The 10th Anniversary European Concurrent Engineering Conference 2003 is structured around seven major topics. There will be parallel lecture sessions and also poster sessions. Papers suitable for poster presentations are those that require interactive discussion; otherwise, poster and lecture presentations carry equal weight.

The conference language is English.

Special student/university tutorials are organized on request.

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers reporting original work in all areas of Concurrent Engineering. Submissions for 
regular sessions (lecture or poster) include, but not limited to, the following topics

(You can submit your paper proposal by chosing the theme and emailing your proposal according to the chosen theme. This email with your proposal will be distributed immediately among the program committee. Secondly you need to post a copy on the special page review site http://www.conference-papers.org)
