Paper Submission for C16
SMC2018:C16 submission site (external site)
This special is devoted to novel research related to the next generation of intelligent, plug-and-play, cyber-physical industrial systems. The transformation of traditional monolithic, hierarchical and centralized legacy control and data acquisition systems is supported by the latest initiatives and technologies such as Industry 4.0, Cyber-Physical Systems, Internet-of-Things, Big Data and Internet of Services.
This special session provides a venue for knowledge related to the research and application of these new cybernetic methods into various industrial sectors, including production control systems, smart grids and smart cities, water/waste water treatment, transportation, healthcare and others.
A broad range of methodical contributions are encouraged including architectures, algorithms, protocols, and standard, however a clear link to application domain must be identified. We especially encourage validation of developed solutions on physical demonstrators, either in laboratory or real industrial environments.
