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: How do scars form? Fascia function as a repository of mobile scar tissue

Abnormal scarring is a serious threat resulting in non-healing chronic wounds or fibrosis. Scars form when fibroblasts, a type of cell of connective tissue, reach wounded skin and deposit plugs of extracellular matrix. Until today, the question about the exact anatomical origin of these fibroblasts has not been answered. In order to find potential ways of influencing the scarring process, the team of Dr. Yuval Rinkevich, Group Leader for Regenerative Biology at the Institute of Lung Biology and Disease at Helmholtz Zentrum München, aimed to finally find an answer. As it was already known that all scars derive from a fibroblast lineage expressing the Engrailed-1 gene - a lineage not only present in skin, but also in fascia - the researchers intentionally tried to understand whether or not fascia might be the origin of fibroblasts.

Im Focus: Small particles, big effects: How graphene nanoparticles improve the resolution of microscopes

Conventional light microscopes cannot distinguish structures when they are separated by a distance smaller than, roughly, the wavelength of light. Superresolution microscopy, developed since the 1980s, lifts this limitation, using fluorescent moieties. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research have now discovered that graphene nano-molecules can be used to improve this microscopy technique. These graphene nano-molecules offer a number of substantial advantages over the materials previously used, making superresolution microscopy even more versatile.

Microscopy is an important investigation method, in physics, biology, medicine, and many other sciences. However, it has one disadvantage: its resolution is...
