In 2012, two leading world-class conferences in the field of manufacturing will be collocated to better serve the needs of the manufacturing research community. In addition, a leading society in the field of tribology will be participating in this event. These collocated conferences will be hosted by the University of Notre Dame from June 4 to June 8, 2012, in Notre Dame, Indiana, USA. The three participating conferences are:

  • ASME 2012 International Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC2012) sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
  • 40th Annual North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC40) sponsored by the North American Manufacturing Institution of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (NAMRI/SME)
  • 2012 5th International Conference on Tribology in Manufacturing Processes (ICTMP5) sponsored by the International Tribology in Manufacturing Research Group

Because of differences in the conference structures and copyright processing, prospective authors are requested to pay special attention to the respective paper submission guidelines for the three conferences:

Please note that submissions of the same paper to more than one conference are not permitted. All submitted papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed by the respective conferences.

Accepted MSEC papers will be included on a conference CD as MSEC2012, and accepted NAMRC papers will be published separately on a CD as the official Proceedings of NAMRI/SME. In addition, a select number of high-quality NAMRC papers will be fast-tracked for publication in special or regular issues of SME's SCI-indexed Journal of Manufacturing Systems (JMS) or Journal of Manufacturing Processes (JMP). Accepted ICTMP papers will be included on the MSEC2012 CD or published on the Proceedings of NAMRI/SME CD as appropriate.
