The congress brings together manufacturing researchers in academia and industry to highlight the importance of applied and theoretical research in manufacturing environments across the globe. Research results will be presented and help transferring research into practice will be provided.
"Given the large volume of international business accomplished by Rochester industry, we consider this a great opportunity to bring world-wide industries and international academics together in our community," says Guy Johnson, RIT professor of manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology and chair of World Manufacturing Congress 2001. "Rochester will continue to be a part of this ongoing global dialog in manufacturing and we’re pleased to host this global event at Rochester Institute of Technology."
Sponsored by the International Computer Science Conventions, the congress meets every other year. It last convened two years ago in England. In 2003, it will meet in Japan.
