ESTEP Workshop: Impact and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence techniques in the Steel Industry

Jueves, 29 de Octubre de 2020

Hasta el 29-10-2020

The workshop is dedicated to key players of the steel sector such as steel manufacturers, systems integrators, solution providers, academic and R&D experts. Contributions from other process industry sectors are welcome.

The Web-Workshop will be held in four web-sessions:

  • Session 1 (October 15): Enablers & Barriers: Case Studies from steel and other sectors
  • Session 2 (October 22): Needs and impact of AI & ML on the steel industry
  • Session 3 (October 29): Implementation, IT-OT links, Cybersecurity, HMI & M2M
  • Session 4 (November 5): AI in steel Operations: examples


Participation fee:

  • 50€ per person for 1 session
  • 150€ per person for all sessions

Company fees:

  • 150€ for 1person
  • 250€ for 2 persons
  • 300€ for 3 persons
  • 350€ for 3persons



Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) allow computers, robots, products mimicking human behavior considering humans as key players of smart networks. Out of the economical and financial aspects of business, AI applications are already implemented or under development in the steel factories. Therefore, time is mature for a dedicated event to analyze consequences and opportunities offered by AI. It is time also to rationalize the fascination of creating digital and cyber-physical systems able to learn from experience through ML without fears on the centrality of human role. The participation of the steel community and other industrial sectors is a step ahead towards the achievement of such aims with the ambition to share the perception of AI, to provide indications to dedicated R&D actions with the involvement of UE sectors and the definition of needs and expectations of the involved players. Societal aspects and deep consideration of the impact on workforce and education systems are also major issues to be considered to empower human role in the Smart Factory. Workforce must be provided with skills to foster a conscious fearless approach capable of seizing opportunities by enriching operators and decision makers with the benefits of AI.



Experts, ICT engineers and managers, solution providers and system integrators, suppliers, universities and research institutes, consulting companies, national and international organizations operating in steel and other industrial sectors are invited to submit abstracts on AI-related topics relevant to the steel context such as the ones reported in the following not exhaustive list:

  • Industrial needing and R&D directions in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Data management and data quality issues relevant for the application of AI and ML
  • Advantages, capabilities and trends in the industrial application of AI and ML
  • Constraints, opportunities and threats of data-driven technologies, including cyber-securityaspects
  • Standards and Artificial Intelligence Management Models in Process Industry
  • Impact of AI and ML: workforce, operations, systems and organization
  • Examples and Experiences.




  • Submission of abstracts to be sent to September 18, 2020
  • Information on acceptance September 25, 2020
  • Opening online registration September 16, 2020
