Dear Colleague,

The IEEE International Conference on Automation and Logistics (IEEE ICAL) is
the flagship conference of IEEE in automation and logistics. The 2009 annual
event, 2009 IEEE International Conference on Automation and Logistics (IEEE
ICAL 2009), will take place from August 5 to 7, 2009 in the historical city
of Shenyang, China. The theme of IEEE ICAL 2009 is 'Advanced Automation and
Logistics in the Information Age', reflecting the fast growing interests in
research, development and applications in the dynamic and exciting areas of
advanced intelligent automation and logistics.

Shenyang, the largest city in Northeast China, is the political, economic,
and cultural center of Liaoning Province. It is an important industrial base
and a celebrated old city with more than 2,000 years of history. It is the
birthplace of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
IEEE ICAL 2009 promises to be a great event, bringing together a group of
electrical, mechanical, industrial, systems, logistics, and computer
engineers, and offering a rich technical program emphasizing effective use
of the synergy in the areas of automation and logistics. IEEE ICAL 2009
conference invites high quality original research papers in all areas of
automation, logistics, their related areas and applications.

Detailed information about the conference is available at




The papers will be full-paper peer reviewed and all accepted papers will be
EI indexed and published on IEEE Xplore. In fact, all papers published in
the Proceedings of the IEEE ICAL 2008 Conference were EI Compendex
full-paper indexed in December of 2008, only three months after the
conference being held.

We would like to invite all the scholars and experts around the world to
contribute recent and original research results and to attend the conference
to be hosted at the great Chinese city of Shenyang. The conference paper
submission has started at the conference website. Proposals for special
sessions are welcome. Papers with original work in all aspects of Automation
and Logistics are invited.


Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers in IEEE double
