International Conference on Manufacturing Automation free pdf Engineering, General We extend a warm welcome to all delegates attending the International Conference on Manufacturing Automation (ICMA 2004) here at the School of Mechanical Science and Engineering, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), Wuhan, People's Republic of China. This is the fourth time that the ICMA has been held. Each conference has had its own character and it has been interesting to note in particular the change of emphasis on different themes. The ICMA has always had a healthy mixture of topics, bringing together experts from different fields, encouraging cross-fertilization of interests and ideas. ICMA 2004 has also developed its own character. This time we chose to have everyone submit his or her papers electronically and in full. This way, papers have been reviewed from the very start to ensure high quality and effective development of papers throughout the process. The result is around 100 top quality papers from no less than 10 different countries on a variety of topics that contribute to our theme of Advanced Design and Manufacturing in Global Competition. I hope you agree with me that this conference is very worthwhile and that the proceedings represent a significant contribution to research in this area. Another key factor in this conference has been the participation of our co-organizers at The University of Hong Kong, and National University of Singapore. The organizing committee at Huazhong University of Science and Technology has been grateful of the advice and support that has been provided by our colleagues and friends at these other institutions. The organizing committee would like to acknowledge the very generous support of the sponsors of this conference. Thanks are due to all members of the international scientific committee and keynote speakers for helping to make this a rich, rewarding, and truly international event. The assistance of all session chairs, student helpers, and secretaries are all gratefully appreciated, as is the support of the School of Mechanical Science and Engineering, Huazhong University of Science and Technology.
