Welcome to the 8th CIRP Conference on Assembly Technologies and Systems
in Athens 18-20 May 2020
“Digitalizing smart factories”
The Conference on Assembly Technologies and Systems (CATS) has returned to spark scientific discussion about Smart factories. CATS 2020 will provide an interaction platform allowing world leading researchers, industry experts and integrators to disseminate their work, as well as to exchange point of views regarding the challenges of Smart factories.
More specifically, the conference will involve a variety of topics addressing the global trend of product personalisation, which drives the development of modern assembly systems. Among the topics that will be discussed are: the design for assembly, human-robot interaction /collaboration in assembly, energy efficiency in assembly and joining, and ICT technology for assembly monitoring & control. Researchers who have faced challenges related to the realization of Smart factories are welcome to present their ideas for the improvement of manufacturing systems and join us in Athens, May 18-20, 2020.
