Call for Abstracts and Papers

MIMEC2017 invites submission of abstracts and full papers on relevant topics within Materials Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Manufacturing Engineering. Abstract only submissions are also welcome.

All abstracts and papers will be reviewed by the MIMEC2017 Chairs and Committees as well as guest reviewers. All accepted full papers will be invited/recommended for submission/publication in special issues or regular issues in partner Journals.
