9th International Conference on

Advancements and Futuristic Trends in Mechanical and Materials Engineering

About the Conference

The inaugural AFTMME conference was started in 2010 with the goal of bringing together mechanical and materials engineers under a common umbrella to bring academicians, researchers, practising engineers, industrialists and start-up professionals together for sharing their ideas & experiences and disseminate knowledge. Mechanical and Materials Engineering have long had a symbiotic relationship in this space. On December 9th, 2021, luminaries from various fields of mechanical and materials engineering coupled with young researchers will once again congregate virtually to present their work and discuss futuristic advancements.
