CASE 2015

The 11th annual IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (IEEE CASE 2015), sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), will be held from 24-28 August 2015, in Gothenburg, Sweden. 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 Automation for a Sustainable Future.

The topics include but are not limited to:
Foundations of Automation; Discrete Event Systems; Scheduling and Optimization; Manufacturing Automation; Process Automation; Logistics and Supply Chain Management; Sustainable Production; Life Sciences and Health Care; Power and Energy Systems; Smart Buildings; Automation in Meso, Micro and Nano-scale; Automation for Machine Tools; Mechatronics; Networked and Control Systems; Cloud Computing for Automation; Industrial Informatics; Big Data and Data Mining; and Emerging Topics in Automation.

Program:
The technical program of IEEE CASE 2015 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 IEEEXplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. IEEE CASE is an offspring of the journal IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (www.ieee.org/t-ase). The journal will publish a Special CASE Issue of top-rated papers.
