IMFS SEPTEMBER – Manufacturing and Digital Twins | 2nd September 2021

International Manufacturing Forum Series 2021 – 2nd September 2021 – Manufacturing and Digital Twins 


The International Manufacturing Forum Series is a major initiative from the Centre for Rapid and Sustainable Product Development (CDRSP) of the Polytechnic of Leiria in Portugal. This is a twelve day virtual conference spread over 12 months, with a one conference held on the first Thursday of each month. Each one day conference will focus on a specific topic within the broad umbrella of Manufacturing. There will be a particular emphasis on topics related to Industry 4.0 and Digital Manufacturing. CDRSP is a centre of excellence in the field of Direct Digital Manufacturing and was recently judged by an International Panel of the Foundation for Science and Technology to be the best Research Unit in the field of Mechanical Engineering and System Engineering in Portugal.


The IMFS 2021 September session on Digital Twins will promote discussion on Digital Twins and the advantages of their growing use in industry and in health applications. CDRSP has different research projects in this topic and we will share experience and research in its application on the optimization of direct digital manufacturing processes and tissue engineering applications. We invite papers which address any aspect of this emerging area. Examples of case studies will be particularly welcome. Please submit your abstract prepared using the template available here and submit using the form available here. Abstract will be considered immediately they arrive, so please send your abstract as soon as possible to secure a slot in the programme.
