We are extremely pleased to present this Special Issue of the IFSA’s Sensors & Transducers journal on the 2009 IEEE Workshop on Intelligent Data Acquisition and Advanced Computing Systems: Technology and Applications (IDAACS), which has been held in Rende (Cosenza), Italy, 21-23 September, 2009. This is the 5th IDAACS workshop; the previous four were conducted in Foros (Crimea), Ukraine in 2001, Lviv, Ukraine in 2003, Sofia, Bulgaria in 2005 and Dortmund, Germany in 2007. IDAACS workshops were established and organized or co-organized by the Research Institute of the Intelligent Computer Systems, Ternopil National Economic University in Ukraine in cooperation with a local co-organizer. In this 5th edition of the workshop, the Department of Electronics, Informatics and Systems, University of Calabria participated as a co-organizer.


IDAACS workshops enjoy the opinion of a well-established bi-annual forum were authors establish scientific contacts, discuss and present high quality reports on the state-of-the-art uses and developments of Intelligent Data Acquisition and Advanced Computer Systems used in measurement, automation, and scientific research, in industry and in business. This field is experiencing rapid development, and in the last decade has resulted in more intelligent, sensitive, and accurate methods of data acquisition and data processing in manufacturing, environmental monitoring, medical monitoring systems and laboratory measurement equipment. Advanced methods have been developed to enhance the measurement of information for automation, in-process inspection, quality control, diagnostics, and other processes.


Several significant aspects prove the success of this family of Workshops. For instance, in the 1st IDAACS workshop held in 2001 there was a total of 70 participants from 18 countries, while during the last one, 142 papers were presented by authors from 29 countries in Europe, America, Asia and Australia. The workshops have an International Advisory Board that currently numbers 9 members from 7 countries, and an International Program Committee comprised of 88 members responsible for monitoring and ensuring the proper peer reviews of all the papers submitted to the workshop.


Since the first IDAACS, a number of selected best papers from each Workshop, following their reviewing, have been submitted for publication in international journals, which release special sections covering various research areas related with IDAACS. Obviously, both transducers and sensors are at the core of many works presented at the workshop, and therefore this Journal appears to be very appropriate to host a special issue where some of the most relevant IDAACS articles could be submitted. The papers selected for this special section are extended and improved versions, thus having significant changes to the equivalent ones presented at the workshop.


We would like to thank all the participants, organizers and members of various committees for their commitment and hard work to make IDAACS so successful. Special words of appreciation should go to Professor Anatoly Sachenko, of the Ternopil National Economic University, Ukraine, alma mater and the founder of IDAACS and the co-chairman of all of the workshops since the first one in Foros, 2001; and to Professor Domenico Grimaldi, of the University of Calabria, Italy, co-chairman of IDAACS 2009.
