The workshop

At the heart of the Internet of Everything (IoE) model is the promise to bring together people, data, processes, and things, with the goal of improving existing processes and enhancing people's lives. A crucial challenge in IoE is the shift from the "connections among things" paradigm to "connections among people, processes, data, and things”. Similarly, the concept of Industry 5.0 is gaining traction in the industrial ecosystem, with a need to increase productivity while keeping human workers involved in manufacturing processes. The solution is to create hybrid ecosystems that seamlessly integrate smart machines with humans as collaborators.

Goals and motivations

HIEMI 2023 aims to create a platform for the scientific and industrial communities to explore and evaluate innovative and hybrid models for IoE in Industry 5.0 ecosystems. The workshop aims to define a collaborative research agenda to highlight future research directions in this rapidly advancing field, and to provide a timely opportunity to share new ideas and developments that tackle well-known challenges and pose new ones. As the intersection of Industry 5.0 and IoE gains more attention from academic and industrial communities, HIEMI 2023 provides a platform to share knowledge, foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and develop innovative solutions that can improve industrial ecosystems. The workshop is a unique opportunity to explore the potential of hybrid models that can integrate smart machines with humans as collaborators, enabling the creation of innovative ecosystems that can adapt to changing market demands.
