Special Issue Announcement

Dear Colleagues, we would like to announce our plan for a Special Issue, for papers originally published in Procedia Manufacturing, as part of the CMS 2021 conference proceedings. The title of the Special Issue will be "Towards Digitalized Manufacturing 4.0".

In particular, the CIRP CMS 2021 Scientific Committee will select high-quality papers published in Procedia Manufacturing, and their authors will be invited to expand their manuscripts, taking into consideration the following rules:

  1. The extended papers should differ significantly in both title and contents before they can be considered for publication.
  2. The extended papers must contain at least 70% original content.
  3. The authors will need to provide a copyright permission form for material (figures, tables and significant portions of text) used from the corresponding conference paper in composing the extended manuscript.

The expanded manuscripts will be considered for publication in:

International Journal of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (Taylor and Franics publishers, Impact Factor 2019: 2.861)

Important Note: More information about the submission process and the important dates for the Special Issue(s) will be communicated to the conference participants in due course.
