Please note: The Automatica submission site is now
configured to receive papers for the special issue!!

Automatica Special Issue on Systems Biology

The control community has made significant contributions
to the field of systems biology, bringing rigorous tools
from dynamic systems, feedback, modeling and robustness
analysis. These contributions range from elegant theories
to explain principles of regulation, to more technological
developments that advance the state of treatments and
therapies. The field has reached a certain level of
maturity in both tools and applications that make the
timing opportune for a special issue capturing its
current state of development. Accordingly, this special
issue of Automatica will address the state of the art in
theories, tools, and applications of control to systems
biology. Among the topics to be covered in the special
issue are:
- Robustness in gene regulatory networks
- Information processing in signal transduction cascades
- Control architectures that shed light on biological
_ Multiple scales of length and time in biophysical
- Network inference and problems of model identification
- Synchronization phenomena in coupled oscillators at
  the cellular and subcellular level
- Control principles that led to novel approaches to
  drug target identification
- Novel approaches to biomarkers in complex biophysical
- Applications of control principles to specific disease
  problems (with clinical or experimental studies)
High quality papers on topics listed above, or related
ones, are invited for publication in the Special Issue.

The timetable is:
Submission Deadline: February 1, 2010
Tentative Publication Date: March 2011

The Special Issue will be prepared by a team consisting
of guest editor, Francis J. Doyle III, and Automatica
Editor Frank Allg÷wer.

Prospective authors should submit their contributions
by February 1, 2010 via the Automatica web-based paper
handling system, available at
Submissions can be in either full paper format or brief
paper format. They should be submitted as a Special
Issue Paper to Special Issue Corresponding Editor
Frank Doyle. The submission site is open starting October
