CALL FOR PAPERS - IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics


Special Section on: “Industrial Control”



This special section will focus on the critical issues in industrial control. At

the tool and process level, there are new methods and capabilities required to

effectively use process and product measurements to impart control.

Industrial control addresses the use of sensors, metrology, and algorithms to

monitor equipment, processes and products to provide actionable

information for maintenance and control. The successful application of

industrial control draws from the domain expertise of multiple disciplines

that are typically responsible for delivering separate elements of the

complete solution such as IT/Factory Automation, Process Technology,

Control Engineering, Yield Management, Metrology, etc.

Topics of Special Interest include but are not limited to

Process Control

Equipment Control

Intelligent Control

Supervisory Control

Industrial Control Implementation

Discrete and Continuous Automation System

Equipment and Process Monitoring

Fault Detection and Classification

Process Modelling and Optimization

Submissions to this Special Section must represent original material that

have been neither submitted to, nor published in, any other journal. Extended

versions of papers previously published in conference proceedings, digests

or preprints may be eligible for consideration, provided that the authors

inform the Special Guest Editors at the time of submission.

All contributions must focus on industrial control.


Manuscript preparation and submission: Follow the guidelines in

“Information for Authors” in

Submit using Manuscript Central only

Paper submission deadline: December 31, 2008

Expected publication date: December 2009 (tentative)

Note: The recommended papers for the section are subject to final approval

by the Editor-in-Chief. Some papers may be published outside the special

section, at his discretion.
