9th CIRP International Workshop on Modeling of Machining Operations
May 11-12, 2006
BLED, Slovenia

Objective & Scope

This workshop series, initiated in 1998 (with the first workshop held in Atlanta, GA, USA), is sponsored by the CIRP. The proposed workshop follows the 8th workshop held in Chemnitz, Germany in May 2005.

The major objectives of the workshop are to bring together professionals from industry and academia to present and discuss recent advances in Modeling of the Cutting Process and Machining Operations, and to provide an opportunity for participants to develop networking interactions. The scientific program will cover formal sessions (paper presentation and panel discussion) devoted to:

  • Modeling of 2D and 3D machining processes
  • High-speed cutting and hard machining
  • Tribological aspects during cutting
  • Precision and micromachining
  • Dynamics and stability of machining
  • Monitoring and diagnostics of machining
  • Non-conventional modeling and optimization of machining by artificial intelligence methods, neural networks, genetic algorithms, etc.

Contributions are solicited in the above focus areas. All papers will be reviewed and published in a bound volume that will be distributed to all participants in the workshop. Following the pattern set in the first workshop, selected and fully reviewed papers will be considered for publication in the Journal of Machining Science and Technology. In addition, there will be a round table to formalize conclusions and recommendations for future research.
