WCICA 2014 - Call for Papers Deadline

From 1 Dec, 2013 01:55 until 1 Dec, 2013 23:55
Categories: Deadlines

The 11th World Congress on Intelligent Control and Automation (WCICA 2014) will be held in Shenyang, China, from 27-30 June 2014. WCICA 2014 is technically sponsored by IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, IEEE Control System Society, National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Chinese Association of Automation, and the Chinese Association of Artificial Intelligence.

WCICA 2014 features plenary keynotes and plenary panel discussion sessions by the world leading researchers as well as awards to honor outstanding papers presented at this Congress. The awards include Best Paper on Theory, Best Paper on Applications, Best Student Paper, Best Poster Paper, Best Paper on Biomedical & Biosystem Related Areas, SUPCON Best Paper on Industrial Automation, and AIAG Best Paper on Supply Chain Related Topics.

Moreover, we are in the process to arrange post-conference publication of a selected group of accepted papers at WCICA 2014 in more than ten leading international journals and top Chinese journals as special issues, among them are IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics, IEEE Transactions on Robotics, IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part B, and Acta Automation Sinica.

It is our great pleasure to invite you to submit your original research papers to the Congress. WCICA 2014 also welcomes proposals for organizing Focused Theme Sessions on the conference topics and Tutorial Workshops on emerging topics. Submit your focused theme session proposals to Prof. Simon X. Yang ( syang@uoguelph.ca) of the University of Guelph before 1 December 2013. Please refer to the congress website for details.
