Dear Members of the Korean Society of Manufacturing Process Engineers

As we enter the new year of 2024, we wish you and your family health, happiness, and love. They say 2024 is the year of black rabbit, which symbolizes good luck. We wish you good luck in everything you do.

Since its establishment as the Society for Machining Technology in 1988, our society has grown into the Korean Society of Manufacturing Process Engineers, representing the machining and production engineering fields in South Korea, thanks to the members’ contributions and support. In 2022, the Society celebrated its 35th anniversary by establishing a new office for the Society Secretariat and holding a commemorative conference, making it one of the best societies in the field of machining worthy of its name. The continuous growth of our society has been possible owing to the dedicated cooperation and efforts of its members. Once more, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all of our members. In the new year of 2024, we plan to conduct academic activities under the theme of 'Green Technology, Machining in the Eco-friendly Era' to shed new light on the role of our society in recent global crisis situations such as global warming. Our spring conference is planned on April 11 (Thursday) and 12 (Friday) at the Kimdaejung Convention Center in Gwangju , and the fall conference in Jeju around December. Furthermore, we will expand sessions to introduce the latest research fields and achievements of young scientists and female scientists, and promote the participation of industry and undergraduate students of the future generation to provide a venue for academic activities with multilayered exchanges and qualitative growth.

In the new year, we will lay a solid foundation by strengthening the structure and internal stability of the Society. This is something that I and many of our executives will be working on as one team. We ask for the continued attention and support of our members so that our society can develop further.

January 2024
Jun-Young Park, President of the Korean Society of Manufacturing Process Engineers
