Workshop W5

Intelligent Systems for Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 revealed an enormous creative potential. The vision is becoming reality. Being the fourth industrial revolution, it is commonly understood as the increasing and ultimate digitalization and integration of both industrial and everyday entities. Unlike the previous industrial revolutions, Industry 4.0 is not initialized by a single new technology but rather by interconnected technologies with intelligent services. The arising potential cannot be overestimated. However, to achieve the desired benefit further advances and, most notably, further integration of AI methods into the entities and services must be conducted. During this workshop we aim to bring together researchers who work at the gateway of both practical, entity-driven research and theoretical, AI-driven research.

We invite researchers from both the technological side of research who aim to implement methods from AI as well as researchers from the field of AI who aim to spread their research to the practical environment of Industry 4.0 to submit their work. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Call for Papers (PDF-Version)


All submissions will be peer-reviewed. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register for the workshop to present the work. Submitted papers must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS format. The length of each paper should nor exceed 8-12 pages. All papers must present original work, be written in English and submitted in PDF format. We plan on publishing the accepted papers via Paper submission will be electronic through the Int4Ind4 EasyChair website.

Workshop Format

The talks of the workshop will be selected based on the paper reviews. For now, the workshop will take place on September 26, 2017. Please consider the conference schedule which has not been fixed yet.


The workshop will be held at TU Dortmund University in the buildings of the faculty of computer sciences. Detailed instructions will be published in due time.
