                             A New Wave of Innovation in Collaborative Networks
                      Nowadays, the information society is becoming a reality with low cost broadband networks, extended by
                      mobile or wireless networks, allowing seamless connection and use of applications and services (i2010:
                      Annual Information Society Report 2007).

                      With the arrival of new services, an emerging challenge of collaborative innovation between new types of
                      individual and organizational users who are using more and more ICT services and products. The rise of
                      user-created content is opening further perspectives for a more creative and innovative Information
  Adolfo Steiger      Society, in the same way that users exploited open source software and standardization to develop new
      Garção          collaborative processes.
  Scientific Chair
   This move is supported by emerging technological trends such as the migration towards very high-speed networks,
   ubiquitous wireless technologies, web 2.0, the Internet of Things, Grids, web-based services, integration of web services
   in mash-up user interfaces, user-created content and social networking. These trends will affect the business and working
   environment, providing new industrial opportunities and new solutions for eBusiness and employment, in a single
   information space.
   For a new wave of innovation, grand challenges highlight new user collaborations, new organizational forms, cross-
   domain dimensions of interoperability, interoperability technologies being accessible to all organizations and users and
   the need to take into account the concerns of many small developers and users scattered across Europe and the world.
   ICE’2008 will bring together leading researchers and practitioners from around the world to present their latest findings
   from research and share practical cases from industry. Authors, workshop and tutorial organizers and participants in
   general, are invited to contribute to the shaping of the debate, in the scope of a new wave of innovation in collaborative
   networks and a single information space.

Innovation is our Tradition
                                                                                                           researchers and
   Since the early 1990s the European Society for CE has been actively involved in bringing together leading academics,
   practitioners in a common forum so as to stimulate the exchange of ideas, views and latest research and developments in
   the field of Concurrent Engineering and Extended Enterprising. For many years, ICE has become a proactive knowledge
   community (www.ESoCE.net) and a lively and engaging meeting place for thought leaders in the domain of Concurrent

   Since inception this event has evolved and grown in terms of size, nature, number of papers presented quality of papers
   and presentations, quality of proceedings and countries represented. Compared to other events in the domain, ICE is
   unique for its good balance between industrial and academic participation and the multi-national character of the event.

                                        MANUFUTURE European Technology Platform
                          José Manuel Mendonça (53) is a Full Professor at the Department of Industrial Engineering and
                          Management of the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto and President of the Board of
                          Directors of INESC Porto. He is also a non-executive member of the board of Fibersensing, SA,
                          a member of the Support Group of the Manufuture European Technology Platform, of the
                          Management Board of the MIT Portugal EDAM-Engineering Design and Advanced
                          Manufacturing Program and he is the National Scientific Coordinator of the UTEN-University
                          Technology Enterprise Network.

 Abstract: Manufacturing, generating wealth and jobs by fully exploiting knowledge and resources, is the fundamental
 enabler and sustainer of Europe’s Competitive and Sustainable Development. Manufacturing in Europe provides
 presently 41,5 % of the added-value (over €1,535 million) and 30,4 % of the employment (34 million people), with each
 job at the factory floor generating two other jobs in services.
 Manufacturing in Europe is presently under threat and in crucial and urgent need to add value and decrease costs by
 embedding design and technology, as to compensate for the fierce competition from the emerging economies.
 The need to keep manufacturing operations and jobs in Europe calls for industry transformation, as to ensure strong
 cost reductions, increased flexibility and smaller response times while keeping high standards in product quality with
 increasing complex novel products.
 But the ability to manage increased product complexity, by spreading subcontracting and outsourcing, cannot be
 achieved without building collaborative networks over the complete supply and value chain.
 Enterprise interoperability is thus a stringent requirement in highly competitive manufacturing value chains. And it is also
 an emergent one if we want to be able to design and deploy a competitively sustainable European Production System,
 through the use of disruptive technological processes enabled by digital production.

           Title of presentation: 2.0 and Collaborative Working Environments: What can we learn?

                                                       Wolfgang Prinz
                                Fraunhofer FIT, Collaboration systems research department in FIT
                          Prof. Wolfgang Prinz, PhD (FIT) has a PhD in computer science from the University of                  6
                          Nottingham. He is deputy head of Fraunhofer FIT in Bonn, division manager of the
                          Collaboration systems research department in FIT, and Professor for cooperation systems at

                          Environments, Social Computing and Web 2.0. He participated in and managed several
                          national research and international research projects and he is currently coordinator of an EC
                          funded project on collaborative work environments (Ecospace).

