What kinds of papers are published in JCISE? Of the almost 300 papers published in JCISE in the past seven years, Geometric modeling, including solid modeling, constraint solving, parametrics, features, assembly modeling and surface modeling account for about 30% of all papers. Computational metrology, tolerance modeling and analysis, CMM and inspection planning continue to present many challenges, as evidenced by the large number of papers appearing in JCISE, just under 20%. The next large group is from Computer aided Manufacturing, including CAPP, process simulation and plan optimization. Machining seems to still be the main focus of such research, followed by injection molding and solid free form fabrication. In recent years, a few papers have appeared on subjects related to micro-fabrication. In addition to computational techniques, JCISE also focuses on Information Science applied to engineering, as indicated by the title of our journal. Papers on engineering information management, data models, ontologies and data exchange have been another big part of JCISE. Recent IT trends appear to be in the direction of developing integration frameworks and collaborative environments.
