Initiated by The Consortium of UK University Manufacturing and Engineering  (COMEH), ICMR has been the UK’s main  manufacturing research conference for 32 years and an international conference since 2003 – bringing researchers, academics and industrialists together to share their vision, knowledge and experience, and discuss emerging trends and new challenges.

With the accelerating globalisation of manufacturing in the 21st century, the urgent need to keep pace has produced rapid advancements in technology, research and innovation. ICMR solicits papers on both cutting edge theoretical research and its recent industrial applications with the goal of bringing together practical and theoretical knowledge from academic, governmental and industry organisations across the world.
