Chennai (formerly known as Madras) is the capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Located on the Coromandel Coast off the Bay of Bengal, it is the biggest cultural, economic and educational centre in South India. Chennai is known as the “Detroit of South Asia” for its automobile industry. It is the third-largest city and fourth-most populous metropolitan area in India and 36th-largest urban area in the world. Chennai is one of the Indian cities most visited by foreign tourists, and is the 37th most visited city in the world.
Kanchipuram, 80km southwest of Chennai, was capital of the Pallava dynasty during the 6th to 8th centuries, when the Pallavas created the great stone monuments of Mamallapuram. Kancheepuram is famed for its numerous important and vibrant temples, some dating from Pallava, Chola or Vijayanagar times, and also for its high-quality silk saris, woven on hand looms by thousands of families in the city and nearby villages. Kanchi is easily visited in a day trip from Mamallapuram or Chennai.
Mahabalipuram is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Tamil Nadu. And together with Chennai and Kanchipuram, it forms ‘Golden Tourism Triangle’ on the shore of Coromandel Coast. This tourist destination has been listed amongst the UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its importance and ancientness of the sculptures and temples which depict its historical past and traditional legacy and also about the Dravidian civilization.
IIITDM conferences aim at bringing together academicians, scientists, industrial experts, and research scholars, cutting across engineering disciplines, in design and manufacturing to present and discuss their recent innovations, trends, concerns, practical challenges, and solutions. With rapid changes occurring in innovative design and manufacturing fueled by inter-disciplinary research and development, particularly among mechanical, electrical, electronics and communication and computer engineering, this forthcoming conference on design and manufacturing will provide opportunities for interaction among experts of various domains.
