Welcome to FAIM2023 International Conference

Flexible Automation and Intelligent Manufacturing International Conference series has been run in 26 cities in 14 countries in Europe, America, and Asia, addressing both technology and management aspects. The 32nd FAIM International Conference, FAIM2023, is the milestone of 32 years of continuous presence in the international manufacturing scene. It also signifies a landmark in the Conference’s steering, organizational and scientific standards.

Polytechnic Institute of Porto

FAIM2023 is hosted by Polytechnic Institute of Porto,  the most important polytechnical school in Portugal with more than 20.000 students body serving in different areas of knowledge body in a vibrant turistic and cutural center of Portugal. The Schol of Engineering is a strong support of the manufacturing research and development in the North of Portugal 

Theme and topics

The theme of FAIM2022 is, 'Human-Data-Technology Nexus in Intelligent Manufacturing and Next-Generation Automation,’pointing to its four thematic pillars underpinned by automation and intelligence streams:

  • Manufacturing processes
  • Machine tools and manufacturing equipment
  • Manufacturing systems
  • Enabling technologies

High visibility refereed publications

All accepted papers presented at FAIM 2022 will be published in Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering (Springer), indexed by Scopus. Alternatively, authors may opt for submission to Robotics and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing (Elsevier), InternationalJournal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology (Springer), or SME Journal of Manufacturing Systems (Elsevier), following a special "fast-track" reviewing process. A post-conference special issue for selected papers will appear in the International Journal of ComputerIntegrated Manufacturing (Taylor and Francis).

Comprehensive and balanced Conference Program

The program will balance in the right proportions high-quality paper presentations, high caliber keynote speeches, industrial visits, a varied social program exploiting the natural and cultural treasures of Athens as well as a taste of the greek way of enjoying life.
