To provide an opportunity for those who could not meet the original deadline on the submission of papers to the 47th International Conference on Computers & Industrial Engineering (47th ICC&IE or CIE 47 for short) I am pleased to announce the extension of this deadline to May 15, 2017. CIE 47 will be held in Lisbon, Portugal during the period October 11-13, 2017. It is sponsored 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.
You are probably aware that the impact factor of Computers & Industrial Engineering (CAIE) 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). A special issue of CAIE will include enhanced versions of a selected number of papers published in the conference proceedings, after rigorous editing through the online Elsevier Editorial System (EES).
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. I look forward to your participation in this conference as you did in previous ones, 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.
