Thirteenth International Tools and Methods of Competitive Engineering Symposium
(TMCE 2020)

Dear reader, it may not come as a surprise that due to the COVID-19 crisis the TMCE 2020 Symposium in Dublin, Ireland, like many other events, will not take place as originally planned. We are pleased to announce that the digital Proceedings of the International TMCE 2020 Symposium is available for open access (public download) on-line on the Symposium's website. Please click on the menu item ‘Proceedings 2020’. The Organizers came to the conclusion that this form of publication provides the highest possible visibility and facilitates the citing of the individual papers, or the Proceedings as a whole, mostly. The List of Authors is also available for download in PDF format.

Dublin, the capital of Ireland, famous for its easy going charm and cultural heritage. The city is steeped in rich history, starting with the Vikings laying its first streets in the 8th Century through 700 years of Norman occupation, English rule and the formation of the Republic of Ireland in the 1920’s. Dublin has had a rich and varied history. Evidence of this can be found in every corner of the city. From a cultural point of view, that means plenty for visitors to see, from historic sites and landmarks to famous monuments and thought-provoking museums. We trust that this venue will provide excellent conditions for a professionally high-level international symposium.
