Incorporating the 36 National Conference on Manufacturing Research

The International Conference on Manufacturing Research (ICMR 2022) will be hosted by the University of Derby on 6 - 7 September 2022, followed by an industrial visit on 8 September. 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 36 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. 

With the accelerating globalisation of manufacturing in the twenty-first century, the urgent need to keep pace has produced rapid advancements in technology, research and innovation. ICMR solicits papers on both cutting-edge and emerging theoretical research and its recent industrial applications with the goal of bringing together practical and theoretical knowledge from academic, governmental and industry organisations across the world.


Papers will cover many aspects of manufacturing with example themes including but not limited to the following:
