CALL FOR PAPERS
Nowadays we are assisting to the fourth industrial revolution. This was the main theme of the World Economy Forum 2016 (WeF), the worldwide foundation organizes each year in Davos a symposium where the main political and economic leaders in the World discuss about the emerging trends of economy, technology, environment and health. The title of the last event was “Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution”, the summit launched an alarm: until 2020 at least 5 million of work positions will be lost in the world because they will be substituted by robots and artificial intelligence. The report “The Future of Jobs” published by the WeF, highlights that we are assisting to the fourth industrial revolution that implies evolutions and developments in fields, such as artificial intelligence, machine-learning, robotic, nanotechnologies 3D Printer, genetics and biotechnologies. This revolution will determine a wide disruption not only of field of business models but also in the job market as highlighted by the responsible of the human resources of 350 among the most important factories in world representing 13 millions of employers located in 15 of the most important Countries in the world such as China, India, France, Germany, UK and USA. According to the same analysis the emerging job sectors of the fourth revolution that are (i) Energy, (ii) Financial Services, (iii) Health, (iv) ICT, (v) Media & Entertainment, and (vi) Logistic. All these changes are possible also thank to the recent developments in the field of metrology. As a matter of fact, monitoring remote physical phenomena and try to control them, it is possible thank to the developments of new sensors, acquisition techniques, improve data acquisition systems, and so on.
MetroInd4.0&IoT aims to discuss the contributions both of the metrology for the development of Industry 4.0 and IoT and the new opportunities offered by Industry 4.0 and IoT for the development of new measurement methods and apparatus. MetroInd4.0&IoT aims to gather people who work in developing instrumentation and measurement methods for Industry 4.0 and IoT. Attention is paid, but not limited to, new technology for metrology-assisted production in Industry 4.0 and IoT, Industry 4.0 and IoT component measurement, sensors and associated signal conditioning for Industry 4.0 and IoT, and calibration methods for electronic test and measurement for Industry 4.0 and IoT.
Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the Workshop and the proceedings will be submitted for indexing in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Special Session Proposal Deadline
When I come to reflect on the subject, in no country have I received such honors or been so esteemed as in Italy, and nothing contributes more to a man's fame than to have written Italian operas, and especially for Naples.
Here we are at last. The Italian proverb says "See Naples and die" but I say, see Naples and live; for there seems a great deal worth living for.
I have a concept of Naples that is not so much of a city, per se, but rather an ingredient of the human spirit that I detect in everyone, Neapolitan or not. The idea that 'Neapolitanism' and mass ignorance are somehow indissolubly linked is one that I am prepared to fight with all the strength I have.
Naples is the flower of paradise. The last adventure of my life.
Special sessions have the main aim of creating a mini-workshop on a specific topic, where researchers working on the same argument can make knowledge, familiarize, exchange ideas, create cooperation.
