The 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), India (2014), New Zealand (2012) and Thailand (2010), were highly successful and attracted delegates from over 20 countries.
For the first time, this global congress will be held in Europe, in the UK, to share new attainments in research and industrial practice between academic scholars and industry practitioners. This conference has always attracted high-quality research papers and continues to serve as a central hub where the world’s knowledge of manufacturing research is fused with industry strategy in a globalised market.
