ICT with Industry 2017 (in cooperation with NWO)

The ICT with Industry workshop brings together scientists, in particular (junior) research staff and PhD’s, and professionals from industry and governments. The workshop revolves around a number of case studies, which are subject to an intense week of analyzing, discussing, and modeling solutions. The ICT with Industry is a series of events performed yearly since 2013 ( overviews of the past two editions can be found here and here).

Workshop objectives

  1. To stimulate synergies between ICT research and industrial R&D, by analyzing challenging problems in multidisciplinary teams.
  2. To obtain creative solutions for problems from practice.
  3. To give insight into the possibilities ICT research offers, and thereby enable accelerated innovation.
  4. To enrich the PhD students' and postdocs' experience in collaborating with industry.

During five days some fifty researchers from information technology and computer science from a wide range of universities within the Netherlands and Europe will work work together extensively on challenging problems proposed by our industry partners.

Are you a PhD student or a Postdoc and interested in this week-long challenge? Apart from a challenging task, you will also be able to network, discuss your ideas and create collaborations.

This year, we have four case studies:

  • Triodos Bank: An eco-system for a multi-company blockchain with an alternative currency
  • Blendle: Personalized news selection
  • TNO-ESI and Océ: Architecting support using system architecture knowledge graphs and expert systems
  • ICT for Brain, Body & Behavior: Machine learning for industrial inspection
