Title: Environmental Perception and State Estimation Based on Multi-sensor Fusion for Autonomous Driving
Currently, intelligent vehicles have been extensively studied, and accurate environmental perception and state estimation are key technologies for autonomous driving. However, commonly used in-vehicle sensors have their own drawbacks. For example, cameras are easily affected by illumination changes, the sparseness of point cloud limits the application of LIDAR for long-distance objects recognition, the millimeter-wave Radar cannot be used for low-speed targets detection, and the satellite's signals of integrated navigation systems are easily blocked. Therefore, a single vehicle-mounted sensor is difficult to deal with complex traffic scenarios for autonomous driving. Multi-sensor information fusion refers to the integration of data from multiple sensors to produce more reliable, more accurate or more precise environmental perception information. The multi-sensor fusion perception system can accurately reflect the characteristics of the detected targets, eliminate the uncertainty of information, improve the reliability of the perception system.The aim of this workshop is to bring together the research accomplishments provided by researchers from academia and the industry, as well as to show the latest research results in the field of environmental perception and state estimation based on multi-sensor fusion for autonomous driving. We encourage authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the subject of both: theoretical approaches and practical case reviews.

Title: Intelligent Implementations in Digitalized Real World
As digital sensors become cheaper and more prevalent, the growing amount of available data helps to digitalize the real world while improving the requirement for the accompanied intelligent implementations, which are able to finish expected tasks qualitatively, efficiently and robustly. The reasons for this are multi-fold. Firstly, compared with the human-designed implementations, the intelligent ones are adaptive to the different deployed environments, which produces customized solution and leads to more qualitative performance. Secondly, different from the fixed strategies in conventional implementations, the intelligent ones are teachable; this ability of self-evolution helps to explore the more efficient solutions automatedly. Thirdly, unlike the traditional implementations that fully focus on the available data, the intelligent ones have the ability of possible future prediction, which leads to the consideration of consequential situations and provides more robust solutions. In this Workshop, we therefore propose a dedicated theme on “Intelligent Implementations in Digitalized Real World”, which aims to arouse the research attention on qualitative, efficient and robust intelligent solutions including, but not limited to, system design, framework implementation, data processing, task formulation, performance evaluation, theory reasoning and software design.

Title: Multi-Goal Decision Making Techniques and its Applications
In practical applications in nature and society, semi-structured and unstructured decision-making issues involve multiple criteria (or goals) that may conflict with each other. The success of decision-making lies in whether mangers, administrators, supervisors, and other decision makers can comprehensively consider and understand the insight of future for making the best decision-making planning and choice. Multiple-criteria decision making (MCDM), multiple-objective decision making (MODM), multiple-attribute decision making (MADM) are used to lead decision makers to analyze multiple-goal optimization issues from various perspectives.
The evaluation and selection methods (e.g. analytical hierarchy process (AHP), fuzzy AHP, analytical network process (ANP), fuzzy ANP, decision making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL), fuzzy DEMATEL, Choquet integral, etc.) are important tools for MCDM, MODM, and MADM. Furthermore, these methods can be employed to explore the relationship structure among criteria for a variety of related issues arising from the nature and society fields. For instance, MCDM, MODM, and MADM methods can be applied to the evaluation of new technologies adoption based on limited resources, the evaluation of new development investments, the priority of resource allocation, etc.

Title: Towards the Internet of Underwater Things
The innovative concept of Internet of Underwater Things (IoUT) has widespread applications such as collecting real-time aquatic information, naval military applications, maritime security, natural disaster prediction and control, archaeological expeditions, oil and gas exploration, shipwrecks discovery, water contamination, marine life observation and underwater monitoring. IoUT has become a powerful technology to support these applications and it has great potential to develop a smart Ocean. It is a novel and vibrant paradigm for the Blue Economy sector bringing the ability to communicate autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), sensing, actuating and transferring this data to control centers using regular Internet speeds through low cost technologies. The possible network architecture of IoUT is naturally heterogeneous and must be flexible enough to work under unpredicted ocean conditions. The IoUT framework incorporates several underwater communication technologies based on magnetic induction, optical signals, radio signals and acoustic signals. In addition, edge computing, optical wireless communication, data analytics, blockchain and machine learning are viewed as promising techniques to support IoUT. This workshop addresses most recent frontier research investigations and associated practical solutions for IoUT. It aims to bring together the research accomplishments provided by leading researchers from academia and the industrial experts.

Title: Employ Artificial Intelligence Approaches for Classification and Segmentation of Different Abnormalities
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence. Machine learning feeds a computer data and uses statistical techniques to help it "learn" how to get progressively better at a task, without having been specifically programmed for that task, eliminating the need for millions of lines of written code. Machine learning consists of both supervised learning (using labeled data sets) and unsupervised learning (using unlabeled data sets). Deep learning is a type of machine learning that runs inputs through a biologically-inspired neural network architecture. The neural networks contain a number of hidden layers through which the data is processed, allowing the machine to go "deep" in its learning, making connections and weighting input for the best results. The aim of this workshop is to bring together the research accomplishments provided by researchers from academia and the industry. The other goal is to show the latest research results in the field of Deep learning and artificial intelligence. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the subject of both: theoretical approaches and practical case reviews.

Multi-material additive manufacturing combined with intelligent robots plays an increasingly important role in industrial manufacturing. Unlike the more common single-material additive manufacturing, the multi-material additive manufacturing can produce complicated patterns of dielectrics, metals and even magnetic materials by combining multiple deposition heads within a single integrated system. This has inspired lots of interesting research work in recent years, e.g. metal additive manufacturing, robot motion control, visual detection of molten pool, deep neural networks and path planning of robots, etc. Moreover, extensive attentions are attracted on studies of molten pool feature extraction, application of intelligent robots, control system of additive manufacturing and laser welding methods.
