Dear Colleagues,


We are proud to announce IEEE/NSF Workshop on Cloud Manufacturing and
Automation: http://www.case2013.org/WorkshopTutorials/CMA.html

It will be in Assembly Room from 8:30am to 5:00pm on August 17 at IEEE
Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE) Madison, Wisconsin.


The program of the workshop can be found at



We are excited to gather an exciting set of talks and would like to extend
our invitation anyone who share common interests to participate our
workshop. This one-day IEEE/NSF workshop will explore the potential for
Cloud Computing to dramatically improve manufacturing and automation. Cloud
Computing and related topics such as G.E.'s Industrial Internet, Germany's
Industry 4.0, and the Internet of Things have the potential to remove
current computation and memory limitations of robotic and automation systems
and vastly increase availability of real-time data. Cloud Computing can also
provide rapid access to computing power, crowd sourcing, and open-source
software. Many new research problems arise, such as architecture, security,
performance/speed tradeoffs, standards, uncertainty, reliability, planning
and scheduling. This workshop will provide a forum to present new
developments and explore future topics and jointly prepare a report on this
emerging topic.


Best regards,
