4) Title: Informatics in Control Theory and its Applications
Organizer-Chairman: Professor Vladimír Vašek
Faculty of Applied Informatics, Tomas Baťa University in Zlín, Nad Stráněmi 4511, 76005 Zlín, Czech Republic

In system, control, or process engineering, devices like PLC, IPC, microcontroller kits or intelligent computer boards with advanced operating systems constitute an integral part of manufacturing and industrial processes. Advances in the theory of informatics have not been fully implemented in process control design until recently. However, many complex technological processes such as nonlinear, delayed, non-minimum phase ones, multidimensional or hybrid ones are hardly controllable by conventional control methods. Therefore, advanced modern control strategies have been investigated to deal with those problems. These methodologies, however, requires the utilization of elements of optimization or artificial intelligence. From this perspective, both, theoretical and application, contributions combining the informatics and system (control) issues are useful and desirable and highly welcome for the special session.

5) Title: Supply Chain Management for Digital Age
Organizer-Chairman: Professor Satya Shah
Professor of Supply Chain and Engineering Management Director and Head of Global Logistics, Supply Chain and Sustainability Management, University of Bolton UK, United Kingdom

The term Industry 4.0 is the new buzz word that promises towards the new industrial revolution – one that marries advanced manufacturing techniques with the internet of things (IoT) to create a digital manufacturing enterprise that is not only interconnected, but communicates, analyzes, and uses information to further drive intelligent action back into the physical world. Such developments aims to bring profound impacts and changes to the overall aspects of supply chain management. Hence, supply chain management (SCM) in the new era of Industry 4.0 could well be referred as the SCM the 4.0 Way. In this aspect, the digital and autonomous linkages within and between companies become a focal point of supply chain management. Through this special session at CSCC 2018 conference, we aim to bring the wider research community towards presenting the innovation and application of these technological advances on the Supply Chain of the digital revolution. Some of the key focus areas where we expect the papers to have coverage will be:

- Effects of digitization and automation on efficiency, effectiveness, and flexibility in supply chains
- Innovative smart services for supply chain management
- Innovative supply chain models based on big data analytics
- Internet of things (IoT) and its impact on SCM
- Impacts of digitization on SC decision making, leadership practices, and management principles
- Impacts of autonomous transportation technologies on SCM
- Advanced tracking and tracing technologies and applications in the supply chain context
- Concepts of data security for supply chain applications
- Maturity models for digital transformation of SCM
- Analysis of diffusion and digital transformation in supply chains
- Effects of product and service virtualization on SCM
