The Korean Society for Precision Engineering (KSPE) was founded in 1984 and consists 10 technical divisions. Each division of the society contributes to national industrial development in precision engineering and technology area in various ways. The society publishes the International Journal of Precision Engineering and Manufacturing (IJPEM) and this journal is one of the major journals in precision engineering and manufacturing fields. From the IJPEM, emerging "green manufacturing" field was split to launch the IJPEM-Green Technology (IJPEM-GT) in 2013. Furthermore, the International Symposium on Green Manufacturing and Applications (ISGMA, www.isgma.org) has been organized mainly by KSPE every year since 2011.
