Lisbon (Turismo de Lisboa)

The term “digitalization” represents a major ongoing transformation in industry and services where the adoption and integration of a large variety of novel information and communication technologies leads to more efficient, flexible, agile and sustainable systems. Digitalization became one of the key aspects of Industry 4.0. Current trends towards Industry 5.0 introduce a complementary view, targeting a sustainable, human-centric, and resilient industry. The notion of Society 5.0 represents an even more comprehensive strategy on science, technology and innovation aiming a people-centric super-smart society.

As demonstrated in recent editions of PRO-VE, collaborative networks play a central role in these transformative processes. In fact, such ambitious goals can only be achieved through collaboration among multiple stakeholders, collaboration among intelligent / autonomous systems, and collaboration among human and systems.

PRO-VE 2022 aims to be a forum for sharing and discussing current developments and experiences regarding the role of collaborative networks in digitalization as well as identifying and discussing challenges ahead towards a collaborative Society 5.0.

Contributions are invited from multiple and diverse disciplines both as Engineering, Managerial and Socio-Human sciences: industrial engineering, computer science, manufacturing, organization science, logistics, management, and social sciences, among others. This wide array of disciplines will allow to fuel both the interdisciplinary nature of the research and development on Collaborative Networks, as well as the multidisciplinary sharing spirit of the PRO-VE Working Conferences.
