SEPTEMBER 13 – 14, 2016, BERLIN
Call for Papers:
Sensor Systems for Safety and Security
In most industrialized countries a high level of both safety and security has been reached. However, it becomes increasingly challenging to maintain or to increase this standard, given the great challenges and current threats we are facing. Upholding and restoring the necessary level of safety and security we are accustomed to requires the development and implementation of innovative technical solutions such as intelligent sensing systems and sensor networks. These hold the promise that hazards and threats can be detected early enough to avoid severe adverse impact, while still allowing people to travel and move freely as well as maintaining free trade and free circulation of goods. At the same time, smart factories and intelligent logistics, also referred
to as Industry 4.0, pose new challenges with respect to operational safety. Advanced sensors and sensor networks are required e.g. for the safe operation of autonomous mobile systems. To provide valid solutions to all these challenges, cross-disciplinary collaboration is required. To foster the communication and interaction among these different communities on this very topic, the conference series provides an interdisciplinary exchange platform for scientists, experts and actors from research, industry, public bodies and authorities. The conference provides direct insight into current security research activities and hot topics in this field.
