The IMCM'05 takes place at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria.
The main objective of this international conference is to drive forward
the research on mass customization and to close the gap between theory

new advances in mass customization. This can refer to theoretical concepts,
information and managerial tools as well as best practices for supporting
a successful implementation of mass customization. Ongoing or completed

are welcome. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
Track 1: Manufacturing systems for mass customization

The official language of the conference is English. Therefore, final

proceedings should be written and presented in English. In order to
facilitate the review process, authors should mention at the cover
page (which is not included in the word limit), their names,
institutions or affiliations, addresses, emails, and websites.
The first author is considered as the corresponding author unless
it is explicitly mentioned on the cover page. Furthermore, authors
have to specify the track to which the paper can be assigned. All
papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the review committee.
In order to maintain this double-blind review policy, no indication
that would identify the authors is allowed in the abstracts.
