Call For Papers

We welcome both survey and original articles. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Xplore Database which is indexed by EI. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to top international journals in these areas.

Given the fact that technology advancement in these areas is so fast, we also welcome 4-page short papers to present valuable and latest progresses of ongoing projects. Note, all manuscripts shall be written in English, using the IEEE conference template (double column, size 10). The limits of length for different type of papers are: 8 pages for long paper aiming for journal publication, 6 pages for full paper, and 4 pages for work-in-progress papers.


We welcome original and survey articles about the latest advances of technology. The f results can be state-of-the-art, requirements, fundamental theories, models, frameworks, algorithms, methodologies, platforms, protocols, prototypes, testbeds, field trials, case studies/stories, field experiences, standardization efforts, regulatory activities, education and training innovations, etc. The application areas include aeronautics and astronautics, agriculture, automotive, building, construction, energy, finance, healthcare, logistics, manufacturing, process industry, power, transportation, etc.
