The emphasis of the journal Robotics and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing is on disseminating the application of research to the development of new or improved industrially-relevant manufacturing technologies, equipment, and strategies. Preference is given to papers describing research whose initial feasibility has been demonstrated either in a real manufacturing enterprise or experimentally in a laboratory. Case-studies describing technology transfer and deployment from research institutions to industry or the implementation and scale-up of new technologies in industry, as well as review papers on topical issues in manufacturing, are equally encouraged.
Original papers are welcomed in the areas of rapid-response manufacturing, global manufacturing, flexible automation, mechatronics, computer-controlled machinery and processes, micromechanical systems, green manufacturing, biotech manufacturing, photonics manufacturing, nano manufacturing, robotics, rapid prototyping, concurrent engineering, life cycle engineering, CAD/CAM/CAE, integration of IT tools into manufacturing, and other fields involving unique manufacturing techniques.
