The exact details can be found here:

Submissions welcome. Topics of interest include:

  • Open Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Platform. 
  • Embedded plug-and-produce device controllers. 
  • Frameworks and reference architectures for modular plug-and-produce automation systems (service-oriented architecture, cloud architecture etc.) 
  • Automatic discovery and registration of automation devices using ‘Plugand-Produce’ device service wrappers (OPC-UA).
  • Standardisation in communication protocols, semantic interface description, equipment description, product requirements specification, process execution etc (OPC-UA, AutomationML, etc).
  • Protocols for exchanging production system information with higher level plant management systems. 
  • Integration of automatic monitoring and energy optimisation methodology for ‘Plug-and-Produce’ systems. 
  • Monitoring and model learning methods for rapid changeover, integration and optimisation strategies. 

Paper submission deadline is 15th April 2018.