 Abstract: Web 2.0 applications are becoming more and more widespread, not only for leisure and entertainment, but also
 for business purposes. As developers of collaborative work environments, we need to ask ourselves, if we consider this
 wave of new ideas and applications as a hazard that sweeps us away or if we can learn to surf this wave. In my
 presentation I’ll first distill Web 2.0 applications and technologies to identify the basic concepts. Then I’ll discuss how
 these concepts can be used for the design and development of cooperative work applications.

Abstract: IMS is an international program to support R&D in manufacturing among the advanced developed countries of
Japan, USA, European Union, Korea and Switzerland. As the first government-supported program to offer a multi-lateral
global approach to research in advanced manufacturing, IMS continues to innovate and reinvent itself in order to be
relevant to researchers around the globe. In its latest response to researchers input from the IMS Vision Forum, IMS has
launched the “Manufacturing Technology Platform Initiative”, or MTP. The MTP initiative is a unique program that threads
research and researchers together in a simple way to solve manufacturing challenges of today and the future. The
program not only simplifies the process for organizing research under the IMS banner, but it also promotes a spark of
new ideas through wider networks that are created. MTPs are focused knowledge sharing platforms for researcher
groups that are already engaged in a specific R&D domain. There is overlap in much research that is conducted. Rather
than duplicate work, an MTP initiative seeks cooperation to conduct joint research in projects that are already running.
This ultimately saves resources for the “golden nuggets” of their research, and finds common solutions to manufacturing
challenges in the process. MTP’s also provide an opportunity for researchers to meet, exchange information, and
generate new ideas for research.

                                                 Title of presentation:

                                                      Randall Wright

                                           Massachusetts Institute of Technology
                                              MIT Industrial Liaison Program
                         Randall S. Wright is a Senior Liaison Officer with MIT's Industrial Liaison Program. He manages
                         the interface between the managements of companies, headquartered in the United States and
                         Europe, and the senior administration and faculty of MIT.
                         As a Senior Liaison Officer for MIT, he takes part in the analysis of business, technology and
                         commercial problems within companies, and translates these problem needs into faculty
                         resources at MIT. His work has included securing consulting help to corporations for
                         restructurings, cost reduction programs, and new product development. He has also
                         administered strategy sessions for the top managements of corporations that have been held at
                         MIT. He has also helped corporations to develop research programs with MIT laboratories.
                         Prior to becoming a Senior Liaison Officer for MIT, Mr. Wright was a Marketing Manager for
                         Pfizer, Inc., a major U.S. pharmaceuticals company. He was also a Strategic Planning Analyst
                         for Pennzoil Company--a Fortune 500 oil and natural resources company.
                         Mr. Wright has been an invited speaker to deliver keynote addresses at many innovation
                         conferences and technology parks in Europe over the past ten years.
                         He holds a BME with distinction from the University of Minnesota, an MS in metallurgy from
                         MIT, and an MBA from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business.

         Corporations generally decline or fail because they fail to generate new value for shareholders. This value generation   8
         often takes some form of innovation. Many executives believe that a vital relationship with a university can play an
         important role in a corporation’s continuing to generate new value. Yet, why do some corporations manage to
         develop successful relationships with universities and others do not? Randall Wright, Senior Liaison Officer with MIT
         Office of Corporate Relations, proposes that the single most important factor is how the corporation views the
         university. Based upon his twenty years experience at MIT he has found that corporations either view the university
         as a vendor or as a source of consultative knowledge. Viewing the university as a vendor produces minor outcomes
         for the corporation; viewing the university as a source of consultative knowledge can produce major impacts on a
         firm’s development of strategy and initiatives to improve ROA. Factors that universities need to consider to create
         meaningful relationships with corporations are discussed. A list of seven practices that corporations should adhere to
         in order to develop successful relationships with universities is presented.

Abstract: The infrastructure of the Internet has and will continually evolve to support and enable new services, trends and
businesses. Europe is committed to take a leading role in exploring the emerging visions for the Future Internet that will
drive the requirements for its underlying network and service infrastructure. Also, ICT is evolving from a facet of business
operation and a collection of consumer gadgets to a critical infrastructure that underpins the economy and society. In
parallel, the mechanisms for and even the nature of innovation are changing. The next EU Work Programme for
Research in ICT will reflect this unavoidable move towards a larger share of the economy/social activities moving on line,
with a need to make the Internet capable of supporting a larger number of usages whilst remedying to the current
deficiencies in terms of presentation, security, trust, scalability, mobility, etc. All the "visions" presented would then
become use cases in relation to an all-encompassing research objective federated under, and driving the requirements
towards, a "Future Internet" Challenge.

