CARV 2007

The 2nd International Conference on Changeable, Agile, Reconfigurable and Virtual Production (CARV 2007) took place in Toronto, Canada on 22-24 July 2007.

The CARV 2007 was intended to encourage discussions about the various aspects of the Changeable and Virtual Production and to combine them in a synergetic and visionary outlook, with particular focus on:
- Manufacturing Systems Paradigms
- Factory Planning and Control
- Product Development and Production Planning
- Cost and Risk Management
- Enterprise Design and Knowledge Management.

A total of 119 papers were included in the Conference from 17 countries.

The conference was organized by the Intelligent Manufacturing System (IMS) Centre and the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb). Additionally, it was supported by a strong International Scientific Committee to ensure best quality and global participation.

Participants found their conference experience to be fruitful and their stay in Toronto, Fairmont Royal York Hotel, to be enjoyable.

The 3rd CARV 2009 Conference will be held at the Technical University of Munich, Germany.
