53rd CIRP Conference on Manufacturing Systems 2020

July 1-3, Chicago, IL, U.S.

Conference Scope

The CIRP Conference on Manufacturing Systems is a unique and outstanding series of scientific conferences on manufacturing systems. It has been running for more than fifty years and has, over the years, been held on most continents. The CMS conference series has the longest tradition within the conferences of The International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP).

The Conference’s objective is to provide an international forum of researchers a place to share and discuss visions, state of the art and innovations in the field, to disseminate the recent advances, views and perspectives, and thus, to generate a significant impact on the future of manufacturing systems. CIRP membership is not required in order to participate in this conference. 

CIRP CMS 2020 will be presented as a virtual conference, taking place July 1-3, 2020.
We are confident that via an online format, we can provide a high-quality platform for research discussion, that effectively represents the CIRP CMS series.
