Call for papers - 2018 IEEE Smart Industries Workshop (SIW 2018)
June 18th, 2018 - Taormina, Italy Co-located with the 4th IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing SMARTCOMP 2018) 

Smart computing is at the core of all present and future technological
innovations. Novel paradigms are needed to allow scalable, real-time and
resilient communication among industrial devices, according to specific needs of
different industrial applications. Moreover, security issues in the connected
industry are paramount, since cyber attacks to these systems can have relevant
consequences for the safety of people.

The workshop on Smart Industries aims to bring together researchers from
academia and from industry to meet and exchange ideas on recent research and
future directions for smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0, focusing on
solutions that can improve efficiency, sustainability and security of the future
industrial processes. The workshop solicits contributions about novel solutions
and approaches, experiences and evaluations on emerging technologies. The
workshop is also a venue to discuss and disseminate projects results and to
receive early feedbacks on work-in-progress and disruptive approaches.

The topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  •   scalable and resilient protocols for industrial devices
  •   cloud solutions for industry 4.0
  •   emerging standards in smart industries and mobile systems
  •   industrial IoT
  •   secure and scalable SCADA systems
  •   realtime and timebounded operating systems and communication protocols for
  •    industry 4.0
  •   smart grids and energy distribution
  •   smart medical applications and devices
  •   smart transportation systems
  •   secure protocols for industrial applications
  •   applications of distributed ledgers to industry 4.0
  •   trusted computation in untrusted environments
  •   smart contracts for industrial supply chain
  •   incident detection and management
  •   information sharing in smart industries
  •   humanmachine interactions in cyberphysical systems
  •   innovative and secure sensing strategies for process monitoring and tracking
  •    of product history
  •   machine learning techniques applied to smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0
  •   smart tooling and inline part inspection
  •   improving manufacturing through IoT and big data analytics
  •   process safety in industry 4.0
