INDUSTRY requires the rapid development, prototyping, testing, and deployment of machining strategies in order to reduce cost and achieve the highest quality. A key tool in achieving this goal is to model product development and manufacturing in a digital environment using a science-based approach, where the complete design and production chain of activities can be simulated and optimized before resorting to costly and time-consuming physical trials on the shop floor.

The 4th International Conference on Virtual Machining Process Technology (VMPT 2015) will be held in Vancouver, Canada at the University of British Columbia – June 2nd – 5th, 2015.

VMPT 2015 will build on the successful meeting of the NSERC Canadian Network for Research in Machining Technology (CANRIMT) held at the University of British Columbia in 2011, and the inaugural conference held at the École Polytechnique, Montreal in 2012, and subsequent meetings at McMaster University, Hamilton in 2013 and the University of Calgary in 2014. All were attended by participants from academia and industry.
