The ICAD organisational committee has found Springer Science+Business Media willing to publish the ICAD2023 papers in ‘Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems’. Papers will indexed by SCOPUS and may be dowloaded in the Springer database. Conference attendant will be able to download all papers without restriction for a limited time.
Professor Bojan Babic was welcomed to the scientific board of ICAD. Professor Babic is Head of Production Engineering Department at the faculty of mechanical engineering at the University of Belgrade in Serbia. He has an extensive history in academic research on mechanical engineering as well as Axiomatic Design.
The new date for ICAD 2022-23 has been set to May 31st to June 2nd. The conference will take place in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The conference will be supported by Springer Science & Business Media in the series “Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems”. This will include SCOPUS indexing. Details may be found on the revised website (available mid October).
On 19-21 July 2022, the University of Bolzano in cooperation with the International Association for Axiomatic Design (IAAD) organises a summer school on Axiomatic Design. The program can be found at the bottom of this page.

The most complete book on AD was released in October 2021. In this masterpiece, over thirty experts joined their expertise to gather all relevant knowledge of AD. With almost 700 pages, basics, examples, and calculations for advanced readers this is probably the best book on AD that was ever written.
The website axiomaticdesign.org was updated in October 2021.
