Recent Advances of Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality Systems

Now comes to the fore concept extended reality (XR), which includes the technology of virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality, is beginning to become more widely known. In recent years, XR has made remarkable progress, and usage expectations are very high. There is no doubt about the potential of this technology.

The purpose of this Special Session is to bring together state-of-the-art achievements on extended reality and its applications. We encourage authors to submit original research articles, case studies, reviews, theoretical and critical perspectives, and viewpoint articles.

In the manufacturing field, the use of augmented reality has been the topic of conversation for years, but actual deployment has been slow. This is changing, however, as manufacturers explore the technology in their plants and move beyond pilots and trials to the wider, day-to-day use of AR. Although AR is still at an early stage in manufacturing, there is a lot of innovation going on, and a lot of movement in the industry around AR. On the other hand, XR provides great opportunities in education and training that are not possible with traditional instruction methods and other technologies used in education.

List of Topics: Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality, New interaction design for AR/MR/VR, AR/MR/VR applications: manufacturing, healthcare, virtual travel, e-sports, games, cultural heritage, military, e-commerce, military, psychology, medicine, emergency response, entertainment, engineering, advertising, etc, AR/MR/VR technologies and experimentation, AR/MR/VR for the Smart Factories of the Future, Education with AR/MR/VR, Social aspects in AR/MR/VR interaction, Interfaces for VR/AR

Resilience of logistics systems in traditional and smart factories

Enterprises and supply chains are increasingly operating in an environment or reality that four concepts can define: (1) variable or volatile indicates that changes are often chaotic and unpredictable, which in turn affects the volatility and obsolescence of long-term plans; (2) uncertain means that under conditions of uncertainty, a low level of understanding of events and problems that arise does not take into account inferences from the past and experience; (3) complex determines that the influence of various external factors (in terms of number and nature) causes difficulties in identifying the cause-effect chain of actions taken and emerging problems; (4) ambiguous indicates that business challenges also concern unclear situations, incorrectly read signals from the environment, ambiguity, and lack of experience in a similar problem – VUCA reality. Due to this reality, enterprises in supply chains stopped focusing only on the effectiveness of implemented processes but, most of all concentrated on building their resilience. The resistance of logistics systems to disruptions is also significant in developing the Industry 4.0 concept. However, it is worth noting that in the case of smart factories, the scope of the assessed risk is entirely different from the analyses performed for the needs of traditional production systems. The change of the human role in modern logistics systems forces a different approach to analyze potential threats and modifies the approach to safety management in the implemented service processes. Therefore, we invite representatives of technical and economic environments to participate in our session who want to share their research on the current challenges related to the functioning of supply chains in VUCA reality.

List of Topics:

  1. Designing resilient supply chains
  2. Designing logistics systems for a smart factory
  3. Risk management in logistics systems
  4. Safety of logistics systems
  5. New trends in resilience management of supply chains
  6. Risks related to VUCA reality.
  7. Logistics 4.0 systems and challenges related to their functioning
  8. Autonomous logistic support systems and their maintenance and operation

Challenges in the management of supply chains – practical perspective

The current pace of changes taking place in the economy requires managers to constantly improve techniques and tools used in the activities of enterprises, and in the world of science, to constantly verify existing ideas, concepts, and paradigms – especially in the field of management. Managerial knowledge is an extremely valuable resource, without which it is difficult to create efficient and effective solutions that contribute to the growth of competitiveness. It is especially visible in the activities of economic entities forming supply chains. The challenges faced by modern supply chains result primarily from the changes that take place in turbulent environment. The pressure of globalization results in the necessity to deal with the conditions resulting from the influence of international factors. These factors make it necessary to extend the analysis of determinants to include factors created on a transnational scale. They also make it necessary to look at internal systems of functioning, especially in the sphere of cooperation. The primacy of knowledge and technology, common nowadays, is a challenge, the effect of which is the development of systems based on the transformation of information into knowledge and appropriate methods of its application. A particular challenge resulting from the transformations in the contemporary world is the need to study the current paradigms and make appropriate changes. The purpose of the special session will be to exchange experiences and discuss the challenges arising from the ever-changing environment of the supply chain, focused on the creation, transfer and use of knowledge and new technologies, and the growth of internationalization as an indispensable component of its management.

