Along with the fast development of computer technologies, e.g., ubiquitous computing, cloud computing and cyber-physical system, all kinds of networks (e.g., control network, communication network, sensor network, body area network, social network, opportunistic network, cloud-based network, etc.) appeared and were applied in large-scale factories, including a lot of traditional and new industries, e.g., textile industry, coal industry, mining industry, steel industry, machinery industry, petrochemical industry, and biomedical industry, etc. Assisted by various industrial networks, automation in industry can reduce cost greatly because it takes advantage of control systems and information technologies to optimize productivity in the production of goods and delivery of services. However, the industrial environment is dynamic and harsh usually, including extreme temperature, humidity, electromagnetic interference and vibration, which proposed specific requirements to intelligent industrial systems under certain circumstances. All these highlight the criticality of the design, analysis and implementation of intelligent industrial systems.

Dr. Trung Q. Duong is a Reader at Queen’s University Belfast, U.K. His current research interests include IoT (applied to disaster management, agriculture, hydrometeorological hazards, smart grid) 5G networks (small-cell networks, ultra-dense networks, HetNets, physical layer security, massive MIMO, cell-free massive MIMO, caching, energy-harvesting), and nanoscale, molecular communications networks. He has authored or co-authored over 110 IEEE Journals. He is currently serving as an Editor for IEEE Trans on Wireless Communications, IEEE Trans on Communications, IET Communications and a Lead Senior Editor for IEEE Communications Letters. He has served as the Guest Editor for more than 22 times on ISI-index journals including the IEEE Journal in Selected Areas on Communications 2015, IET Communications 2014, 2016, 2017, IEEE Communications Magazine 2014 and 2015, IEEE Access 2016, 2017, 2018, IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine 2015, EURASIP JWCN, EURASIP JASP. He was an Editor of Electronics Letters, Emerging Telecommunications Technologies, IEEE Communications Letters. He has served as a chair for more than 20 IEEE conferences/workshops including the IEEE GLOBECOM 2016 Symposium Chair. Dr. Duong was awarded the Best Paper Award at the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC-Spring) in 2013, the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) 2014, the IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM) 2016, IEEE Digital Signal Processing (DSP) 2017. He is a recipient of prestigious Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship from 2016 to 2021 and has won the prestigious Newton Prize 2017.
Dr. Le Nguyen Bao is the Vice Provost and Head of the Technology & Science division as well as the R&D Center of Duy Tan University (DTU), which is widely considered to be the No. 1 private university in Vietnam. He earned his doctorate degree in Computer Science also from DTU, specializing in the field of facial recognition. His research interest is in network security policy, data warehousing, and 3D animation design. He helped initiate the CDIO (Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate) framework for engineering education first time in Central Vietnam back in 2010. His efforts ultimately led to the championship of Vietnamese students at the CDIO Academy, organized at Harvard and MIT in 2013. In 2017, he and his team again won the prestigious award for Vietnamese No. 1 Talents in Information Technology (IT) & Entrepreneurship for a 3D human-anatomy simulation. Under his leadership, Duy Tan University is aiming to become the top university for IT in Vietnam.
