Yannick Naudet
IT for Innovative Services (ITIS), Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology
Brief Bio
Yannick Naudet is scientific coordinator and lead researcher in the ITIS department of LIST, RDSA unit, HUMOD group, focusing on human modelling and knowledge engineering in cyber-physical and social systems. He holds a PhD in Computer Sciences, Automatic and Signal Processing, from the University of Reims Champagne Ardennes, France, obtained with highest honors in 2001, and the ADR from University of Luxembourg, Science and Engineering Doctoral School (2018). His main research topics concern the human digital twin and cyber-physical and social systems, context-aware adaptation and personalization, systems modeling and systems interoperability, especially focusing on approaches based on ontologies and semantic web technologies. Dr. Naudet has contributed to several European research projects of the H2020, FP7/FP6 and EUREKA European research programs. He has been involved in the INTEROP NoE (IST-FP6) and was as member of the scientific committee of the GIS INTEROP Grande Region, pole of the INTEROP V-LAB. He is currently co-leading AI4C2PS, a French-Luxembourgish project dealing with cognitive interoperability in Digital Twin -supported cyber-physical enterprise and coordinates research on Human Digital Twin across four international research projects including a PhD. He is the author of more than hundred scientific publications and has supervised several PhD students and Post-doctoral fellows in the domain of cyber-physical-social systems and personalization, enterprise interoperability, dynamic services composition optimization using genetic algorithms, ontology-based personalization, semantic web, ontology alignment and intelligent crowd-sourcing.

Dr. Hervé PANETTO is a Professor of Enterprise Information Systems at University of Lorraine, TELECOM Nancy. He teaches Information Systems modelling and development, and conducts research at CRAN (Research Centre for Automatic Control), Joint Research Unit with CNRS where he is managing a research project on the use of ontology for formalising models related to the interoperability of production systems, and mainly their enterprise information systems. He has been elected member of the Academia Europaea in 2018. He has been elected, in 2020, Chairman of the IFAC French National Member Organization (NMO). He received his PhD in production engineering in 1991. He has strong experience in information systems modelling, semantics modelling and discovery, and database development. His research field is based on information systems modelling for enterprise applications and processes interoperability, with applications in enterprise modelling, manufacturing processes modelling, furniture data modelling. He is working in ERP and MES integration from a Business to manufacturing perspective. He is expert at AFNOR (French National standardisation body), CEN TC310 and ISO TC184/SC4 and SC5. He participated in many European projects including IMS FP5-IST Smart-fm project (awarded by IMS) and the FP6 INTEROP NoE (Interoperability Research for Networked Enterprises Applications and Software). He is serving as expert-evaluator for the European Commission, FNR, AERES and ANR in the domain of ICT. He was visiting Professor in 2013-2015 in the frame of a Science Without Borders PVE project with PUC Parana, Brazil and full visiting Professor in 2016 at the UTFPR, Curitiba, Brazil. He is editor or guest editor of books and special issues of international journals. He is author or co-author of more than 150 papers in the field of Automation Engineering, Enterprise Modelling and Enterprise systems integration and interoperability. After being Chair of the IFAC Technical Committee 5.3 “Enterprise Integration and Networking” from 2008 to 2014. He is Chair of the IFAC Coordinating Committee 5 on “Manufacturing and Logistics Systems” since 2014. He received the IFAC France Award 2013, the INCOSE 2015 Outstanding Service Award and the IFAC 2017 Outstanding Service Award. He is co-organiser of the yearly OTM/IFAC/IFIP EI2N workshop on “Enterprise Integration, Interoperability and Networking”. He is General Co-chair of the OTM Federated conferences. He is member of the Editorial Board of the Annual Reviews in Control, Computers In Industry, the International Journal of Computer Integrated Manufacturing, the International Journal on Universal Computer Science, the scientific journal Facta Universitatis, series Mechanical Engineering, and an Associate Editor of the international Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing (JIM), Springer, the Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) journal, Taylor & Francis, the IEEE Internet of Things Journal, the Journal of Industrial Information Integration (JIII), Elsevier, and the Journal SN Computer Science (SNCS), Springer Nature.


In the context of the Factory of the Future, enterprises have to become S^3 (Enterprises: Smart, Sensing and Sustainable) Enterprises. These system-of-systems must adapt to be sustainable not only along the environmental but also economic dimensions. The sensed information must be support smart decisions. In this context, enterprise integration, interoperability and networking are major disciplines that study how enterprise system-of-systems collaborate, communicate, and coordinate in the most effective way. Enterprise Integration aims at improving synergy within the enterprise so that sustainability is achieved in a more productive and efficient way. Enterprise Interoperability and Networking aim at more adaptability within and across multiple collaborating enterprises.
