The 6th annual IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (IEEE CASE), sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), will be held on August 21-24, 2010 in Marriott Eaton Centre Hotel, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. CASE is the flagship automation conference of the IEEE RAS. It constitutes the primary forum for cross-industry, multidisciplinary research in automation. The goal of the conference is to provide a broad coverage and dissemination of foundational research in automation among researchers, academics, and industry practitioners.
The theme of the conference is on the partnership for automation. With the rapid advances of processing, communication, and sensing technologies, the science and engineering of automation is finding expanding ranges of applications. This conference will aim to emphasize the partnership, connection, and synergy between industrial applications (e.g., semiconductor manufacturing, life science automation, aerospace automation, renewable energy, biomedical systems, and micro and nano systems) and algorithmic and analytic foundation (planning, scheduling, manipulation, sensing and localization, and application domains). Strong industrial participation is sought to highlight the diversity and commonalities of industrial automation needs and solutions. Special sessions will be organized in both thematic algorithmic and application areas.
Nomination THORLABS BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD: All primary, first-listed authors of a regular contributed paper who were students at the time of submission are eligible for the Thorlabs Best Student Paper Award. To be considered for the award, the paper must be nominated by the student’s advisor using the nomination form (1-page maximum, converted to pdf). The nomination must be submitted through PaperPlaza (From the PaperPlaza main page, click on "Submit a contribution to 2010 CASE" and then "Thorlabs Best Student Paper Nomination.") The deadline for nominations is April 20, 2010.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
The technical program of IEEE CASE will consist of plenary talks, paper presentations, special sessions, and workshops/tutorials on cutting edge and industry oriented topics, workshops and tutorials. Best Conference Paper, Best Application Paper, Best Student Paper, and Best Poster Paper awards will be selected by the CASE 2010 Awards Committee, based on the reviews received and the presentation in a special award finalist session. Submitted papers will be reviewed and organized by tracks:
Author(s) should submit full papers electronically in double column PDF format. All papers will be peer-reviewed, and the selected ones will be published in the CD-ROM Proceedings to be indexed by Elsevier databases Engineering Index (EI) and Compendex. Six pages are allowed per paper.CASE is the companion conference of the IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering. High quality CASE papers will be recommended for publication in the journal.
