The conference emerged from a series of workshops on “CE” as concurrent engineering in the early 1990s. This method came with the opening of the doors of engineering departments to- wards other corporate functions as well as to cooperation with other firms. “CE” therefore in- creasingly stood for concurrent enterprising as the study of Concurrent Engineering and its effects on organizational and business concepts, namely the extended, virtual and networked enterprise. Since the pioneering days in the early 1990s, Internet became reality. In the infor- mation society collaboration across boundaries is normal, and innovation a general priority. In networks this is often based on individual initiative or entrepreneurship. CE topics therefore are more relevant today than they were back then.
The community that meets at the ICE conference is not only very active in projects, initiatives, and paper production; it has evolved and gained general academic and business reputation. The Technology Management Council of IEEE now is co-sponsor of the conference and publishes the papers on IEEExplore, and it is the EUROMOT European edition of the IA- MOT conference. With ACM, IMS, and PDMA e.V. joining, ICE is evolving into the leading European meeting place for raising questions, framing concepts, and bringing together con- crete projects and initiatives in engineering, technology and innovation.
Conference proceedings will be published in IEEE xplore

Call for Papers and Workshops
The Organising Committee invites different types of contributions for the three days of the con- ference. This aims to meet the various expectations and demands from academic and indus- trial point of view.
1. Call for Papers (New: Full Paper Submission!) Publication of papers
We publish one paper per presenting author only. All accepted papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings provided the final papers and registration for the full conference of at least one presenting author are received before the deadline and they conform to the layout guidelines as provided on www.ice-conference.org. The conference proceedings with ISBN number will be distributed to conference participants at registration.
Authors of selected research papers will be invited to submit extensions of the presented work to special issues of international scientific journal.
Submission is online only at www.ice-conference.org
For any questions please contact the ICE Programme Secretariat by email at
Send NOW your Expression of Interest to submit a paper, organise a session, workshop or tutorial in the conference, or serve in the conference committee to: [email protected]
An important part of the ICE conference program is conference sessions, workshops and tuto- rials.
The Organizing Committee invites proposals for half and full-day workshops, conference ses- sions and tutorials focused on specific topics and questions related to one of the conference’s tracks:
Engineering, Technology, and Innovation in Europe Concurrent Engineering and Product Development Intelligent Enterprise Systems
Proposals should be submitted in the conference publications format (up to four pages), and include the objectives and expected outcome of the workshop, the planned activities, the background of the organizer(s), the anticipated number of participants, and the means for so- liciting and selecting papers (if this is the case).
Full papers for workshops or special sessions can be peer reviewed in the conference process to be published in the conference proceedings.

The conference will have two main streams:
- Selected presentations from the open call for research papers and invited sessions. They will be introduced with keynote presentations from industry and academia.
- Accepted workshops, focussed sessions and tutorials aim to bring together users and experts in interactive sessions to discuss specific topics. The chair and co-chairs of each will organise selected contributions (presentations and/or demonstrations) in order to stimulate the debate.
