V International Scientific and Practical Conference
"Informatization of Engineering Education (Inforino 2020)" was held at the
National Research University "MPEI" on April 14–17, 2020 in Moscow, Russia. The
conference addressed topical issues of information technologies in education, in
engineering and scientific calculations, in experimental data processing, for
organizing distant access to laboratory and industrial equipment, in the
development of electronic resources and in distance learning in natural
sciences and engineering disciplines. A separate section was devoted to to
Industry 4.0 and cybersecurity. The conference was attended by participants
from Europe, Asia and America.
In connection with the coronavirus pandemic, as well
as in accordance with the recommendations of WHO, IEEE, regulations of the
Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia and the Moscow authorities,
the Inforino 2020 Conference was conducted using distant technologies - all
participants presented videos of their papers, and the plenary meeting was held
in the format of video conference.
The Program Committee Chair Nikolay Rogalev, rector of
the National Research University "Moscow Power Engineering Institute", noted
that the unusual format, in which the conference was held this year, fully
corresponded to its spirit, thanked the participants for the extra efforts in
preparing their presentations, and wished them successful work, establishing
new contacts and good health in this not an easy time.
The plenary meeting was broadcast on Webex and YouTube
(in English). The meeting was moderated by Konstantin Orlov, head of the Dept.
of Theoretical Bases of Heat Engineering, Institute of Thermal and Nuclear
Energy, Moscow Power Engineering Institute (MPEI - Russia), Deputy chairman of
the Organizing Committee.
The first to make a presentation "STEM Technology
Education" was Valery Ochkov, professor of the Dept. of Theoretical Bases of
Heat Engineering, Institute of Thermal and Nuclear Energy, MPEI.
Next presentation was made by Krzysztof Wesolowski,
professor of the Poznan University
of Technology (Poland) – "Problems and Challenges in Education in ICT at
the Poznan University of Technology".
The presentation "VR Simulator for Power Industry
Engineer Staff Trainings" was made by Ilya Simonov, Director of "CROC "Immersive
Andrey Chernetsov, associate professor of the
Department "Applied Mathematics and Informatics", MPEI Institute of Information
and Computational Technologies", presented "The Problem of Ensuring
Cross-Border Personal Data Transfer and Methods for its Solving" drew attention
to the security problems of cross-border transfer of personal data.
The plenary part of the conference was completed by
the presentation of Evgeny Druzhinin, an expert at the Information Technologies
Department of CROC, dedicated to cybersecurity in the energy sector.
presentations made at the Plenary meeting of the conference met deep interest
among the participants and a large number of questions addressed to the
Further the Conference
continued in sessions:
