CMS2022 is the 55th edition of the CIRP International Conference on Manufacturing Systems organized under the auspices of the International Academy of Production Engineering CIRP (

Due to rapidly changing economic, social and environmental factors, manufacturing systems are undergoing a fast and deep transformation process.
To lead such a transformation, it is crucial to adopt novel value chain structures, new organizational and production paradigms as well as innovative digital and automation technologies.

We are happy to welcome you in Lugano and we are looking forward to an interesting exchange with focus on Leading Manufacturing Systems Transformation and the following challenges:

  • increasing the overall value chain resilience through adaptive and responsive supply chains,
  • exploiting the full potential of digitalization processes at machine, robot and system levels,
  • creating value through biological transformation of manufacturing systems improving sustainability,
  • promoting human centred manufacturing value chains where proficient adoption of technology preserves people competences and skills while reducing physical and cognitive loads,
  • integrating digital twins with industrial cyber physical systems to support manufacturing systems design, optimization, control and maintenance,
  • developing smart and highly collaborative machines and robots relying on advanced AI based communication, sensing and control techniques.

The CIRP CMS 2022 will be hosted at the Lugano Congress Centre – the same location as the CIRP GA 2017, in walking distance of the city center and its hotels.

The conference Dinner on Thursday, 30th June, will be held at the Congress Centre.

The conference reception will be organized at the USI-SUPSI East Campus in Lugano-Viganello. The new East Campus, inaugurated in 2021, is located in the city center and houses the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI).

How to reach us

The convention Center is located next to the city center within walking distance of a great number of hotels.

Car parking is available in the multi-store car park directly in front of the Congress Hall, located under Piazza Castello. Day tickets costing 17 CHF will be available at the Registration and Hospitality Desk.

Lugano is reachable by train from Zurich-Kloten international airport (2 hours) and by shuttle bus or train from Milan-Malpensa international airport (1 hour).


Most hotels in Lugano are within walking distance to the congress center or easily reachable by public transport. Everyone overnighting in hotels, youth hostels or campsites in Ticino receives the Ticino Ticket with guarantees free public transport.

We suggest to book your accommodation in time, since the conference will take place during high touristic season.

For your comfort, Amiconi Consulting SA has been appointed as official housing agency of the 55th CIRP conference on manufacturing systems.

Several hotel rooms have already been blocked for participants across properties of different categories and price ranges, located in Lugano and in the immediate surroundings.

By contacting the agency, participants will receive the complete list of selected hotels with prices and information about available rooms.

Every effort will be made to offer the best possible accommodation based on personal preferences and needs.
