The January 2016 issue of the IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and 
Engineering (T-ASE) includes Two Special Sections: one on Human-Centered 
Automation and one with selected papers from the 2014 Conference on 
Automation Science and Engineering (CASE), 10 Regular and 2 Short papers, 
and an Editorial on the T-ASE Impact Factor and news about a welcome 
reduction in page overlength charges:


The Guest Editors for the Special Section on Human-Centered Automation, M. 
M. K.  Oishi, D. Tilbury, and C. J. Tomlin, accepted 9 papers on Shared 
Autonomy, Haptic Feedback, Autonomous Driving, Robot-Assisted Surgery, and 
Flight Control. CASE 2014 was held in Taipei; the Guest Editor for that 
Special Section, F.-T. Cheng, selected 13 papers on topics from 
Manufacturing to Rehabilitation to Smart Appliances.  Topics of the the 
Regular and Short papers include High-Speed Trains to Micro-Assembly to 
design of a passive device that can reduce neck injuries.

The T-ASE Impact Factor for T-ASE is now 2.428, close to T-RO (2.431) and 
T-AC (2.779).  The average time from paper submission to first decision is 
under 3 months and the average time from submission to publication online 
is under 8 months.  Submissions have grown steadily from under 400 in 2011 
to well over 800 in 2015.
