This booklet constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the fifth IFIP WG 5.5/SOCOLNET Doctoral convention on Computing, electric and business structures, DoCEIS 2014, held in Costa de Caparica, Portugal, in April 2014. The sixty eight revised complete papers have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from a variety of submissions. They disguise a large spectrum of subject matters starting from collaborative firm networks to microelectronics. The papers are prepared within the following topical sections: collaborative networks; computational platforms; self-organizing production platforms; tracking and supervision platforms; advances in production; human-computer interfaces; robotics and mechatronics, Petri nets; multi-energy structures; tracking and regulate in strength; modelling and simulation in strength; optimization matters in strength; operation matters in strength; energy conversion; telecommunications; electronics: layout; electronics: RF functions; and electronics: devices.
