Industrial Technology and Management provides an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, methodology and applications of Industrial Technology and Management. The Conference looks for significant contributions to all major fields of the Industrial Technology and Management in theoretical and practical aspects. The aim of the conference is to provide a platform to the researchers and practitioners from both academia as well as industry to meet and share cutting-edge development in the field.
ICITM has been an annual event which was held in many places till now. ICITM 2018 welcomed author submission of papers concerning any branch of the Industrial Technology and Management, and their applications in education, and other subjects. The subjects covered by the ICITM 2018 include E-Business and E-Commerce, Engineering Economy and Cost Analysis, Information Processing and Engineering, Reliability and Maintenance Engineering and their applications.
ICITM conference proceedings are indexed by El Compendex and Scopus.
One of the reports was made my Anna Verinikina, lecturer of the department of political economics of RUDN Faculty of Economics who talked about economic risks management by the example of RUSAL, one of the biggest Russian companies. Co-author of the report – professor John Finley (Columbus University, USA).
Participants of ICITM 2018 were especially interested in the integration of eco management system in Industry 4.0 – a unified concept of production based on product life cycle management and smart production strategy with the use of IoT and cyber systems.
Bacteria in biofilms are 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics, disinfectants, mechanical treatment, and other types of stress. A chemist from RUDN University suggested a method to prevent the formation of biofilms and reduce the resistance of bacteria to antimicrobial medications. This might help increase the efficiency of antibacterial treatment in the food industry, medicine, and agriculture.
A specialist in spacecraft movement control analyzed the process of placing vehicle stages, boosters, and other space debris into the so-called disposal orbit and suggested cleaning lower orbits up with a spacecraft that has modules with engine units on board. These modules will attach to space debris objects and move them away. As for the geostationary orbit, a preferable way to clean it up would be a towing spacecraft that transports space debris objects into the disposal orbit.
A biologist from RUDN University studied the development of the immune response in prepubertal male and female animals. According to her, the severity and mortality of infectious and inflammatory diseases at this age depend not on the sex hormones, but mainly on the chromosome set or karyotype.
