Latest Updates
  • Thank You!

    APMS 2019 was a great success. Thank you all for attending the conference and creating wonderful memories for all of us. Hope you enjoyed your stay in Austin. See you next year in Novi Sad!

  • Transportation

    The easiest way to get to the Hilton (or any other hotel downtown Austin) is taxi or Ride Apps (such as Uber&Lift). It takes you about 20 minutes to get to the Hilton and the fare is $22-$25 (for Ride Apps) depending on the time of the day. Taxis are slightly more expensive than Uber&Lift. The city buses also operate between the airport and downtown but it takes you longer to get to your hotel if you take a bus. If you are staying downtown Austin, you don’t need to rent a car because finding a parking spot is always challenging (and sometimes expensive).

  • Group Rate

    Please note that August 5th is the last day you can book you hotel room and still receive the group rate.

  • Conference Program

    Conference Program will be made available on the website on July 15th.

  • Hilton

    Please not that June 30th is the deadline for submitting camera-ready papers and the signed copyright form. Thank you for timely submission of the final version of your papers. Make sure your camera-ready version complies with Springer's guidelines in terms of formatting.

  • Hilton

    The block of 50 rooms we reserved at the Hilton was sold out on June 18th but we added another block of rooms with the conference rate ( ($159.00 for 1 King Bed or 2 Queen Beds) so you can continue booking your rooms with the Hilton. Please make your reservations while the supply lasts.

  • Industry Tours

    We are pleased to inform you that we have arranged for two interesting Industry Tours for Thursday, September 5th: 1- EOS North America (Departing from Hilton at 9:00 AM on September 5th , Tour Duration: about 2 hours, Returning to Hilton ) 2- Amazon Fulfillment Center (Departing from Hilton at 9:00 AM on September 5th , Tour Duration: about 2 hours, Returning to Hilton) Please select the tour you are interested in during registration.

The conference features several sessions filled with original, high-impact academic contributions, which will be published in the Springer Series ACIT.  Industrial viewpoints and insights will be shared through industry keynotes by world renown industry leaders.  High quality papers will be fast tracked to several peer reviewed archival journals, including Production Planning and Control (PPC).
