The 13th International Conference and Exhibition on Laser Metrology, Coordinate Measuring Machine, and Machine Tool Performance (LAMDAMAP 2019 https://www.euspen.eu/events/lamdamap-2019/) will be organized by euspen, drawing together many of the world’s distinguished scientists from all areas of science, engineering, and manufacturing. Advanced machine tool metrology supports superior part production, which enables, understands, and tracks the baseline performance and accuracy of machines. Whilst the trend towards nanometer level surfaces, finishes, and features progresses, the matching of both form and finish coherently in complex parts remains a major challenge. This year, the conference will focus on novel manufacturing technologies and machine tools, new developments in measurement techniques, performance evaluation for machine tools and coordinate measuring machines, roughness and machine tool standards, and metrology in new fabrication techniques, such as additive manufacturing.
The authors of selected high standard research contributions from the conference will be invited to submit their original papers and contributions under the following conference topics, which include, but are not limited to the following:
Novel manufacturing technologies and machine tools
New developments in measurement techniques
Performance evaluation for machine tools and CMMs
Roughness and machine tool standards
Metrology in new fabrication techniques
Robotics in shop-floor gauging

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
