ICT.OPEN2020 hosts the following tracks:
Artificial Intelligence (AI) represents a next wave in the digital revolution. Already AI is changing the way we live and work and has great potential for society’s grand challenges. At the same time, developing and integrating AI in a responsible way is not easy. Human-centeredness, value sensitivity and excellence across all AI aspects should pave the way towards augmented intelligence. Such AI is transparent, explainable, fair, socially compatible, and is developed and deployed based on careful consideration of the disruptions AI technology can cause. This track aims to provide a showcase and forum for connecting Dutch research on this theme.
The focal point of the parallel and poster sessions is the presentation of the work of young researchers. Preference will be given to abstracts by postdocs and PhD candidates.

Big Data / Data Sharing
This track looks at the convergence between data management and data sharing. What are new technologies and research directions in data management that enable data sharing? How is data sharing driving the development of data management technologies? Topics include: responsible data sharing, FAIR data, data management for data analytics, data markets and platforms, data integration.
We are looking for 15 minute talk and poster submissions.

Cyber-physical and Autonomous systems
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are systems characterised by a tight interaction between computation, communication and control elements (the cyber part) and physical processes such as motion, heating/cooling, vibration, wear and tear (the physical part). Examples include automotive, transport, healthcare, manufacturing, and robotic systems.
Autonomous systems are more and more present in our society due to advanced sensor and actuator systems. An example that is often used and will have significant impact on society are autonomous cars on our highways driving close to each other, considering each other’s behaviour without human intervention. This principle is also very useful for e.g., the ongoing 4th industrial revolution (smart industry) in relation to industrial robotics, smart energy systems, and smart cities to mention just a few.
This track aims to provide a showcase of the ongoing Dutch research in Autonomous systems and CPS. Topics of interest include autonomous robotics, autonomous vehicles, networked autonomous systems, sensor systems, embedded and real-time processing, embedded platforms, embedded networking, scheduling, safety-critical applications and mixed-criticality, multi-domain modeling, multi-disciplinary (co-)design, embedded, supervisory and feedback control, formal modeling and quality assurance. Topics of technology transfer or research valorization within this field are also of interest.

Education and training is the core business for academics. Industry wants state-of-the-art ICT professionals. This track will facilitate a dialogue on computer science education between Dutch universities, universities of applied sciences, and industry deploying ICT. The track will embrace a broad view of the current and future trends in computing education, including innovation of higher education and innovations for the purpose of lifelong learning.

Future energy systems will be very different from the systems that we currently have. Important factors include renewable power generation (solar, wind) being intermittent and uncertain, intensive power demands (EVs, heat pumps, industry) that can be bulky and disruptive. Moreover, new types of energy carriers (H2, biogas), and increasing interdependencies between energy systems e.g. between electricity and heat, play an important role. Future energy systems need to be reliable, manageable, resilient, safe, predictable, and affordable. In the management of these systems, the role of ICT and digitization will be increasingly important. This includes e.g. intelligent data analysis, algorithms, AI, optimization, simulation, coordination and allocation mechanisms, decision support, system integration, privacy, and security. In addition, ICT itself should be energy-efficient as well. We welcome abstracts in all areas relating ICT and future energy systems.

Security & Privacy
Security and Privacy issues arise in nearly all stages in the digitalisation of our society. Examples include the smart home or smart car that need to be secured against unauthorised access or malicious remote control. Consequently, the right to privacy becomes ever more important with the growing integration of digital technologies into our daily lives. For instance, think about maintaining data privacy of our electronic health records to prevent abuse and discrimination or the problem of browser/device fingerprinting and the creation of unique digital footprints with our every move online.
In this track, we deal with the multidisciplinary challenges around security and privacy in the digital society, discuss current and upcoming problems as well as mitigation strategies in order to pave the road for a secure and privacy-preserving future! The track covers (among others) the following topics: (embedded) systems security, software security, physical attacks, privacy enhancing technologies, network security, machine learning in security and privacy, and (applied) cryptography. In addition to the broad coverage of the topics mentioned, this year’s track will have a special focus on research valorization in security and privacy.

Software Engineering Technology (VERSEN)
Society and industry is ever more dependent on software, and many organisations crucially depend on business-critical or safety-critical software. Major challenges in the area of software engineering are how to guarantee software reliability, how to have sufficient flexibility to adapt software to new requirements and possibilities, and how to deal with the growing complexity of algorithms and software systems.
The SET track at ICT.OPEN 2020, organised by VERSEN – the association of software engineering researchers in the Netherlands, is a meeting place for researchers and practitioners in the field, as well as for everybody that is interested in understanding how to develop reliable software in a more efficient way. The track will present a selection of the best Dutch research in software technology and engineering of 2019.
We invite researchers to submit their best publication of 2019. From the submissions we will make a representative selection for presentation. Furthermore, we will select the best SET paper of 2019. In addition, during the track the VERSEN PhD award for the best PhD thesis in Software Engineering Technology will be presented.
