Design Science is a catalyst for groundbreaking ideas, transformative experiences, new solutions, structured knowledge and innovative use. It is an interdisciplinary domain that focuses on the development and application of scientific methods to designing systems and processes. It combines elements of mathematics, physics, mechanical engineering, bioengineering, manufacturing processes, sensors, computing, automation and control. Design science plays a pivotal role in fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and driving innovation in product design, ultimately contributing to enhancing the quality of life.

2023 International Conference on Design Science (ICDS 2023), sponsored and organized by School of Mechanical Engineering of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, technically sponsored by IEEE Shanghai Section, will focus on the new directions and achievements of design science, especially when new technologies such as big data, digital twin, AI are emerging.

ICDS's objective is to emphasize the importance of models and methodologies in Design for new technologies and applications. The conference is an opportunity for researchers, scientists and industry practitioners to present their most recent results, to discuss together new solutions, and to find out common interests for further cooperation. The topics include, but are not limited to:

Data-driven design                                                       AI for design

Digital twin-enhanced design                                      Model-based design

Design theory and methods                                        Model-based system design

Engineering design                                                      Bio-inspired design

We look forward to seeing you at ICDS 2023.​

Submission Guidelines & Ethics

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are kindly invited to submit full papers that include the following elements:

·Metadata – title, keywords, abstract, professional affiliation(s), and cited references in the bibliography must be included, and written in the English Language.

·Abstract – a brief and objective summary that previews the rest of the paper it describes. It should be succinct yet provide enough information about the paper to facilitate a decision on whether the entire paper could be read with profit. 

·Introduction – an introductory statement of the purpose of the paper, usually describing the hypothesis that will be tested and a summary of related previous work by others.

·Methods – the methods that are used to test the hypothesis should be given in sufficient detail that another researcher in the field could duplicate the testing.

·Results – the hypothesis should be tested and data representing the results of the testing presented.

·Conclusion – the data should be discussed and the results interpreted, and conclusions given.

Each paper should be no less than 4 pages. One regular registration can cover a paper of 6 pages, and additional pages will be charged. Please format your paper well according to the conference template before submission. Please prepare your paper in both .doc/.docx and .pdf format and submit your full paper by email with both formats attached directly to


Accepted papers will be published in Conference Proceedings, which will be included in IEEE Xplore and submitted to Ei Compendex and Scopus for indexing. All conference proceeding papers cannot be less than 4 pages.
