REV 2010 is the seventh in a series of annual events concerning the area of remote engineering and virtual instrumentation. The REV conferences are the annual conferences of the International Association of Online Engineering (IAOE) (www.online-engineering.org). REV2010 will be held at Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (Royal Institute of Technology, KTH) in Stockholm. The general objective of this conference is to demonstrate and discuss fundamentals, applications and experiences in the field of remote engineering and virtual instrumentation. With the globalization of education the interest in and need of teleworking, remote services and collaborative working environments now increases rapidly. Another objective of the symposium is to discuss guidelines for education in university level courses for these topics. REV 2010 offers an exciting technical program as well as academic networking opportunities during the social events.

Scope of the conference

Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation are very future trends in engineering and science. Due to:

  • the growing complexity of engineering tasks,
  • more and more specialized and expensive equipmentas well as software tools and simulators,
  • the necessary use of expensive equipment and software tools/simulators in short time projects,
  • the application of high tech equipment also in SME's,
  • the need of high qualified staff to control recent equipment,
  • the demands of globalization and division of labour,

it is increasingly necessary to allow and organize a shared use of equipment, but also specialized software as for example simulators. Organizers especially encourage people from industry to present their experience and applications of remote engineering and virtual instruments.

The general objective of this conference is to discuss fundamentals, applications and experiences in the field of remote engineering and virtual instrumentation.
The use of virtual and remote laboratories is one of the future directions for advanced teleworking, remote service and e-working environments.
Another objective of the symposium is to discuss guidelines for education in university level courses for this topic.