COPRA - "Collaborative Practice" – (Room 5 - 11h00)
Chair: Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dieter Thoben, Norbert Jastroch
Enterprise interoperability and collaborative working are two aspects of interenterprise collaboration. The first one implies rather a
systemic view, the second one rather an activity related view on collaboration of enterprises within their ecosystems. Information
technology is challenged to support both aspects. The predominant approaches to interenterprise collaboration still let show lack of
dealing with this from the perspective of composite practices. On this background, the session aims to put forward a sample of
ways how to bring in features that ease the deployment of interenterprise collaboration systems.

DPI - "Defining performance indicators for cross-enterprise processes" (Room 5 - 16h00)
Chair: Dana Shishmanian
Some axes of reflection and research proposed are: What is the scope of performance indicators. Which are the semantic levels
for defining performance indicators. Which methods we have for defining performance indicators for industrial and logistic cross-
enterprise processes. What is the gap to a complete definition: Is the semantic approach completely satisfactory? What do we lose
when trying to translate a modelling formalism into another? How to identify these inexplicit contents, how to explicit and formalize
them? How can we capture and quantify performance indicators in different industrial and professional areas: ideas, methods,
techniques, tools, researches. Innovation exploratory fields: free for theoretical and empirical experimentations...

 INNOFIT Workshop – “Demand creation and preparation of a sustainable regional Joint Action
 Plan for GALILEO / EGNOS-based applications in Europe” - (Room1 – 08:30)
 Chair: Dr. Jürgen Vogel
  The workshop focuses on the process of “demand creation” based on technological progress, here in the sector of global navigation
  satellite systems (GNSS). The sector has been traditionally linked with space industry, but opens now widely to information and
  communication technologies (ICT) thus bearing the chance to move away from the usually adopted approach of technology-push
  towards “market-pull”. Good Practices in demand creation are discussed and exchanged at the level of cluster managers and SME
  supporters. In addition, the second part of the workshop offers a platform for inter-cluster collaboration of companies and initiatives
  within the satellite navigation / space-based application clusters in Europe.

DFS – “Difac – Towards a Digital Factory Solution” – Special Session – (Room 3 – 13h30)
Chair: Edna Pasher
Co-Chair: Myrna Flores
DiFac (Digital Factory for Human-Oriented Production System) is an IST research project (FP6-2005-IST-5-035079) funded by the
European Commission within the 6th Framework Programme priority called “Collaborative Working Environments”. The aim of the
project is to develop an innovative, collaborative manufacturing environment (CME) for the next generation of digital factories to
support the competitiveness of Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Within a digital factory, virtualised environments facilitate the
sharing of factory resources, manufacturing information and knowledge, and support collaborative design, planning, production,

 AGSS – “Agricultural Special Session” - (Room 4 – 08h30)
 Chair: Nel Wognum
 In this session different highly actual themes in the agricultural sector will be addressed. The first theme is sustainability of the food
 chain, which is gaining more and more importance on EU level to limit energy consumption and environmental impact. The second
 theme is R&D potential needed for innovation in food processing to satisfy ever increasing consumer demands. The third theme
 concerns choices for particular quality levels and accompanying coordination of the food chain, in particular the pork chain, in
 Europe. The last theme addressed in the workshop concerns the use of ICT to support and stimulate a local farmer's market. The
 broad range of themes illustrates the importance of current developments in the food sector.

CVE-SME - "Collaborative Virtual Engineering for SME's - (Room 4 – 10h30)
Chair: Mehmet Mürümlüoglu
As successful SMEs extend their reach and scope in a globalizing world, they face the challenge of maintaining their key
competitive strengths: agility, creativity and decision speed. Managers or specialist engineers are increasingly on business trips
and often cannot be reached for idea generation, problem solving or decision making. Paradoxically, the problem of remote
collaboration is further intensified by the growing use of applications like CAx, PDM, ERP or groupware systems. These systems
and their data are usually not available remotely and thus the modern nomad does not have the basis for meaningful collaboration
and decision making which leads to delays, quality problems and lost opportunities. The main goal of CoVES is to develop a
flexible collaboration environment with access to rich data and application for nomadic professionals and partners targeted
towards SMEs. This session presents prototypical results including the characteristic requirements of SMEs, current tools and
practices for mobile working, the targeted technical architecture, an industrial use case as well as the environment for evaluation
and optimization. The session is concluded with a live demonstration of the platform prototype and an open panel discussion.