Ubiquitous digitization from manufacturing organization perspective

Digitalisation is present more and more in modern industry. It supports manufacturing processes planning, realization, monitoring and reporting as well as support decision making process. Many advantages that digitalisation bring can be identified. In the same time many challenges for companies appear. Digitalisation influences on various aspects concerning manufacturing areas and company operations as well as people working in the company. Never before changes were implemented so fast as currently, what require open mind and fast adaptation of employees. It is interesting to research how digitalisation influence sustainability of manufacturing companies, namely the financial aspect, work environment as well as natural environment. Digitalisation influence economic aspects because to develop and implement new solutions the companies must invest in technologies so they should bring financial benefits. New technologies can influence social aspects by creating new work positions or by eliminating old professions so the structure of employment changes towards engaging more and more specialist and eliminating simple workers by implementing automats. The new technologies might also support workers in performing their job or they might require new or improved knowledge and skills. Moreover, new solutions might influence positively environmental aspects what can be noticed by companies and what might additionally influence positively on financial aspects, by decreasing for example costs of energy use. Although, from one side digitalization implemented together with all the sensors needed to collect automatically data and supported equipment, consume additional energy, from other side can be used to monitor and support management of energy consumption.
The Special Session addresses the many issues connected with digitalisation that might support manufacturing companies, manufacturing lines or even single workstations and employees.
The aim of the Special Session is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on design and application of modern technologies that can be applied to support sustainable development with identification of benefits which these technologies can bring in all areas of sustainability: economic, social and environmental.

Operation and maintenance of supply logistic systems in context of industry 4.0, circular economy, energy savings and CO2 emissions reduction

The Covid pandemic, the energy crisis caused by the war in Europe, the rise in commodity prices and inflation mean that the reliability of supplies of raw materials and components is diminished due to broken supply chains, and significant increase of transport costs. Uncertainty of supply affects the expansion of warehouses and an increase in care for transport devices. The importance of monitoring and diagnosing transport systems is growing in order to be able to make predictive replacements of components based on their diagnosed condition well in advance before failure. Collecting large amounts of data from sensors makes it easier to track transport processes and the operation of devices and components, but requires intelligent analysis of big data and intelligent drawing conclusions about changes in their state. To process of huge amounts of data, artificial intelligence is needed to classify failures and predict future condition so that monitoring and diagnostic data can be used effectively.

Optimization of supply chains, from the extraction of raw materials to the delivery of products to the final recipient, should take into account the cooperation of cyclical and continuous systems, construction of intermediate tanks and warehouses, analysis of the flow of transported masses and volumes, tracking changes in the quality of mixing material streams in order to achieve an optimal mix, construction of simulation models in to dimension devices, test transport capabilities and their reliability, conduct repairs and predict replacement times, create a digital twin of the logistics system to control its operation on an ongoing basis and predict the quality of the stream reaching the recipient, who can thus optimize their own production processes based on knowledge gathered during digital representation of real systems analyzing and testing.

Energy savings obtained from the increase of share of electric machines in the machinery serving the entire supply chain are associated with a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

List of Topics:

  • artificial intelligence. smart mines and mining innovations
  • time, materials and energy savings and management
  • circular economy
  • mining in oceans and space
  • water mining
  • automation and simulation
  • supply chain, quality tracking and  blockchain

Wrocław – European Capital of Culture 2016

As the largest city of Lower Silesia, Wrocław is the region’s administrative, economic and cultural capital. Standing on twelve islands on the Oder river and its four tributaries, it is often called the Venice of the North. It is a city with a thousand years of history: it passed from the hands of Czech kings under the rule of Austria, and then Prussia; finally, after the Second World War, it became a part of Poland. Today, the heritage of the past intertwines with modernity. As a city open to new ideas and challenges, Wrocław has gained a reputation as dynamic and innovative. It boasts a broad cultural and entertainment offer, and it is considered to be one of the most business-friendly cities to boot. Its atmosphere attracts people from all around the country and the world. It is the visitors who say Wrocław is the place that must be seen first and foremost when coming to Poland.

