Special Workshops and Tracks

Workshops can be proposed which fall within the scope of the conference.

Workshop proposals should be emailed to Philippe.Geril@eurosis.org, by indicating the type of workshop you would like to organize, before December 15, 2019. When preparing a workshop submission, please consider the link to the event and the specific nature of your proposal. A confirmation email will be sent to verify that the proposal was received.

VR/AR Simulations in Education

The synergy of education and technology can transform the world we live in. A virtual/augmented experience is usually achieved by feeding sensory information to a user via virtual displays (head mounted displays, 360 screen displays, etc.), and sounds. Along with this, it is also important for the user to provide an interaction to the virtual world. An important part of any VR/AR project is the level of detail and immersion that the user can experience. In previous generations of VR/AR technology, the visual experience from the virtual world was limited due to hardware limitations and it was very difficult to simulate the world realistically. With the advances in computer graphics technology available today, we have access to technology that can easily simulate things in the real world. This workshop will complement the target of the ISC'2020 conference by bringing together academic and industry researchers from the area of building simulation and VR/AR tools for industrial and educational/training purposes.

AREA42 Project meeting

We are involved with a new project in the field of B2B trade innovation which aims to start with pre-operational meetings from January 2020 onward and a first full organizational meeting in June 2020 at our ISC conference.
At this point in time we are seeking interested simulation, modelling, AI, Data experts to attend and take part in these meetings which will focus on:

New simulation environments for trade risk assessments models.
For the last decades all trade related risks, should they be operational, financial, geopolitical were assessed based on documents certifying one representation of the reality at a given moment plus when possible historical data to build probability, actuarial models. Nowadays technology allows us to leverage on a bigger variety of datasets (think social media, supply chain, weather, payments etc) sometimes accessible instantaneously. Which simulation could you propose to build and test the next trade risk assessment and prediction model? How could we test the impact of new sources of data on trade event.

Discrete Simulation Modelling Techniques and Tools & Simulation and AI
As far as simulation modelling techniques are concerned, it would be interesting to find graphical approaches to trade simulation modelling. A neutral, graphical, transparent representation of a transaction would allow a better understanding and assessment of the trade risk. The system could automatically generate simulation programs based on trade parameters. Such projects would involve Process Flow, Visual Modeling, Visualization and Animation, Business Process Modeling. Such a tool would benefit all trade parties. It would help financiers and insurers to have an exact representation of the trade to offer the best solution. It will help traders/exporters/credit managers optimizing their trades and negotiate the solutions proposed.

AI and Neural Networks
Behavioural and neural analysis of trade decision makers, such as commodity traders or credit managers as a preliminary study to the build of a trade credit robo advisor - any technology mentioned can be used.

Agent-Based Simulation
Agent Based Simulation of payment behaviour in B2B commerce, an analysis per country, sector and level of digitization of the economy.

IoT & Industry 4.0
Due to the heterogeneity of these components and their interdependencies, it is urgent to find a simple way for fast IoT-generation that guarantees interoperability and reconfiguration. How could we identify and request access to relevant IOT sensors to support the risk assessment in a trade context? What are the current blocking points?

Simulation in Environment, Ecology and Marine Biology
How to assess and predict the environmental/biological/medical impact of a B2B trade? Which data / criteria should be taken into account to do so? How could we score and rank such impact for it to be taken into account in a procurement decision?

Other topics
Next to these specific ideations on modelling topics, some other ideas that we'd be interested to explore came to mind:

  • Current and future effects of climate change on socio economical dynamics on a country level / Country risk analysis. Spatio temporal analysis.
  • Current and future effects of climate change on corporate performance in different sectors.
  • Is there value in diversity of credit risk models or can one credit risk model capture it all?
  • Is there and can we quantify the influence of platformisation on payment behaviour? Hypothesis can be that Platformisation issues trust and will provoque different payment behaviour between customer and supplier. This would have a major influence on Credit insurance through platforms.
  • Can we apply self explaining Machine learning (AI) algorithms to credit risk modelling? Credit risk models suffer from the fact that they need to be explained to the regulator. Most of the AI algorithms remain rather black box and do not deliver the reason for the model outcome. In order for AI to enter fully into the credit risk modelling it needs to be self explaining? Could we create such models and what are the data requirements (volume and kind) and how do they perform with respect to traditional models.
