Call for Papers: Optimization methods, mobile networks and data analytics: Applications in engineering and industry 4.0


The business world is changing and demands the integration of various engineering techniques to make the operation of the system in general more efficient. Optimization, information security and a prospective business vision is essential for companies to be more productive. The application of new technological solutions to manufacturing and management processes is one of the ways through which digital transformation in the supply chain advances, on the road to industry 4.0. To achieve this, optimization techniques, soft computing, machine learning and Big Data technologies must be combined. With this integration it is possible to work with real-time sensed data to build and simulate Digital Twins with very high precision.


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

Optimization in cloud computing.

Optimization in parallel computing.

Optimization in logistics, mobility and green supply chains.

Analytics, machine learning, big data exploration in engineering problems and health science.

Digital security, cryptanalysis, security risk and semantic technologies.

Large scale optimization, Stochastic Optimization and Optimization under uncertainty.

Internet of things for healthcare using wireless communications or mobile computing.

Optimization-simulation models in industry 4.0 and supply chain management.

Evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence and other metaheuristics for manufacturing process optimization and logistics optimization

Digital twins, discrete event simulation, system dynamics in supply chain management.

Fuzzy logic and fuzzy systems' integration within supply chain.

Soft computing methodologies

Integration of computer technologies in Life Cycle Assessment for the Supply Chain.

Modeling and optimization of edge and IoT system.
