IWOLIA: A conference bringing together German Industrie 4.0 and French Industrie du Futur

09.04.2018

How can smart systems be connected, even across locations, to increase efficiency and performance? How can they be protected against cyber attacks? And how can humans and machines collaborate successfully in the context of Industrie 4.0? These are the questions addressed by the "International Workshop on Optimization in Logistics and Industrial Applications" (IWOLIA) from 3 to 4 May 2018 in Karlsruhe. For interested business representatives and scientists, participation is free of charge after prior registration.

The Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, Systems Engineering and Image Analysis IOSB and the Technical University of Troyes (UTT) are the co-organizers of the conference, which is being held for the ninth time, but for the first time in Germany. High-ranking representatives of French and German chambers of industry and commerce as well as the technology region and the city of Karlsruhe will attend.

Promotion of cross-border cooperation

"Everywhere in the world, developments are moving towards highly networked, intelligent logistics and production processes," says Dr. Thomas Usländer of the Fraunhofer IOSB, one of the conference leaders. "IWOLIA 2018 will specifically address industrial and scientific representatives of Industrie 4.0 and Industrie du Futur in order to discuss the German and French perspectives on the topic".

The aim is to promote cross-border cooperation, also in the course of expected Franco-German research programs. "We are delighted that we have now been able to bring the workshop to Karlsruhe and make it accessible to a new audience," Usländer continues.

Conference language is English

Sponsoring partners are: ADDI-DATA GmbH, norelem, PhE Conseil, the Karlsruhe Technology Region and the Economic Development Agency of the City of Karlsruhe.

The event is aimed at participants from research, science and industry as well as small and medium-sized enterprises who want to find out about current developments in the fields of smart manufacturing, the factory of the future and cyber-physical systems. The conference will be held in English. Further information and registration: https://iwolia2018.sciencesconf.org

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is the leading organization for applied research in Europe. Its research activities are conducted by 70 institutes and research units at locations throughout Germany. One of these is the Fraunhofer Institute for Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploration IOSB, which has around 500 employees at sites in Karlsruhe, Ettlingen, Illmenau, Lemgo, Görlitz and Bejing. Its research focuses on Smart Production, information management and multi-sensor systems that support people in perceiving and interacting with their environment. https://www.iosb.fraunhofer.de

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
