Objectives and Scopes of APMS 2023

APMS 2023 will bring together leading international experts from academia, industry, and government in the area of production management systems for responsible manufacturing, service, and logistics futures. This includes topics such as smart and sustainable manufacturing, service and logistics systems; data-driven operations management; digital supply networks management; and Industry 5.0.

The conference will feature sessions filled with original, high-impact academic contributions. In addition, industrial viewpoints and insights will be shared through industry keynote speeches.

The conference is sponsored by the International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP) and is organized by the IFIP Working Group 5.7 on Advances in Production Management Systems, established in 1978.

Papers will be published in the Springer Series AICT. High-quality papers will be fast-tracked to several peer-reviewed journals, including Production Planning & Control (PPC), the International Journal of Production Research (IJPR), and the International Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management (IJIEM).
