Dear colleagues and friends

The 8th International Precision Assembly Seminar IPASÂ’2018 will be held in Chamonix, France, from 14 to 16 January 2018.

The Seminar will continue the tradition of bringing together the international research and industrial communities in precision assembly processes and systems. The 8th edition of the seminar will have a specific focus on informatics and digital technologies for precision assembly. This includes research in areas such as robotics and automation, metrology, data analytics and other topics.

Papers are invited in but are not limited to the following thematic areas:
   Robotics and robot applications for assembly
   Metrology assisted large scale assembly
   Design for assembly and disassembly
   Control methods for precision assembly
   Product key characteristics and tolerances in assembly
   Design of assembly systems
   Assembly actuators and sensors
   Precision joining operations
   Variability and uncertainty in assembly
   Data analytics for product and process monitoring
   Standardisation for precision assembly including grippers, handling, tooling and application software
   Processes and systems for disassembly
   Distributed and collaborative networks in assembly
   Metrology and quality control
   Parts sorting and feeding
   Novel system integration approaches/techniques
   Connected assembly equipment and systems utilising the IIoT
   Industrial applications in different sectors including aerospace and defence, automotive, packaging and MEMS.

Originally conceived by the micro-assembly community, the seminar has now grown to include a wide scope of assembly processes and applications from micro products to large aerostructures where precision, efficiency and quality are of critical importance.  The seminar will be held in the Majestic Conference Centre, a magnificent venue, originally built as a grand hotel at the beginning of the last century which is now a very well-equipped conference centre, preserving its traditional luxury atmosphere.

Detailed information on paper submission, seminar programme and other details are available from the IPAS website (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ipas-2Dseminar.com_&d=DwIF-g&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=npzYxKjSNoibBI_uXE7Rd1WUMffjn3FNl-kcdKkmd6I&s=zaYc62iOl8zvwJMGBDXyLVMwrsRZhvK0E5r_pyKO_YA&e=).  As usual, selected papers will be published in a book by Springer.

Full paper deadline: 31 October 2017 (23:59 UTC-12)
Final Paper Deadline: 10 December 2017 (23:59 UTC-12)
