• Publishes original research articles, letters, case reports, reviews/mini-reviews and guest edited thematic issues on various topics related to Automation and Control Systems. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China

Aims and Scope

The Automation and Control Systems section of the journal Current Chinese Science publishes original research articles, letters, reviews/mini-reviews and guest-edited thematic issues in all areas of automation and control science. Articles may focus largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China.


This section is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of sub-fields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following automation and control science areas are of special interest to the readers of this journal:


  • • Adaptive and robust control
  • • Architectures and algorithms for control
  • • Artificial intelligence and intelligent control
  • • Automation engineering and applications
