industrial engineering


    The International Conference on Industrial Engineering in 2021 was held on May 17-21 in the city of Sochi. Due to the difficult epidemiological situation with coronavirus infection (COVID-19) and the difficulty of crossing borders between countries, the conference was held in a mixed format. Participants, at their will and where possible, could choose one of three formats of participation - the traditional face-to-face format, remotely via videoconference, remotely in the format of a poster presentation.

    With a face-to-face format and via video conference, anyone could remotely ask the speakers questions and receive oral answers to them. In the format of poster presentations for each report of the conference, a page was formed on the website, on which the presentation of the report and a chat for on-line communication were placed. Everyone had the opportunity to watch the presentation of the report and type questions in the chat, and the speakers could give their explanations.

    The conference organizers were South Ural State University (national research university), Platov South-Russian State Polytechnic University, Moscow Polytechnic University and Volgograd State Technical University.

    ICIE 2021 included a rich technical program consisting of 13 sections:
    Part 1. Mechanical Engineering:
    1.1. Machinery and Mechanism Design;
    1.2. Dynamics of Machines and Working Processes;
    1.3. Friction, Wear, and Lubrication in Machines;
    1.4. Design and Manufacturing Engineering of Industrial Facilities;
    1.5. Transport and Technological Machines;
    1.6. Mechanical Treatment of Materials;
    1.7. Industrial Hydraulic Systems;
    1.8. Green Manufacturing.
    Part 2. Materials Engineering and Technologies for Production and Processing:
    2.1. Polymers, Composites and Ceramics;
    2.2. Steels and Alloys, Metallurgical and Metalworking Technologies;
    2.3. Chemical and Hydrometallurgical Technologies;
    2.4. Surface Engineering and Coatings;
    2.5. Processing and Controlling Technologies.

    More than 370 reports were selected by the program committee for participating in the conference (see program). In 2021, scientists and practicians from 18 countries took part in the conference, including representatives of 83 Russian cities from the western and central parts to the Far East regions. International participants represented 38 cities and 17 countries. These are countries such as Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bolivia, China, Germany, India, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Morocco, Poland, South Korea, Tajikistan, Turkey, Vietnam, Uzbekistan, Ukraine.

    English-speaking conference papers were accepted for publication in "Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering" of Springer International Publishing AG and "Defect and Diffusion Forum" journal of Trans Tech Publications Ltd. Reports of "Mechanical Engineering" were published in the "Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering" journal (volume I; volume II). Reports of "Materials engineering and technologies for production and processing" were published in the "Defect and Diffusion Forum" journal (vol. 410, 2021).

    Russian-speaking conference papers were accepted for publication in the conference proceedings as electronic issue indexed by RSCI (Russian Science Citation Index).
