Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.


Special session proposals are accepted until:

December 26, 2018


If you wish to propose a new Special Session please kindly fill out and submit this Expression of Interest form.

Scope

A major consideration in designing an efficient and non-pollution manufacturing system is its flexible manufacturing availability. Such manufacturing system we named it “Green Manufacturing System”. When a machine or any other hardware component of the system fails, the system reconfiguration is often less than perfect. It is shown that, if these imperfections constitute even a very small percent of all possible system faults, the availability of the system may be considerably reduced. A state is operational when its performance is better than a threshold value. In order to calculate the availability of a manufacturing system, its states (each corresponding to an acceptable system level) are determined. A system level is acceptable when its production capacity is satisfied. As a manufacturing system includes a large number of components with failure/repair processes, the system-level discrete event model becomes computationally intractable. New models, nature inspired models, are needed in order to deal with this complex and stringent issue. Our workshop challenges both authors and auditors to reveal the development stage of the social networks and to anticipate theirs future evolution in respect to technological and environmental changes. We deal with a non-classic workshop but an open minded and open discussion, and free debate one.

Scope

The special session aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, software developers, and others interested in the latest advances of energy efficient clouds. Special focus will be on novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying and running software at the different layers of the Cloud computing stack. We call on to researchers and professionals to present their latest work on addressing such related challenges and to share their experiences and best practices in the deployment of such systems. We particularly welcome papers on relevant software engineering approaches and practical guidance on enterprise-wide software deployment in the cloud environment, together with real-world case studies, as well as the new generation of Utility Computing, including edge computing.

Scope

Innovations and entrepreneurship are increasing in their significance in shaping our societies worldwide. Managing and leveraging complexities, creativity and innovation call for vision, proactiveness and effective tools across all stakeholder groups. In this session innovation management scholars and practitioners are invited to share their professional insights and inspiring cases that would contribute to developing an understanding of the innovation and entrepreneurship focused leadership in schools, universities, science parks, corporate world, investor, entrepreneur and startup communities.
