Special Session

Session Chair: Forest Xi Zhu and Yang Yang.

Affiliation: University of Technology Sydney, Ultimo, NWS, 2007, Australia.

Scope of the Special Session

The proposed session abstract is "Recent works in microawve integrated circuits (ICs) design have progressed along two fronts- one organic and one novel. Organically, lower power and higher frequency performance come as a natural consequence of shrinking semiconductor feature size. This has been lasting for 40 years and known as Moore’s Law for complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology. It is clear that today’s CMOS-based ICs and manufacturing processes are increasingly unsustainable. On the other hand, the full potential of passive components, either lumped or distributed components, is still far from being reached. How to use novel electromagnetic (EM) structures to fulfil different design specifications has yet been very well presented from circuits & systems point of view. In addition, in the past 20 years, development of microwave ICs design is mainly driven by wireless communication, in which data transfer is the only application, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. However, the situation has been gradually changed. It has been proved that using wireless signals, target classification can be done by means of artificial intelligence. Thus, in this session, we would like to cover not only IC design related issues, but also the relevant applications that utilize the fundamental knowledge of microwave engineering."

Scope of the Special Session

Decision-making is a crucial, yet challenging mission in enterprise management. It is still made based on a reactive approach rather than on facts and proactive approaches. This is often due to unknown correlation between data and goals, conflicting goals and weak defined strategy. Enterprise success depends on fast and well-defined decisions taken by relevant policy makers and business actors in their specific area. Open business intelligent systems can be seen as a collection of decision support technologies and tools for enterprises to enable knowledge workers such as executives, managers, and analysts to make better and faster decisions. With the emergence of big data, it possible to explore new opportunities that will revolutionize business intelligence. These include data warehouse based decision support, Hadoop (development environment), sensor data, social media, machine learning and crowd sourcing. The aim of this workshop is provide a forum to review open business intelligent systems as an open innovation strategy and address their importance in revolutionizing knowledge processing in economics and business sustainability.

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Intelligent decision support systems
  • Intelligent transport systems
  • Crowdsourcing systems and application
  • Multi-agent systems and Data analytics
  • Crowdsourcing, collaboration, and problem solving with social media
  • Social media analytics
  • Machine learning and decision support systems
  • Opinion mining and sentiment analysis
  • Business models for innovative use of big data
  • Real-time decision making, forecasting, and fraud detection using big data
  • Modeling big data and related decision scenarios
  • Methodologies for innovations to handle large data sets
  • Big data analytics in business applications
  • Business visualization
  • Artificial Intelligence For Education
  • Machine learning in image processing
  • Expert systems in image processing
  • Intelligent agents and multi-agent systems in image processing
  • Reasoning and inference in image processing
  • Data Science in image processing
  • Image Processing for surveillance and Security Applications
  • Image processing for military applications
  • Image processing for industrial automation
  • Industrial applications of image processing
  • Applications of artificial intelligence in image processing

Scope of the Special Session

Over 4 billion people on the planet have no access to the Internet. This is contributing to unequal economic and social developments among the regions even within the same countries as the linkage between the country's broadband network penetration and the level of its GDP has been firmly established. The worldwide digital divide is being addressed by several large-scale ambitious projects led by, among others, Google and Facebook. These solutions mainly rely on dense networks of low-orbit satellites and other high altitude aerial platforms, or alternatively, the Internet may be distributed via long-range terrestrial networks. This special session seeks contributions addressing the diverse technical issues associated with provisioning of the Internet in remote geographical areas. Among common challenges appearing in these scenarios are low density of users, sharing a single gateway by all users, unstable and intermittent connections, low digital literacy of users, time evolution of the users' needs and expectations, local cultural and language barriers, availability of the electricity sources, the complexity, reliability and robustness of the proposed solutions, and enabling the remote maintenance and upgrading to name a few.

The original contributions are invited on the following and related topics:

  • Internet network architectures for remote access and backhauling
  • energy and cost efficient access point and base station designs
  • choosing the most appropriate protocols at all layers of the protocol stack
  • renewable energy sources for powering the digital equipment
  • web contents storage, distribution and localization including the contents caching and proxy services
  • specific privacy and security issues arising
  • strategies for modifying web applications and online services for the use in remote areas
  • system level analysis of the required network capacity, coverage, energy consumption, and capital and operational costs involved

Scope of the Special Session

Today's information technology (IT) has an important relationship with social sciences such as law, economics ,business administration and so on. Therefore, in order to further develop IT, we should know the latest studies in the social science fields. Also, with a view to solving problems in the fields of social sciences, researchers in these fields need to utilize the latest studies on IT. This special session will consist of researchers on economics, law and informatics and a lawyer. It is aimed to discuss from both sides of social sciences and IT.

Scope of the Special Session:

IoT in industrial domain has enabled faster time to market, improved productivity, business innovation and operational excellence. However industrial IoT (IIoT) is currently in its early stages. Many important questions such as impact of IIoT on existing industries, business model, workforce and value chain; technical barriers in implementation, role of policy makers, are yet to fully resolved. Reliable and secured communication is one of the biggest challenges surrounding the implementation of IIoT. There is a need to get all stakeholders from industry, academia and standardization bodies together to discuss the challenges of communication solutions for IoT; share experience, ideas with wider audience to ensure long term success of IIoT. The session is a step towards this bigger goal.
