APMS 2012: International Conference on Advances in Production Management Systems has two special sessions on Mass Customization

Apms2012The international conference on "Advaces in Production Management Systems" (APMS) goes into its 8th iteration in 2012. This year the International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP) has dedicated the event to the main topic of Competitive Manufacturing for Innovative Products and Services.  

Next to many topics going far beyond pure production management there will also be a number of special sessions. Amongst those, two are especially interesting for mass customization researchers

The organizers are still accepting papers for these and other special sessions so if you have some interesting research to share, submissions can still be sent in until May 15th. More information on the submission process and relevant dates can be found here

Even if you do not want to turn in any paper of yours, visiting the conference might be interesting if your field of work/ research is anywhere near innovative products and services manufacturing. The event will be helt in Rhodes Island, Greece on 24.-26. of September, 2012.
