Workshops

Extension! Deadline for Doctoral Symposium abstracts-February 25th

I-ESA 2018 invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. The workshops are focused on recent research and industry issues. The workshop topics are very close to those of the conference, but should be more oriented on project results. The particular goal is to facilitate an active exchange between the speakers and the audience in order to encourage further research and to publish the discussion outcomes in the proceedings. Workshops should also provide opportunities to promote the results of past or present International, European and national research projects in order to facilitate the exploitation of these results.

Important dates for the workshops

Workshop proposals: November 4th , 2017
Acceptance notification due: November 16th, 2017
Workshop content publication: January 19th, 2018

Description of Workshops

Industrial big data platforms enabling enterprise interoperability for smart services (Full day workshop)

To bring together researchers and practitioners working on big data platforms, smart enterprise services and enterprise interoperability, and to identify and discuss achievements, challenges and visions in this field.

To answer or set out a roadmap for answering the following questions:

  • What are the current enterprise interoperability challenges in a data economy based on big data and smart enterprise services?
  • Which are the promising approaches, architectures and platforms for addressing these challenges?
  • Where are these challenges currently addressed (projects, standards organizations, research institutes)?
  • How do current reference implementations of industrial data platforms address these challenges and/or how are they lacking support?

Virtual Factory Operating System

The objective of this workshop is to show the research performed in the European project ‘vf-OS’ during its first year and to contrast with the research performed in other H2020 projects, academia and industry. The vf-OS project goal will offer a manufacturing orientated cloud platform, supporting a multi-sided market ecosystem that provides a range of services for the connected factory of the future, allowing manufacturing companies to develop and integrate better manufacturing and logistics processes including the building of vf-OS applications on top of its vf-OS platform.

Business impact of applications of Enterprise Interoperability

Based on Enterprise Interoperability (EI) use cases, the workshop aims to identify the business impact by externalising artefacts of methods and procedures to achieve EI in current approaches and applications. A group discussion on methods, use cases, and KPIs for EI as well as on requirements for enterprise interoperability management is foreseen. addressing current innovations such as in I4.0, IoT, Smart Services which relay strongly on interoperability technologies.

Contact:

Method and Tools to support the development of Product Service System

The objective is to understand  how to support enterprise management in the evolution towards Servitization and  Productization . Further, to discuss how the related challenges in a Product Service System (PSS)  have been addressed in academic and industrial domains. Solutions supporting PSS design, development and implementation will be presented.

Contacts:

 

Modelling & Simulation to design Advanced Manufacturing System

The objective this workshop is to discuss potential Methods and Tools based on Modelling and Simulation (M&S) supporting Model transformation in order to design advanced manufacturing systems. M&S of the manufacturing system can be the basis to elaborate and validate the Business Requirements to as well as to determine Technological Requirements,  not only in the IT domain but also in the domains of Organisation, Human aspects  and Physical means.

Contacts:

From Embedded Intelligence to Directed Manufacturing Decision Support

The workshop aims to clarify the manufacturing business requirements for ICT solutions to offer a directed trans-disciplinary information and knowledge sharing capability,

As well as to Identify related issues potential solution paths.

The following  ICT topics of relevance will be covered:

  • Embedded Intelligence: current capabilities and limitations
  • Software services for dynamic application development
  • Semantic interoperability frameworks for trans-disciplinary knowledge sharing
  • Blockchain technology as a route to information security
  • The role of augmented reality in empowering the workforce

Interoperability for Crisis Management: Increasing Resilience of Smart Cities (ICRIM 2018)

The workshop aims to provide an outlook of the research on how interoperability solutions for crisis management could increase resilience of smart cities. The workshop solicits interdisciplinary papers considering crisis management as a specific context where expectations about collaboration and interoperability are drastically exacerbated. Criticality of consequences on the one hand increases time constraints and obligation of acting, and on the other hand, implies to imagine specific collaborative approaches fitting with specific domain and specific actors.

Predictive Maintenance in Industry 4.0: Methodologies, tools and interoperable applications

The Workshop aims to promote and encourage research and industrial efforts with the goal to cover a number of topics related to methodologies, concepts, architectures, tools and interoperable applications for predictive maintenance in the frame of Industry 4.0. The main goal is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds to meet, exchange research and implementation ideas, and share experience and results regarding predictive maintenance within the Industry 4.0 paradigm.

Contacts:

Industry 4.0 Qualification - Higher Education for the Era of Industry 4.0

The workshop aims to foster the academic and industrial discussion about the future of education in the Industry 4.0 era. It will promote and encourage related research and industrial efforts related to methodologies, concepts, architectures, tools and interoperable applications in this area. The main goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners with diverse backgrounds to meet, exchange research and implementation ideas, and share experience.

Contacts:

Corporate Standardisation Management

The first objective is to contribute to the identification of best-practices in organisational standardisation development and take-up. e.g  Smart Manufacturing (‘Industry 4.0’) for the former and the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) for the latter. The second objective of the WS is to discuss if, and how, the standardisation environment of today will need to change to accommodate standards development for collaborative, smart systems.

Contacts:

Suggested workshop topics (other relevant topic proposals would be welcomed):

> Funded collaborative projects (international, national or European),
> Application domains of Enterprise Interoperability research (Product Life Cycle Management and product-service integration, Industry 4.0, risk management, e-health, Smart Cities etc.),
> Research in Next Generation Enterprise Modelling: Semantic interoperability models for configurable manufacturing systems
> Design of Integrated Enterprise Models for industry use (case based team workshop)
> BigData interoperability and Cloud technologies
> Standardisation for sustainable interoperable systems , standards management, open standards
