    Editor in Chief, IEEE Trans. on Control Systems Technology

The IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology publishes high-quality papers on technological advances in the design, realization, and operation of control systems. Submissions should emphasize novel contributions to the solution of control engineering problems arising in specific application areas. The Transactions is published bi-monthly. Three types of contributions are regularly considered: 

  1. Papers - Presentation of significant research, development, or application of control systems technology. 
  2. Brief Papers - Concise descriptions of a contribution to a specific aspect of design, realization, or operation of control systems technology. 
  3. Letters - Significant remarks of interest to control systems engineers, and comments on previously published papers. 

In addition, special papers (tutorials, surveys, and perspectives on the current trends in control systems technology) are solicited. Authors are encouraged to contact the Editor in Chief before submitting such papers. 

Papers and Brief Papers go through the same review process. Letters go through a shorter review process to facilitate rapid publication. Papers should be no longer than 32 double-spaced pages, single-column format, including figures. Brief Papers should be no longer than 16 double-spaced pages, single-column format, including figures. Letters should be no longer than 8 double-spaced pages, single-column format, including figures. Manuscripts exceeding the specified page limits, or clearly outside the scope of the Transactions will be returned without review.
