9th International Conference on Safety of Industrial Automated Systems – SIAS 2018

October 10-12, 2018 - Nancy, France

Sias 2018

The emergence of new technologies (internet of objects, artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing, collaborative robotics, mobile robotics, additive manufacturing, augmented reality, etc.) has a profound impact on industry today. Industries of the future, geared towards improvement of performance, have led to increased use of these new technologies. What are the consequences on the safety of industrial automated systems?

The SIAS 2018 conference will provide the opportunity to present the most recent progress incorporating occupational risk prevention in the transformations related to the concept of “industries of the future” as regards engineering (design, simulation tools, risk analysis, prevention measures, etc.) and the importance of humans, who, more than ever, are at the centre of production systems.

Call for abstracts deadline: April 13, 2018

CARWH 2018: Research and Practice to Improve Health in a Changing World of Work

October 21-23, 2018 - Vancouver, British-Columbia

ACRSTWork and working arrangements have become more complex and there are new hazards and risks to worker health that are emerging. Meaningful, fairly compensated, and safe work is good for health. In today’s changing world of work, we are seeing an increase in health inequalities between advantaged and disadvantaged workers. To that end, an underlying theme of the conference is a focus on workers who are in vulnerable working situations and on those who come from historically disadvantaged and excluded populations such as aboriginal or indigenous workers.

Call for abstracts deadline: May 15, 2018
