Special Issue "Selected Papers from the 9th World Congress on Industrial Process Tomography"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2019
Industrial Process Tomography (IPT) is a set of multi-dimensional sensor technologies that aim to provide unparalleled internal information of industrial processes used in many business sectors. The World Congress on Industrial Process Tomography (WCIPT) is the flagship conference of the International Society for Industrial Process Tomography (ISIPT. www.isipt.org), which is held every two years. After successful previous events: UK (1999), Germany (2001), Canada (2003), Japan (2005), Norway (2007), China (2010), Poland (2013), and Brazil (2016), this year, WCIPT-2018 will take place in Bath, UK, under the chairmanship of Prof. Manuchehr Soleimani.
This congress focuses on the state-of-the-art of industrial process tomography and its applications in various fields:
- New Generation Systems for Wider Support of Industrial Applications:
- Multi-modal and multi-spectral methods addressing complex process distributions.
- Multi-dimensional systems that radically extend length and/or temporal scales.
- Smart tomographic systems that provide direct application data, or process control.
- Human-machine interaction in IPT systems.
- Machine learning from IPT data.
- New Developments in Foundational System Elements for Enhanced Process Interaction:
- Excitation and response sensing methods and topologies for all modes: e.g. acoustic, electrical, hard radiation, magnetic resonance, and positron-emission.
- Data acquisition architectures to enhance system performance for focussed IPT products.
- Integrated system design and packaging for special application needs such as intrinsic safety.
- Raw data processing such as direct inversion and high-speed reconstruction methods.
- Interpretation data processing yielding industry relevant information.
- Pioneering Industrial Case Studies
- Holistic study of industrial application for pilot investigation.
- Holistic study of industrial application for online control.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
