As a contribution to advancing research in the field of manufacturing, the Network of Excellence for Innovative Production Machines and Systems (IPROMS), funded under the EU Sixth Framework Programme, is organizing an IPROMS 2005, an International Virtual Conference on Intelligent Production Machines and Systems, for July 4 to July 15.
To deliver increased competitiveness for manufacturing in 2020, there is a need to focus research on advanced production machines and systems that meet dynamic business and value drivers. Emerging soft computing and intelligent systems techniques can provide tools to help enterprises achieve goals widely regarded as critical to the future of manufacturing, including rapid shifts in production from one product to another; faster implementation of new concepts in products; faster delivery of products to customers; streamlining of operations to focus on essential business needs and elimination of unnecessary and wasteful activities.
IPROMS 2005 provides a platform for presenting, discussing and disseminating research results contributed by scientists and industrial practitioners active in the area of intelligent systems and soft computing techniques and their application in different areas of manufacturing. During the conference, people across the world will be able to register as guest delegates and view paper abstracts and presentations and take part in the online discussions via the conference Web site http://conference.iproms.org
The conference proceedings will be published as a book and a CD-ROM by Elsevier Limited. In addition to the free services mentioned above, registered users can order the conference proceedings plus the CD by filling in the registration form and pay the conference fees. This will also allow them to view/download the full papers during the conference.
For more information see the conference Web site: http://conference.iproms.org
IPROMS 2005 is sponsored by the Welsh Development Agency, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and Springer-Verlag.
