Dear Colleagues and Friends,

on behalf of the CIRP ICME '12 Organising Committee, I have the pleasure and honour to invite you to partecipate in the 8th CIRP Conference on Intelligent Computation in Manufacturing Engineering to be held in Ischia, Gulf of Naples, Italy.

The Conference offers you the opportunity to visit (or re-visit) the "green" island of Ischia, worldwide famous for its beauty and enchantment. Its peculiarities are well described by the 19th century French writer Alfhonse de Lamartine: Ischia is like a Swiss mountain thrown into the middle of the gulf of Naples and includes all the advantages of the mountains and the sea. (Confessions, Graziella, 1849).

The CIRP ICME '12 Conference promises to be even more successful than its four predecessors since 1998 by attracting over 150 delegates and guests from 26 countries and 5 continents. Participating in the CIRP ICME '12 should therefore offer you the exciting opportunity to meet, interact and share ideas and experiences with of experts in engineering manufacture science and technology (in a truly global environment).

See you in Ischia!





According to the new CIRP Conference rules, the CIRP ICME '12 Proceedings will be published on the Elsevier PROCEDIA System, dedicated to International Conference Proceedings, to provide a full worldwide dimension to CIRP Conference Proceedings.

The 8th edition of the CIRP ICME Conference will examine the applications of innovative and cognitive production technologies and systems and related methodologies for decision making implementation, including expert systems, fuzzy logic, neural networks, multi agents, etc., as well as hybrid systems combining one or more of these techniques as applied to manufacturing engineering problems.

The main scope of the Conference is to provide an international forum for the exchange of the knowledge, information, experience and results as well as the review of progress and discussion on the state-of-the-art and future trends in intelligent computation methods and tools applied to manufacturing processes and systems. Special sessions will be organised with reference to running joint research projects on topics of interest for the Conference (e.g. EC FP7 CP-IP “IFaCOM”, Fraunhofer J_LEAPT, MAE Italy-China/Italy-Hungary, etc.).
