    2nd ECML/PKDD 2020 Workshop on

    IoT Streams for Data-Driven Predictive Maintenance

    ECML-PKDD 2020, September 14 –18, 2020, Ghent-Belgium


    Motivation and focus

    Maintenance is a critical issue in the industrial context for preventing high costs
    and injuries. Various industries are moving more and more toward digitalization and
    collecting “big data” to enable or improve the accuracy of their predictions. At the
    same time, the emerging technologies of Industry 4.0 empowered data production and
    exchange, which leads to new concepts and methodologies for the exploitation of large
    datasets in maintenance. The intensive research effort in data-driven Predictive
    Maintenance (PdM) is producing encouraging results. Therefore, the main objective
    of this workshop is to raise awareness of research trends and promote interdisciplinary
    discussion in this field.

    Data-driven predictive maintenance must deal with big streaming data and handle concept
    drift due to both changing external conditions, but also normal wear of the equipment.
    It requires combining multiple data sources, and the resulting datasets are often highly
    imbalanced. The knowledge about the systems is detailed, but in many scenarios, there is
    a large diversity in both model configurations, as well as their usage, additionally
    complicated by low data quality and high uncertainty in the labels. In particular, many
    recent advancements in supervised and unsupervised machine learning, representation
    learning, anomaly detection, visual analytics and similar areas can be showcased in this
    domain. Therefore, the overlap in research between machine learning and predictive
    maintenance continues to increase in recent years.

    This event is an opportunity to bridge researchers and engineers to discuss emerging
    topics and key trends. The previous edition of the workshop at ECML 2019 has been very
    popular, and we are planning to continue this success in 2020.

    Aim and scope

    This workshop welcomes research papers using Data Mining and Machine Learning (Artificial
    Intelligence in general) to address the challenges and answer questions related to the
    problem of predictive maintenance. For example, when to perform maintenance actions, how
    to estimate components current and future status, which data should be used, what decision
    support tools should be developed for prognostic, how to improve the estimation accuracy
    of remaining useful life, and similar. It solicits original work, already completed or in
    progress. Position papers will also be considered. The scope of the workshop covers, but
    is not limited to, the following:

    * Predictive and Prescriptive Maintenance

    * Fault Detection and Diagnosis (FDD)

    * Fault Isolation and Identification

    * Anomaly Detection (AD)

    * Estimation of Remaining Useful Life of Components, Machines, etc.

    * Forecasting of Product and Process Quality

    * Early Failure and Anomaly Detection and Analysis

    * Automatic Process Optimization

    * Self-healing and Self-correction

    * Incremental and evolving (data-driven and hybrid) models for FDD and AD

    * Self-adaptive time-series based models for prognostics and forecasting

    * Adaptive signal processing techniques for FDD and forecasting

    * Concept Drift issues in dynamic predictive maintenance systems

    * Active learning and Design of Experiment (DoE) in dynamic predictive maintenance

    * Industrial process monitoring and modelling

    * Maintenance scheduling and on-demand maintenance planning

    * Visual analytics and interactive Machine Learning

    * Analysis of usage patterns

    * Explainable AI for predictive maintenance

    * …

    It covers real-world applications such as:

    * Manufacturing systems

    * Transport systems (including roads, railways, aerospace and more)

    * Energy and power systems and networks (wind turbines, solar plants and more)

    * Smart management of energy demand/response

    * Production Processes and Factories of the Future (FoF)

    * Power generation and distribution systems

    * Intrusion detection and cybersecurity

    * Internet of Things

    * Smart cities

    * …

    Submission and Review process

    Regular and short papers presenting work completed or in progress are invited. Regular
    papers should not exceed 12 pages, while short papers are a maximum of 6 pages. Papers
    must be written in English and submitted in PDF format online via the Easychair
    submission interface https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iotstream2020.

    Each submission will be evaluated on the basis of relevance, the significance of
    contribution, quality of presentation and technical quality by at least two members of
    the program committee. All accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings
    and will be publically available on the conference web site. At least one author of
    each accepted paper is required to attend the workshop to present.

    Important dates

    Workshop paper submission deadline: 11th of June 2020

    Workshop paper acceptance notification: 20th of July 2020

    Workshop paper camera-ready deadline: 27th of July 2020

    Workshop Day: 14th of September 2020 (alternatively, 18th of September)
