The CIRP LCE Conference is an annual event organized by the International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP) with the aim of bringing together researchers, academics, and industry professionals to share their knowledge and expertise in the field of Life Cycle Engineering (LCE). LCE is a multidisciplinary field that focuses on integrating sustainability principles into the design, development, and management of products, processes, and systems. The conference covers a wide range of topics related to LCE, including eco-design, sustainable manufacturing, sustainable supply chain management, sustainable product development, and life cycle assessment. The conference features keynote speeches by renowned experts in the field, as well as technical sessions where participants can present their research findings, discuss their experiences and best practices, and explore new trends and challenges in LCE. The conference also includes poster sessions and workshops that provide opportunities for participants to interact and collaborate with each other. Over the years, the CIRP LCE Conference has gained a strong reputation as a distinguished platform where individuals from diverse backgrounds such as academics, researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers come together to exchange ideas and contribute towards advancing knowledge in the field of LCE. The conference provides a valuable platform for networking, learning, and sharing insights and best practices, and plays an important role in shaping the future of sustainable manufacturing and production.
