DEMI 2017 Conference

Dear colleagues and friends,

The DEMI Conference has already been recognized as a very successful international conference that provides an opportunity to engineers, researchers and experts world over to present the latest scientific and professional accomplishments in mechanical and industrial engineering. 

The goal of the Conference is to bring closer new research and development results in mechanical engineering to the conference participants as much as to discuss the possibility of applying them in the industrial systems. 

For the first time, the 13th DEMI Conference will be co-organized with universities from Serbia, Montenegro, and Romania, with motivation to offer an excellent international platform for academic community, researchers, engineers, and industry representatives to share their experience and to establish new professional and business bonds. 

Selected papers from DEMI 2017 will be recommended for the publication in one of the following international journals after further revisions:

ICAS 2017 Conference , Hunedoara, Romania

Organized by the Polytechnic University of Timisoara and the University of Banja Luka, at the Faculty of Engineering of this Romanian University in Hunedoara, Romania from 10 to 12 May 2017 was held the International Conference on Applied Sciences (ICAS 2017) .

The conference was organized in cooperation with the Romanian Academy of Sciences, the Academy of Sciences and Arts of the Republika Srpska, the Academy of Technical Sciences (Timisoara) and the Association of Romanian Engineers (Hunedoara branch), bringing together more than 200 participants from Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, America, Germany, Austria and France.

At a meeting focused on the application, impact, and influence of applied science and technology at the industry, their works were exhibited by several professors and researchers primarily from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Electrical Engineering and the Natural Sciences University of Banja Luka. The work of the conference was organized in several sessions, which included works from the following fields: material science, mechatronics, electrical engineering, computer science and fundamental science.
At a conference whose coordinator was prof. Dr. Tihomir Latinović, on behalf of the University of Banja Luka, welcomed the Vice Rector for teaching prof. Dr. Strain Posavljak, who was also a member of the honorary committee.

The conference held in Hunedoara was attended by the Ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Romania, Dr Mile Vasić, Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering UNIBL prof. Dr Branko Blanuša, Director of the Chamber of Commerce of the Republic of Srpska, Dr Dragica Ristić, Director of the Republic Pedagogical Institute of Republika Srpska, Predrag Damjanović, and Chief of the Department of Economy of the City of Banja Luka Radenko Komljenović.

The International Conference on Applied Sciences – ICAS 2018 will be held next year in Banja Luka under the support of the Ministry of Science and Technology, the University of Banja Luka, the City of Banja Luka, the Chamber of Commerce, the Pedagogical Institute, the Academy of Sciences and Arts of Republika Srpska, the University of Timisoara and WUHAN University of China.

During his stay in Hunedoara, Rector Strain Posavljak also met with Krinel Gafton, the director of the chamber of commerce Hunedoara, as well as with Dan Boboucan, Mayor of Hunedoara.

Increase Manufacturing Operational Performance with the Internet of Things

According to Michael Porter, Harvard Business School Professor, sustainable competitive advantage requires both the right strategic positioning and operational effectiveness. The Internet of Things provides companies with the opportunity to take advantage of both of these business success components to create and sustain market leader status in the next decade.

A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a biochip transponder, an automobile that has built-in sensors to alert the driver when tire pressure is low — or any other natural or man-made object that can be assigned an IP address and provided with the ability to transfer data over a network. So far, the Internet of Things has been most closely associated with machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in manufacturing and power, oil and gas utilities. Products built with M2M communication capabilities are often referred to as being smart. (See: smart label, smart meter, smart grid sensor)
Kevin Ashton, cofounder and executive director of the Auto-ID Center at MIT, first mentioned the Internet of Things in a presentation he made to Procter & Gamble. Here’s how Ashton explains the potential of the Internet of Things:

“Today computers — and, therefore, the Internet — are almost wholly dependent on human beings for information. Nearly all of the roughly 50 petabytes (a petabyte is 1,024 terabytes) of data available on the Internet were first captured and created by human beings by typing, pressing a record button, taking a digital picture or scanning a bar code.

The problem is, people have limited time, attention and accuracy — all of which means they are not very good at capturing data about things in the real world. If we had computers that knew everything there was to know about things — using data they gathered without any help from us — we would be able to track and count everything and greatly reduce waste, loss and cost. We would know when things needed replacing, repairing or recalling and whether they were fresh or past their best.”
