Invitation Letter

We are pleased to invite you to UMTIK 2018, the 18th International Conference on Machine Design and Production, to take place on July 3-6, 2018 in Eskişehir. Eskişehir is such a city in Turkey where the technology, arts and culture, history and the social life have such a harmony, mutually nourishing each other. This special nature of Eskişehir urged us to organize this conference somehow in a different format from our previous conferences especially for the first day. The first day activities of the conference program will be devoted to discuss the positive reflections of the advances in machine design and production technologies to the people' s life in all aspects, as case studies for Eskişehir and elsewhere.

About UMTIK

The first UMTIK conference was organized by MATIMAREN as a national event in Turkish language in 1984 at the Mechanical Engineering Department of the Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara with a nation-wide participation of Turkish companies and universities. MATIMAREN, Machine Design and Production Research Center (formerly Institute) was initiated in 1979 by a group of faculty in the Mechanical Engineering Department of METU, Ankara, Turkey. The Center aimed to constitute the university-industry cooperation by conducting applied research for industry. The center conducted numerous projects for industry and soon after needed to share this experience and knowledge with other universities and companies by organizing a national conference. This was the idea behind biannual UMTIK conferences which became constitutional and continued without interruption until now.
