    12th IFAC Symposium on Information Control Problems in Manufacturing Alexandre Dolgui -

    12th IFAC Symposium on Information Control Problems in Manufacturing:

    INCOM is a symposium organized by IFAC and mainly sponsored by the
    Technical Committee 5.1 on Manufacturing Plant Control and co-
    sponsored by 11
    IFAC Technical Committees. Previous editions of the symposium were
    held in
    Salvador (2004), Vienna (2001), Nancy (1998), and in Beijing (1995).
    The purpose of the IFAC Symposium on INFORMATION CONTROL
    MANUFACTURING (INCOM'06) is to offer a forum to present the progress
    international research and development work in this field. Special
    will be given on the applications of optimization methods as well as
    automation, information and communication technologies in the control
    of the
    manufacturing plant and the entire supply chain within the e-enterprise.

    The symposium will stress the scientific challenges and issues raised by
    Intelligent Manufacturing System and Supply Chain paradigms for
    and agile digital control of the entire production system. The whole
    and processes life cycle will be covered, from the design, through the
    manufacturing and maintenance, to the distribution and service.

    Scientific topics:
    * e-Solutions to Plan and to Design Manufacturing Systems
    * Facilities Planning and Materials Handling
    * Inventory Control, Production Planning and Scheduling
    * Monitoring, Diagnosis and Maintenance of Manufacturing Systems
    * Web-enabled Manufacturing Control and Wireless Automation
    * Process Modeling and Information Systems within the Extended
    * Information Management for the Net-entreprise
    * Socio-technical and Cognitive Aspects of Automation
    * Intelligent Manufacturing Systems Modeling and Applications
    * Distributed Systems and Multi-agents Technologies
    * Discrete Event Systems Simulation in Manufacturing
    * Operational Research Applications in CAD/CAM/CAE
