Call for Papers: Stuttgart Conference on Automotive Production 2022- Towards Software-Defined Manufacturing and Resilient Supply Chains

February 23, 2022

Welcome to the 2nd international Stuttgart Conference on Automotive Production!

The first Stuttgart Conference on Automotive Production was held in November 2020 under the theme “Next Gen Mobility Production – Sustainability via Reconfigurability” as an international successor to the previous Stuttgart conference on the future of automotive production“.

After SCAP2020 was crowned with success, we are very happy to announce that ARENA2036 will be hosting the second edition of the Stuttgart Conference on Automotive Production together with the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units (ISW) of the University of Stuttgart.

The aim of the  conference is to address advanced technologies in robotics & automation, logistics and manufacturing innovations for future automotive production. The theme of this year’s conference is: 

SCAP2022 will take place from November 16 – 18, 2022 at the research campus ARENA2036 in Stuttgart, Germany and will provide the opportunity for national and international scientists to present their latest research results, to exchange ideas, to establish new networks and to promote the exchange of information between science and practice.