Welcome to Wrocław!

Tourist attractions

Wrocław’s monuments can be admired in a variety of ways: while taking an individual walk or a guided tour, or while travelling by an electric car, a bike, a historic tram or a cab. It is also worthwhile seeing the city view from a boat on the Oder river or from one of the observation towers. Apart from exploring Wrocław’s history, we invite you to search for its smallest citizens.

Dwarfs are Wrocław’s pride: the citizens have already set up more than 300 dwarf statuettes. They have blended in so well with the cityscape that few question their origin or number anymore. Additional information on dwarfs can be found on the dedicated website: www.krasnale.pl/en/.

Ostrów Tumski (Cathedral Island) is the oldest part of Wrocław. Surrounded by the waters of the Oder, the former stronghold which gave rise to the city comprises beautiful architectural monuments. The most impressive among them are the Gothic St. John the Baptist’s Cathedral and the Holy Cross Church, restored after the Second World War. The Archdiocesan Museum’s collection includes the Book of Henryków, a unique document containing the first sentence written in Polish, inscribed in 2015 on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

The Market Square is the heart of Wrocław, an entertainment centre full of pubs and restaurants, throbbing with life at any time of day or night. The centre of the square is built up with the Cloth Hall and the City Hall, a unique monument of Gothic and Renaissance architecture, one of a kind in the whole of Europe. It also houses the oldest restaurant in Europe: Piwnica Świdnicka. In front of the City Hall’s eastern façade, there is a pillory, and in front of the western one, a monument to the playwright Aleksander Fredro brought from Lviv. The market square is bordered by historic burgher tenements, banks and department stores.

Ulica Świdnicka is the most renowned promenade and historic shopping street in Wrocław. It is here that we can see the neo-classical building of the Wrocław Opera House and the nearby Wrocław Puppet Theatre. The street also leads to popular entertainment spots: the Musical Theatre ‘Capitol’, Dolnośląskie Centrum Filmowe (Lower Silesia Film Centre) and pubs along ulica Bogusławskiego. Another attraction worth seeing is an unconventional Monument of an Anonymous Passerby at the intersection of ulica Świdnicka and ulica Piłsudskiego. It is also here that the showpiece of the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016 has been located: the information point Barbara at the site of a former famous Wrocław bar.

The National Forum of Music is the newest concert hall building in the very centre of Wrocław. The modern building, with acoustics equal to the best in the world, houses four halls: the main hall with a capacity of 1800 and three chamber halls with 800 places in total. NFM has already had many renowned artists among its guests, and concert tickets sell out very quickly.

The Royal Palace with a baroque garden is the seat of the modern Historical Museum. Visitors can discover the city’s history by seeing the exhibition “1000 years of Wrocław”, as well as explore the royal apartments.

Connecting ulica Kiełbaśnicza and ulica Odrzańska, there is a small street paved with fieldstone: Jatki (butchers’ stalls), where poultry and meat from the municipal slaughterhouse were sold since the 12th century. Nowadays, it houses the city’s artists’ ateliers, painting and weaving galleries. A reminder of Jatki’s old function is an unusual Monument of the Butchery Animals.

The District of Four Denominations is a unique place, encompassing the area of ulica Kazimierza Wielkiego, ulica św. Antoniego, ulica Pawła Włodkowica and ulica św. Mikołaja. Its name refers to the fact that there are four temples of different denominations in close proximity to each other: an Orthodox church, a Roman Catholic church, a Protestant church and a synagogue. The area is especially lively in the evenings, as local discos, cafés and pubs attract crowds of people.

The University of Wrocław is situated in the largest baroque complex of the city, formed by the former Jesuit academy and church. It is the oldest alma mater in Wrocław.

The Mathematical Tower houses an old astronomical observatory.

