APMS Talks

This workshop offers a platform for researchers to present and discuss their work on Production Management Systems. As the name suggests, the presentations are usually less formal than traditional scientific presentations, with a focus on discussion and exchange of ideas. A discussant moderates and inspires the discussion. While many presenters are recruited from the rich body of the IFIP Working Group 5.7, anyone is welcome to participate in the APMS talks and contribute to the discussion.
