The IEEE Industrial Informatics Conference is a premier conference in
industrial informatics which brings together industry experts, engineers,
researchers and academics to exchange ideas and experiences surrounding
frontier technologies and methodologies, break-through and innovative
solutions, applications and process models.

Background and Objectives
As Automation becomes more wide spread and pervasive, the vision of
intelligent and collaborative industrial environments with dynamic, agile and
reconfigurable enterprise structures has become a reality. As industrial
systems have become more intelligent, automated, dynamic and distributed
and monitoring and control of operations has shifted towards the Internet as
is the case for sales and e-services. A key factor in the success of such
industrial environments is the creation of the underpinning information
infrastructure to carry out the required services. The development of frontier
technologies, that lie on the intersection between Industry, business and
advanced ICT systems form the very foundations of Industrial Informatics.
This conference continues the highly successful series of IEEE conferences
on Industrial Informatics held in 2003 in Canada and 2004 in Germany.
INDIN is an annual conference and closely collaborates with industry and

Perth, Western Australia
We are pleased to host the 2005 IEEE Industrial Informatics conference in Perth.
Our city is located on the Swan River and the Indian Ocean, affording a
temperate environment all year around. Our multi-cultural population makes for
a diverse range of activities for you to experience while visiting and our
easy-going nature will make you feel welcome and relaxed. Perth, voted one of
the most liveable cities in the world, is leading the way in innovation,
investment, industry development and exports. The spacious city with many parks
is surrounded by wonderful areas for site seeing including wineries, beaches,
bird life, and natural wonders such as Wave Rock, the Pinnacles and to the
North the Ningaloo Reef or explore the beehive-like formations of the Bungle
Bungles with the help of an Aboriginal guide. In the city, you can enjoy a
cold beer in an open-air pub, shopping at affordable prices, the bustling
weekend markets, and tasty outdoor international cuisine.

Western Australia has enormous mineral and petroleum resources as well as rural and non-rural industries stimulating the Australian economy and covering
diverse technological developments in fields such as bio-industries,
manufacturing, ICT, transport logistics, ship building, imports and exports.
The mature industry provides advances in marketing intelligence and
emerging knowledge through a Western Australian base encouraging overseas
trading and investment.  We are honoured to host this prestigious conference
in Perth.
