Due to persistent travel restriction related to the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Organizing Committee has decided to host the Conference in a virtual online platform. 

The complete Programme of the Conference including all paper presentations by speakers will be streamed live through a virtual online platform at Whova. AVAILABLE HERE


The conference aim is to provide an international forum of researchers from academia and industry, to share state of the art and innovations, to discuss visions in the field of modelling of machining operations to disseminate the recent advances, views and perspectives, and thus, to generate a significant impact on the future development of machining operations.

The 18th CIRP CMMO will be organized in collaboration with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana. University of Ljubljana has been founded in 1919 and is the oldest and the largest higher education and scientific research institution in Slovenia. It has approximately 38,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students in 23 faculties and three arts academies and it ranks among the top 3% of universities in the world.
