GREETING

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 9th International Congress on Precision Machining (ICPM 2017), organized by the National Technical University of Athens, which will be held in Athens, the capital city of Greece, in September 2017.
The International Congress on Precision Machining is a biennial event, which is developing into a major international happening with a growing number of delegates from around the globe. Scientists and engineers use this platform to share their research findings, exchange ideas, discover novel opportunities, meet with colleagues or acquaint with new friends from abroad, broaden their knowledge and bridge the gap between academia and industry.
Papers on various topics are welcome in the field of precision machining. The different points of view, which will be shared by the academic and industrial practitioners, will contribute significantly to the developments in this area of technology, which is of great importance in contemporary industry.
The topics concern a broad range of issues that are of interest to researchers, manufacturers, businessmen and consumers of engineering materials and their products. However, we hope that the presented topics will contribute to the collaboration of the participants in many aspects, as well as to the enhancement of the contacts between education, science and business, which will be of mutual benefit.
The organizers are proud to be hosting ICPM 2017 for the first time and are looking forward to welcoming you and meeting you in Greece.

INFORMATION
Congress history
The International Congress of Precision Machining (ICPM) was established in 2001 in response to the increased necessity for ever greater precision in manufacturing production. The Congress originated out of a common agreement between universities of the Czech Republic. The considerable success of the first Congress confirmed the importance of the subject areas and signalled the internationalisation of the congress commencing with other European countries.
The ICPM is a biennial event held in early to mid autumn. The Congress is developing into a major international event with a growing number of international delegates participating to exchange their research findings with other researchers and practitioners.
The previous Congress hosts were:
1st ICPM 2001 J.E. Purkyne University, Usti nad Labem, Czech Republic

Organizers
National Technical University of Athens
The National Technical University of Athens(NTUA) is proud to host ICPM 2017 and welcomes all the participants in Greece. Some historical information can be found below.
NTUA was founded in 1836, a few years after Greece gained its independence. It is the oldest and most prestigious educational institution of Greece in the field of technology and has contributed unceasingly to the country's scientific, technical and economic development. It is closely linked with Greece's struggle for independence, democracy and social progress. In Greek, NTUA is called the National Metsovion Polytechnic. It was named "Metsovion" to honor the donors and benefactors Nikolaos Stournaris, Eleni Tositsa, Michail Tositsas and Georgios Averof, all from Metsovo, a small town in the region of Epirus, who made substantial donations in the last half of the 19th century.
NTUA was established by Royal Decree in 1836 with the purpose of training craftsmen, builders and master craftsmen. In 1840 due to its increasing popularity and the changing socio-economic conditions in the new state, it was upgraded to a daily Technical School.
In 1843 the School of Arts underwent its first major restructuring. Three departments were created: The part-time vocational school, the daily school and the Higher School of Fine Arts. It was then renamed as the "School of Industrial and Fine Arts". The word "arts" was used for fine arts as well as engineering. This created a tradition as NTUA today includes a Department of Architecture and maintains close links with the School of Fine Arts, which has in the meantime become a separate independent establishment.
The School of Industrial and Fine Arts rapidly evolved towards a major higher education institution, a Technical University with a large number of students and a rich curriculum in scientific and professional courses. In 1873 it moved to its new "suburban campus" in Patission street (then in the outskirts of the capital) and was renamed (unofficially) as "Ethnicon Metsovion Polytechnion".
NTUA took its present form in 1917 by special law that organized it into the Higher Schools of Civil Engineers, Mechanical & Electrical Engineers, Chemical Engineers, Surveying Engineers and Architecture. Up to the 1950s, NTUA was the only University in Greece offering degrees in engineering.
NTUA students were in the front line of popular struggles, with highlights the National Resistance under the German occupation (1941-44) and the more recent struggle against the Colonels' dictatorship (1967-74). The Polytechnion Uprising of the 17th November 1973 is an outstanding event in recent Greek history. NTUA honored the victims of the Uprising with a monument within its courtyard, opposite the gate which the tanks of the dictatorship demolished that night.
Today, NTUA is divided into nine academic Schools, eight being for the engineering sciences, including architecture, and one for the general sciences. The personnel of the nine Faculties include more than 700 people as academic staff, 140 scientific assistants and 260 administrative and technical staff. The total number of NTUA employees is about 1350. The total number of undergraduate students is about 8500 and the graduate students 1500.
Furthermore, there are currently 19 Departmental or Inter-Departmental Postgraduate Courses, coordinated by N.T.U.A. Departments, leading to the respective "Post Graduate Specialisation Diploma", with a minimum duration of 17 months. Moreover, N.T.U.A participates in 9 Post-graduate Programmes coordinated by other Greek Universities. After the acquisition of the "Post Graduate Specialisation Diploma", the student can proceed towards submitting a Doctorate Thesis. The time required for the completion of a Ph.D. programme, including the eventual obtainment of a Postgraduate Diploma, ranges from a minimum of 3 years to a maximum of 6 years. There are approximately 60 Ph.D. nominations every year in the NTUA.

School of Mechanical Engineering

By 1914 the faculties included in NTUA were Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Architecture, Electrical Engineering and Telegraphic Engineering, all of them being four-year courses of highest educational level. In accordance with the law of 1914, lower level courses were removed to elementary education schools. In accordance with legislation passed on in 1917, the National Technical University of Athens included the Highest Department of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and Highest Departments for Architects, Chemical Engineers and Surveyors. In the Department of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering new courses were inserted and new laboratories were set up. The courses offered were all obligatory but in 1960 and thereafter the department was divided into specialized sections. Thus in 1963, the division of Production Engineering was created and in 1968 the division of Naval Engineering.
Finally, in 1975, the Department of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering was divided into two independent departments. The Department of Mechanical Engineering included the divisions of Production Engineering and Naval Engineering. With the application of the Enabling Law of 1982, the Department of Mechanical Engineering includes the following six Sections:
      - Section of Manufacturing Technology.
      - Section of Industrial Management & Operational Research.
      - Section of Thermal Engineering.
      - Section of Mechanical Design & Automatic Control.
      - Section of Nuclear Engineering.
      - Section of Fluids.
The division of Naval Engineering was separated from the Department of Mechanical Engineering thus forming an independent Department. In 1986, the following two cycles of courses were created:
      - The cycle for Energy Mechanical Engineers.
      - The cycle for Constructions Mechanical Engineers.
In 1990 a cycle for Aircraft-Mechanical Engineers has been created. The above three cycles with a fourth cycle for Production Engineers provide to the students a freedom to select courses and choose the direction of their studies. There are laboratories for the training of the students and for research carried out by the teaching staff so as to satisfy the following three main requirements:
      - Educational work, which includes teaching, tutorials, laboratory training, seminars and dissertations.
      - Research and postgraduate studies (PhD) carried out in the six Sections of the School.
      - Social work referring to the development of Technology and cooperation with Industrial, Public and private Institutions. In the following chapters more details are given about the educational and research activities of the School.