VEI – “Value of Enterprise Interoperability in the context of Innovation Eco-systems” – Workshop
(Room 4 – 13h30)
Chairs: Antonio Grilo and Roelof van den Berg
This workshop has as primary objective to increase the knowledge of participants about the changing business context of
Enterprise Interoperability (EI) and its consequences for approaching the value of EI. Traditionally EI has been approached as a
predominantly technical issue and the discourse about it has long been dominated by attempts to reduce the technical complexity
of what was essentially dedicated integrations between specific enterprise-centric system implementations. Technical progress in
this respect since the early days of EI has been significant and even in some ways radical, but in the mean time the original
assumptions about the business context of EI behind the changing technical solutions have remained largely intact. Together these
assumptions constitute a perspective on EI as a function to improve efficiency of operations within and between enterprises in
relatively stabile supply chains that address relatively stabile markets where competition is price-based and advantages derive first
of all from possibilities to create benefits of scale and efficiently offering more of the same. This business logic does no longer
constitute the basis for a sustainable business strategy in the era of globalization and individualization. Instead value increasingly
derives from offering radically new solutions, that are not conceived by a single enterprise but instead originate in a dynamic
network of business partners, or what is now understood as an “innovation eco-system”. The purpose of EI in this new business
context needs to be reconsidered accordingly.
                                                                                  Antonio Grilo, Roelof J. van den Berg, Man-Sze

 GSCWE – “Globalisation Strategies and Collaborative Work Environments” – Special Session
 (Room 5- 8h30)
 Chair: Hans Schaffers
 Globalisation issues are in the heart of EU policies regarding integration, trade, employment and social affairs, and the
 information society. Collaborative working environments driven by strong technological integration and application of ICTs enable
 companies to exploit global networking. The New Global study (http://www.ami-communities.eu/wiki/New_Global) explores how
 globalisation affects the way companies are operating and investigates how even small and medium-sized companies can
 respond and anticipate to globalisation forces, and how such companies may extend their business opportunities in a beneficial
 way by establishing new collaborative working environments. The objective of this special session is to identify and discuss the
 policies and strategies of companies, including small and medium-sized businesses, to cope with the challenges of globalisation
 and in particular how collaborative work environments may contribute to such strategies.

  Interenterprise operability appears to be of high complexity with regard to technology, organisation, and
  application. It poses many challenges to supporting ICT solutions, frequently resumed under the term
  interoperability. New paradigms, like service oriented architecture and model-driven development, offer new
  approaches to systems engineering. The session aims to facilitate reflection on these issues as a means to
  stimulate innovative approaches to the interoperability of systems supporting networked businesses. It addresses
  the subject from different perspectives, like systems engineering, business process modelling and mapping,
  semantic technology and ontologies.

For industry to survive in the new economic picture, they must find an organisational solution enabling them to
cope with global business opportunities without suffering from limited resources or exposing them to the risk of
direct investment. The inclusion of services to support knowledge intensive activities in products and in production
is the most important added-values to improve competitiveness of companies in a global market. This special
session will address some of these related issues being developed under the scope of some research projects.

INO – “Interoperability for Networked Organizations” – Special Session - (Room 6 – 15h30)
Chair: Erwin Folmer
Synopsis: There is an increasing need for interoperability between organisations that want do business or work together
electronically. In order to increase interoperability, the information exchange between organisations has to be optimized. This can
be realized by taking care of at least two important issues: (1) defining an interoperability-architecture covering all the
organisations involved, and (2) standardisation of the information to be exchanged. An interoperability-architecture covers
various aspects of interoperability, such as a domain model of the organisations and their environment, the shared working
processes between the organisations, information to be exchanged and its semantics, applications to be used for information
exchange, platforms to be used for realizing the actual exchange. Standardisation ensures that the information exchange is
efficient and that organisations can flexibly switch between various partners. In addition, it enables the avoidance of vendor lock-
in, because the interface with ICT-systems is clearly defined and not dependent on the internal workings of the system.
This session discusses interoperability-architecture aspects within government projects. But also quality aspects of
interoperability, especially related to standards.

CWE IP - “Living Labs experience feedback from the CWE IP project” – Workshop – (Room7 –
Chair: Angelos Ktenas
The objective of this workshop is to get feedback about the current implementation of the Living Lab concept within the CWE
projects. The Living lab concept appears to be like a "coin" having two sides, the most known one are is the user-centric
innovation environment (collaboration among all stakeholders, and on openness as regards attracting new stakeholders and
developing innovation opportunities) and the less known one is the user-centred multidisciplinary research (collaboration among
different sciences such as computer science, social sciences, socio-economic, socio-ergonomic and socio-cognitive for a
complementary approach of exploration, observation and evaluation where users are also engaged into the co-design). Inside
the coin there are the necessary infrastructures, whose research infrastructure is one of them, supporting the existence of the
Living Labs and serving both sides.

