Details of Areas for Call for Paper

I. Advances in Electron Devices

Technological and scientific progress in the field of Micro-Nanoelectronics has been a key driver for fascinating integration and miniaturization of electronic gadgets that we see around. Till the first decade of this century, things were mostly driven by technological breakthroughs in Silicon and up to certain extent SiGe and GaAs technologies. However, since the beginning of this decade, with the discovery of newer materials like Graphene, Transition Metal Dichalcogenides or similar 2D materials and Gallium Nitride, the future of electronics appears to be different. Keeping these trends in mind, we solicit brief research papers in the following topics related recent advancement in following areas related to electron device in general.

  • Nano Device Technology
  • Power Devices
  • Process and Manufacturing Technology
  • Circuit and Device Interaction
  • Characterization, Reliability and Yield
  • Compound Semiconductor and High Speed Devices
  • Memory Technology
  • Modeling and Simulation
  • Optoelectronics, Displays, and Imagers
  • Sensors, MEMs, and Biomems

II. Cyber-Physical Systems / Internet of Things

Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things technologies promise to transform our societies in the near future, just like the internet did a couple of decades back. The potential of being able to connect any “thing” to the internet, will open up new degrees of freedom to optimize and engineer large scale systems. The science of cyber-physical systems will enable developing systematic approaches to engineer such large scale systems using advances in modeling, simulation, analysis and control in conjunction with IoT based connectivity solutions, software systems and sensing & actuation technologies. This special track in the IEEE Connect conference will focus on bringing together researchers and experts from academia and industry to share their recent research results and learnings in this domain and will hopefully further inspire new work in this area. We have put together an technical committee consisting of experts from academia and industry to curate the contributions and set up an exciting and enriching technical program in this track. We solicit brief research papers in the following topics related to the foundations and applications of CPS/IoT.

  • Multi-domain modeling and simulation
  • Hybrid and switching Control
  • Hardware in the loop systems
  • Human in the loop systems
  • IoT Software Systems
  • Edge computing and analytics
  • CPS Security
  • Formal techniques for CPS
  • Real-time IoT systems
  • CPS/IoT Applications Case Studies
  • CPS/IoT Testbeds, Novel IoT Devices

III. Computer Science and Big Data

Digital world is the flavour of present technological season. Digital technologies have permeated deeply into all aspects of our private and public life, which in fact is likely to increase in near future. This has created and will continue to create a great amount of digital data. To process large and complex data sets, traditional data processing applications and algorithms are not adequate. On the other hand approach to analyze big data and the efficiency involved has huge impact on the digital world and user experience. The major challenges faced includes visualization, searching data, capturing data, data creation, analyzing data, storing data, sharing data, transferring data and information privacy. This growth in amount of data with growing use of digital technologies is driving a strong need for scalable, parallel and online algorithms as well as machine learning models that can handle the volume of data involved or generated. At the same time there is also a need to create digital infrastructure to store and analyse it automatically. Keeping this background in mind, we solicit brief research papers in the following topics related to the Big Data and Computer Science.

  • Computer Architecture
  • Operating systems
  • Embedded systems
  • Cloud computing
  • Big Data
  • Machine Learning
  • Distributed and Parallel Computing
  • Software Engineering
  • Security/Cryptography
