9th International Conference on Interoperability for Enterprise Systems and Applications, March 22 – 23, 2018
Growing markets, innovative competitors and fast changing technologies make it imminent for companies to interact flexibly with suppliers and consumers. The need for interoperability of enterprises is immense – one reason why I-ESA reaches broader audiences each year it takes place. Next year’s conference is organized by Fraunhofer IPK and will be accomplished at the instute‘s premises in the city center of Berlin.
To interact with others flexibly at low costs is vital for single enterprises to stay competitive in today‘s fast moving globalized economy. Consequently, interoperability of organizations is a major issue in successfully building enterprise networks. Moreover, interoperability will become a key factor when smart services inside organizations and autonomous factories have to cooperate.
Self-organizing production networks will have an enormous impact upon companies and their networks, and require new business models for modelling, testing, executing and managing smart service infrastructures. »Setting standards for business interoperability now is fundamental for the digital transformation and for a successful implementation of Industrie 4.0«, says Professor Eckart Uhlmann, Director of Fraunhofer IPK and host of I-ESA 2018.
Accordingly, the conference joins new business models, smart services, IoT and cloud technologies. Connecting the world‘s leading researchers and practitioners of enterprise interoperability and related domains, including interoperability aspects of enterprise systems and applications, I-ESA will be an outstanding opportunity to exchange experiences and business ideas between researchers, service providers, entrepreneurs and industrial stakeholders.
The program involves research paper presentations, prominent international keynote speakers, a Doctoral Symposium as well as pre-conference workshops. Two days of conference from March 22 to 23, 2018 and additional three days of pre-conference from March 19 to 21, 2018 will provide opportunities not only for businesses to get an insight into models and trends to prevent future crisis, but also for researchers to gain new ideas for research topics.
If you want to become a member of next year’s speaker community, please hand in your full paper until September 30, 2017. For more information please visit www.i-esa.org.
I-ESA is a conference of INTEROP-Vlab and DFI.
The European Virtual Laboratory for Enterprise Interoperability (I-VLab) is an initiative to develop networked research with critical mass in the Enterprise Interoperability (EI) domain and associated domains (Future Internet and Enterprise Systems Applications). Created on March 2007 as an AISBL (Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif) under Belgian law, I-VLab co-ordinates now more 50 institutions from 11 countries (including China) and over 200 researchers.
The Deutsches Forum für Interoperabilität e.V. (DFI) is a German association for interoperability and represents the German counterpart of the I-VLAB. The objective of DFI is to promote research and education in the field of interoperability of company processes as well as to support communication between science and industry in Germany.

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
