An additional team of technical editors who will be responsible for
specific thematic areas will also edit each volume of the series.


Series Objectives & Mission: This book series aims to capture advances in computers and information in engineering research.  The books will be published in both traditional and e-book forms. The contributions in this series are expected to also serve as tools that will enable engineers not only to read but also to experience the fruits of authors' research by providing software or animations or videos that will be hosted on our deployment web site of ACIER.

Audience: The intended audience is primarily the academic, governmental and industrial mechanical engineering and computational science communities interested in recent research advances as they relate to computational and information technologies associated with engineering design along with product and process development.

Thematic Content: The series will focus on advances in computational methods, algorithms, tools, and processes on the cutting edge of research and development as they have been reported during the last five annual CIE conferences.  The series will provide a resource for enhancing engineering practice by enabling the understanding and the application of evolving and emerging technologies that impact critical engineering issues related to the topics and themes under CIE’s technical committees' areas of interest (but not limited to) as shown in the table below:
