Congress and Conferences

CSME Congresses and Other Conferences

One of CSME’s primary roles is to train and update the mechanical engineering community on new advances and emerging fields. The Conferences/Congresses and symposia that CSME organizes or co-sponsors form an important platform to acquire and disseminate such information to its members. The CSME also promotes mini conferences/symposia organised by the Regional Executives and/or by Technical Committees at various universities or industry events.


To help standardize the organising processes, the CSME Board of Directors has established a standing Congresses Committee with the mandate to develop and promulgate a set of Conference Guidelines (click here to view/download the current version).

Congress chairs (or co-chairs) serve on CSME’s Congresses Committee starting two years in advance of their Congress in order to observe and learn about current Congress preparations and execution. The chairs remain on the Congresses Committee for the following two years to pass his/her experience to future hosts. The Congresses Committee works primarily through telecons and provides guidance during Congress preparations as required. It also recommends future Congress locations to the Board.

Scheduled CSME International Congresses

The CSME International Congress is held annually and promotes the communication and transfer of technology among industry, government agencies, universities and R&D laboratories. The CSME Congress offers a face-to-face opportunity for national and international Mechanical Engineering experts to meet, grow respective networks, discuss recent challenges, and explore technical/business problems of importance to the profession and its related fields.

Prochains Congrès internationaux de la SCGM :

Les congrès internationaux de la SCGM encouragent la communication et le transfert de technologie dans l’industrie, les agencies gouvernementales, les universités et les laboratoires de recherche et de développement. Maintenant tenu annuellement, ce congrès offre aux experts nationaux et internationaux en génie mécanique un point de rencontre utile pour échanger des informations en personne, discuter des défis de recherches, et explorer les problèmes techniques et d'affaires d’importance à la profession et aux domaines qui lui sont reliés.

Étant re-cédulée, la prochaine édition du Congrès de la SCGM (qui devait avoir lieu en juin 2020) aura maintenant lieu à l'Université de l'Île du Prince Edward (UPEI) à Charlottetown les 27-30 juin 2021. Pour de plus amples renseignements, veuillez consulter le site web :
