Dear Colleagues,

this conference has become for some years now, one the most important
events in Europe for Rapid Product Development, Rapid Manufacturing,
Reverse Engineering in many application domains.
I would like to warmly recommend to have a look to the website and
consider submitting a paper.
This is a very significative event for our domain and a selection of
papers are published in different journals (mainly RPJ, Virtual and
Physical Prototyping, IJ Product development).

This conference is very well organised and we are always very welcome.

I hope that you would consider this opportunity and I hope to seeing you
in Leiria!

All the Best,
