Transactions on Automatic Control


The IEEE Control Systems Society publishes high-quality papers on the theory, design, and applications of control engineering. The Transactions is published monthly. Two types of contributions are regularly considered:
1) Full Papers - Presentation of significant research, development, or application of control concepts
2) Technical Notes and Correspondence - Brief technical notes, comments on published areas or established control topics, corrections to papers and notes published in the Transactions In addition, special papers (tutorials, surveys, and perspectives on the theory and applications of control systems topics) are solicited. Authors are urged to contact one of the Associate Editors at Large before submitting such papers.
Submitted manuscripts must be typewritten in English. All submitted manuscripts should be as concise as possible. 
We require a double-column version for both Full Papers and Technical Notes at the time of submission.   The standard Full Paper is 12 pages, (including bios and photos), but authors are allowed 4 extra pages over the 12 pages for Full Papers, with a $125.00 fee for each extra page.  Technical Notes are limited to 6 pages in TAC format and there are no exceptions to this rule.
Authors are asked to submit a single-column, double-spaced version of their paper as well, under Supplementary material. Note that the single-column format is requested on behalf of the reviewers for the ease of reviewing.
Full Papers of length exceeding 16-pages, 2-column, single-spaced, typed pages (including figures) will not be considered.   Technical Notes and Correspondence are limited to a 6-page, 2-column, single-spaced format.
Graphical Abstract Description and Specifications: To enhance the appearance of your article on IEEEXplore®, a Graphical Abstract can be displayed along with traditional text. The Graphical Abstract should provide a clear, visual summary of your articles’s findings by means of an image, animation, video, or audio clip.
