Social Programme

Opening Session

We are looking forward to ceremoniously open the virtual CIRP General Assembly. After warm words of welcome, high-ranking representatives from the industry will give speeches. We are very proud to have BMW and MTU as exhibitors and look forward to their presentations on the latest advances in production technology. During the Opening Ceremony, outstanding scientists will be honoured with the Taylor Medal and the Nicolau Award handed out by the CIRP president. We are especially excited about the show act ’70 years of CIRP‘ which will take us all on a journey into the past of the most prestigious production technical association.

Date Sunday, 22nd August 2021, Time (CEST) 01:00 – 02:30 p.m.

Date Saturday, 29th August 2021, Time (CEST) 05:00 – 05:30 p.m

Get-Together for Accompanying Persons

In addition to scientific outstanding lectures and discussions, the CIRP GA lives from the personal get-together of the CIRP community, whereby numerous friendships have developed between members, but also between accompanying persons. In order to take this important aspect into account, the possibility of communication in larger or smaller discussion groups will be created, using the platform

This platform is a space where people can virtually meet, talk and connect to others in a spontaneous and fluid way by moving around between groups. This means that both individual and group discussions (in picture and sound) are possible in dynamically composed groups of people. The platform will be accessible for the entire duration of the conference.
In order to give accompanying persons also the opportunity to get together, we ask them to send us their contact email address if interested. Please use the subject „Report of an accompanying person“. Shortly before the conference, the access data for the shared meeting room is sent to the reported conference participants and the reported accompanying persons. A conference registration is not necessary for the accompanying persons in order to access the CIRP-meeting room.
