The 26th IEEE International Conference on Automation and Computing (ICAC'20) will be held in University of Portsmouth on 3-5 September, 2020.

Conference Theme: System Intelligence through Automation and Computing

AIMS: The aims of the conference are to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, scholar s and students to exchange ideas and update technical knowledge, as well as to provide a platform where joint research programmes can be formulated for mutual benefit. The conference welcomes participations and contributions from those involved in both theoretical research and practical applications of all aspects of automation and computer science. In addition to parallel technical sessions, there will be plenary sessions.

SCOPE: The scope of the conference covers a broad spectrum of areas with multi-disciplinary interests in the fields of automation, control engineering, computing and information systems, ranging from fundamental research to real-world applications.

SUBMISSIONS: Papers should describe the original work with focused details. It should be no more than 6 pages (A4 paper) with IEEE conference paper format. The conference details and the paper template for ICAC’20 are available on the conference web site. The first page of each paper should include the title of the paper, an abstract with no more than 200 words, up to 5 key words, authors' name (s), complete mailing addresses, and email address for correspondence. Electronic form of submission, in Word or PDF, is acceptable and preferred. All the accepted conference papers will be held in IEEE X plore so EI in- dexed. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended article versions to special issues of International Journal of Automation and Computing (http://www.ijac.net) , Systems Science & Control Engineering (https://www.tandfonline.com/loi/tssc20) and IET Cognitive Computation and Systems (https://digital-library.theiet.org/journals/ccs). The ICAC’19 Proceedings has been published in IEEE Xplore (https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/conhome/8891805/proceeding) since November 2019.

BEST STUDENT PAPERS: Papers with the first author being PhD students are eligible for Best Student Paper Awards. The authors shall clearly indicate whether their papers are qualified for the awards in submission. The best papers will be assessed by a panel based on academic significance and presentation performance, and award certificates will be presented to the authors in the closing ceremony.
