Welcome to FAIM2022 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 31st FAIM International Conference, FAIM2022, is the milestone of 31 years of continuous presence in the international manufacturing scene. It also signifies a landmark in the Conference’s steering, organizational and scientific standards.

Wayne State University

FAIM2022 is hosted by Wayne State University, a premier research university serving a diverse body of motivated students in vibrant Midtown, the cultural center of Detroit. The College of Engineering is the center of Wayne State’s history of manufacturing research and Southeast Michigan’s history of global leadership in manufacturing, production, and automation.

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.
