Studying at Cambridge



The Symposium is organised by the IfM’s Centre for International Manufacturing (CIM) which focuses on strategic and operations management research, working closely with industrial and institutional partners. Expertise in the analysis, design and operation of manufacturing supply chains is applied across a wide range of sectors, from food and healthcare to automotive and aerospace. The impact of digital technologies on supply chains across all sectors is a major research theme as is the development of more sustainable and resilient networks.

24th Cambridge International Manufacturing Symposium goes online: 17-18 September 2020


This year’s Cambridge International Manufacturing Symposium will be an online and interactive event. It will take place as previously scheduled, on 17-18 September 2020. We will take the opportunity to extend our international keynote contributions and broaden access to offset current restrictions on travel related to COVID-19.

The new, redesigned format will feature facilitated and interactive discussion sessions. Two days of focused discussions will ensure the live engagement of participants from both industry and academia on the future of manufacturing supply networks.

We are not seeking academic paper submissions this year.

An overview of the programme involving main plenary sessions on Day 1 and specialist thematic topic discussions on Day 2 is available here.

All sessions will be by invitation only. To help us manage capacity, please register your interest for both Day 1 plenary and Day 2 thematic sessions. By registering, you will receive announcements on the event programme and information on confirmed bookings.
