Dear colleagues,

We have a competitive conference IIoTBDSC http://iiotbdsc.com/ due on July 1 2020. It will be held in Macao (Macau), Special Administration Region (SAR) of China on Sep 15-17 2020. There is a strong support from several ranked journals and reputable researchers. We'll get a few indexed status. Macao has only 45 COVID-19 infected cases up-to-date. See details below. Hopefully you can consider. Thanks.

Thanks and regards,


The First International Conference on Industrial IoT, Big Data and Supply Chain (IIoTBDSC) http://iiotbdsc.com/

Conference Date: September 15-17, 2020
Venue: Macao, Special Administration Region (SAR) of China
Submission: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iiotbdsc20200

We live in an interconnected world that different smart devices and people are connected together. The advancement of high-tech services and reliability, efficiency, speed and accuracy of services have become crucial and popular in many aspects. The key elements include Industrial Internet of Things, Big Data and Supply Chain.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a platform that allows a network of devices (sensors, smart meters, etc.) to communicate, analyze data and process information collaboratively in the service of individuals or organizations. Big Data (BD) has core values of volume, velocity, variety and veracity. Supply Chain requires the modern advancement and support from IIoT and Big Data, to make all services efficient, fast, accurate and reliable. These three can combine and work together to produce greater impacts and contributions as follows. First, the issues surrounding IIoT devices, their interconnectedness and services they may offer, including efficient, effective and secure analysis of the data IIoT produces. Often machine learning and other advanced techniques, models and tools, and issues of security and trust are related. Maturity of IoT technologies can grow and become part of our everyday lives. Second, BD can be jointly used with machine learning, AI, statistical and other advanced techniques, models and methods, which can create values for people and organizations adopting it. Forecasting, deep analysis and analytics can help identify weaknesses and make improvements based on different analysis. Third, suppliers can know the updates on their stocks and demands. Manufacturers and transport companies know the workloads, destination and resource distributions. Finally, customers can know the real-time updates of their goods delivery. Investors can better decisions on their goods, resources, sales and management. Supply chain can reach a greater sustainable ecosystem with the help of IIoT and Big Data.

This conference brings the experts, practitioners, scientists and decision-makers from academia and industry together. Our aim is to foster a strong, lively and well-connected international research community. We welcome innovative ideas, concepts, services, techniques, research outputs and business practices.
