2023 CCToMM Symposium Attendees

Welcome to the CCToMM Homepage

The Canadian Committee for the Theory of Machines and Mechanisms (CCToMM) was formally recognized as a national committee member of the International Federation for the Theory of Machines and Mechanisms (IFToMM) at the Third World Congress on Theory of Machines and Mechanisms, held in Dubrovnik in 1971. CCToMM, as a national committee member of IFToMM, shares the objectives of the latter, namely, the promotion of the development in the field of machines and mechanisms by theoretical and experimental research and its applications to practice. (Art. 2.1 of the IFToMM Constitution)

The field of interest to CCToMM being so broad, including various subfields of special interest to IFToMM, namely:

  • Computer-Aided Design Methods
  • Dynamics of Machine Systems
  • Gears and Power Transmissions
  • Robots and Manipulators
  • Mechatronics
  • Micromechanisms

CCToMM produces a Newsletter, which is intended as a channel of communication between the Executive Council and the CCToMM members, in addition to serving as a forum for all those interested in the field. The main advantage of a CCToMM membership is networking, that is enabled through access to information on technical issues and, most important, through access to other persons with the same technical interests.
