Papers rejected in the Annals may not be presented in the STCs and CWGs.
 
 
Number of papers authorized per member in Vol.2 of CIRP Annals

The above rules for Vol.1 do not apply to Vol.2. Here is a sum up of the conditions, please read Appendix 6 - Point 2.2 - to have the complete conditions:

Each keynote paper must be led by a Fellow or Associate Member of CIRP who has agreed to undertake this effort. Initially, he/she acts as the coordinator and is to be assisted by a number of additional CIRP members and also non-members who have voluntarily agreed to contribute to the paper. Only active contributors who have written substantial parts of the keynote paper should be included in the list of authors.

Persons who have submitted papers to be referenced and do not play a clear role in the preparation of the paper should be mentioned in the acknowledgements. 
The lead author, i.e. the coordinator and corresponding author, should be the first name in the list of authors. Only in exceptional cases, can the presenter not be the lead author. This must be approved in advance by the Editorial Committee Chairperson. Only under motivated conditions which must be justified to the Editorial Committee in writing, should the number of authors exceed four (4). A member cannot be a lead author for two consecutive years.
