Call for Papers: Decision Support Systems and Intelligent Algorithms for Industrial IoT and Big Data (Submission Deadline November 30th 2021)

Special Issue Information

Aim and Scope:
Decision Support techniques are providing a promising solution to the industry for building Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Big Data systems to make innovation at a rapid pace. IIoT is creating many research challenging issues for the industry and academia, towards novel potential impacts on the monitoring, control and understanding of world, weather, social life, security, health, emergencies and so on. It can blend with the latest methods, algorithms and technologies involved with artificial intelligence (AI) and Big Data. The solutions to these challenges are expected soon to provide an effective and scalable support for the computation, data storage, analysis and use of the data that will be created by the explosive adoption of the IIoT, Big Data and machine-to-machine communication in many contexts.

This topical collection aims to offer a systematic and most up-to-date overview, latest research trends, advanced research and mixed method approaches of this new research field. It aims to provide innovative Decision Support approaches, models, systems and algorithms to effectively support decision making in IIoT environments. It also includes platforms, applications and services for IIoT and Big Data, such as Industry 4.0, supply chain and smart manufacturing. The user and organizational adoption are also amongst our interests. It will provide a leading forum for disseminating the latest results of research, development, and applications in the area of Decision Support Systems and Algorithms (DSS) in IIoT and Big Data Environments. Advanced IIoT and its applications/services in Industry 4.0, integrated systems and smart algorithms are largely welcome. We select some top papers from IoTBDS 2021 http://iotbds.org/, COMPLEXIS 2021 http://www.complexis.org/ and IIoTBDSC 2021 http://iiotbdsc.com/, which require an extensive improvement prior submission. We also welcome a small number of high-quality paper submissions that are not presented at these conferences.
