Call For Papers

2nd Special Session on "Self-X and Autonomous Control in Engineering Applications"
on the
9th IEEE International Conference on Industrial Informatics
July 26-29 2011

Accepted papers will be published in and IEEE proceedings volume and included in IEEE Explore

The increasing adoption of methods from computational intelligence, biologically inspired computing, and optimization in engineering
disciplines such as mechatronics or production enables the development of a new class of autonomous systems. These systems often
possess abilities which are best describe by the phrase Self-X: Self-Optimization, Self-Coordination, Self-Healing, Self-Repair
and many more.

These properties have in common that they shift decision making from humans to the technical systems. This shift has two possible
benefits. First, decision made during the design of the system can be delayed until operation and thus the system is able to react more
flexible to different application requirements. Second, the human effort in managing such systems can be reduced and the corresponding
systems are more cost-efficient. This special session is dedicated to this new type of systems in the various engineering applications.

The special Session addresses the following topics:

------------Application Examples of Self-X and Autonomous Control------------
* Mechatronics and Robotics
* Cyber Physical System
* Vehicle Technology
* Production Systems and Supply Chain Management
* and related applications

------------------Algorihtms and Methods for Self-X and Autonomous Control------------
* Autonomous Planning and Scheduling
* Agent-Based Systems, Multiagent-Systems, Holonic Control Systems
* Modelling Uncertainty, Optimization and Planning under Uncertainty
* Multi-Objective Optimization and Mulit-Criteria Optimization
* Machine Learning and Data Mining
* Model Identification and Fuzzy Expert Systems
* Biologically inspired Methods: Ant-Based Optimization, Artificial Immune Systems, Evolutionary Computing, etc.
* and related methods

------------------Platform Technologies for Self-X and Autononmous Control------------
* Reconfigurable Hardware
* Systen Software for Self-x and Autonomous Control
* Distributed Control
* Flexible Resource Management in Embedded Systems
* Self-Healing Embedded Systems
* Wireless Sensor Networks
* and related technologies

------------------Design Methodologies for Self-X and Autonomous Control------------
* Reference Process for Design and Development of Systems with Self-X Properties and Autonomous Control
* Formal Verification
* System Validation
* Evaluation methods for Self-X and Autonomous Control
* Solution Patterns for Self-X and Autonomous Control
