Call for Papers
The development of Internet-related technologies has affected all the levels of
automation pyramid. In addition to enhancing the connectivity, new web
standards were proposed by different standardization bodies (e.g. W3C,
OASIS) defining new approaches to the modeling and processing of
information. Their application for manufacturing domain requires
improvements at all the levels from factory floor to Enterprise Resource
Planning. Open, Knowledge-Driven Manufacturing Execution Systems are
seen as a core to allow adaptation of web standards for manufacturing. It
must join together enhanced information representation and processing
capabilities with performance requirements of controlled manufacturing
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 Knowledge-driven runtime re-configurability of manufacturing systems;
A good quality paper may be considered for publication in IEEE Transactions on Industrial
Informatics (I.F.=8.785) subjects to further reviews
 MES functions and their realization using knowledge-driven
 Knowledge modelling at all levels of automation pyramid;
 Domain ontologies for manufacturing systems representation;
 Joining deterministic controller behaviour (e.g. PLCs) and knowledge
 Distributed reasoning allowing the use of computational resources at
embedded controllers;
 Application of Service-oriented Architectures for Manufacturing
Execution Systems;
 Semantic web services for manufacturing systems integration.
Submission procedure, deadlines, and author instructions:
