Three main principles of MIM’2019:

  • To focus topics on real problems in Manufacturing Systems and Logistics
  • To assure quality scientific expertise
  • To obtain substantial academic and industrial participation for a much larger discussion and dissemination of results

MIM 2019 at-a-Glance:

  • Outstanding International Program Committee
  • Challenging Conference Topics
  • Top Quality Expertise
  • First-Class Selection
  • Rich and Diverse Program
  • Impressive Attendance
  • Worldwide Dissemination of Results (the Proceedings of MIM 2019 are published Open Access by Elsevier in the IFAC PapersOnLine series: https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/ifac-papersonline/vol/52/issue/13)

The 3 components of a successful program:

  • An Excellent Academic Program (540 presentations in 18 academic tracks with 121 technical sessions)
  • Associated Industrial Events (3 workshops and 5 Industrial tours at BMW, Fraunhofer IPK, Rolls Royce, Stadler, Siemens)
  • Outstanding Social Program

An unique feature of MIM 2019 is multi-disciplinarity covering 4 main scientific areas: (i) Control, (ii) Industrial Engineer ing, (iii) Operational Research, and (iv) Supply Chain Management

A side note: number of participants at MIM conference has been continuously increased for the last three events (450 at MIM 2013 in St. Petersburg, 540 at MIM 2016 in Troyes, 740 at MIM 2019 in Berlin).

We look forward to meeting/seeing you in Nantes at IFAC MIM 2022!

9th IFAC/IFIP/IFORS/IISE/INFORMS Conference Manufacturing Modelling, Management and Control MIM 2019

MIM 2019 Mission: Connect Control, Industrial Engineering, OR and Computer Science for better management decision-support systems in digital, resilient and sustainable manufacturing and supply chains in the era of Industry 4.0

The central theme of the 9th IFAC/IFIP/IFORS/IISE/INFORMS Conference on Manufacturing Modelling, Management and Control MIM 2019 is

Digital, Resilient and Sustainable Manufacturing 4.0

Digitalization, resilience, and sustainability shape current and future trends in manufacturing modelling, management, and control. The aim of MIM 2019 is to bring together researchers and practitioners in industrial engineering, manufacturing, operations research, supply chain management, and computer science to present and discuss emerging topics in modern manufacturing modeling, management, and control. MIM’2019 will follow a rich tradition of previous IFAC conferences and symposia in Manufacturing and Logistics held in Germany. MIM’2019 will focus in particular on the most innovative methods proposed in the last few years in the context of digitalization, risk management, and resilience in production and logistics systems in the 21st century.

The conference will cover all topics related to design, implementation and operation of modern manufacturing systems in digitalization era, including (but not limited to) the following:

  •     Analytics, optimization and machine learning in manufacturing and supply chains
  •     Artificial intelligence applications to manufacturing
  •     Blockchain applications in manufacturing and supply chains
  •     Business analytics for manufacturing systems
  •     Complex adaptive systems and emergent synthesis in manufacturing
  •     Control of manufacturing processes
  •     Control theory applications to production systems and supply chains
  •     Data-driven applications in manufacturing
  •     Design and reconfiguration of manufacturing systems
  •     Design for reusability
  •     Digital manufacturing networks and smart operations
  •     Digital supply chain
  •     Discrete event systems in manufacturing
  •     Distributed systems and multi-agents technologies

Prof. Dr. Dmitry Ivanov (General Conference Chair)
Prof. Dr. Alexandre Dolgui (IPC Chair)
Prof. Dr. Harald Gleißner † (NOC Chair) / Prof. Dr. Susanne Meyer (Deputy NOC Chair)

It is with great sadness that the hosting organizing body of MIM 2019 has to announce the sudden death of the head of the national organization committee, Deputy President of Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin Prof. Dr. Harald Gleißner. He unexpectedly passed away on July 8th, 2019. Harald Gleißner, professor of transportation and logistics and former dean of the Department of Cooperative Studies at HWR Berlin, was dedicated to making this international IFAC conference a success and of great benefit to all participants from around the world. He will be deeply missed and we shall honour his memory. We thank HWR Berlin’s vice president Prof. Dr. Susanne Meyer who agreed to take over as deputy head of the national organization committee in very short term and with great personal commitment.
