ICPS 2018

ICPS 2018, Saint-Petersburg, Russia

The kick-off of a new series of conferences, the 1st IEEE International Conference on Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems (https://icps2018.net/) was held on 15-18 May in the premises of ITMO University in Saint-Petersburg. There were numerous topics, the main topics were Cyber-Physical Systems, Internet of Things and Industry 4.0.

Stefan Wilker presented the work “eNDUSTRIE 4.0 – A Future Technologies Qualification Network for Local Businesses” in the Education and Social Aspects Track. It describes the methodology and the results that were collected in a qualification network with company partners from all over Austria on the subject of Industry 4.0.

The organizers have put together a great program:

An industry forum provided a platform for national and international companies to share their experience and projects in cyber-phyical systems.

In addition, two half-day excursions were offered, which offered insights into the activities of Diakont and Thermex Corporation.

Numerous Russian delicacies were served, which also enabled time-restricted participants of the compact program to get something good out of Russia.

The university was involved with a play specially rehearsed in English, which celebrated its premiere there.

An estimated 150 participants won the conference. A good start to a new conference series!

In contrary to all fears, I managed to get along well with English Saint-Petersburg. If there was a communication problem, bystanders were called to translate, for example, to answer questions or show the way.

We look forward to continuing this conference series!
