Proceedings of the 2018 8th International Conference on Manufacturing Science and Engineering (ICMSE 2018)

The International Conference on Manufacturing Science and Engineering is the premier forum for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of Manufacturing Science and Engineering. The conference brings together leading researchers, engineers and scientists in the domain of interest from around the world. The 1st ICMSE was held in Zhuhai, 2009, the 2nd in Guilin, 2011, the 3rd in Xiamen, 2012, the 4th in Dalian, 2013, the 5th in Shanghai, 2014, the 6th in Guangzhou, 2015 and the 7th in Zhuhai, 2017. Following the style of the previous four successful congresses, the 8th International Conference on Manufacturing Science and Engineering was held in Shenzhen, China, 30-31 March 2018. The program was designed to advance manufacturing technologies to the next generation through discussion of the most recent advances and future perspectives, and to engage the worldwide community in a collective effort to solve problems in manufacturing.

The present volumes provide up-to-date, comprehensive and worldwide state-of-the art knowledge of the manufacturing science and engineering, including: Materials Science and Engineering, Biological Materials, Biomimetic Materials, Bionic manufacturing and Bio-mechanism, Materials Processing Technology, Vibration, Mechanical Dynamics and Applied Mechanics, Mechanical and Product Design, Computer and Electronic Technology in Manufacturing, Automated Control Technology and Robotics, Manufacturing and Production Management, etc. All papers included in those volumes have already passed the strict peer-reviewing by 2-3 expert referees and been accepted for publication. The total number of submitted papers is 502 and 136 are accepted. We hope that those volumes will not only provide the readers a broad overview of the latest advances but also provide the researchers a valuable summary and reference in this field.

The organization of ICMSE 2018 and the publication of those volumes were made possible thanks to the tireless dedication of many people. We would like to express our sincere thanks to the session organizers, session chairs, reviewers, presenters, exhibitors and congress attendees for their efforts and enthusiastic participation in this congress.
