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.

“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/

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.
Authors are invited to submit draft papers reporting original research of theoretical or applied
nature. Final manuscripts are limited to 6 pages.
