International Journal of Control Call for Papers

Special Issue: Identification and Control of Nonlinear Electro-Mechanical Systems

International Journal of Control

Guest Editors: Alexandre Janot, Hugues Garnier, Françoise Lamnabhi-Lagarrigue and Peter Young

Electro-mechanical systems are a ubiquitous feature of our present World. They affect almost every aspect of our life and we rely on them to service many of the day-to-day tasks with which we are confronted. Papers submitted for this special issue of the IJC can deal with the identification and control of any nonlinear electro-mechanical system. Here ‘identification’ is taken to mean the statistical identification and estimation of nonlinear mathematical models; and ‘control' can include the automatic control of nonlinear systems ranging from simple position control to the adaptive control of multivariable systems such as flexible joint robotic systems and electrical motors. However, preference will be given to contributed papers that have innovatory theoretical and practical contributions, with applications based on the identification and/or control of real systems.

Due to many requests, the submission deadline has been extended to 29 January 2016.
