The EPIC consortium is organizing an invited session at 16th IFAC Symposium on Information Control Problems in Manufacturing (INCOM 2018). The 2018 IFAC Symposium on Information Control Problems in Manufacturing (INCOM 2018) represents the 16th event in the rich tradition of triennial IFAC events in manufacturing sciences and information technologies. The International Programme Committee is chaired by Prof. Monostori while the invited session titled "Digital Twins asthe heart of Cyber-Physical manufacturing systems" is organized by four leading researchers of EPIC CoE.

The series of ECMI conferences are devoted to enforce the interaction between academy and industry, leading to innovations in both fields. These events have attracted leading experts from business, science and academia, and have promoted the application of novel mathematical technologies to industry. The ECMI 2018, orginazed among others by the Institute for Computer Science and Control of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA SZTAKI) and sponsored by the Centre of Excellence in Production Informatics and Control (EPIC), is hoped to further enhance multidisciplinary research and development both in academia and industry, leading to the formulation of challenging real-life problems, where mathematics may provide significant new insights and at the same time may be inspired by those interactions.
