Call for Papers: Digitization of Organizations: Towards a New Paradigm of Real-Time Systems (Compse 2020)


Today, companies are immersed in a process of digital transformation that has come to be part of a new operating paradigm. Business structures must be flexible and accelerate their evolution to digitize all their activities. A more horizontal structure is necessary, which provides a fluidity and adaptability that allows generating a rapid response to constant and increasingly rapid changes This context of change forces companies and organizations to rethink their internal and business processes. This situation affects all types of companies, whether small, medium or large, with a national or international presence. The digital transformation process is a global and universal process. Emerging techniques and technologies such as IoT, Big Data, and Deep Learning can create greater efficiency, meaning, and insight in businesses and in society at large. In short, it is a great opportunity for companies to respond to competitiveness challenges.

For these reasons, this special volume encourages the participation of experts in related areas for the development of systems, algorithms, optimization methods, concepts and computer interfaces that allow the development of digital twins in various sectors such as manufacturing, chains supply, health systems and others.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scope:

- Digital Twins application areas, including manufacturing, 

healthcare, smart cities, finance, and education.

- Healthcare

- Cyberphysical systems

- Internet of Things

- Large Scale Optimization in real time

- Blockchains

- Heuristic Algorithms

- Machine Learning
