IECON 2012: Special Session on GRACE project

IECON is the flagship annual conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) and has been a leading international conference organized to present the latest advances in the applications of industrial electronics.

The coverage of IECON is very wide and this year’s IECON is no exception. 12 regular tracks covering power electronics, machines, drives, power system and renewable energy in one hand and control, signal processing, robotics, mechatronics, and industrial informatics on the other were scheduled. Three intensive verystimulating days were planned and filled with 10 tutorials, 2 highly reputed keynote speakers, 3 world renowned industrial luncheon speakers, an industry forum on sustainable development with experienced speakers, 65 special sessions, 172 technical oral sessions, 3 poster sessions, student gathering, a workshop, several discussion forums-panels and industrial exhibitors. It was a very stimulating and highly rich experience to see industrial leaders and exhibitors interacting with more than 1000 attendees to make this event very interesting and unique.

In this context, GRACE was present with three contributions presented in the Special Session dedicated to “Research and Development Projects on Industrial Agents” (Quality Control Agents for Adaptive Visual Inspection in Production Lines, presented by Eng. Lorenzo Stroppa; Grace Ontology Integrating Process and Quality Control,  presented by Prof. Paulo Leitão; Self-Adapting Test-Plans in Production Line: an Application to Vision Control Stations, presented by Dr. Cristina Cristalli). The presentations took place in front of an heterogeneous audience and were followed by stimulating debates.

Among the three GRACE contributions for IECON, the one discussed by Lorenzo Stroppa was awarded as the best oral presentation, proving the interest and the quality of the GRACE approach to the integration of process and quality control for production lines.

Furthermore, Prof. Paulo Leitao presented the Grace project in the Tutorial entitled “Towards industrial implementation of cyber-physical systems merging service-oriented and multi-agent system infrastructures“.
