The IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering

Automation plays an increasingly important role in the global economy
and in our daily lives. Engineers strive to combine automated devices
with mathematical and organizational tools to create complex systems
for a rapidly expanding range of applications and human activities. To
meet these challenges, the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society established a 
major archival journal on Automation Science and
Engineering to publish the 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.  Details at:

IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering:

2012: http://www.case2012.org/
Submission Deadline: Feb 25, 2012
Conference: Aug 20-24, Seoul, Korea
