The 27th EG-ICE International Workshop will bring together in Berlin, Germany international experts working on the interface between advanced computing and modern engineering challenges. Many engineering tasks require open-world resolution of challenges such as supporting multi-actor collaboration, coping with approximate models, providing effective engineer-computer interaction, search in multi-dimensional solution spaces, accommodating uncertainty, including specialist domain knowledge, performing sensor-data interpretation and dealing with incomplete knowledge. While results from computer science provide much initial support for resolution, adaptation is unavoidable and most importantly, feedback from addressing engineering challenges drives fundamental computer-science research. Competence and knowledge transfer goes both ways.
The workshop is intended to be a small-scale and single-track event focusing on defining strategic aspects of the interaction of computing with engineering challenges. Also, current proposals for supporting engineering challenges according to these aspects will be evaluated and compared. As in previous workshops, the promotion, dissemination and exchange of knowledge and ideas will be supported through long discussion periods within each session.
The European Group for Intelligent Computing in Engineering (EG-ICE) was established in 1993 to promote research on the interface between computing and engineering challenges. The primary goals of the group are to promote engineering informatics research across Europe by encouraging and improving contacts between researchers, fostering research collaboration and enhancing awareness of the latest developments. The group maintains active contact with similar groups in countries outside Europe and encourages membership by non-Europeans. Moreover, the group has a further aim to increase the awareness of industry of advanced engineering informatics.
