TMCE 2014 will offer a traditionally high standard professional program, as well as several entertaining social and cultural events. The focus of the professional program will be on Sustainability and cyber-physical systems. Participants from government, academia and industry all over the world will share their experiences and exchange views, knowledge and cultural values. You are cordially invited to contribute industrial tutorials, scientific podium and forum session papers. Students are also encouraged and will be supported with special discounts on their registration fees. A digital Proceedings will be published and selected papers will be considered for republishing in special issues of various international journals.
