•Essential mechanics of processes involving material removal, accretion and deformation, in solid, semi-solid or particulate form
•Performance characteristics of machine tools and machine tool work-piece systems
•Tool design, utilization and failure
•Significant scientific development of existing or new processes and machines
•Approaches to added value through geometrical/microstructural precision
The above list is not exhaustive and papers on other topics associated with process science/technology or manufacturing hardware are welcome. Significant and useful advance of the current state of knowledge is an essential factor and it is important that papers are presented in a manner that will be appreciated by both academics and practising engineers. It is unlikely that papers dealing with theory or modelling alone will be acceptable, unless a significant proven advance in scientific/technological knowledge is demonstrated. Likewise, papers in which the use of methodology predominates over technological advance would probably be rejected. Normally, multipart papers are not acceptable.
