STC and Cross-STC Keynote papers - CIRP Annals Vol.2

  • See the  Time- table and Procedure  above.

  • New CRediT Author Statement for Vol.2 to fill out

  • See all information on Keynote papers in our Internal Regulations Art.13 (Opening and Keynote Sessions) and App.6 (Point 2.2: content and length of the Keynote papers). 
    Please follow the instructions in the Internal Regulations, the Editorial Committee particularly stresses on this point: “Generally about 75% of the keynote paper should cover the state of the art and 25% future possibilities.” (see Appendix 6).

    The Instructions for Authors and the paper template are the same as for the CIRP Annals Vol.1. The keynote paper should be limited to 24 printed pages (references, classified in alphabetical order, included) extended to 27 pages at the stage of the submission on EM, because of the decrease of pages when finally published after the type-setters' work.