    LABORANOVA, “CWE for strategic innovation” - Workshop – (Room 2 – 9h30)
    Chair: Roberto Santoro
    The ICE Conference in Lisbon happens in coincidence with the completion of the second year of the Laboranova project (IST-5-035262-
    IP), a project aimed at creating a new collaboration environment for strategic innovation, also within the context of Living Labs. Next
    generation Collaborative Tools are presented in the workshop in an interactive way: the three Laboranova pillars (Ideation, Connection,
    Evaluation) are shown in an integrated scenario. Existing collaborative working environments (CWEs) mainly focus on supporting
    traditional working paradigms of linear workflows by providing IT-based platforms for planning, scheduling and executing tasks. However,     24
    organisations need to increase their capacity for carrying out open-ended and nonlinear problem solving involving a wide participation of
    people in knowledge-rich environments and this must be supported by the next generation CWEs..The goal of Laboranova is to create
    this next generation Collaborative Tools which will change existing technological and social infrastructures for collaborating and support
    knowledge workers and eProfessionals in sharing, improving and evaluating ideas systematically across teams, companies and
    networks. Laboranova involves the integration of the three central RTD-domains, each dealing with a critical aspect of strategic
    innovative work; ideation, connection, and decision/evaluation. Theoretical and technological foundation for all domains are considered
    and framed.

TS-CoSpaces – “CoSpaces: Training in Collaborative Working” (Room3)
Chair: Pedro Maló
The training in Collaborative Working (CW) aims to provide knowledge and skills that allow trainees to understand the why’s and how’s of
today’s common issues directly related to collaboration at work. The training to be delivered at ICE is constituted by three sessions: 1)
Fundamentals of CW and Collaboration Methods – This training session intends to introduce the trainees to the CoSpaces Training
System and general ideas and basic concepts of collaboration, CW and CW environments and to establish the fundamental and applied
understanding of collaboration and its manifestations between individuals and engineering teams; 2) Collaborative Workspaces and
Demo – consolidates the trainees knowledge on the key aspects of collaborative workspaces, based on meaningful case studies and
demonstration. Three generic classes of workspaces have been considered – distributed workspaces, co-located workspaces and
knowledge-supported mobile workspace – within three reference industries – automotive, construction and aerospace; 3) Collaborative
Technologies & Innovation – focuses on technological competences and skills of the CoSpaces Software Framework to support to ease
creation and use of collaborative workspaces and in business innovation aspects related to CW, advantages, opportunities and solutions.

EUROMIND – “How to Improve European Shipbuilding Supply Chain Collaboration by Connecting
Digital Systems via Open Standards” – (Room 6 – 14h00)
Chair: Malte Ulrich
Despite fierce global competition, the European Maritime Industry has proved a strong player, due to intense co-operation between the
members in its cluster. The total added value of the European Maritime Industry amounts 111 billion EURO. Direct and indirect, almost 2,5
million people are being employed.
In such a large network, with strong interdependencies, clear communication is essential. The need for clarity and unambiguous
communication is essential especially when electronic means of communication are used. This is true for both internal processes within
companies as well as external communication with clients, partners and suppliers.
In view of this trend, EUROMIND identifies solutions for optimising communication, co-operation, speed, cost-effectiveness, quality and
security. EUROMIND enables companies to optimise their business processes in the business model of the future. It is a key issue for
effective global business and therefore a must for our high tech maritime industry. However, some essential requirements must be

EIBMVA – “Enterprise Interoperability Business Models and Value Analysis” – Workshop – (Room 8 -
Chairs: Man-Sze Li and Servane Crave
Subtitled "Enterprise Interoperability business models and open innovation, towards a new approach to value analysis for Enterprise
Interoperability", this workshop aims to increase the knowledge of participants on new business models which have already impacted the
field of Enterprise Interoperability (EI) and will increasingly do so. Recent research indicates the need for EI rises as the company
engages more intensively and openly with its business partners and customers. EI as an enabler is directly linked to the openness of the
business model, the intensity of the company’s innovation process and the degree of engagement of the company with its business
partners and customers. All of these contribute towards increasing the value level that a company may achieve. The workshop will help
identify research themes on open business models and new value analyses needed in the field of EI. In particular, it will help chart the
most promising pathways to R&D in these areas, particularly in the context of enabling Open Innovation.
