Welcome to CMAAE 2021

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the city of Changsha and the Central South University for the 2021 International Conference on Mechanical, Aerospace and Automotive Engineering (CMAAE 2021).  

The city of Changsha, the capital of central China's Hunan province, has a history of more than 3,000 years. Today it's known for its rare collection of excavated Western Han dynasty tombs, known as the Mawangdui. Since major economic reforms, Changsha has become one of the fastest growing major cities in the world. Hunan cuisine is one of the Eight Great Traditions of Chinese cuisine and is well known for its hot and spicy flavours, fresh aroma and deep colours. Changsha is well connected by roads, river, rail, and air transportation modes, and is a regional hub for industrial, tourist, and service sectors.

CMAAE 2021 is technically sponsored by IEEE CCS Wuhan Chapter, and hosted by Central South University, which is a national university of China located in Changsha. It was established in April 2000 on the basis of the amalgamation of three former individual universities. CSU a member of both Project 211 and Project 985, two national key construction projects to support the development of top Chinese universities and it is also a Chinese Ministry of Education Class A Double First Class University.

In this edition of the event, we are delighted to have the opportunity to gather with leading academic scientists, researchers and industrial delegates in Changsha, China during December 3-5, 2021. It's greatly anticipated that novel discoveries, knowledge, experience in the field of Mechanical, Aerospace and Automotive Engineering will be discussed, shared and explored.

With the theme "Mechanical, Aerospace and Automotive Engineering", CMAAE 2021 aspires to keep up with advances and changes to a consistently morphing field. Leading researchers and industry experts from around the globe will be presenting the latest studies through papers and oral presentations. 

We wish the best for the Conference, its scientific program, sessions and discussions. We are sure you will find CMAAE 2021 a great success and greatly rewarding to yourself and your peers. We hope all participants will enjoy the fascinating sceneries and cultural heritage during their three-day stay.

We look forward to seeing you!
