Every four years is organised an International conference about the theory of machines and mechanisms. This conference is traditionally organised under the auspices of the international organisation IFToMM and the Czech Society for Mechanics. The last conference (held in 2012) was attended by a total of 73 specialists, 36 of whom came from 17 nations around the world.

Papers classified by the scientific steering committee will be presented in parallel sessions relevant to the following topics:

  • General theory of machines and mechanisms
  • Analysis and synthesis of planar and spatial mechanisms
  • Dynamics of machines and mechanisms
  • Linkages and cams
  • Computational mechanics
  • Rotor dynamics
  • Biomechanics
  • Mechatronics
  • Vibration and noise in machines
  • Optimization of mechanisms and machines
  • Control and monitoring systems of machines
  • Accuracy and reliability of machines and mechanisms
  • Robots and manipulators
  • The mechanisms of textile machines

Accompanying Events:

  • Meeting of the Technical Committee for Linkages and Mechanical Controls of IFToMM
  • Meeting of Czech Committee IFToMM
  • Summer course on Introduction to modal analysis

Social Programme:

  • Conference Banquet
  • Cultural programme
  • Excursion

Contributions from previous conference (held in 2008) are included in the database Web of Knowledge.
