Gijón 2021 Spain June 23-34-25
Español   English


The Manufacturing Engineering Society International Conference (MESIC) was born under the patronage of the Manufacturing Engineering Society (SIF), to fulfil one of its founding objectives: the creation of forums for the exchange of experiences between researchers and professionals in the field of Manufacturing Engineering. Abstracts and full papers submitted to the MESIC 2021 should be written in English. Oral and poster presentations should be done in English as well.


Topics covered in the MESIC 2021 are broadly, but not exhaustively, classified into six categories as follows. Further topics are acceptable, so long as they fall into these six categories:
1 Advances and innovations in manufacturing processes
  • Moulding & Forming
  • Material removal
  • Non-traditional manufacturing
  • Welding, joining and assembly
  • Micro and nano-manufacturing
  • Additive manufacturing processes and technologies (AM)
  • Hybrid manufacturing processes
  • Equipment and Tooling
  • Emerging manufacturing processes
2 Trends in manufacturing systems
  • Integrated development of products and processes
  • Design for manufacturing and assembly (DFMA)
  • Adaptive and intelligent manufacturing systems
  • Rapid product development and manufacturing
  • Holonic manufacturing systems (HMS)
