conference on Machines and Mechanisms is held every two years by
reputed research and academic institutes in collaboration with the
Association of Machines and Mechanisms (AMM). This is one of the
most important occasions during which researchers, designers, and
practicing engineers working in the area meet and exchange ideas.
The peer-reviewed papers are published in the proceedings of the
conference and some of the selected papers may appear in the journal
of Mechanism and Machine Theory published by the International
Federation of the Theory of Machines and Mechanisms (IFToMM).
NaCoMM has always been honored by the premier organizations of India
by hosting it in their location. For example, in last few years the
NaCoMMs were held in Central Mechanical Engineering Research
Institute (CMERI) Durgapur (1995), Inidan Institute of Technology (IIT)
Kanpur (1997), IIT Bombay (1999), IIT Kharagpur (2001), IIT Delhi
(2003), IIT Guwahati (2005) and IISc Bangalore (2007).
2009 it is being organized by the Department of Mechanical
Engineering of NIT Durgapur on 17-18 December. The conference
will cover the areas but not limited to Dynamics and Vibration
Analysis of Machinery, Micro & Nano Machines and Mechanisms,
Biomedical Devices and Mechanisms, etc. Fields including Rural
Machines and Mechanisms, Textile Machines, etc., are also introduced
in this NaCoMM-2009.
competition among the students on the development of new mechanisms
and / or machines has been introduced by AMM in NaCoMM-09.
