You are invited to participate in the ASME Journal of Autonomous Vehicles & Systems
Dear DED Members,
I am delighted to circulate the flyer of the new ASME Journal of Autonomous Vehicles and Systems that has been established under the Dynamic Systems and Control Division and Design Engineering Division.
You are cordially invited to submit your research papers, initiate and edit JAVS Special Issues, nominate your colleagues, collaborators and self-nominate for Associate Editor positions, Reviewers, and Advisory Council.
I would appreciate if you circulate the attached flyer to your colleagues, collaborators, and students.
With Best Holiday Wishes,

Journal of Mechanical Design Special Issue: Design for Advanced Manufacturing: Seeking paper submissions
Design and manufacturing are intimately coupled in the conceptualization and realization of products. Engineering design is regularly a key component of innovation and successful product development, yet promising designs that are very costly or challenging to manufacture may never be realized in practice. Advancement of manufacturing technologies tends to lower barriers to realization and expands design freedom, but may also introduce unique restrictions on the design space. New design methods and design tools are therefore needed to help engineers navigate the novel design space created by advanced manufacturing. Examples of opportunities created by advanced manufacturing include design of multifunctional, multi-material, multi-physics and/or multiscale components and systems, while such designs must take into account manufacturability, materials evolution through the manufacturing process, and manufacturing induced imperfections. This special issue aims to report the state-of-art design research supporting advanced manufacturing such as additive manufacturing, hybrid manufacturing, advanced CNC machining, improved injection molding, and advanced sheet metal forming processes.
For more information, including contact information and important dates, please see attached flyer.
To be the leader, as a division of the Society, covering the art, science, and application of design engineering and to facilitate transfer of design engineering technology between industry, academe and government through programs and publications.
To develop, promote, encourage, and support our members and technical committees in their quest for technical excellence and professional success in their respective fields, and to provide necessary processes and mechanisms to spawn new initiatives and identify emerging technologies through technical meetings, publications, and member interest activities.
Overview of DED
As the largest technical division in ASME, the long-lasting success of the Design Engineering Division (DED) has been driven by the active participation of its members from thirteen DED technical committees. DED sponsors various events. The flagship event year is the IDETC (International Design Engineering Technical Conferences), jointly hold with the conferences sponsored by the Computers & Information in Engineering (CIE) division. In addition to the IDETC, the technical committees also sponsor sessions at the ASME IMECE each year.
Activities of Technical Committees are supplemented by the work from DED Standing and Special committees to address the current and emerging issues of DED, improve member experiences, and help DED stay connected with the outside world.
The success of DED is based on the scholarly contributions of its members, collected in the form of journal papers. The DED currently sponsors six journals including four sole-sponsored journals and two jointly sponsored ones with other divisions.
One of the most active missions of the DED is to recognize the outstanding research, education, and engineering accomplishments of members of the design engineering community through its vibrant awards program. There are currently up to twenty-eight awards given out within DED during any two-year period, including four Society-level awards, two Division-level awards, six Division/Committee-level awards, and sixteen Committee-level awards.
We encourage to particpate in the DED activities and join one of the DED technical committees. Please contact the DED leaders for further information.
The activities of the division are directed by an Executive Committee, which establishes the Division's policy and goals. The Executive Committee is supported by other committees as needed.
