Invitation to submit papers to Special issue of the open access journal: Processes.

Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce a Special Issue of the journal “Processes” (Impact Factor 2018: 1.963) dedicated to recent advances in the broad field of Advanced Process Monitoring for Industry 4.0, including all the activities related to fault detection, diagnosis and prognosis.

Papers on data-driven, model-based and hybrid monitoring approaches for continuous, batch and discrete processes are welcomed, especially when addressing emerging challenges of the new industrial technology landscape, such as, but not limited to:

•    High-dimensional process monitoring;
•    Dealing with heterogeneous data sources;
•    Image-based process monitoring;
•    Monitoring 3D objects (e.g., from additive manufacturing);
•    Artificial Intelligence for process monitoring;
•    Fault diagnosis and troubleshooting;
•    Fault prognosis and predictive maintenance;
•    Monitoring process health and equipment health;
•    Integration of Statistical Process Control and Engineering Process Control;
•    Monitoring multistage and/or distributed processes;
•    Monitoring the supply chain;
•    Handling stationary and non-stationary dynamics;
•    Monitoring for cybersecurity;
•    Applications in health.

The deadline for manuscripts submission is 20 February 2020.
