IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering
Authors of an IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE) regular paper (not evolved papers, survey papers, or communication items) are given the opportunity to present their paper at one upcoming conference of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS). A paper is eligible to be presented at one of the following conferences provided the paper is transferred during the associated time window, which closes at least a month before the Steering Committee meeting of the conference:
- ICRA 2024: March 1, 2023 to November 30, 2023
- IROS 2024: August 1, 2023 to April 30, 2024
- CASE 2024: August 1, 2023 to April 30, 2024
The paper must be transferred within 270 days of acceptance. Authors may not request any acceleration or delay of the review process based on these time windows.
The invitation to present at a conference is in the author's workspace in PaperCept after acceptance of the paper. Eligible papers may only be presented at one conference.
Automation plays an increasingly important role in the global economy and in our daily lives. Automation is changing manufacturing as well as healthcare, security, and energy. The IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE) publishes new abstractions, algorithms, theory, methodologies, models, systems, and case studies that can be applied across industries to significantly advance efficiency, quality, productivity, and reliability for society.
T-ASE is published quarterly since July 2004. T-ASE and its sibling publication, the IEEE Transactions on Robotics (T-RO) are published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and edited by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.
As of 2020, the T-ASE Impact Factor is 4.938. The T-ASE acceptance rate is around 16%. The average time from paper submission to first decision is under 3 months and the average time from submission to publication online is under 9 months. Submissions have grown steadily from under 400 in 2011 to over 1200 in 2019.

Articles and Samples from T-ASE
The new Transactions defines Automation very broadly, including applications such as DNA chip and biological sample handling, agriculture, security, demining, healthcare, transportation, as well as the myriad of applications related to manufacturing.
T-ASE is theoretical yet has a wide readership among practitioners in industry. T-ASE publishes foundational research on Automation: scientific methods and technologies that improve efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability, a variety of results related to methods, machines, and systems operating in structured environments over extended periods and the explicit structuring of environments.
T-ASE dispels the conventional wisdom that Automation is limited to only manufacturing. For example, we welcome papers on DNA or pharmaceutical testing; automation methods and intelligent systems for hospitals and health delivery; mobile surveillance robots and systems that operate over extended periods for security; real-time inspection algorithms using computer vision; intelligent and flexible manufacturing, service, and supply chain coordination; CAD, assembly, new grippers, fixtures, and a variety of subjects about putting intelligent machines and systems into practice.
