Smart and Sustainable Collaborative Networks 4.0


22nd IFIP/SOCOLNET Working Conference on Virtual Enterprises

Combined with the current boom of applied Artificial Intelligence and learning, Collaborative Networks show high potentials to boost Industry 4.0. But digitalization also concerns many other activity sectors where agility, resilience, and sustainability are key challenges, e.g. the Health 4.0, Agriculture 4.0, Cities 4.0, Transportation 4.0, Logistics 4.0, Education 4.0, and even Tourism 4.0. With an eye on this diversity of application fields, PRO-VE 2021 will provide a forum for sharing experiences, discussing trends, and identifying new opportunities, thus introducing innovative solutions for the new generation of Smart and Sustainable Collaborative Networks 4.0.

PRO-VE’2021 put the emphasis on collaboration between industrials and academics, with a full day of Industrial Whorkshop integrated within the main program of the Conference.
