ISPE Conferences

The first conference involvement of ISPE began in 1984 with the CAD/CAM, ROBOTICS & FACTORIES OF FUTURE Conference (CARS'&FOF) held in Charlotte, USA. In meeting an identified need of the researchers associated with those conferences, a second annual series of international conferences, Concurrent Engineering - Research and Applications (CE) was started by ISPE in 1994. In 2004 the 11th CE conference has been held in Beijing, China, 26-30 July. The location of CE conferences is different every year and rotates between Asia, Europe and the USA. These conferences have been a major forum for the international scientific exchange of various multidisciplinary aspects of Concurrent Engineering for Productivity Enhancement.
