The International Conference on Manufacturing Research (ICMR 2021) will be hosted by the University of Derby from the 7 to the 10 September 2021. It will include keynote presentations by internationally renowned researchers and industrialists, as well as papers from academia and industry, exploring all core areas of advanced and digital manufacturing engineering.

Initiated by the Consortium of UK University Manufacturing and Engineering (COMEH), ICMR has been the UK’s main manufacturing research conference for 35 years and an international conference since 2003 – bringing researchers, academics and industrialists together to share their vision, innovation, knowledge and experience, and discuss emerging trends and new challenges.
