Web site: http://wfcs2018.ieiit.cnr.it
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WFCS is the largest IEEE conference especially dedicated to industrial
communication systems and technologies. The aim of the WFCS series is to
provide a forum for researchers, developers and practitioners to review
and discuss most recent trends in the area and share innovative research
directions.

FOCUS

- Real-time in Industrial Communication Systems and Technologies:
wired and wireless industrial networks (fieldbus networks; Industrial
Ethernet networks; wireless (industrial) networks; Industrial Wireless
Sensor Networks (IWSNs); hybrid wired/wireless industrial networks;
Time Sensitive Networks (TSN); Time Triggered (TT) systems and protocols);
modeling and specification techniques; hard and soft real-time message
scheduling; multimedia support for industrial and process automation;
real-time performance and analysis of network protocols and components;
support for mobility; configuration tools and network management.

- Cyber-Physical Systems (Communication meets Control):
control/communication interaction; networked control systems; Wireless
Sensor Actuator Networks (WSANs); cooperative industrial systems;
multi-agent industrial systems; time synchronization; localization;
industry applications and case studies.

- Networked Embedded Systems:
design and validation of embedded systems; real-time operating systems;
multi/many-core systems; middleware design and implementation; real-time
performance and analysis; domain-specific design and verification languages;
formal methods for verification and certification; model-driven engineering.

- Dependability and Security of Industrial Networks:
fault-tolerance; safety and certification; cyber-security; risk analysis
and assessment; protection and countermeasures; industrial firewalls and
intrusion detection systems (IDSs); formal description techniques and
verification of industrial protocol and applications.

- Integration in Industrial Systems:
vertical and life-cycle aspects; data-flow management; plug-and-work and
self-mechanisms; interoperability; mixed criticality systems; distributed
application platforms; Internet and intranet access; Internetworking;
web-based setup; configuration and maintenance; cell networks; high-performance
networks, telecommunication networks for geographically distributed industrial
applications.

- Communication Technologies for Industry 4.0:
self-adaption and self-organization for smart factories; self-configurable
networks; new paradigms for agile network operations; Software Defined
Networking (SDN); Network Function Virtualization (NFV); artificial intelligence
and machine (deep) learning; architectures for big data management; industrial
cloud computing; Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)/Industrial Internet of
Services (IIoS); Service-Oriented Architectures (SoA); support for m2m and
human-machine interaction; reports from experimental testbeds and deployment.

- Green Communication in Industry:
energy-efficient, resource-saving and environment-friendly networking;
energy-saving and energy-harvesting techniques; green design.

- Recent advances in research domains with similar communication requirements:
smart grid communications; smart home and building automation networks;
automotive and train-control networks; automated guided vehicles (AGV) and
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSs); Wireless Health Care (WHC).
