Paper Submission Procedure

The CIRP CATS 2016 conference uses the Elsevier Editorial System (EES) which provides an online submission and editorial system for Procedia CIRP.

When submitting a paper, you need to follow some steps and also do some selections along the way. We have put together a short list below to make it easier for you to choose the correct alternative. 

  • Select Article Type = SI: CIRP 6th CATS 2016
  • Select Section/Category = SI: CIRP 6th CATS 2016

Please make sure not to mix up with CIRP CAT 2016.
As a last step in the submission process, please remember to view and approve your submission.

Go to the Procedia CIRP portal to submit your abstract and paper!
