The purpose of the IFAC Symposium on INFORMATION CONTROL PROBLEMS IN MANUFACTURING is to offer a forum for presenting results of the
international research and development work dealing with applications of optimization methods and automation, information and communication
technologies in the control of the manufacturing plant and the entire supply chain within the e-enterprise. This symposium will address the
scientific challenges and issues raised by the Intelligent Manufacturing System and Supply chain paradigms for optimization and agile digital
control of the entire production system over the whole product and processes life cycle, from the design, through the manufacturing and
maintenance, to the distribution and service.
Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
Design and Reconfiguration of Manufacturing Systems
Facility Planning and Materials Handling
Inventory Control, Production Planning and Scheduling
Monitoring, Diagnosis and Maintenance of Manufacturing Systems
Probabilistic & Statistical Models in Industrial Plant Control
Web-enabled Manufacturing Control and Wireless Automation
Process Modeling and Information Systems within the Extended Enterprise
Socio-technical and Cognitive Aspects of Automation
Intelligent Manufacturing Systems Modeling and Applications
Distributed Systems and Multi-agents Technologies
Discrete Event Systems in Manufacturing
Operational Research Applications in CAD/CAM/CAE
Industrial and Applied Mathematics for Production
Papers submitted to a special track or session, are those that focus on the topics of an announced special Track or session (authors auto decide). For a submission of this type, please use the āinvited paperā option in the submission system, and the code of the corresponding Track (see http://incom09.org/index.htm#Tracks) or session (see http://incom09.org/index.htm#Sessions).
Regular papers and those submitted to special session or tracks are considered in the same manner during the peer review process which is independent from the organizers of the tracks and sessions.
Indeed, the special tracks and sessions are organized to enhance some particulars topics. These tracks and sessions are open to any participant (not limited to only those already invited by the track or session chairman).
To submit a paper to a track or session below, please select āInvited papersā under the submission procedure, and indicate the alpha-numerical code of the track (marked in bold red) to which you intend to submit your paper. If a track or session has not an alpha-numerical code yet, one should just wait until it appears. By submission deadline, all the alpha-numerical codes will appear.

V.A. Trapeznikov Institute of Control Sciences of the Russian Academy of Sciences (ICS RAS) is the leading Institute on Automatic Control in Russia. It was founded in 1939 and for many years afterwards remained the only scientific organization in the entire Soviet Union in the field of the automatic control. Since the early 60s, the Institute has been actively participating in computer-aided industrial automation. Many large-scale complex control systems in Russia and other countries have been designed under the ICS RAS participation. For several decades, the ICS RAS has developed important research activities in diverse areas of the control theory and its applications in manufacturing. Many scientists known worldwide worked in or collaborated with the ICS RAS. The key research areas of the ICS RAS are: automatic control theory, organizational structures theory, system analysis and control of large-scale systems, control system reliability and efficiency, automation equipment, industrial system identification and control: real-time control, manufacturing, maintenance, robotics, distributed control, logistics, knowledge-based modeling and control, intellectualization of control systems and processes, information systems, and moving object control.
