DoCEIS 2018 – 9th Doctoral Conference on Computing, Electrical and Industrial Systems

May 02-04, 2018, Caparica, Lisbon, Portugal

Technological Innovation for Resilient Systems

Call for Papers
The 9th Advanced Doctoral Conference on Computing, Electrical and Industrial Systems (DoCEIS 2018) reflects the growing need for development and integration of resilience into technological systems, due to increased rate of disruptive events around the globe. Such events are due to a variety of causes – globalization, natural hazards and climate change, economic crisis, demographic shifts, fast technological evolution, terrorism and cyber-attacks, rise of nationalisms, to name a few – and challenge the way systems are designed, implemented, and managed. Furthermore, rapid advances in Smart Sensors, Actuators, Embedded Intelligence, and their seamless integration into multiple Systems Architecture and Platforms have revolutionized the technological world, and even the way we live. However, the pervasive nature and growing complexity of technology increased the level of vulnerability, which poses a big threat to human existence.

The objective of the conference is to share research findings and do brainstorming on the challenges and promising approaches for development of Resilient Systems, in order to curve a clear, distinctive and well defined pathway for future work.


Key activities of the conference include:
-Presentation of research results by PhD students (co-authored by their supervisors).
-Tutorials by invited experts on scientific, methodological, or soft skills topics.
-Presentation and discussion of the base ideas of the theses plans.
-Discussion of the scientific and technical challenges in the Electrical and Computer Engineering areas.
-Sharing of experiences among PhD students from different geographical regions.
-Forum on practical aspects (e.g. Publications, job markets, careers, etc.).
-Creation of collaboration (social) networks.

Prospective authors of research papers are invited to submit their manuscripts reporting original work, in any of the scientific areas of the conference. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques, and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Nevertheless, each paper must make a clear link to the main theme of the conference, including a section describing that link.
Following the successful previous editions, proceedings are expected to be published by Springer, IFIP AICT series (indexed in Web of Science, SCOPUS and DBLP). Best papers will be considered for possible inclusion in a special journal issue.
There will also be poster discussion sessions focusing on PhD thesis plans. These sessions are designed to provide early feedback to PhD candidates in the initial phase of their studies. For PhD theses recently finished (during the last year), a special type of submissions is invited.

The scope of the conference will cover, but will not be limited to, the following topics:
* Computational and Perceptional Systems
* Energy
* Enterprise Collaborative Networks
* Electronics
* Signal Processing
* Smart Biotechnology
* Informatics in Electrical Systems
* Industry Information Systems
* Telecommunications
* Biomedical Engineering
* Robotics and Integrated Manufacturing

Important Dates:
* Now – Abstract Submission
* 8 Dec 2017 – Full paper submission
* 13 Jan 2018 – Author notification
* 2 Feb 2018 – Camera Ready Submission
