On behalf of the ICMDT 2023 Committee, we would like to thank all the participants of the 9th International Conference on Manufacturing, Machine Design and Tribology (ICMDT 2023), which is being organized by The Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers (KSME) and The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME).
The conference, which will be held from March 08 to 10, 2023, in Jeju, South Korea, provides all participants with a great chance to discuss roles, future trends, and challenges for manufacturing, machine design, and tribology. During the conference period, many interesting papers, including 4 keynote papers, will be presented in oral and poster sessions. Many participants from academia, industries, and research institutions will join this conference from diverse countries in the world.
Jeju Island has been renowned worldwide for its providing a great and peaceful rest to all visitors. We hope that you find the conference exciting and make a good friendship through personal contact. Formal and informal social periods will be scheduled to allow participants to make meaningful collaboration and network. We also hope that you have an enjoyable and rewarding time during the conference period on Jeju Island.
We would like to express our gratitude to the keynote speakers who are willing to give valuable lectures despite their busy schedules. Although it is still difficult for researchers from all over the world to freely meet and hold an active and in-depth academic conference as before, we sincerely hope that ICMDT 2023 will be a meaningful academic conference for all of the participants.
Finally, I would like to express our heartfelt welcome to all participants again.
