Conference Scope

The Sustainable Design and Manufacturing 2015 (SDM15) conference will encompass both theoretical and applied research in a series of topic areas applicable to sustainable design and manufacturing. SDM15 consists of keynote talks, invited sessions and workshops. It will
also provide excellent opportunities for networking. A full peer reviewed set of conference proceedings will be produced while selected publications may be identified for inclusion in appropriate special issues of international journals.

The conference will focus on these key areas:

TRACK 1: Sustainable Products & Processes
Eco-design and eco-innovation, closed-loop design, design for environment/sustainability, environmentally conscious manufacturing processes and products, energy, resource management and efficiency, sustainable manufacturing processes, re-manufacturing, recycling and design for assembly/disassembly.

TRACK 2: Sustainable Manufacturing Systems and Enterprises
Product life cycle management, end-of-life strategies, energy management & efficiency improvement of manufacturing systems, predictive maintenance & service for sustainable manufacturing, green supply chains, green logistics, sustainable business models, sustainable
factory, societal impact of manufacturing systems, policy aspects of sustainable manufacturing.

TRACK 3: Decision Support Tools for Sustainability
Life cycle assessment of manufacturing processes & products, intelligent decision support for sustainable manufacturing, virtual & collaborative environments for sustainability, user/consumer behavioural models, information management/product life cycle management, prognostics, intelligent decision support for sustainable manufacturing including expert systems, knowledge-based systems, knowledge discovery & data mining, knowledge representation & management, pervasive sensing, context-aware systems, mobile computing & systems,
machine learning, virtual reality, intelligent information management.

Application areas may include; design, manufacturing, assembly, industrial control, inspection, monitoring & planning, modelling and simulation, fault diagnosis, environmental monitoring, production planning & control, logistics & supply chain management, factory automation, robotics, automotive, aerospace & medical manufacturing, human factors, economics, etc.

Few Spanish cities can boast as much history, interesting monuments and charming places as Seville, the Andalusian city crossed by the river Guadalquivir. The importance of the city and the passage of various civilizations over the centuries have left a rich legacy. The historic district is a wonderful area to visit. Stroll through its streets brimming with charm and history. Visit the Plaza de EspaƱa, La Giralda, the Alcazar, the Torre del Oro, the Triana neighbourhood and the bullring, among others. If we combine the character of its
people, good weather and rich cuisine, Seville becomes a wonderful and must-visit city.
