3.        Casting Versus Fabrication
4.        Selection of Sensors, Transducers and Actuators
5.        Open Loop /Feedback system modeling
6.        PCB Design and Fabrication
7.        Selection of Off-the-Shelf Hardware vs. In-House Development of  Electronic Hardware
8.        Software Modeling
9.        Human-Computer Interface
10.      Open Source Software Versus Proprietary Software
11.      Open Source Software Versus in-house Software Development
12.      Microprocessors and Micro-controllers – Future trends
13.      SERCOSE III
14.      Industrial Ethernet 

15.      CAD/CAM
16.      Virtual Reality
17.      Internet of Things 
18.      Cloud Computing
19.      E-Commerce
20.       Rapid Product Development: A Reverse Engineering Perspective
21.      Rapid Prototyping: A Reverse Engineering prospective
22.      Product Design Techniques in Reverse Engineering
23.      Product Evolution: A Reverse Engineering Perspective
24.      Model driven Reverse Engineering
25.      Enterprises of Reverse Engineering
26.      Any other topic related to machine tool development

Publication

The proceedings of the workshop shall be published by a renowned international publisher as a book series.

Submission Guidelines

WRE 2018 seeks original book chapters on any of the topics listed above. Content of the chapters will mainly be of the tutorial nature. A chapter should not exceed 30 pages (16,500 words, considering 550 words on average per page). All chapters must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another workshop, book series, conference or a journal. WRE 2018 will follow a double blind review process for all submission.


Authors of the accepted book chapters must conduct a workshop on their focused topics at WRE 2018 venue, in order for their chapters to be included/published in the book series.
Workshops shall be characterized by talks, demonstrations, experimentations and lively discussions. Authors must also submit a brief proposal (2 pages) consisting of the following along with their chapters:

§  Title of the proposed workshop

§  Topic(s) addressed

§  Names of conducting persons/authors of the chapter

§  Length of the workshop

§  Goals of the workshop

§  Contents of the workshop (e.g., talks, discussions, experimentations etc.)

§  Expected outcomes

§  Expected follow-ups

§  List of requirements for the workshop

 

All submissions must be made via email to wre2018@giki.edu.pk. All submission (book chapters and workshop proposals) will be judged on relevance to the field of Functional Reverse Engineering for machine tools and expected level of interest in the topic.
