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.
