Welcome to the 30th CIRP DESIGN CONFERENCE

5th to 8th of May 2020 at  Kruger National Park Skukuza Rest Camp.

Important information

We have spent the past few weeks assessing the impact of COVID-19 on international travels and we appreciate your patience during this time. The South African Government recently enforced precautionary measures restricting travelling and face to face gatherings.

Elsevier mandates presentation of research work for publication in PROCEDIA CIRP. Hence, the CIRP Design 2020 organizing team has decided to host the conference via a live video-conferencing system. To download the program visit the conference program page.

The conference is taking place via WebEx Events, paper presentations are alloted 15 minutes and 5 minutes for questions.
You can download the manuals for using WebEx on the links below:
