International Conference on Engineering Design
22-24 August 1995
Czech Technical University (CVUT)
Prague, Czech Republic

This conference is called to review and extend the results of
long-term co-operation within the framework of ICED, and
particularly to transfer this knowledge into engineering practice.
It is the tenth in the ICED series, they started with ICED 81 Rome
and continued with growing success in Copenhagen, Hamburg,
Boston (MA), Budapest, Harrogate, Dubrovnik, Zurich and
the Hague. Since their inception, over 3000 experts from 59
countries have attended.

The proposed themes include:
* state and future trends of design science, research
and methods.
* state of current application of design science and
methods into engineering practice, problems and
consultation support.
* branch-specific design science, e.g. for machine tools,
complex plant, etc.
* design processes: general systematic design - application,
management of design process, methods in various design
stages (e.g. for evaluation, representation, etc.)
* product development methodology, relationships to current
best industrial practice, methods such as integration,
QFD, TQM, concurrency, Taguchi methods etc.
* design for quality, especially design for manufacture,
assembly, distribution, transport, economics,
(especially costs), environment (ecology), reliability,
maintenance and repair, etc.
* design support by computers - design support systems
(including decision support), product modelling (e.g.
features-based), knowledge modelling, attachment of
properties to product models, etc.
* education for engineering design

The schedule of planning is:

30th August 1994 submission of abstracts
15th November 1994 acceptance of abstracts
15th February 1995 receipt of camera-ready manuscripts
for Proceedings

Abstracts should be 400 to 500 words in length, must indicate
which of the announced topics is to be addressed by the
contribution, and must contain indications of references from
previous ICED conferences and the open literature. Working
languages for the conference and papers will be English and German.

International Centre for Scientific and Technical Information,

Moscow, 5-9th September 1994

Conference Aims:
The conference is concerned with the creative human activity of
designing artifacts such as systems, structures, machines and a
variety of objects. It aims to reconsider an important question:

* How could we use information technology (IT) to enhance
human creativity and improve the effectiveness of designers?

The conference will build upon achievements and learn from
limitations of current systems. Examples of important questions
which we shall discuss in Moscow include:
* Why is it that we do not know how to employ information
technology at the conceptual stage of design when a major
creative effort is required?
* Do we know how to support concurrent engineering, i.e. teams
of designers from a variety of disciplines co-operating on
the development of new products with customers and marketing
* What is the best way of using IT to aid the strategic
evolution of products, i.e. designing products that can
evolve with the changing requirements of customers?

Panel Discussion:
* The lessons of CAD history - the achievements, mistakes,

Conference Language:
Abstracts and papers should be written in English. Presentations
can be made in English or in Russian. Professional interpreters
will be available for sequential interpreting during the conference.
