LIDARI - 3rd Workshop on Linked Data in Robotics and Industry 4.0

11.9.2018, Vienna, Austria
Co-located with SEMANTiCS 2018 - The Linked Data Conference


Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the 3rd Workshop on
Linked Data in Robotics and Industry 4.0. The overall goal of the LIDARI
workshop is to identify challenges and limitations in Robotics and Industry
4.0 and discuss with experts from the linked data community how linked data
can be effectively applied addressing the synergies and solution approaches.
One of the aims in robotics is to build smarter robots that can communicate,
collaborate and operate more naturally and safely. Increasing a robot’s
knowledge and intelligence is a vital for the successful implementation of
Industry 4.0, since traditional approaches are not flexible enough to
respond to the rapidly changing demands of new production processes and
their growing complexity. Linked data represents a promising approach to
overcome limitations of the state-of the- art solutions. The following list
of topics is indicative, but other topics are also welcome: 

- Knowledge Representation for Robotics
- Data integration
- Motion and task planning
- Manipulation and grasping
- Object and place recognition
- Human-Robot and Robot-Robot Interaction
- Navigation
- Databases for robotics applications
- Multidisciplinary Topics

In addition, Industry 4.0 is a collective term (created in Germany) for the
technological concepts of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and
the Internet of Services, leading to the vision of the Smart Factory. Within
a modular structured Smart Factory, cyber-physical systems monitor physical
processes, and make decentralized decisions. Over the Internet of Things,
cyber-physical systems communicate and cooperate with each other and humans
in real time. As identified in both academia and industry, there are several
design principles in Industry 4.0, which support companies in identifying
and implementing Industry 4.0 scenarios:

- Interoperability: the ability of cyber-physical systems (i.e. workpiece
carriers or assembly stations) and humans to connect and communicate via the
Internet of Things
- Virtualization: linking sensor data (from monitoring physical processes)
with virtual plant models and simulation models
- Decentralization: the ability of cyber-physical systems within Smart
Factories to make decisions on their own
- Real-Time Capability: the capability to collect and analyze data and
provide the derived insights immediately
- Service Orientation: offering of services (cyber-physical systems, humans
or Smart Factories)
- Modularity: flexible adaptation of Smart Factories to changing
requirements by replacing or expanding individual modules

Submission Guidelines

The LIDARI workshops at SEMANTiCS 2018 welcomes the submission of papers on
scientific research and/or innovations relevant to the topics of the
workshop. Submissions must be original and must not have been submitted for
publication elsewhere. Papers should follow the latest ACM ICPS guidelines
for formatting (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.acm.org_sigs_publications_proceedings-2Dtemplates&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=qfjnpY8nQdCsxdplimM9pUQwiGRXjKf4dakCu-h8xu4&s=Q0-_z7-OG8LUCAKmxo_X3hJRaBFFVVRW5NBYOTY--Eg&e=)
and must not exceed 8 pages in length, including references and optional

Submissions will be reviewed by at least 2 PC members following a
double-blind review process. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in
preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the
notification of acceptance.
