It is with our pleasure to invite you to participate in the 14th IFAC Workshop on Intelligent

Manufacturing Systems (IMS 2022), which will be held in Tel-Aviv, Israel, on 28-30 March

2022,  organized by Tel-Aviv Afeka College of Engineering.

IMS 2022 will bring together researchers and experts from industry and academia to give

an overview of the state-of-art, to present new research results and to exchange ideas

and experiences in the field of intelligent manufacturing systems.

This event will have specific attention to the latest innovations, on-going efforts and the

best practices in experiencing the Industry 4.0 era, smart factory and its cyber-physical

systems, intelligent inspection to monitor the manufacturing health, and on-demand and

customized additive manufacturing.  Participants will identify new initiatives,

applications, and research advances in the Intelligent Manufacturing Systems, and

demonstrate the ready-to-deploy technologies. There will be numerous opportunities for

networking and discussing the collaborative opportunities.

Paper Submission

Copyright conditions:

“All publication material submitted for presentation at an IFAC-sponsored meeting (Congress, Symposium,

Conference, Workshop) must be original and hence cannot be already published, nor can it be under review

elsewhere. The authors take responsibility for the material that has been submitted. IFAC-sponsored

conferences will abide by the highest standard of ethical behavior in the review process as explained on the

Elsevier webpage (https://www.elsevier.com/authors/journal-authors/policies-and-ethics), and the authors

will abide by the IFAC publication ethics guidelines (https://www.ifac-control.org/events/organizersguide/

PublicationEthicsGuidelines.pdf/view).

Accepted papers that have been presented at an IFAC meeting will be published in the proceedings of the

event using the open-access IFAC-PapersOnLine series hosted on ScienceDirect (https://sciencedirect.com/).

To this end, the author(s) must grant exclusive publishing rights to IFAC under a Creative Commons license

when they submit the final version of the paper. The copyright belongs to the authors, who have the right to

SESSION TYPES (with details on their related paper submissions):

INVITED SESSIONS – session code should be attached to associated paper submission

Invited sessions consist of papers focusing on targeted subjects and presenting a unifying theme.

Invited session organizers should submit an abstract that summarizes the aim and the content  of the invited session. If at least 5 papers are accepted, the session is included in the workshop  program as an invited session, otherwise, the papers will be included in regular sessions.

SPECIAL SESSIONS – session code should be attached to associated paper submission

Special sessions offer a venue for the presentation of topics of special academic, social or

industrial interest, such as emerging research areas or the most recent trends in manufacturing  engineering. The format of special sessions is more flexible; it allows a panel discussion, led by the  session chair(s), to motivate the exchange of opinions among presenters and participants.

REGULAR  SESSIONS

Authors are invited to submit draft papers reporting original research of theoretical or applied

nature. Final manuscripts are limited to 6 pages.
