A fundamental, omnipresent feature of the global information age is that cyber-capabilities, e.g. computing, communication and control, are inherently embedded in numerous physical/engineered systems from the nano-world to large-scale systems-of-systems. Many scientific/technological challenges require intensive multidisciplinary studies, calling for new formulations, techniques and innovative solutions from a spectrum of communities in systems engineering/control/communications. IJSCC offers a vibrant discussion forum in this interdisciplinary area, especially communication systems augmented by control techniques and control systems whose components are interconnected via communication networks.


 Topics covered include

  • Information-based control systems
  • Distributed and cooperative control systems
  • Networked control systems (NCS)
  • Wired and wireless networks
  • Network control (admission/flow/congestion control, etc.)
  • Network scheduling and bandwidth allocation
  • Informatics in control and communication
  • Cyber-physical systems (CPSs)
  • Sensor and actuator networks
  • Multi-agent systems
  • Case studies and applications

More on this journal...

The main objectives of IJSCC are to form a vibrant international forum to report on the interdisciplinary developments of theoretical studies, modelling and design methods, computational algorithms and successful applications. Furthermore, it aims at establishing an effective channel of communication between systems engineers, control scientists and communication experts from industries, academe and research laboratories within this field. It particularly welcomes new theoretical results with practical applications.


IJSCC provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics and researchers working in the interdisciplinary field of systems, control and communications engineering to disseminate valuable knowledge and novel findings.


IJSCC publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, book reviews, notes and commentaries. Special Issues devoted to important and timely topics in integrated control and communication systems will occasionally be published.
