Please allow us to send you this email to remind you that you are cordially
invited to participate in the 9th International Product Lifecycle Management
Conference, PLM12, on July 9th - 11th, 2012 in Montreal, Canada.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is an integrated business approach to the
collaborative creation, management and dissemination of engineering data
throughout the extended enterprises that create, manufacture and operate
engineered products and systems.
PLM12 will bring together researchers, developers, and users of PLM so as to
share recent developments, shape the future of this field and advance the
science and practice of enterprise systems development.
Contributions are welcome in all aspects of PLM including, for example :
• The influence of social networks on PLM,
• PLM maturity and improvement concepts,
• Collaborative product development,
• Capture and reuse of product and process information,
• Knowledge management and PLM,
• Interoperability and security issues,
• PLM educational and training approaches,
• SPECIAL SESSION S1 : Increasing awareness and understanding of information
and knowledge flows in PLM
• SPECIAL SESSION S2 : From PLM to Life Cycle Engineering (LCE)
As Canada’s first touristic destination, Montreal distinguishes itself by
its hospitality and infrastructure. Situated on an island, the city of
Greater Montreal counts approximately 3.6 million people making it the
largest bilingual (English and French) metropolis in North America.
Designated as the City of Design by UNESCO, it offers a large showcase of
modern design, art and architecture. Montreal’s summers are warm with
average high temperatures of 26 °C (79 F) and low of 16 °C (61 F).
Authors are invited to submit original papers of up to 10 pages in length
for review before February 5^th , 2012. Each paper (in English) will be
reviewed by three members of the International Scientific Committee. Those
that are accepted will be published by Springer in the conference
proceedings and may be considered for publication in the International
Journal of Product Lifecycle Management (IJPLM, www.inderscience.com/ijplm).
Submission instructions are provided on the PLM12 website :
