We would like to inform that “Engineer of XXI Century” – the VIII Inter University Conference of Students, PhD Students and Young Scientists will be held on 07 December 2018 at the University of Bielsko-Biała (ATH) in Bielsko-Biała, Poland.

The conference is organized by the “Engineer of XXI Century” Inter-disciplinary Student Research Group at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science of ATH.

The goals of the Conference are as follows: presentation of the most interesting works performed within a framework of different additional student activities as well as integration of students of our region. The conference is open also for Erasmus students who study at the University of Bielsko-Biala.

Scope of the Conference covers the topics related to the following fields of knowledge:

  • mechanics and machine building,
  • automation and robotics,
  • mechatronics,
  • production engineering and management,
  • informatics/computer science.

Poster session will be organized for presentation of the submitted papers.
The submitted papers will be rewieved by the members of the Scientific Committee.

However, this year we have two opportunities of printing the conference papers:

  • as previously i.e. in the Monograph (volumes of Proceedings) printed by the Publishing Office of the University of Bielsko-Biala –  free of charge;
  • new possibility – in the book of proceedings printed by SPRINGER in the well-known series MMS (Mechanism and Machine Science) which, till now, has over 50 volumes. The Editor of the series is Professor Marco Ceccarelli from University in Casino, Italy. The Editors of the Conference Proceedings are Stan Zawislak, PhD, D.Sc. and Jacek Rysiński, PhD. This option should be prepaid by 90 Euro (390 zl) / per item. After positive approval, payment has to be done via a bank transfer onto the bank account given in the conference webpage. Performance of the payment is the compulsory condition for printing.

Therefore, besides the anterior volume printed by the University of Bielsko-Biala, the SPRINGER publication is now available for the papers of the highest level. Other papers, also after the review procedure, will be published in traditional manner.

All the submitted works/papers will be evaluated by the independent rewievers nominated by the Journal.

Solely the original papers could be published. The final approval of any paper for printing depends on submission of the signed declaration of originality signed by the main author – in both cases: for SPRINGER and University based publication, in both cases the special standard declaration forms will be utilized and collected by the Editors.

Registration of Participants

All information are available and registration can be done by means of the internet website:
Therefore, we kindly ask Prospective participants for on-line registration as early as possible.

Confirmation of participation in the Conference, submission of the papers, information on the reviewing process and Conference Announcements (Circulars) will be delivered via this service.

Submission of papers

The papers should be delivered only in electronic form using the MS Word wordprocessor. They have to be formatted according to the guidelines and the template available from the above mentioned website:

  • SPRINGER – series Mechanism and Machine Science – templates
  • Conference Proceedings – templates

All correspondence connected with participation in the Conference should be viewed via the official web-address of the Conference

The papers which obtain the positive evaluation during the reviewing process are accept for publication and presentation.

The papers will be published as separate chapters.

Due to SPRINGER requirements, other deadlines have to be introduced as well as a fee (for the volume and its preparation) should be paid in case of positive review process.
Other offered services are continually free of charge: i.e. participation in the Conference as well as the volume edited by the University and printed by the University Publishing Office in Bielsko-Biala.

Due to the publishing process the deadlines for submission of papers as well as submission of reviewed versions (corrected) should be held.
