IWIS Kyoto 2022




Development paradigms such as Industry 4.0 in Europe and Society 5.0 in Japan are getting importance and significant implications in industry and society worldwide. The IWIS2022 aims to put these concepts in focus with industry-academia collaborations for the improvement of society by means of technology and digitalization. Societal implications and energy and resource management are of increasing importance today, as climate change is one of the biggest challenges that the planet is facing; that is the main reason for Industry 4.0 being upgraded to the next level, Industry 5.0, to involve these variables already considered in the Japanese Society 5.0.  

In collaboration with the Graduate School of Engineering of Kyoto University and the School of Engineering Science of the University of Skövde, this workshop serves as a networking hub and forum for international researchers to discuss potential benefits, barriers, and key projects regarding Industry 5.0 and Society 5.0. The key aspects are the introduction and comparison of both paradigms and how to support them with the last research including topics such as smart manufacturing, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Human-Robot Collaboration, Simulation, Optimization, and the Functional Resonance Analysis Method.


The IWIS202 is co-organized with the FRAMily2022 on 15th - 17th November at The SODOH Higashiyama Kyoto. More information about the FRAMily 2022 can be found here:
