Dear Geraldo Robson Mateus,

Let me kindly inform you that the International Conference on Sensor Networks (SENSORNETS 2015 - http://www.sensornets.org) steering committee cordially invites you to submit a paper to the SENSORNETS 2015 Conference, to be held in ESEO, Angers, Loire Valley, France. The deadline for paper submission is scheduled for September 9, 2014.

Current developments show that in the near future the wide availability of low cost, short range radio technology, along with advances in wireless networking, will enable wireless adhoc sensor networks to become commonly deployed. In these networks, each node may be equipped with a variety of sensors, such as acoustic, seismic, infrared, motion, biomedical and chemical sensors with higher level of information inference associated with identification, embedded signal processing and networking of the data. This conference intends to be the meeting point of researchers and practitioners share experience and ideas on innovative developments in any aspect of sensor networks, including Hardware of Sensor Networks, Wireless Communication Protocols, Sensor Networks Software and Architectures, Wireless Information Networks, Data Manipulation, Signal Processing, Localization and Object Tracking through Sensor Networks, Obstacles, Applications and Uses.

SENSORNETS is interested in promoting high quality research as it can be confirmed by last year acceptance rates, where from 74 submissions, 14% were accepted as full papers. Additionally, 19% were presented as short papers and 30% as posters.

Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus.
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/). SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).

Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session. Please check the website for further information (http://www.sensornets.org/BestPaperAward.aspx).

Workshops, Special sessions, Tutorials as well as Demonstrations dedicated to other technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.

SENSORNETS 2015 will be held in conjunction with PECCS 2015 (www.peccs.org) and PhyCS 2015 (www.phycs.org) in ESEO, Angers, Loire Valley, France. Registration to SENSORNETS will enable free attendance to any sessions of PECCS and PhyCS conferences as a non-speaker.

We hope to welcome you in ESEO, Angers, Loire Valley, France next February, 2015!
Should you have any question please don't hesitate contacting me.

Kind regards,

Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Production and Logistics Systems (CIPLS’14),

Bülent Çatay, Turkey, Raymond Chiong, Australia, Patrick Siarry, France


Call for Papers

The management of production and logistics systems in today’s fierce competition environment is a difficult task and has become progressively complex. Major changes in products, processes, technologies, and societies bring along remarkable challenges and increasing market demands. Modelling and optimisation of complex problems arising in production and logistics systems is of paramount importance in surviving and achieving competitive gains in productivity and quality.

In recent years, the advancements in computer technology have allowed researchers to tackle large-scale problems and to develop and integrate efficient optimisation techniques for solving them. Within this context, CIPLS aims to address issues related to the design, planning, control, and continuous improvement of production and logistics systems using computational intelligence, including local search methods, evolutionary algorithms and other nature-inspired optimisation techniques. The intention is to cover various aspects of production from aggregate planning to shop-floor execution systems and modelling, planning and control of logistics systems. Studies incorporating real-world applications are highly encouraged.


Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

·         Production planning and control

·         Flexible manufacturing systems

·         Integrated production system and process design

·         Capacity planning

·         Lot sizing

·         Assembly lines

·         Inventory control

·         Facilities planning and design

·         Transport and distribution planning

·         Vehicle routing and scheduling

·         Multi-modal transport

·         Sustainability and green logistics

·         Logistics network design

·         Decision support systems in production and logistics

  Camera-ready for pre-proceedings: August 10, 2014

  Symposium: September 11-12, 2014

  Accepted papers will be published in full text in hardcopy 
post-proceedings, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series 
of Springer Verlag.

TCS JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE: As in previous years, selected high-quality 
papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of the 
Theoretical Computer Science (TCS) Journal.

HOW TO SUBMIT: Full papers are to be submitted electronically using the 
EasyChair server.
Original research papers must contain results that have not previously 
appeared and have not been concurrently submitted to a journal or 
conference with published proceedings. Each paper should select a track 
to submit to. Since there can be a lot of overlap of the three tracks, 
the selection of a track is a suggestion and all papers will be handled 
by the single PC to ensure that each paper is handled by PC members of 
the expertise area. Authors need to ensure that for each accepted paper 
at least one author will register and attend the symposium. Submissions 
are limited to twelve (12) single-column pages on letter/A4-size paper 
(using at least 11 point font, 1 inch margins, standard line spacing, 
preferably formatted in the LNCS style). This includes figures, but 
excludes references and an optional appendix (to be read at the program 
committee's discretion).
