Objectives

This conference, an annual event for more than ten years, helps the dissemination of information and exploitation of results from the research and technological development (RTD) carried out under ESPRIT's Integration in Manufacturing (IiM) domain and related activities. It presents the opportunities arising from RTD results and experiences to a wide audience. The conference also aims to increase synergies among those currently participating in ESPRIT while lowering the barriers to ESPRIT participation for potential newcomers , particularly SMEs.


Audience

The conference deals with aspects of advanced information technology in manufacturing, engineering, construction and the process industries. It is aimed at participants who are engineers, engineering managers, information systems managers and quality and process engineers, as well as IT suppliers/vendors, academic researchers, technology transfer centres and industrial associations.


Theme

Facilitating the deployment of information and communications technologies for competitive manufacturing (removing the barriers: technology; financial; human resources).


Structure

The Conference will have strategic plenary sessions, invited presentations, up to three streams of parallel sessions, and a plenary panel discussion on the conference theme. There will be a display of posters and demonstrations, and rooms will be available for discussions. A special Poster Session will encourage potential newcomers from the New German Bundesländer to participate in ESPRIT.
