Dear colleague, dear sir, dear madam,
I take pleasure in sending you, on behalf of the
Esprit Working Group on IMS, this call for papers for

 Intelligent Manufacturing Systems 1999
 22-24 September 1999, KULeuven, Belgium
 Full paper submission: 15 February 1999
 http://www.mech.kuleuven.ac.be/pma/project/imswg/ims99

It will be an accumulation of the activities of the Esprit Working Group
on IMS and of ICIMS-NOE (Network of Excellence on Intelligent Control

BACKGROUND AND SCOPE
====================
This workshop is the successor to the successful First International
Workshop on IMS, held in Lausanne 15-17 April 1998. Intelligent
Manufacturing Systems 1999 builds on this success, providing a research
forum where IT in Manufacturing has the center stage. The workshop aims
to
create a forum in which the criteria for excellence are tailored to the
industrial need to tackle real-life complexity with advanced information
technology. The emphasis is on IMS technology and complements IMS events
which are focused on the IMS Initiative itself. The workshop is
supported
by the organizations described below.

IMS Working Group
The IMS Working Group aims to develop strong cooperation links and
initiate systematic information exchange amongst teams carrying out
long-term research on Intelligent Manufacturing. It complements the
official IMS program of industrial R&D projects with a long term
research
backbone covering Europe and, through liaison activities, the
industrialized nations across the world. The Working Group monitors the
emergence and development of the next-generation manufacturing systems,
including the surrounding business and logistic processes, within the
IMS
Initiative. The IMS Working Group provides a cost- effective source of
information to guide actions from European industry, academia and
administration in this respect. The Working group is supported by the
European Commission. For more details:
http://www.mech.kuleuven.ac.be/pma/project/imswg/welcome.html

ICIMS Network of Excellence
The main objective of the Network of Excellence in Intelligent Control
and
Integration of Manufacturing Systems (ICIMS) is to pool together and
enhance the human and material resources of leading research and
academic
institutions as well as related industries aiming at the creation of an
infrastructure that will allow the coordination of research and
development, provide the leadership for new research directions
efficiently disseminate the new knowledge and help the effective
training
of professionals and students alike. The long-term industrial goal of
ICIMS-NOE is to develop and contribute the necessary tools so that an
Adaptive Intelligent Factory (ADIF) become a reality in the long run of
10-12 years. For more details:

WORKSHOP VENUE
==============
The venue will be Leuven, a city of medieval origin, located in the
center
of Belgium only 30km from Brussels and 20km from Brussels National
Airport. Leuven is widely known as a university town. The university,
founded in 1425, is the oldest in the country and it has 27,000
students.

The workshop will take place in one of the university colleges in the
heart of the town, amidst pedestrian streets with small restaurants,
pubs,
bars, cafes and shops. The historic and artistic past is present
everywhere in this charming city which is the true capital of the duchy
of
Brabant. The town hall, the beguinage, the numerous churches,
monasteries,
convents and university colleges are evidence of a glorious past and
lend
the town a medieval character.

Brussels may be the first city, Leuven is undoubtedly the liveliest.
Whether it is one of the numerous beer cellars of the Old Market, in the
restaurants around the famous Town Hall, or amid the peace and
tranquillity of the beguinage, nowhere has the fresh wealth of youth
greater vitality than in the city of the Alma Mater.
