SICE Annual Conference 2013, September 14 - 17, 2013 at Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan

About SICE 2013

The SICE Annual Conference 2013, an international conference on Instrumentation, Control, Information Technology and System Integration, will take place in Nagoya, Japan on September 14-17, 2013. This conference covers a wide range of fields from measurement and control to system analysis and design, from theory to application and from software to hardware. The official language of the conference is English. Novel interdisciplinary challenges transferable between plural fields are especially welcome. The technical program will include Plenary and Invited Talks, Tutorial Courses, and Workshops, as well as Oral and Interactive Sessions. All submissions must be written in English.

Plenary talks

The following plenary talks will be provided in SICE2013. (Title of talk is tentative.)

Paper Submission

The SICE Annual Conference 2013 accepts for review two types of submissions:

Regular paper: Full papers (6-8 pages in conference format) must be submitted for review. The accepted papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Position paper: Extended abstracts (2 pages of A4, 800-1000 words) must be submitted for review. This category is provided for authors who want to present a timely review of research, a case study, and so on. This type of paper will not be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Both types of papers will be included in the conference proceedings, and must be presented in English if accepted. Note that the copyright of the final camera-ready version of both types of papers belongs to the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE) of Japan.

Normal length for the final manuscript of the regular paper is six pages. Papers exceeding six pages may be submitted upon payment of overlength page charges. A maximum of two extra pages above six pages are permitted.

Normal length for the final manuscript of the position paper is two to six pages. Papers exceeding six pages may be submitted upon payment of overlength page charges. A maximum of two extra pages above six pages are permitted.

The detailed submission policy is found on SUBMISSION page.

Organized Session Submission

The goal of organized sessions is to provide focused discussions on a new topic or innovative applications of a new approach. Each session consists of 5-6 papers which will be reviewed via the normal review process (both regular and position papers can be included in a session). For session proposals, it is recommended to include a brief statement of the session focus, together with the submission of the individual papers. For further instruction, please see SUBMISSION page.

Workshops and Tutorials

Proposals for workshops or tutorials that address technical topics related to control, automation, and systems in general are welcome. We encourage such programs that will attract industrial members, and programs with highly anticipated level of interest, impact, creativity and technical background of presenters. Submission instructions will appear on TUTORIALS and WORKSHOPS page.
