The annual conference provides a forum for experts from industry and academia to share the results of their in-depth investigations and engage in interdisciplinary discussions about the creation of micro-manufacturing capabilities.

4M/IWMF 2016 Proposals

We are excited to announce that we have received two attractive proposals for the 4M/IWMF event in 2016 - we have a difficult decision to make!

The two options are:

•Technical University of Denmark

•University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

If you have preference please let us know by e-mailing Lisa Jones!

We will announce the 2016 conference location at the 4M/ICOMM event in Milan.
