The aim of the MANUFACTURING conference is to review the state of knowledge, present the results of scientific work, implementations and innovations, as well as to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of experience in the field of design and machines building, manufacturing technologies, metrology, rapid prototyping and virtual reality as well as management and production management.

Additional goals of the MANUFACTURING conference are the integration of the scientific community with the economic environment, enabling the establishment of cooperation with partners from industry and business, as well as with domestic and foreign research and development centers.

The conference will be held in a traditional form, i.e. stationary, but those participants who will not be able to reach Poznan (e.g. due to restrictions related to the pandemic situation) will have the option of remote participation (so actually it will be a bit hybrid form).

There are two options for submission:

a) Full Paper submission (oral or poster presentation during the conference, paper publication)

b) Extended Abstract submission (oral or poster presentation, without paper publication).

Author of the patent application: PL234446 B1: Method for big-lot production of glued laminated wooden panels, using veneers for the bottom and middle core layers and the device for manufacturing laminated wooden panels.


Prof. CUT, PhD. Eng.

He works as a researcher and a teacher at Cracow University of Technology since 2010, now as an associate professor. His scientific interests include coordinate metrology, portable coordinate systems, optical sensors, topics related to measurements and systems accuracy assessment, calibration of measuring systems and material standards, numerical methods in metrology (especially Monte Carlo method), methods for identification and correction of geometrical errors. He is an author/co-author of more than 80 research papers, from which above 20 were published in JCR indexed international journals, and 3 patents for material standards used for determination of probing systems errors. He is also a reviewer in many internationally recognized scientific journals for which he performed about 200 reviews and achieved a status of “Outstanding Reviewer” in few of them (“Precision Engineering”, “Measurement”, “Measurement, Science & Technology”). As a member of an accredited calibration lab he cooperates with many companies from different branches of industry (Volkswagen, Fiat Auto Poland, ArcelorMittal, APTIV, Hexagon Metrology GmbH, Renishaw, Carl Zeiss, etc.).


Prof. PhD Eng.

For over 40 years he has been associated with the Cracow University of Technology, where he studied at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in 1972-1978. He developed coordinate metrology as one of its pioneers in Poland, obtaining in this specialization the first degrees of PhD and DSc (habilitation) in this country and the academic title of professor. He founded the Laboratory of Coordinate Metrology, one of the best laboratories in Europe that works as a PCA-accredited calibration laboratory. He managed and implemented 20 domestic and 3 foreign research and development grants financed by the EU, Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education and The National Centre for Research and Development. He is the author and co-author of about 400 scientific and research papers, including about 200 publications, of which about 30 in journals indexed in JCR, 3 scientific books including one 475-page book published in a global publishing house Springer Verlag. For years, he has been organizing joint projects and lectures by visiting professors from PTB, TU Braunschweig, TU Erlangen, NTB Buchs, EC Lion, Univ. di Padova, CERN Geneva, which gave him the opportunity to implement new methods of education and research. His scientific, research and innovation activities falls within the Mechanical Engineering discipline and include issues of automated quality assurance systems, quality management, metrological aspects in bioengineering and industrial design, as well as implementing the idea of Industry 4.0, modelling of coordinate systems accuracy, development and implementation of new concepts of material standards and calibration methods.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer as Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering series. They will be submitted to, among others, Web of Science, SCOPUS and Google Scholar.
