2013 IEEE Workshop on Environmental, Energy and Structural Monitoring Systems

The 2013 IEEE Workshop on Environmental, Energy and Structural Monitoring Systems will be held at the University of Trento (Trento, Italy), from September 11 till September 12, 2013 and it will take place in the Polo Scientifico e Tecnologico "Fabio Ferrari", via Sommarive, 5 - Trento.

Workshop aims

The wide and increasing needs for flexible solutions for environmental, energy, and structural monitoring systems point out the importance of using design methodologies and implementation technologies with strong adaptation and evolution abilities. This workshop aims to present and discuss the various technological, methodological and application aspects of complex monitoring systems in the three aforementioned application areas, especially concerning, but not limited to, advanced sensors, signal/image processing techniques, patter recognition approaches, systems and applications.
Department, researchers and students in industry are encouraged to contribute presentations on either completed research or “work-in-progress” research.


The program is structured in four sessions:

  • Energy Monitoring
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Structural Monitoring and Civil Engineering Applications
  • Information and Communication Technologies for Distributed Monitoring Systems

A special session on Natural Hazard Monitoring and Control Systems is also included.

Call for papers

Papers are solicited on all aspects of environmental, energy and structural monitoring systems and the related applications, from the point of view of both theory and practice, including the following topics: sensors and instrumentation for monitoring systems, signal and image processing for monitoring systems, intelligent monitoring systems, software infrastructure for monitoring systems, wide-area monitoring, communications in monitoring systems, security and privacy in monitoring systems, fault tolerance, dependability and resilience in monitoring systems, quality of service in monitoring systems, safety in monitoring systems, standards for monitoring systems, management and operation of monitoring systems, engineering education in monitoring systems, environmental monitoring, water monitoring systems, air monitoring systems, pollution monitoring, agricultural and forest monitoring, energy and electrical power systems monitoring, energy distribution monitoring, oil/gas pipeline monitoring, structural monitoring, critical infrastructures monitoring, transportation systems monitoring, monitoring for sustainable environments, ethic issues in environmental and energy monitoring.

The program also includes a special session on Natural Hazard Monitoring and Control Systems which aims to provide a forum to showcase state-of-the-art research activities in the design and implementation of complex and edge-technology systems for natural hazards and disaster monitoring and control.

The submission of extended abstracts or draft papers is due by June 7, 2013; the acceptance or the rejection will be emailed by July 7, 2013. The final manuscript submission and registration is due by August 4, 2013.
