Quality papers will be selected for fast-track publication in the "Journal of Manufacturing Systems" (JMS) or the "Journal of Manufacturing Processes" (JMP).

Option for Industrial Authors

Authors from industry can submit full papers until Nov. 30, 2016. Authors from industry who do not get permission to submit full papers are allowed to submit an abstract for “presentation only” at NAMRC 45. For abstract submission in this case, industrial authors should also use the paper template, but provide title, authors, affiliations and abstract only; however, these abstracts will not appear in the NAMRC proceedings.


For general questions regarding paper submissions, please contact the NAMRI/SME Scientific Committee Chair Lihui Wang, PhD, FSME, PE, or Chair-Elect Livan Fratini, PhD.
