The Internet of Everything (IoE) model presents at its core the promise to aggregate the "four pillars" of people, data, processes and things, in order to extend and improve the processes already present in classical models and, in turn, to enrich the lives of people. One of the most intriguing challenges in IoE is the paradigm "connections among things" shifting to "connections among people, process, data and things". At the same time, in a similar manner, the concept of Industry 5.0 makes its way in the nowadays industrial ecosystem. A peculiar necessity in Industry 5.0 is to increase productivity while not removing human workers from the manufacturing processes. This can be tackled by defining and evaluating hybrid ecosystems in which smart machines are intertwined with humans as collaborators rather than competitors.
HIEMI 2022 aims at bringing together scientific and industrial communities on discussing, proposing, defining and evaluating innovative and hybrid models for IoE in Industry 5.0 ecosystems. Considering the novelty of the context, the workshop also aims at defining a collaborative research agenda to highlight future research directions.
The workshop focuses on a rapidly advancing context that is attracting a considerable attention both from academic and industrial communities. For instance, according to Semantic Scholar, since 2020 more than 1,700 scientific contributes have been published regarding IoE and relating concepts, such as 6G networks, healthcare systems and edge- and fog-based architectures. Larger mentions are present for Industry 5.0, with more than 250,000 contributes mentioning it. Instantiating a novel workshop on such contexts encourages researchers and practitioners to share new ideas and developments, in order to tackle well known challenges and to pose new ones.
The workshop will be held in the first morning session, in the time slot 10:30-11:45. The authors are suggested to prepare 15 minutes long presentations, taking into account also possible questions from the audience. The schedule of the workshop is the following:
Program agenda of the main conference is available here.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Authors are invited to submit either full papers, possibly already submitted to other conferences or journals, and short papers, which are suggested for presenting work in progress, extended abstracts, software prototypes, or general overviews of research projects. Workshop submissions must be in PDF format, written in English and formatted according to the IEEE CS Proceedings format.
Full papers should not exceed 6 pages (including bibliography). Shorter papers must not exceed 4 pages.
All accepted original contributions will be published in the official IEEE CyberSciTech proceeding, which will be published by IEEE CPS (Scopus indexed, EI indexed, in IEEE DL). Non-original communications will be given visibility on the workshop website, including a link to the original publication, if already published.
Submissions can be made via the IEEE CyberSciTech conference page on EasyChair. Please select the track "DASC / International Workshop on Hybrid Internet of Everything Models for Industry 5.0)".
The Venue of the Conference is the wonderful Tyrrhenian Coast of Calabria, the most sunny region of the Italian Peninsula in the South Italy, also known as the “Toe of the Boot”. In particular, the Conference venue will be at Hotel Village “Eurolido” on the Tyrrhenian Sea. The venue is very near (< 20Km) the International Airport of Lamezia Terme and the “Lamezia Centrale” train station. For international travellers the best hub to change the flight for Lamezia Terme is usually Rome Fiumicino. The “Lamezia Centrale” train station is well connected to “Rome Termini” train station (multiple daily trains). Travelling by car, the Hotel Village “Eurolido” is a few hundred meters away the freeway exit; the trip can be easily planned on Google Maps.
More information are available on the webpage of the main conference.
At least one author of an accepted paper should register to the main conference. All the information for the registration are provided in this link.
