We are delighted to announce that the 18th CIRP Conference on Electro Physical and Chemical Machining will be held in Tokyo on 18th-22nd April, 2016. This will be the 18th meeting of the International Symposium for Electromachining (ISEM), which has been held every 3 years since the conference was founded in Prague in 1960. ISEM now takes place under the auspices of the International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP). The conference will be hosted by the Japan Society of Electrical Machining Engineers (JSEME) which will also celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016. The themes captured in this conference are becoming increasingly more important and reaching out from the ‘non-conventional’ toward hybrid and additive manufacturing processes.
