IJAAC addresses the evolution and realisation of the theory, algorithms, techniques, schemes and tools for any kind of automation and control platforms including macro, micro and nano scale machineries and systems, with emphasis on implications that state-of-the-art technology choices have on both the feasibility and practicability of the intended applications. This perspective acknowledges the complexity of the automation, instrumentation and process control methods and delineates itself as an interface between the theory and practice existing in parallel over diverse spheres.


 Topics covered include

  • Control theory and practice
  • Identification and modelling
  • Mechatronics
  • Application of soft computing
  • Real-time issues
  • Distributed control and remote monitoring
  • System integration
  • Fault detection and isolation (FDI)
  • Virtual instrumentation and control
  • Fieldbus technology and interfaces
  • Agriculture, environment, health applications
  • Industry, military, space applications

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJAAC are to establish an effective channel of communication between developers, system integrators, technocrats, academics and research institutions, and persons concerned with the complex role of automation and control solutions for the target systems. It addresses the evolution and realisation of the theory, algorithms, techniques, schemes and tools for platforms such as components, machines, processing, packaging, and material handling systems with emphasis on implications that the derived methodological choices have possible implementations. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in this field.


IJAAC provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers working in the field of automation and control system technology.


IJAAC publishes design, realisation and operation of automation and control related original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, tutorials, conference reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in automation and control technology infrastructure will occasionally be published.
