The aim of the 8th annual Industrial Simulation Conference (ISC'2010), is to give a complete overview of this year's industrial simulation related research and to provide an annual status report on present day industrial simulation research within the European Community and the rest of the world in line with European industrial research projects.

With the integration of artificial intelligence, agents and other modelling techniques, simulation has become an effective and appropriate decision support tool in industry. The exchange of techniques and ideas among universities and industry, which support the integration of simulation in the everyday workplace, is the basic premise at the heart of ISC'2010 conference. The ISC'2010 conference consists of four major parts; the first part concerns itself with discrete event simulation methodology, the second and biggest part with industrial simulation applications, a third one with industrial themed workshops, and last but not least the fourth part, namely the poster sessions for students. The whole is then illustrated by an exhibition.

From this year onwards ISC will focus more on simulation applications for the factory of the future (e.g. transformable factories, networked factories, learning factories, digital factories) depending on different drivers such as high performance, high customisation, environmental friendliness, high efficiency of resources, human potential and knowledge creation as set out by the EU.

Ambient Intelligence is an emerging research area that has received much attention in recent years, concerned with the implications of embedding computing devices into the environment, and how human and artificial agents can interact in such technological contexts. The infrastructure for ambient intelligence is coming on line, Computational resources are becoming cheaper, while ubiquitous network access has started to appear.
Different devices equipped with simple intelligence and the abilities to sense, communicate and act, will be unremarkable features of our world. Therefore, one takes the view that ambient intelligence is imminent and inevitable and it may be of great interest in simulation scenarios.

Semiconductor Manufacturing Simulation
Recently, the electronics industry has become the largest industry in the world. One important area of this industry is the manufacturing of integrated circuits (IC) on silicon wafers. Semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities (wafer fabs) are complex manufacturing systems that contain hundreds of machines and thousands of lots. Currently, it seems that the improvement of operational processes creates the best opportunity to realize necessary cost reductions. Therefore, the development of efficient planning and control strategies is highly desirable in the semiconductor domain.
In order to create, implement and test the required novel strategies, it is necessary to take new opportunities of information technology into account. Modelling and Simulation are widely accepted tools in planning and production control in wafer fabs because they are able to deal with the huge complexity of modern wafer fabs.

Virtual Reality and Graphical Simulations in Industrial Applications
Virtual reality and computer graphics simulations applied to industrial applications in production processes and on the factory floor in the context of operator training and digital factory applications.

Verification, Validation and Accreditation
The term validation is applied to those processes, which try to determine whether or not a simulation is correct with respect to the "reality". More prosaically, validation is concerned with the question "Are we building the right system?" Verification, on the other hand, seeks to answer the question "Are we building the system right?" Accreditation considers efforts to meet use case criteria. Here the question to answer is "Are the model and the system acceptable for use for a specific purpose?"

This track focuses general modelling aspects: model design methods, model representation forms and languages, model interpretation for verification, efforts and approaches for validation of model itself and as a part of simulation system. Application areas may range from archiving and communication technologies over industrial solutions to scientific systems.

Special attention is paid to formal approaches for verification and validation. Here, algebraic methods for the model constructing and generating as well as semantic dependent model interpreting are considered. In this context, XML-based model specification, transformation, and interpretation techniques are also significant.

The track handles VV&A methodology (VV&A planning, confidence levels, risk estimation, organisation, documentation, standards, cost estimation, technique application, result presentation, subject matter expert selection, fidelity, automation potential) as well as VV&A technology (documentation, CASE-tools, cross checking, requirements specification, knowledge based systems, configuration management, tool overview, simulation environments).

Simulation and Training
Motivation & Objectives
Highly skilled staff is an essential prerequisite for the safe and effective operation of industrial production systems. Simulation-based training plays an increasingly important role in qualification of plant personnel. In specific sectors such as aerospace or power stations, training simulators have already been successfully employed for many years. Latest developments in industrial information technology as well as the introduction of virtual product and process engineering provide a new technological basis for the cost-effective implementation of training simulators. Therefore, in near future the general spread of these technology in a variety of industrial sectors and applications is expected. Today ?s best practice, latest developments, and future concepts of simulation-based training in industry will be presented.
