Scientists from 10 countries are to take part in the largest Russian Conference on Industry 4.0

On November 13-15, South Ural State University (Chelyabinsk) is to host a unique 2018 Global Smart Industry Conference. From the USA to China, internationally recognized scientists from over 10 countries have already confirmed their participation.

Presently, more than 400 applications have been submitted via website from those willing to share their experience and learn the latest digital industry news. The focus of the Conference is on the following digital industry areas: Big Data, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for Industry 4.0 Management; Human-machine Interaction in Industrial Systems; Security and Privacy Protection in Industrial Networks; Additive Manufacturing Technology; Cloud and High-performance Computing for Smart Factory; Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks; Sensors and Their Components; Virtual and Augmented Realities for Industry 4.0; Digital Twins Technology.

“The Conference will emphasize the necessity of both fundamental and applied research,” notes Vice-Rector for Informatization, D.Sc. (Physics and Mathematics), Prof. Leonid Sokolinsky. “The industry needs ideas that can easily be put into practice. Fundamental science should be oriented at implementation of important and useful tasks: this is a modern trend in the world science. Taking into account specificity of our region, as well as of our university which cooperates with the largest industrial corporations, we pay special attention to fundamental science. Without it, application of machine learning and artificial intelligence would become impossible for controlling production and solving many other important problems. Russia hasn’t seen a Conference on digital industry of such scope yet. This is an important event not only for Russian science, but for global science as well.”

The Conference will bring together the leading scientists from Russia, USA, China, Germany, Italy, India, Poland, and other countries. Moreover, the event will be featuring representatives of the largest industrial companies, including Emerson, SMS group, etc. Program Committee of the Conference includes representatives of the leading foreign companies and universities: Manus Patrick Henry (University of Oxford, United Kingdom), Philippe Bertrand (National Engineering School of Saint-Etienne, France), Pino Teze (Vice President of Technical Services Division of the SMS Group Holding Company), and others.

“Today, a big number of Ural enterprises push on to a new level of industry by actively introducing the technology of Industry 4.0,” emphasizes Director of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Candidate of Sciences (Physics and Mathematics), Associate Professor Gleb Radchenko. “SUSU is the organizer of the Scientific Conference, and the initiative to hold this Conference was supported by Emerson Corporation, which is well-known all over the world for its high-tech inventions. Our university, in turn, is acting as a platform that brings together research resources, supercomputer computational systems and unique laboratory equipment which allows solving really difficult problems. This union becomes a good ‘catalyst’ for determining new directions towards Industry 4.0, as well as the opportunity for exchange of experience between the leading inventors of Russia and the world.”

Research projects of world-level specialists in the sphere of digital industry are to be presented at the Conference. The program includes the following reports: “Additive manufacturing in Industry 4.0” (Philippe Bertrand, Professor at the National Engineering School of Saint-Etienne); “IoE (Internet of Everything) security under conditions of unknown risks” (Andrei Tchernykh, Professor at the CICESE Research Center, Mexico); “From Digital Twin to Digital Twin Shop-Floor” (Tao Fei, Professor at the School of Automation Science and Electrical Engineering, Beihang University, China) and many others.

If you wish to take part in the Conference, please fill in the registration form until November 1 and pay a registration fee.
