AbstractThis chapter describes the principal changes in hotel and catering employment at the sub-regional, or country scale, revealing a very uneven spatial pattern. Some of the major demand-side factors are identified as the key determinants of the changing geography of hotel and catering employment. It is a diverse industry and the effect of demand-side changes has resulted in differing levels of employment change in the various activity groups which form the sub-sectors of this industry. The varying growth rates in the different activity groups are examined, arguing that the faster rate of growth in catering compared to accommodation services has certain important spatial outcomes. This is reflected in the changing levels of sub-regional specialization and the extent to which certain countries are dominated by one particular industry sub-sector. The changing nature of spatial specialization in employment in the hotel and catering sector in the 1980s is also examined. The hotel and catering industry is a diverse mix of catering and accommodation services. Within the sub-regions of the UK during the 1980s, these services responded to a complex set of demand stimuli to produced varied and changing mosaic of regional dominance and collectively an uneven pattern of employment change and specialization. The individual regions of the UK have had different experiences of the changing character of the hotel and catering industry during the 1980s.

Linking the ceramic industry, creativity and education in Jingdezhen, China: given at the First British Ceramics Biennial Conference Artists into Industry at the Wedgwood Museum in Stoke-on-Trent, October 2009Crabbe, M. James C. (Intellect, 2009)From 3 October to 13 December 2009, Stoke-on-Trent hosted the first British Ceramics Biennial. This grew from the legacy of the Stoke Ceramics Festival, setting ambitious aims as a festival and as an ongoing part of the city. A conference on ‘Artists into Industry’ at the Wedgwood Museum formed an important part of the Festival, where this article was presented.
A hybrid method for secure and reliable transmission on industrial automation and control networks in industry 4.0Karimireddy, Thanmayee; Zhang, Sijing; University of Bedfordshire (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019-11-11)Industry 4.0 initiated the need of networking the factory automation, control and manufacturing facilities by forming industrial automation and control networks. These industrial networks transmit control packets with stringent security and reliability requirements. In this paper, a hybrid method is proposed to ensure secure and reliable transmission of the packets on these industrial automation and control networks. This method is based on hybrid cryptography and reliable properties are incorporated into it to ensure both secure and reliable delivery of the packets to the receiver. Evaluation of the proposed method is undertaken in this report based on the simulation studies.
Guaranteed timely delivery of control packets for reliable industrial wireless networks in industry 4.0 EraKarimireddy, Thanmayee; Zhang, Sijing; University of Bedfordshire (IEEE Computer Society, 2017-07-27)Industry 4.0 initiated the need of networking the factory automation and manufacturing facilities by forming industrial wireless networks. The industrial wireless networks transmit control packets having hard real time traffic with stringent deadline and reliability requirements. This paper presents a novel control panel approach that guarantees timely delivery of the control packets in a reliable industrial wireless network. Considering the wireless channel contention in these networks, the control panel aims at offering deterministic channel access time to each node in the network based on their relative message deadlines. A deterministic channel access algorithm is proposed in this paper to offer time guaranteed control packet delivery and a parameter, Pguarantee is developed to determine the probability of timely delivery of control packets before the deadline. The use of this proposed deterministic channel access algorithm in Industry 4.0 applications along with adaptive error control approach helps in supporting the timely and reliable delivery of the control packets. The performance of the proposed method is shown through detailed analytical and simulation experiment results in this paper.
