SCOPE OF THE CONGRESS
The First World Congress on Intelligent Manufacturing Processes &
Systems
 (IMP&S) was organized by Prof. V.R. Milacic and took place in Puerto
 Rico,
1995. It was a natural continuation of a number of activities
performed in the past ten years, e.g. the International Seminars on
Intelligent Manufacturing Systems organized in Dubrovnik in 1985, 1987
and 1989, and the International Workshops on Learning in Intelligent
Manufacturing Systems held in Budapest, 1991 and 1995. The main
objective of the Congress is to provide a world forum to exchange
knowledge, experience, results and information related to various
aspects of the factory for the future as a challenging frontier for
manufacturing industry. The scope of the Congress covers
philosophical, scientific, technological and practical concepts
concerning research, development and realization of Intelligent
Manufacturing Processes and Systems, offering a unique opportunity for
experts to meet and exchange ideas in this highly relevant and
exciting field.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- design and modelling
- simulation
- rapid and virtual prototyping
- concurrent engineering
- reverse engineering
- life-cycle issues
- process planning
- continuos, discrete and hybrid processes
- process modelling, monitoring and control
- diagnostics and maintenance
- automated inspection and quality control
- high precision manufacturing
- sensor assisted machining
- production planning and control
- scheduling
- management decision systems
- distributed and co-operative production
- holonic systems
- assembly and disassembly
- robotics
- sustainable manufacturing
- virtual manufacturing
- enterprise integration
- globalisation
- educational aspects
- social aspects and job responsibilities
- new organizations paradigms
- applications of
 -signal processing, pattern recognition
 -expert systems, artificial neural networks
 -fuzzy and neuro-fuzzy models
 -learning techniques
 -global optimization techniques
 -hybrid approaches

PAPERS
Papers and proposals for special sessions are solicited in the areas
listed in the topics of interest as well as in other areas within the
scope of IMP&S. Three copies of draft papers (max. 12 A4 or letter
size pages, single spaced, clearly indicating the name and full
mailing address of the corresponding author) should be submitted to
the IMP&S-97 Congress Secretariat. Please carefully follow Important
Dates.

PUBLICATION
The Congress Proceedings will be available for the participants on the
spot. Issue on CD is also considered.

OFFICIAL LANGUAGE
The official language of the Congress is English with no simultaneous
translation.

HOST CITY AND VENUE
The Hungarian capital, Budapest, known as the ,Pearl of the Danube",
is a bustling city of over two million inhabitants. Its architecture
ranges from that left by the Romans to that of the present day.
Structures of historic character standing on streets with a medieval
atmosphere can be found as well as modern, well-planned, attractive
housing estates and commercial buildings developed in harmony with the
legacy of the past.

This ancient yet modern city in the heart of Europe has a pleasant
climate and is well accessible by plane, rail or car from all parts of
the world.

Accommodation from budget to luxury will be provided in hotels at/near
the conference venue or within easy reach.
