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: The hidden structure of the periodic system

The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified

The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...

Im Focus: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.

The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...

Im Focus: Tube anemone has the largest animal mitochondrial genome ever sequenced

Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought.

The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923 base pairs....

Im Focus: Tiny light box opens new doors into the nanoworld

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered a completely new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. Using a tiny box, built from stacked atomically thin material, they have succeeded in creating a type of feedback loop in which light and matter become one. The discovery, which was recently published in Nature Nanotechnology, opens up new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.

Photonics is concerned with various means of using light. Fibre-optic communication is an example of photonics, as is the technology behind photodetectors and...
