GCMM is a major biennial international conference for widespread dissemination of knowledge in manufacturing, management, engineering and technology.  Recent events held in Australia (2018), China (2016), were highly successful and attracted delegates from over 25 countries.

GCMM 2020 is very special for LJMU Liverpool and the UK as this will be the first time this global congress will be held in Europe to share new attainments in research and industrial practice between academic scholars and industry practitioners.

GCMM has always attracted high-quality research papers and continues to serve as a central hub where the world’s knowledge on manufacturing research is fused with industry strategy in a globalised market.
