The twelfth annual IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (IEEE CASE 2016), sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), will be held in Fort Worth Texas, USA, August 21 to 24, 2016. IEEE CASE is the flagship automation conference of the IEEE RAS and constitutes the primary forum for cross-industry and multidisciplinary research in automation. Its goal is to provide a broad coverage and dissemination of foundational research in automation among researchers, academics, and practitioners.

We hope to see you all in Texas in August 2016!


The technical program of IEEE CASE 2016 will consist of tutorials/workshops, keynote/plenary speeches, automation forums, and oral presentations. Papers describing original work on abstractions, algorithms, theories, methodologies, and case studies are invited. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings, and submitted for inclusion into IEEEXplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. IEEE CASE is an offspring of the journal IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (www.ieee.org/publications/t-ase). The journal will publish a Special CASE Issue of top-rated papers.

CASE 2016 will be held in conjunction with the IEEE International Symposium on Assembly and Manufacturing (ISAM). The organizing committee of CASE and ISAM 2016 cordially invite you to submit full paper contributions through Paper Plaza January 7 through March 28, 2016. Proposals for workshops and tutorials are accepted through June 15 2016.

In addition, we are happy to announce that starting in 2016, the editorial board of Robotics and Automation Letters (RA-L) (www.ieee-ras.org/publications/ra-l) will accept submissions in conjunction to CASE/ISAM January 7 through March 1, 2016.
