Call for Papers

The conference provides different tutorials, lectures and technical sections where the speakers can present and discuss their research results and innovations with their academic, scientific and industrial fellows. Keeping the tradition of the event, the papers submitted and approved and presented will be sent for publication in the IEEE Xplore platform for international publicity. In this edition, like the previous one, papers written in English, in Portuguese and in Spanish will be sent for publication. The IEEE Xplore is indexed in three different platforms: Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar. Also, the Technical Program Committee will select papers from presented ones at Induscon 2023 to invite to present an extended version for submission in IEEE Transactions on Industrial Applications. IEEE IAS policy requires that papers be presented at approved conferences to become eligible for review and possible publication in IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications or IEEE Industry Applications Magazine.
In addition, the Organizing Committee keeped the agreement for a special edition of Machines magazine (Qualis A4). Selected works will be invited to send an enlarged version with a discount on processing costs.

The IEEE/IAS International Conference on Industry Applications (INDUSCON) is an international conference held every two years in Brazil, brought by the South Brazil section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – IEEE and the local Chapter of IEEE Industry Applications Society.

The INDUSCON 2023 will take place in the city of São Bernardo do Campo at São Paulo state from 22th to 24th November, 2023, in hybrid format. This edition of the conference will be organized by Federal University of ABC and its main theme will be “Industry 4.0 challenges in the ESG (Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance) context”.

Consistent with this theme, we will have plenary keynotes from leading industrial and academic scientists, who will give forward looking visions as well as historical perspectives on our field. A broad array of scientific tracks and mini-symposiums will cover diverse topics of cutting-edge research and innovation in the diverse topics related to challenges for industry and technology in the ESG context.

The conference program will feature: tutorials, workshops, invited sessions, industry sessions, oral sessions, sessions for students and young professionals, sessions for entrepreneurs, and exhibits from vendors and universities.

Furthermore, we also welcome submission of Special Sessions & Mini-symposia Workshops & Tutorials that will complement the technical program by giving to all participants a view on the challenges arising today from academia and industry.

Tutorials involve formal presentation of the principles (e.g., theory, methodology, and tools) behind an established research area to enhance the knowledge and skills of the participants in that area.

We particularly welcome proposals that cover material or use presentation formats that are not found within the main conference that increase the interest for the event, enhance interaction and discussion amongst participants, and make useful connections to fields outside of industry.

Interested organizers of Tutorials should submit a brief proposal through the PaperCept Conference Management System. A proposal should include the title, list of instructors and their affiliations, an overview of the event (e.g., abstract, keywords, objectives, motivation, content, structure, and tentative program), and intended audience, as well as role and brief bio of each instructor. The proposal should also clarify the type and duration of the event (half-day or full-day).

The Program Committee reserves the right to reject tutorial proposals (based on content), or to cancel accepted proposals (due to low numbers of pre-registrations).
