We are glad to invite you to the 1st CIRP Conference on Composite Materials Parts Manufacturing (CIRP CCMPM), which will be held from June 8-9, 2017 in Karlsruhe, Germany. The conference is a great chance for experts from academia and industry in the field of composite materials parts manufacturing to present and discuss on a very high level their findings, which stimulates and supports the knowledge in this field.

The 1st CIRP Conference on Composite Materials Parts Manufacturing is the result of an equally named CIRP Collaborative Working Group which was founded in August 2015 by Professors Fleischer, Teti and Möhring. The topics “Design and Lifecylce”, “Part Generation” and “Part Finishing and Assembly” have been equally discussed in every meeting since the formation of the CWG and there has always been a focus of industrial use-cases, too. The first CIRP CCMPM follows up on this path and offers three parallel sessions concerning the aforementioned topics. The highest scientific standards and the success of the whole conference is guaranteed by an international scientific committee containing highly esteemed researchers of composite materials parts manufacturing and other related research areas.
