CASE 2014

The 10th annual IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (IEEE CASE 2014), sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), will be held from 18-22 August 2014, in Taipei, Taiwan. IEEE CASE represents the flagship automation conference of the IEEE RAS and constitutes the primary forum for cross-industry and multidisciplinary research in automation. Its goal is to provide a broad coverage and dissemination of foundational research in automation among researchers, academics, and practitioners.

The conference theme is "Frontiers of Intelligent Automation Science and Technology for Better Quality of Life". IEEE CASE is an offspring of the IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (www.ieee.org/t-ase), represents the flagship automation conference of the IEEE RAS, and constitutes the primary forum for cross-industry and multidisciplinary research in automation. Its goal is to provide a broad coverage and dissemination of foundational research in automation among researchers, academics, and practitioners.

Program:
The technical program of IEEE CASE 2014 will consist of tutorials/workshops, keynote/plenary speeches, automation forums, and oral/poster presentations. Papers describing original work on abstractions, algorithms, theories, methodologies, and case studies are invited. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings, and submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Topics:
CASE 2014 invites submissions of high-quality research papers describing original and unpublished work. The topics include but are not limited to: Foundations of Automation; Agriculture; Life Science and Health Care; Automation in Meso, Micro, and Nano-scale; Manufacturing Automation; Discrete Event Systems; Scheduling and Optimization; Mechatronics; Industrial Informatics; Sustainable Production; Logistics and Supply Chain Management; Networked and Control Systems; Power and Energy Systems; Smart Buildings; Big Data and Data Mining; Cloud Computing for Manufacturing Automation; Automation for Machine Tools; and Emerging Topics in Automation.
