International Conference on Sustainable Design and Manufacturing
28, 29 & 30 April 2014 Cardiff, Wales, UK
The publishing of the SDM-14 proceedings has taken longer than we thought because some authors have been very slow to produce final versions of their papers. Publication is now planned to take place in September. We apologise for the delay and any inconvenience.
We are pleased to announce the successful conclusion of SDM2014 organised by Cardiff University and ASTUTE in conjunction with KES International. The conference took place in Cardiff, the capital of Wales.
The Conference consisted of keynote talks, oral and poster presentations, invited sessions and workshops, on the applications and theory of sustainable design and manufacturing and related areas. It provided excellent opportunities for the presentation of interesting new research results and discussion about them, leading to knowledge exchange and the generation of new ideas.

Cardiff is well established as 'Europe's Youngest Capital' but its history dates back more than 2000 years to the Romans. It was once one of the busiest ports in the world, exporting the coal which fuelled the industrial revolution. Lively, elegant, confident, cosmopolitan, Cardiff caters for all tastes, offering everything from the excitement of a vibrant city life to the peace and tranquility of the nearby coast and countryside.A city with both heritage and ambition, Cardiff has a distinctive character, a good quality of life, and a growing national and international reputation.
