APMS Conference 2022: Smart Manufacturing and Logistic Systems: turning ideas into actions


Smart Manufacturing and Logistic Systems

APMS Conference 2022

September 25-29th, 2022 – Gyeongju, Korea – Online/Offline Hybrid

“Digital, autonomous, sustainable, and Interoperable systems”


APMS 2022 aims to bridge the gap between academia and industry in the development of next-generation manufacturing and logistics systems. The conference features special sessions to empathize with the real challenges of today’s industry, and accordingly, to exchange valuable knowledge and discuss about new way outs, while emphasizing how to turn technological advances into business solutions. The conference spotlights internationally renowned keynote speakers from academia and industry and the active participation of manufacturers and their suppliers as well as service providers. Therefore, practitioners from industry, researchers and lecturers are cordially encouraged to register and participate in this trendy conference.

The presented papers will be published in the Springer Series ACIT and indexed on SCOPUS and Web of Science.

The APMS conference is sponsored by the International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP), and it is organized by the IFIP Working Group 5.7 on Advances in Production Management Systems established in 1978. The conference is also supported by two leading journals: the International Journal of Production Research (IJPR) and Production Planning & Control (PPC).

Submission of full papers: April 15th, 2022

(Select the “Special Session: Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence in Smart Manufacturing for the Operator 5.0”)

The special session welcomes research contributions on, but not limited to, research topics like:

  1. Design issues for multimodal human-AI interactions in the industrial environment; 
  2. Digital intelligent assistants, software robots (softbots), and chatbots for production management; 
  3. Artificial Intelligence for the operator in the Industry 5.0 environment; 
  4. Explainable and transparent AI in smart manufacturing; 
  5. Methods, and tools to manage and monitor HCAI systems; 
  6. Applications of HCAI systems in smart manufacturing; 
  7. Business models and business processes based on HCAI systems.


The program includes presentations and discussions of peer-reviewed papers, in addition to insightful keynote speeches. The program also includes special sessions that help raise visibility on focus topics in a particular scientific or applications area as well as a Doctoral Workshop that provides young researchers the opportunity to present research proposals. The Doctoral Workshop will be on September 25th, 2022. Regular and special sessions and keynote speeches will be from September 26th to September 28th. Industry tours will be on September 29th.
