The goal of the workshops linked to ER 2001, the twentieth overseas Con- rence on Conceptual Modeling, used to be to offer individuals the chance to offer and speak about rising sizzling issues, therefore including new views to conceptual modeling. This, the twentieth ER convention, the ?rst of the twenty first century, used to be additionally the ?rst one in Japan. The convention was once hung on November 27-30, 2001 at Yokohama nationwide college with 192 members from 31 international locations. ER 2001 encompasses the complete spectrum of c- ceptual modeling, from theoretical elements to implementations, together with basics, purposes, and software program engineering. particularly, ER 2001 emphasised e-business and reengineering. to satisfy this target, we chosen the subsequent 4 issues and deliberate 4 overseas workshops: – overseas Workshop on Conceptual Modeling of Human/Organizational/Social elements of producing actions (HUMACS 2001) production organisations need to confront a number of calls for. The aggressive weather, more desirable through verbal exchange and data sharing, would require incr- singly quick responses to marketplace forces. patron calls for for better caliber, larger providers, and cheaper price will strength brands to arrive new degrees of ?exibility and flexibility. refined consumers will call for items personalized to fulfill their wishes. Industries have to this point sought to deal with those demanding situations basically via advances in conventional capital through fitting extra strong and software program expertise. cognizance to the function of people mixed with organizational and social schemes in production has purely been marginal. The workshop HUMACS 2001 aimed to problem the relevance of this final point.

Saving in steel, corrosion and put on keep watch over of laptop components are the issues of accelerating precedence. traditional constructional fabrics are not able to supply re legal responsibility and sturdiness of kit less than stipulations of elevated operating speeds and lots, competitive medium assaults and increased temperatures. strategy to those difficulties contains switch in homes of the outside layers of goods, within the first example, through depositing useful coatings on computer elements. Rela tive simplicity of the method and. essentially limitless probabilities of various houses of coatings have ended in their huge utilization in computer development and delivery undefined, software engineering, radio electronics and different industries. Coating presents capability for boosting constructional energy of steels and al loysl. It makes attainable a mixed approach while one crew of dislocation mechanisms is used for bulk hardening (grain refining, production of good sub granular dislocation structures), whereas the operating floor is hardened via different mechanisms (dislocation density raise, separation of extra stages, etc). mixed hardening saves helpful alloying parts and offers relief in steel intake of machines and buildings. Coating permits production new composites that mix excessive sturdiness (fatigue resistance, put on resistance) with enough reliability (fracture toughness); enhancement of operational balance of laptop elements and instruments in comparison to balance possible utilizing traditional warmth therapy tools; recovery of worn surfaces and, therefore, aid favorite for spare parts.

This quantity originates from the 3rd Nonlinear keep an eye on Workshop "- namics, Bifurcations and Control", held in Kloster Irsee, April 1-3 2001. because the previous workshops held in Paris (2000) and in Ghent (1999), it was once geared up in the framework of Nonlinear regulate community funded by means of the ecu Union (http://www.supelec.fr/lss/NCN). The papers during this quantity focus on these keep an eye on difficulties the place phenomena and strategies from dynamical structures thought play a dominant function. regardless of the massive number of strategies and strategies found in the c- tributions, a coarse subdivision should be given into 3 components: Bifurcation difficulties, stabilization and robustness, and worldwide dynamics of keep watch over s- tems. a wide a part of the fascination in nonlinear regulate stems from the truth that is deeply rooted in engineering and arithmetic alike. The contributions to this quantity mirror this double nature of nonlinear regulate. we wish to take this chance to thank the entire participants and the referees for his or her cautious paintings. additionally, it's our excitement to thank Franchise Lamnabhi-Lagarrigue, the coordinator of our community, for her s- port in organizing the workshop and the complaints and for the great efforts she places into this community bringing the cooperation among the d- ferent teams to a brand new point. particularly, the alternate and the energetic p- ticipation of younger scientists, additionally mirrored within the Pedagogical colleges in the community, is an asset for the sphere of nonlinear control.
