About the conference

This conference will showcase past and present research of the IDC, and welcomes post-graduate students/researchers — from outside of the IDC — to share their work in a relaxed and inclusive setting. With themes, such as machining tribology and process monitoring, this conference warmly welcomes those involved in the machining and manufacturing sectors.

The conference will take place at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC). The AMRC is a network of world-leading research and innovation centres working with manufacturing companies from SMEs to multinational giants around the globe (About the AMRC).

If you are interested and would like to attend or present at the conference, please get in touch at machiningconference@amrc.co.uk for further details.

Keynote speaker

  • Professor Sam Turner – CTO of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult
  • Professor Adam Clare – Professor of Manufacturing Engineering and Faculty Director of Admissions at the University of Nottingham
