27th International Conference on Production Research

Cluj-Napoca, Romania, 23-28 July 2023

Welcome to ICPR 2023

The mission of The International Foundation for Production Research (IFPR) is to encourage communication among researchers of production systems and processes around the world, especially by its continuing support of the International Conference on Production Research.

Production research topics that have been addressed by ICPR participants over the last three decades. The first International Conference on Production Research, ICPR was founded as a result. The first conference was held in Birmingham in August 1971. Since then, conference organizers from around the world have felt the conferences sufficiently important to invest the time, effort and money required to run a successful international meeting.

In addition to the long-term relationship between IFPR and the International Journal of Production Research, articles from recent ICPR meetings have also been published in the International Journal of Production Economics. Also, ICPR conference Chairs have usually edited the proceedings from these conferences.

The 27th edition of ICPR will be organized in 2023 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
