Benoît IUNG was born in 1962 in Nancy, France. He is full Professor of Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) at Lorraine University (France). He conducts research at the Nancy Research Centre for Automatic Control (CRAN, CNRS UMR 7039) where he is co-managing today a research group on Sustainable Industrial System Engineering (about 60 people). His research and teaching areas are related to advance maintenance engineering, PHM, predictive maintenance technologies, sustainability, cyber-physical production system (CPPS) and Industry of the Future. In relation to these topics he took scientific responsibility for the participation of CRAN in a lot of national, European (i.e. REMAFEX, DYNAMITE) and international projects, for example, with China (i.e. EIAM-IPE, CENNET), Chile (i.e. iMaPla) and Brazil (i.e. COFECUB frame). He is now the coordinator of the European project AI-PROFICIENT (call ICT-38; 2020-2023). He has numerous collaborations with industry in the frame of Convention for Research Program (mainly in France with EDF, CEA, RENAULT, ARCELORMITTAL) and served until 2018, as responsible of a common Lab called PHM-FACTORY with PREDICT company (ANR LabCOM). He is now the IFAC CC5 chair (2020-2023) addressing Cyber-Physical Manufacturing Enterprises issues and was previously the chair of the IFAC TC5.1. (2017-2020). He was until 2014 the chair of the IFAC WG A-MEST on advanced maintenance, and until 2020, the chair of the ESRA TC on Manufacturing. He is a French CIRP fellow since 2017, a PHM society fellow from 2018, a founding Fellow to the ISEAM and to the European IAM Academic and Research Network, a nominated member of the IFAC TC 5.3. He had also a guest position in the NSF industry/university cooperative research centre for intelligent maintenance system (Univ. of Cincinnati; until end of 2017) and is currently Visiting Professor at Tongji University (Shanghai, China). He serves as project manager on “Industry of the Future” for the University of Lorraine since 2016 which allows him to be involved in EFFRA and A.SPIRE European associations. Benoît Iung has (co)-authored over 220 scientific papers and several books including the first e-maintenance book in Springer. He developed several keynote speeches on PHM in international conferences and attended as reviewer, faculty opponent or examiner for a lot of Ph. D. and “docent” defenses in France and in Europe (UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and Italy). He has supervised until now 21 Ph. D. Students. He served as IPC member of various IEEE, CIRP and IFAC conferences and developed expertise/reviewing for European Commission in the frame of H2020 from 2015. He is an Editor of the IFAC Journal of Systems and Control. Benoît IUNG received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in Automatic Control, Manufacturing Engineering and Automation Engineering, respectively, from Lorraine University, and an accreditation to be research supervisor (2002) from this same University.
