DoCEIS 2020, 11th Advanced Doctoral Conference on Computing, Electrical and Industrial Systems - Lisbon, Portugal

Wednesday, May 6, 2020

The Advanced Doctoral Conference on Computing, Electrical and Industrial Systems is celebrating its 11th edition (DoCEIS 2020) with a focus on Technological Innovation for Life Improvement.

Nowadays, life improvement has become a trending topic across different areas due to technological advancements that focus on human wellbeing. Different scientific areas, such as electronics, telecommunications, computing and energy, are innovating and changing their paradigm to promote a digital world with tools and concepts such as Virtual and Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data, Internet of Things, and Collaborative Networks, to provide a better and sustainable future with high quality of life.

The impacts of these technological developments enhance health, environment, transportation and communication systems across the globe, through new products and services. Thus, the transition of these concepts to real-world solutions has a huge potential to face existing challenges, and increase knowledge, wellbeing, quality of life and collaboration among companies, organizations, people, and systems.

Key activities of the conference include:
- Presentation of research results by Ph.D. students (co-authored by their supervisors)
- Tutorials by invited experts on scientific, methodological, or soft skills topics
- Presentation and discussion of the base ideas of the thesIs plans
- Discussion of the scientific and technical challenges in the Electrical and Computer Engineering areas
Sharing of experiences among Ph.D. students from different geographical regions
- Forum on practical aspects (e.g. publications, job markets, careers, etc.)
- Creation of collaboration (social) networks

Prospective authors of research papers are invited to submit their manuscripts reporting original work, in any of the scientific areas of the conference. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques, and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Nevertheless, each paper must make a clear link to the main theme of the conference, including a section describing that link.

Following the successful previous editions, proceedings are expected to be published by Springer, IFIP AICT series (indexed in Web of Science, SCOPUS and DBLP). Best papers will be considered for possible inclusion in a special journal issue.

There will also be poster discussion sessions focusing on Ph.D. thesis plans. These sessions are designed to provide early feedback to Ph.D. candidates in the initial phase of their studies. For Ph.D. thesis recently finished (during the last year), a special type of submissions is invited.

The scope of the conference will cover, but will not be limited to, the following topics:  Computational and Perceptional Systems, Energy, Enterprise Collaborative Networks, Electronics, Signal Processing, Embedded Intelligence, Smart biotechnology

, Robotics and Integrated Manufacturing, Digital transformation, Telecommunications, Biomedical Engineering, Cyber-Physical Systems.
