I am pleased to announce the 47th International Conference on Computers & Industrial Engineering (47th ICC&IE or CIE 47 for short) to be held in Lisbon, Portugal during October 11-13, 2017. It is organized by the journal “Computers & Industrial Engineering” and hosted by University Nova of Lisbon. Attached please find the Call for Papers, and you may also access the web site of the conference ( http://www.cie47.com) for more information on keynote speakers, submissions and registration, as well as nice views of the conference venue and the city of Lisbon. Please note the deadline on submission of papers/abstracts of April 20, 2017 and on early bird registration of June 30,2017.
You are probably aware that the impact factor of Computers & Industrial Engineering has reached 2.086 for the year 2015. We are now proud to convey to you our score on a new metric called CiteScore, which is the citation count in one year divided by documents published during the previous 3 years. The CAIE 2015 CiteScore is 3.13 (95th percentile among 262 engineering journals). We are indebted to your contributions to the journal for its continuous rise in impact and prestige.
The conference proceedings are registered under ISSN 2164-8670 for the CD-ROM version and ISSN 2164-8689 for the online version. They are also indexed in SCOPUS and COMPENDEX. A special issue of the journal Computers & Industrial Engineering will include enhanced versions of a selected number of papers in the proceedings. I look forward to your participation, and I would appreciate it if you circulated this announcement around your colleagues.
I am glad to announce the creation of a new web site sponsored by the Editorial Office of Computers & Industrial Engineering (https://www.computers-and-ie.org/). It contains links to past and future conferences, their web sites, proceedings and some photos. It also includes announcements and news.
I would like to alert you of a claim by a group called World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology (WASET), which announced an upcoming conference with the name, “ICCIE 2017: 19th International Conference on Computers and Industrial Engineering”. Not only have they used our name but they also stated that “ICCIE 2017 has teamed up with the Special Journal Issue on Computers and Industrial Engineering.” We assert that NO special issue of our journal will be devoted to papers from this conference or any other conference organized by WASET.
