2018 3rd International Conference on Design Engineering and Science (ICDES 2018) will be hosted in Barcelona, Spain during Feb.22 - 25, 2018, in conjunction with IC4M 2018. ICDES 2018 is organized by Hong Kong Society of Mechanical Engineers, technical sponsored by Gent University, IQS, MaromeTech and other organizations.

With the continous success of ICDES, we believe that ICDES 2018 will be more exciting and obviously the main annual Design Engineering and Science conference aimed at presenting current research. The idea of the conference is for the scientists, scholars, engineers and students from the universities all around the world and the industry to present ongoing research activities, and hence to foster research relations between the universities and the industry. 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.

The whole conference committee cordially invite you to this outstanding conference. We look forward to receiving your paper in either research or development of acquired knowledge in order to disseminate to the wider audience. Join us at this event to see other excellent researchers share their work.

We look forward to welcoming you to Barcelona on the 22th-25th, February, 2018.
