Dear Colleagues:

We cordially invite your participate in the 6th CIRP Conference on Industrial Product-Service Systems (IPS2 2014) organized by the Intelligent Manufacturing Systems Centre to be held 1-2 May 2014 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

The theme of the conference is “Product-Service Systems and Value Creation”.  As a result of the changing manufacturing environment, globalization and increased competition, companies are now increasingly integrating products and services into innovative offerings which create more value to customers, engage the end users more closely and generate more business opportunities. It is a win-win strategy which presents much potential as well as challenges. The IPS2 2014 conference will provide a forum for sharing of ideas and research results and networking opportunities. The International Scientific Committee will ensure high quality contributions and wide participation.

The conference organizers are committed to making your participation is both enjoyable and academically stimulating. 

On behalf of the CMS organization team members, we extend to each and every one a warm invitation. We look forward to welcoming all of you during the CMS 2014 Conference in Windsor, Canada.

See you in Windsor,

Hoda ElMaraghy & Jay Lee
