CfP: Self-X and Autonomous Control in Mechatronics and Production

******************************************************************************** INDIN 2010 - Special Session
8th IEEE International Conference on Industrial Informatics
Call for Papers Self-X and Autonomous Control in Mechatronics and Production (July 13-16, 2010, Osaka, Japan) Submission Deadline January 15, 2010 *********************************************************************************
We apologize for cross postings!
The increasing of adoption of methods from computational intelligence, biologically inspired computing,and optimization in engineering discipline such as mechatronics or production enables the development of a new class of autonomous systems. These systems often posses 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 area of mechatronic systems and production systems.
