"Automation of Business Relationships in Industry and Business" – Professor Dr. Georg Borges will open this year's ReMeP conference in Vienna as keynote speaker on September 5, 2022 at 9:30 am with his keynote on this topic. The ReMeP – Research Meets Practice – IT conference takes place annually. This year’s hybrid conference focusses on "Integrated Platform Solutions for Industry 4.0".

Professor Borges will present results from the ongoing research project "Industry 4.0 - Legal-Testbed", funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action. Together with its consortium partners, the Institute of Legal Informatics at Saarland University analyzes the legal issues related to the automation of contract negotiations as well as to the legally binding conclusion of contracts by means of software agents in Industry 4.0 networks. Integrating blockchain technology, the legally and security-related processing of information from the transport and production use cases is validly designed. Further, automated contract execution is accomplished using smart contracts.

At 10:30 am, Professor Dr. Schwenk from the Horst-Görtz-Institute for IT-Security at the Ruhr-University Bochum will present the specific implementation of a logistics contract in the form of a smart contract within the Hyperledger Fabric Blockchain Framework as one of the results of the project “Industry 4.0 - Legal-Testbed”.
