Conference vision

“Capturing Dynamics of Production Networks: Combining Agility, Innovation and Quality”

In a world constantly looking for new products and technologies, the production of goods has become strongly dependent on research and the creation of knowledge. So, the knowledge has become today’s key resource and tomorrow’s main hope for a sustainable development. In such a context, for creating economic value and social prosperity, production research has to generate knowledge sensitive to society’s needs and transferable “just in time” to the economic environment by innovative solutions for products and processes. This can be achieved through “production networks”, environments where the stakeholders representing research, production and society should collaborate together and integrate in their behavior both the concern for innovation and the ability to adapt quickly to the needs and the context at both levels, technical as well as managerial.


Conference aim

Our conference intends to take advantage of combining two scientific events coming from emergent and complementary domains, namely production, quality and innovation engineering and management, in creating an environment highly stimulative for exchange of valuable opinions and contributions, by bringing together worldwide prestigious scientists and young talented researchers, as well as representatives of important organizations from the socio-economic environment.

We encourage scientists and professionals to bring to light aplicative and collaborative research that delivers solutions for the current needs of industrial products, processes and organizations, and we welcome scientific contributions that have the potential to become a part of the foundation for a sustainable production in the future.


Publishing opportunities

Papers will be peer-reviewed and the proceedings will be published in electronic format. The proceedings will be sent for indexing in Thomson Reuters` CPCI, as in previous editions. Selected papers (after review) will be published in renowned production research journals. In order for a paper to be published, one of the authors must be registered for presentation.
