Welcome to the 6th International Conference on Enterprise Systems. Enterprise Systems (ES), also referred to as Enterprise Information Systems, has become increasingly popular over the last 20 years because it integrates and extends business processes across the boundaries of business functions and corporate walls, as well as country border lines. The International Conference on Enterprise Systems (ES) has been held every year since 2013. The sixth in the series will be held at St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus, 8-9 October, 2018. The conference is hosted by the Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus.
This conference series is focusing on both the technical and application aspects of enterprise systems, the complex and cross-disciplinary problems of enterprise integration, and the new technological frontiers such as Industrial Integration, Industrial Information Integration, and Industry 4.0. The objectives of the conference are to provide high quality research and professional interactions for the advancement of science and technology. The main features of the conference include Keynote Speeches, Regular and Special Sessions. It has been highlighted by the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society: http://ieeesmc.org/ .
We welcome original and survey articles about the latest advances of technology. The final 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.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Enterprise Systems for Industry 4.0 Cyber Physical Systems for Industry 4.0 Internet of Things for Industry 4.0 Big Data for Industry 4.0 Security and Privacy Protection for Industry 4.0 System Engineering and Human Factors for Industry 4.0 IoT-enabled Smart Manufacturing
A full list of subtopics for each one of the above topics can be found on the conference web site.
The submitted paper should adhere to the double-blind review policy. All papers will be double-blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance, originality, significance, and clarity. All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Papers that do not comply with the Submission Guidelines will be rejected without review.
Paper types: Full papers present final result. They must not exceed 8 pages. Short papers can contain preliminary results. They must not exceed 6 pages. Work-in-progress papers to present valuable and latest progresses of ongoing projects: 4 pages.
Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Xplore Database which is indexed by EI. Furthermore, selected papers will be invited for a special issue by the Journal of Industrial Integration and Management, World Scientific, with theme "Next-Generation Enterprise Systems in the Industrial Integration Era". More information is available on the conference web site.
