Call For Papers
The aim of Computers in Industry is to publish original, high-quality, application-oriented research papers that:

• Show new trends in and options for the use of Information and Communication Technology in industry;
• Link or integrate different technology fields in the broad area of computer applications for industry;
• Link or integrate different application areas of ICT in industry.

General topics covered include the following areas:

• The unique application of ICT in business processes such as design, engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, physical distribution, production management and supply chain management. This is the main thrust of the journal. It includes research in integration of business process support, such as in enterprise modelling, ERP, EDM.
• The industrial use of ICT in knowledge intensive fields such as quality control, logistics, engineering data management, and product documentation will certainly be considered.
• Demonstration of enabling capabilities of new or existing technologies such as hard real time systems, knowledge engineering, applied fuzzy logic, collaborative work systems, and intelligence agents are also welcomed.
• Papers solely focusing on ICT or manufacturing processes may be considered out of scope.

A continuous quality policy, based on strict peer reviewing shall ensure that published articles are:

- Technologically outstanding and front-end
- Application-oriented with a generalised message
- Representative for research at an international level

Special Issues
Special Issue on Digital connectivity in Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Submission Date: 2019-09-30

The challenges facing logistics and supply chain management (SCM) today are bigger than ever before – it should be more efficient, effective, agile, resilient, and sustainable. The interconnection and interoperability of supply chains and logistics systems is one of the most sophisticated solutions that has been mostly studied over the last ten years by both academia and industry. Breakthrough concepts and paradigms have been proposed, e.g., smart or intelligent logistics, horizontal collaboration or cooperation, Physical Internet, and more recently hyperconnected logistics (in particular, a system is said to be hyperconnected when its components and actors are intensely interconnected on multiple layers, ultimately anytime, anywhere; interconnectivity layers including digital, physical, operational, transactional, legal and personal layers). Their potential and performance have already been demonstrated by some recent studies in the literature. Following the research stream, the aim of this special issue is to discuss the importance of digital connectivity in logistics interconnectivity and interoperability, in particular for the new paradigms and for sustainability. We are inviting high-quality and original contributions investigating the development and application of cutting-edge technologies and techniques of digital connectivity in logistics and SCM, from both researchers and practitioners. High quality papers providing conceptual model or case study are also welcome. Potential topics will include but not limited to: Digital platform architecture for large-scale multi-party supply chain and logistic information, decision and transaction; Digital design, planning, modeling and control of Physical Internet enabled hyperconnected supply chains and logistics systems; Tracking, traceability and trustability in logistics connectivity, exploiting technologies such as API, Blockchain, Internet-of-Things and Simple Links; Digital connectivity in hyperconnected city logistics and omnichannel supply chains; Digital twin, CPS, and control centers in logistics connectivity; Smart products, industrial wearables, and autonomous multi-agent based decision making and analytics in hyperconnected supply chains and logistics systems Digital connectivity for sustainable hyperconnected supply chains and logistics systems
