Scope

The purpose of the 9th International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and
Robotics (ICINCO) is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the
application of informatics to Control, Automation
and Robotics. Four simultaneous tracks will
be held, covering Intelligent Control Systems, Optimization, Robotics, Automation, Signal
Processing, Sensors, Systems Modelling and Control, and Industrial Engineering, Production and
Management.

Informatics app
lications are pervasive in many areas of Control, Automation and Robotics; This
conference intends to emphasize this connection, therefore, authors should highlight the benefits
of Information Technology (IT) in these areas. Ideas on how to solve problems
using IT, both in
R&D and industrial applications, are welcome. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems,
tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged.
Papers describing original work are invited in
any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers,
presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of
ICINCO, with an ISBN. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full
research reports and
work
-
in
-
progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster
sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case
-
studies and commercial presentations, as well as tutorials
dedicated to technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interes
ted in presenting
their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial, workshop or special
session are invited to contact the conference secretariat or visit the conference website.


Conference Areas

panded below but the sub
-
topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may
address one or more of the listed sub
-

Keynote Speakers

ICINCO 2012 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized
experts in their areas. Their names are not yet confirmed.

Paper Submission

Authors shoul
d submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and
spelling, using the on
-
line submission procedure. The initial submission must have between 3 to
13 pages otherwise it will be rejected without review. Please check the paper f
ormats page so
you may be aware of the accepted paper page limits.

The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference web ought to be used for all
submitted papers. The preferred submission format is the same as the camera
-
ready format.
Please

check and carefully follow the instructions and templates provided. Each paper should
clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or
environments to which it is applicable.


Papers that are out of the co
nference scope or contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected
without reviews. Please read
INSTICC's ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self
-
plagiarism
.

Remarks about the on
-
line submissio
n procedure
:

1. A "double
-
blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate that, the authors are
kindly requested to produce and provide the paper, WITHOUT any reference to any of the
authors. This means that is necessary to remove the authors pe
rsonal details, the
acknowledgements section and any reference that may disclose the authors identity.

LaTeX/PS/PDF/DOC/DOCX/RTF format are accepted.

2. The web submission procedure automatically sends an acknowledgement, by e
-
mail, to the
contact author
.

Paper submission types
:

Regular Paper Submission

A regular paper presents a work where the research is completed or almost finished. It does not
necessary means that the acceptance is as a full paper. It may be accepted as a "full paper" (30
min. oral p
resentation) , a "short paper" (20 min. oral presentation) or a "poster".


Position Paper Submission

A position paper presents an arguable opinion about an issue. The goal of a position paper is to
convince the audience that your opinion is valid and wort
h listening to, without the need to
present completed research work and/or validated results. It is, nevertheless, important to support
your argument with evidence to ensure the validity of your claims. A position paper may be a
short report and discussion

of ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific
research (bibliographic, experimental, theoretical, or other) focused on one of the conference
topic areas. The acceptance of a position paper is restricted to the categories of "sh
ort paper" or
"poster", i.e. a position paper is not a candidate to acceptance as "full paper".

Camera
-
ready
:

After the reviewing process is completed, the contact author (the author who submits the paper)
of each paper will be notified of the result, by

e
-
mail. The authors are required to follow the
reviews in order to improve their paper before the camera
-
ready submission.

Publications

All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the conference proceedings,
under an ISBN reference
, on paper and on CD
-
ROM support.

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library
(
http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/
).

SciTePre
ss is member of CrossRef (
http://www.crossref.org/
).

A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these
papers will be published by Springer
-
Verlag in a
LNEE Series book
.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings
Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).
