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CASE 2014 invites submissions of high-quality research papers describing original and unpublished work.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. Detailed instructions for the preparation and submission of papers can be found at www.case2014.org.


 IEEE RAS will sponsor two luncheons at CASE 2014

IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS)

The IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), one of the major international conferences in robotics and intelligent systems, is co-sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES), the Robotics Society of Japan (RSJ), the Society of Instruments and Control Engineers (SICE), and the New Technology Foundation (NTF).

The IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems annually brings together an international community of researchers, educators and practitioners to explore the frontier of science and technology in intelligent robots and systems, and discuss the latest advancements in this fast growing and exciting field. In addition to technical sessions and multi-media presentations, IROS conferences also hold panel discussions, workshops, tutorials and exhibits to enhance technical communications among the attendees.