Nearby, in a baroque building of a former cloister, the National Ossoliński Institute has had its seat since 1946. The centrepieces of its collection include the manuscript of the Polish national epic “Pan Tadeusz” by Adam Mickiewicz, engravings by Artur Grottger and Rembrandt, a denarius of Mieszko I (the first historical Polish ruler), a seal of king John I Albert and medals of the last Jagiellonians.

The former artisanal district, Nadodrze, has been changing in recent years. Tourists come here attracted by restored façades, renovated courtyards, parks and greens, murals, and in particular by the unique atmosphere of cafés, galleries, artist ateliers, author’s boutiques and other places which offer workshops, discussions, film showings and meetings with interesting people.

The Panorama of Racławice is a unique depiction of the Battle of Racławice. 15 metres tall and 114 metres long, the painting by Jan Styka and Wojciech Kossak is housed in a specially constructed rotunda. The ticket to the Panorama of Racławice also grants admission to the permanent exhibitions in the National Museum.

The Botanical Garden was founded in 1811. Its plants, of which there are more than 11,500 species and varieties, come from natural habitats and botanical gardens from all around the world. On the garden’s premises, there is the oldest and the largest Museum of Natural History in Poland.

Szczytnicki Park is the oldest and one of the largest parks in the city. Its main attraction is the Japanese Garden, created in 1913. Szczytnicki Park with its arboretum, beautiful rhododendron groves, a rose garden and the Japanese Garden has been entered in the register of art monuments.

The Centennial Hall (Hala Stulecia) is one of the most significant works of 20th century architecture. It was designed by the eminent architect Max Berg and constructed in 1913. The early modernistic domelike edifice of reinforced concrete has a vault with a diameter 1.5 times greater than the Roman Pantheon with only 42% of its weight. It has been extended with a congress centre and hosts both regional and international congresses as well as trade, sports and cultural events. In 2006, it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Its history can be explored in the Discovery Centre. Other attractions worth seeing include the Four Domes Pavilion and the Plastic Panorama of Old Lviv.

A multimedia fountain is just next to the Hall. With a surface of 1 ha, it is one of the largest fountains in Europe. Its basin contains 300 water nozzles of different types, able to spurt water up to 40 metres, and 3 fire nozzles. There are also 800 light points on the basin’s bottom. All of these elements contribute to free multimedia shows to the rhythm of music, accompanied by projections and laser lights. The shows’ programme can be found on the website www.wroclawskafontanna.pl. In winter the fountain turns into a skating rink.

The Wrocław Zoological Garden is the oldest and the largest (in terms of species variety) zoological garden in Poland. On its premises, there are a couple of historic buildings from the 19th century, such as the bears’ tower, the elephants’ pavilion and the apes’ pavilion. The newest attractions include the Africarium: a unique complex, with few equals in the world, presenting the aquatic environment of Africa.

The Wrocław Partynice Racecourse was opened in 1907. Nowadays, it hosts the most important horse races, such as Oaks: a race of three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. The event is even more splendid thanks to ladies in fancy hats.

The Wrocław Stadium, built for the EURO 2012 European football championships, is the most modern multi-purpose structure in Lower Silesia. It has a distinctive lantern shape and can seat 42,771 spectators. It hosts various sports and artistic events.

The Oder river, its tributaries and channels make Wrocław a unique city of 12 islands. The riverbanks and islands are joined by more than 100 bridges and footbridges. One of the oldest ones is the Piaskowy bridge, mentioned in 12th-century documents. The most famous one, however, is the Grunwaldzki bridge, formerly called the Emperor’s bridge, owing its popularity to the original suspended structure and unique location. In 2004, the Millennium Bridge was built, while in 2011, the Rędziński bridge, which is the longest single-pylon cable-supported bridge in Poland and the largest, in terms of surface, bridge of reinforced concrete in the world. Other unique bridges include the Tumski bridge, also known as the lovers’ bridge, and mostek Pokutnic (the bridge of Penitents), the highest situated bridge in Wrocław.
