Special sessions

Special session 1:
Title: Exploring Interactions in Virtual Reality: Advancements, Applications, and Future Directions.

Proposers: Dr. Anna Sibilska-Mroziewicz; Dr. Jakub Możaryn
Warsaw University of Technology, Faculty of Mechatronics

Virtual Reality (VR) is an increasingly popular and versatile technology beyond entertainment. With a rapidly expanding market for hardware and VR games, it has become evident that VR holds immense potential for various domains, including education and engineering research.
As Confucius wisely said, “Tell me and I will forget, show me and I will remember, let me do, and I will understand.” VR enables us to interact with virtual objects, conduct many experiments, and analyze complex systems by visualizing abstract properties such as forces, potentials, and accelerations. It empowers us to acquire new skills without depleting valuable resources, enhance our precision in movements, and gain deeper insights into the inner workings of things.
In education and engineering research, VR equipment is invaluable in diverse applications. It facilitates training for complex medical procedures, refines athletic performance by optimizing techniques in sports like tennis, and aids in designing automated factory setups. Furthermore, VR allows for the visualization of chemical reactions, testing mechanical systems and control algorithms, and constructing intricate Rube Goldberg machines. The potential applications extend to rehabilitation for patients and training for athletes. In essence, the possibilities are boundless.
The main objective of this proposed special session at MIDI2023 is to foster the exchange of ideas and experiences related to interacting with Virtual Reality applications, specifically in education and engineering research. The session will be hosted on the Oculus Workrooms platform, enabling participants with Oculus Quest 2 to join as virtual avatars. Traditional online participation through video or audio streaming will also be available.

Special session 2:
Title: Securing the Future: Advances in Cyber-Physical Systems and Digital Twins.

Proposer: Dr. Jakub Możaryn
Warsaw University of Technology, Faculty of Mechatronics

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) combine computational and physical elements, bridging the digital and physical worlds for enhanced monitoring, control, and automation. They are found in various domains and industries, including transportation, energy, manufacturing, healthcare, agriculture, smart cities, and infrastructure, enabling advancements such as autonomous vehicles, smart grids, and intelligent buildings.
As industries rely more on remote Internet access, safeguarding critical facilities has become crucial. The heightened importance of cybersecurity in securing cyber-physical systems against failures and cyberattacks is driven by the current international situation. One research area focuses on designing fault diagnosis schemes for sensors and actuators, primarily to compensate for malfunctions through fault-tolerant control actions, while estimating the remaining useful life of system components has gained recent attention due to maintenance costs from inefficient operations and premature failures. Integrating cyber and physical components in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) enhances their efficiency but presents new research challenges due to increased susceptibility to cyberattacks.
This special session focuses on digital twins, a promising solution within cyber-physical systems to improve their efficiency, safety and security. Digital twins are virtual replicas of physical assets and processes, enabling real-time monitoring, analysis, and control. The session acknowledges the importance of digital twins in enhancing the protection of cyber-physical systems.
We invite researchers and practitioners to participate and actively contribute to our special session. We encourage sharing experiences in designing benchmark cases, conducting algorithm tests, and presenting innovative solutions that ensure secure and resilient control within cyber-physical systems. By joining the session, they will have the opportunity to explore the latest advancements in the fields of cyber-physical systems, cybersecurity, digital twins, fault-tolerant control, and resilient control, thus playing an integral role in shaping the secure future of such systems and driving forward the realms of digital interaction.
