The SI (Short Title: Intelligent Systems) will be linked to the 2nd International Conference on System-Integrated Intelligence (SysInt 2014, see www.sysint-conference.org). It will gather the top contributions presented at this event. Thus there is no open call for papers. Instead, interested authors are asked to submit their work to the conference directly. Selected authors will then receive an invitation to extend their contribution for inclusion in the SI. The timeline of this procedure (submission to conference and SI) is detailed below. Regular conference proceedings (short papers) will be published in Procedia Technology.
Authors should note that an invitation to submit their work to the Special Issue does not guarantee acceptance: The work submitted to the SI is expected to be an extended version, including additional data & findings, of the conference proceedings paper. Thus it will undergo a second review according to the regular standards of “Mechatronics”.
The conference itself provides a forum for academia and industry to present their latest research findings, innovations and practises in the field of system-integrated intelligence. It focuses on the integration of advanced functional capabilities into materials, systems, parts and products as an enabling technology for established application scenarios as well as new products and services. The perspective is highly interdisciplinary. The technological basis extends from new sensor technologies via material-integrated sensing and intelligence to aspects of communication and data evaluation. It includes the implementation of such approaches in autonomous decision-making, self-optimization and control in advanced engineering products and systems.
The conference further addresses wider fields of research, such as materials science and engineering, microsystems technology, mechatronic systems and production engineering as well as electronics and computer science. Specific application environments in the field of robotics, structural health monitoring, production and logistics will be highlighted in the programme through definition of dedicated symposia. Studies on implementation of system-integrated intelligence in additional scenarios beyond this scope are highly welcome.
Individual topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Methods and Algorithms: Agent-based systems, machine learning and
biologically-inspired methods for optimization and planning
- Self-Optimization and Autonomous Control: Design, reliability, modelling
- Sensorial Materials, material-integrated sensing and intelligence
- Advanced Applications of Autonomous Objetcts and Systems
- Human-Machine-Interaction: Visualization and transparency
- Gentelligent Production
- Cyber-Physical Systems in Production and Logistics
- Perceptive Robotics
- Structural Health Monitoring
