Information about the global COVID-19 pandemic
In regard of the global COVID-19 pandemic we continuously monitor what renowned health and research institutions such as the German Federal Ministry of Health, the Robert Koch Institute or the WHO recommend. As we have all learned in the past few months, we live in volatile times in which long-term planning is often difficult. Unfortunately, for this reason we had to decide to hold the CPSL 2021 online instead of at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. This was not an easy decision to make, however, no international events of this size will be allowed in Vancouver in August again.
We are looking forward to welcome you to the CPSL 2021.

Conference on Production Systems and Logistics
The aim of the Conference on Production Systems and Logistics (CPSL) is to promote exchange on current topics and knowledge on production systems and logistics and to create an innovative environment for the generation of scientific ideas. Therfore, the CPSL is partnering with renowned research institutions, publishers and scientific societies. Leading scientific experts are invited to present their research results and studies after a comprehensive review process and to discuss them with other participants. The subsequent dissemination of the reviewed papers will provide a wide scope and support for future research.
Keynote Speakers 2021
The data driven enterprise – How to close the Gap between today`s and tomorrow`s business
Digitalization is one of the most important topics for each company in future. Data is becoming a core business asset and must be included as a critical resource in any strategic consideration.
The presentation will show, what companies have to do now in order to prepare and develop in the direction of a data driven enterprise, what hurdles must be overcome and if this digitalization-journey is the same for every company.
Challenges in Future Production
The keynote will give an overview of technological developments and how they will effect the management and organization of production processes.
For example robotic based automation, mobile robotics, additive manufacturing and 5G and their influences on the production of the future will be addressed.
The Biological Transformation – How the Convergence of Biology & Technology opens up a New Innovation Space for Sustainable Manufacturing
The biological transformation of value creation is the systematic application of knowledge about biological processes with the aim of enabling technology-based sustainable production systems.
Through the transdisciplinary convergence of technologies from the life sciences, engineering and materials sciences, this creates a new innovation space based on so-called biointelligent system architectures.
In order to ensure a high scientific quality the CPSL uses a new Peer-Review System, which has the benefits that all researchers can have an impact on the contributions while a baseline standard is set by an established institution.
All submitted papers will be reviewed in a two-stage peer review process by experienced scientists of cooperating research institutes (level 1) as well as authors of other submitted papers (level 2). This ensures a consistent quality of the papers and reviews according to demanding standards through the first step as well as an influence of all participants on the quality of the papers through the second step. Therefore, each participants commits himself to review a paper by another author according to defined criteria and to form an expert opinion. All reviews are monitored by the editors to ensure the high quality of the papers and reviews.
Program & Key-Dates
The programme includes presentations of the submitted and reviewed papers as well as interesting keynote speeches by representatives from the scientific community. In addition, joint discussion rounds after the lectures will create a forum for exchange and the formation of new research cooperations. During the welcome registration and a joint dinner, the participating scientists will also have the opportunity to get to know each other and to strengthen the international scientific exchange by discussing specialist topics.
The Conference on Production Systems and Logistics (CPSL) is an international forum for scientific exchange in the field of production systems and logistics. The annual conference brings scientists from all over the world together to discuss current research results and share experiences.
After you have created an account under Login, you can upload an abstract and, after positive feedback, a full paper. You will receive the feedback on the abstract and paper as well as the reviews via e-mail to the address that you have provided. In the login area you also have access to a paper template and a review template.
To ensure high scientific quality, the quality assurance processes of the Conference on Production Systems and Logistics (CPLS) are based on high standards that are continuously reviewed and can be influenced by all participants.
All submitted contributions will be reviewed in a two-stage peer review process by experienced scientists from cooperating research institutes (level 1) as well as authors of other submitted contributions (level 2). This ensures, through the first step, a constant quality of the contributions and reviews according to demanding standards as well as, through the second step, an influence of all participants on the quality of the contributions. Each participant therefore undertakes to examine a contribution by another author according to defined criteria and to prepare an expert opinion. All reviews will be reviewed by third parties to ensure the high quality of the contributions and the related event.
In order to register for the conference it is necessary that you create an account under “Login" and then log in with your data. In the area accessible to you, you can upload your contribution and register for the conference.
The CPSL breaks with traditional standards for stiff dress codes. For a pleasant atmosphere and collegial exchange, the dress code for the event is Smart Casual.
