2021 IEEE 12th International Conference on Mechanical and Intelligent Manufacturing Technologies (ICMIMT) is scheduled to be in Cape town, South Africa during May 13-15, 2021, mainly sponsored by University of Cape Town, South Africa. In May (2021), the world is still fighting against the outbreak of COVID-19, there is no doubt that the safety and well-being of our participants is of paramount importance to the conference organizing committee. In consideration of the health and safety of everyone, pervasive travel restrictions as well as most author’s appeals, we had to make a tough decision and convert ICMIMT 2021 into fully virtual conference.
We would like to express our gratitude to the distinguished speakers: Prof. Robert Gao (IEEE Fellow, USA), Prof. Henry Hu (Canada), Prof. Khaled Abou-El-Hossein (South Africa), Prof. Ramesh Kuppuswamy (South Africa) and other distinguished scholars for sharing their deep insights on future challenges and trends in the conferences. Special thanks to our committee members, all the reviewers, session chairs, presenters and listener attendees, researchers and students who participate in the virtual conference.
