iNaCoMM 2019 is the 19th National and 4th International in the series of biennial conferences on Machines and Mechanisms organized under the aegis of AMM and IFFToM. The conference is creating a cross disciplinary summit that transcends departmental, institutional, industrial, public and private research organizations and global barriers and lends itself to the integration of research and education in the vital field of machines and mechanisms. The conference aims at bringing together researchers, industry experts and students, working on various aspects of design and analysis of machines, mechanisms and robotics, to deliberate through oral, poster and design contest presentations on recent, novel advances. This year the conference starts with a one-day workshop, the topic for the same will be announced soon. The deliberations in conference will be in terms of oral as well as poster presentations. Besides this there will be keynote lectures by the leading experts in the field. Selected papers from the conference will be published in scientific journal. Further it is planned to hold Students' Mechanism Design contest, an event that became part of iNaCoMM2019.
