CIRP sponsored conferences fall into two different categories: Sponsored Conferences and CIRP Conferences.
Each conference of these two categories must have a co-ordinator, a sponsoring STC and a program committee.
Two CIRP Fellows (not acting as the organizer of the conference) from the respective STC have to be nominated to evaluate the conformance of the conference with respect to CIRP requirements (Conformance Committee). The Conformance Committee also supports the co-ordinator in all CIRP related matters. At least two CIRP Fellows shall be included in the conference Editorial Committee.
