I-ESA: Smarter Interoperability with Federation and Artificial Intelligence (SIFAI) workshop

18 Dec 2019

Dear colleagues, 

I'm  supporting Prof. Marten van Sinderen (U.Twente) to organize this workshop in I-ESA, a relevant conference in interoperability research. 

Submissions from the group are welcome.

Apologies for cross-posting.

Best regards,



International workshop on Smarter Interoperability with Federation and Artificial Intelligence (SIFAI)
         In conjunction with I-ESA 2020 (https://iesa2020.enit.fr/
                   23-27 March 2020, Tarbes, France

This I-ESA workshop has as objective to address interoperability challenges of digital ecosystems, specifically:
-	how federated approaches to interoperability can provide practical trade-offs between autonomy, control over data, flexibility, performance, and sharing of data;
-	how artificial intelligence (e.g., machine learning and knowledge graphs) can make interoperability 'smarter', in the sense of automating decision-making towards achieving interoperability and reducing human effort and intervention.

The workshop solicits relatively short papers (4-6 pages), e.g., accommodating work-in-progress or position papers, with relevance to industry/practice. The workshop has a post-event proceedings published in a Wiley-ISTE book. The workshop will take place in Tarbes (France), within the I-ESA dates March 23-27, 2020 (exact date to be announced).

Topics of interest to the workshop include but are not limited to:
-	Enterprise interoperability
-	Digital ecosystems and systems-of-systems
-	Networked enterprise information systems
-	Industrial Data Space (IDS)
-	Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) principles
-	Industry 4.0 / Smart Industry
- 	Sustainable interoperability
-	Model-driven interoperability
-	Knowledge graphs and ontologies for semantic interoperability
-	Semantic matching and semantic unification
-	Dynamic interoperability
-	Cross-domain and trans-national interoperability
-	Self-explanatory models
-	AI-driven smart interoperability
-	Validation approaches for smart interoperability

Dates for paper submission:
-	Abstracts: January 15, 2020
-	Complete draft papers (to be presented at the workshop): February 14, 2020 
-	Final papers (for publication in the proceedings book): April 17, 2020
