligent manufacturing technologies. The integration of advanced computing and sensing technologies has led to more precise, efficient, and automated manufacturing processes. The manufacturing industry has been revolutionized by the emergence of Industry 4.0, which utilizes smart machines, big data, and artificial intelligence. These technologies have enabled real-time monitoring, predictive maintenance, and adaptive control, resulting in increased productivity, reduced costs, and improved quality. Additionally, the development of advanced materials and manufacturing techniques, such as 3D printing and micro/nano manufacturing, has expanded the possibilities for manufacturing complex structures and functional devices.

The 15th International Conference on Mechanical and Intelligent Manufacturing Technologies (ICMIMT) will be held on May 17-19, 2024 in Cape Town, South Africa. The conference is co-sponsored by India International Congress on Computational Intelligence (IICCI) and IEEE, hosted by the University of Cape Town (South Africa), with patrons from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (South Africa), University of Johannesburg (South Africa), and other institutions.

The primary objective of ICMIMT 2024 is to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academicians, and industrial professionals from all over the world to present their research results and development activities in Mechanical and Intelligent Manufacturing Technologies. This conference offers a unique opportunity for delegates to exchange new ideas and experiences, establish business or research relationships, and find global partners for future collaboration.
