This Workshop on Service Orientation in Holonic and Multi-Agent Manufacturing, took place on the 19th and 20th October in Nantes. The main objective of the SOHOMA’17 Workshop is to foster innovation in smart and sustainable manufacturing and logistics systems and in this context to promote concepts, methods and solutions addressing trends in service orientation of agent-based control technologies with distributed intelligence.
The theme of the SOHOMA’17 Workshop is “Emerging ICT for intelligent and sustainable manufacturing and logistics systems”. It is organized by the LS2N – University of Nantes in collaboration with other Universities. SOHOMA has the scientific support from GdR-MACS and the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society Technical Committee on Industrial Agents.
This 7th edition of the SOHOMA workshop was focused on these challenges and solutions. It examined the way emerging “bottom-up” behaviours were integrated with “top-down” approaches in an efficient and effective way to constitute hybrid control systems useful to meet industrial needs. It also fostered innovation in sustainable manufacturing and promote concepts, methods, solutions addressing trends in the service orientation of agent-based control technologies with distributed intelligence and the integration with enterprise management.
Dr Guy CAVEROT, Director of Innovation an Robotics at BA Systemes, gave a keynote to a pool of robotics researchers and scientific. His speech had lasted one hour during which he described widely the European project COROMA
