Welcome to Asian MMS 2018!

Asian Conference on Mechanism and Machine Science (Asian MMS 2018) is an international conference organized under the patronage of IFToMM. The aim of the conference is to bring together academic researchers, industry professionals, and students in the fields of mechanism and machine science. The first Asian MMS 2010 was held in Taipei. This conference is the fifth in the series after Tokyo in 2012, Tianjin in 2014, and Guangzhou in 2016. The Asian MMS 2018, although primarily intended for Asian countries, serves as a global platform for the participants to exchange ideas and present their research in the following topics.


  • Theoretical kinematics
  • Computational kinematics
  • Machine elements
  • Actuators and sensors involving mechanics
  • Gearing and transmissions
  • Linkages and cams
  • Mechanism design
  • Dynamics of machinery
  • Tribology
  • Vehicle mechanisms, dynamics, and design
  • Reliability in machines and mechanisms
  • Experimental methods in mechanisms
  • Robotics and mechatronics
  • Biomechanics
  • Micro/nano mechanisms and systems
  • Medical/heathcare devices
  • Nature and machines
  • Compliant mechanisms
  • History of mechanism and machine science
  • Education in mechanism and machine science
  • Reconfigurable mechanisms and reconfigurable manipulators
  • Parallel and serial manipulators
  • Committees
