IEEE International Symposium on Assembly and Manufacturing (ISAM)

The IEEE International Symposium on Assembly and Manufacturing (ISAM), formerly known as IEEE International Symposium on Assembly and Task Planning, aims at providing a forum for researchers and practitioners working on the diverse issues of assembly and manufacturing in various product sizes (from nano to macro), production scales (from workstation to global production network), and product life-cycle (from early stage product design to post-production). Contributed papers cover all aspects of theories, methodologies, applications, and case studies related to assembly and manufacturing in this context.

The IEEE International Symposium on Assembly and Manufacturing is sponsored by the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society and collocated with CASE 2016. Registration for both events will be housed within the same website. ISAM participants should indicate their preference during the registration and paper submission process. Deadlines for submission of contribution are the same as CASE 2016, and the review process will be managed by the CASE CEB with a special Editor assigned to ISAM.

The Symposium will be held on August 21 in parallel with CASE 2016.
