Most research and experiments in the fields of science, engineering and social studies have spent significant efforts to find rules from various complicated phenomena by observations, recorded data, logic derivations and so on. The rules are normally summarised as concise and quantitative expressions or "models". "Identification" provides mechanisms to establish the models and "control" provides mechanisms to improve the system's (represented by its model) performance. IJMIC has been set up to reflect the relevant generic studies in this area.
Topics covered include
- Dynamic modelling theories/techniques/computational algorithms
- Application examples of the above
- Novel and unconventional linear system modelling techniques
- System identification, particularly nonlinear system identification
- Model validation
- Various control techniques
- Nonlinear system control
- Mechatronic system modelling, identification and control
- Biological system modelling, identification and control
- Neural network, fuzzy logic enhanced modelling, identification and control
- Complementary medical system modelling and identification
- Wide range representative application examples
- Quantitative economic/financial and other social system modeling/identification
The intention of IJMIC is to provide an international forum to report latest developments from interdisciplinary theoretical studies, computational algorithm development and applications. It particularly welcomes those emerging methodologies and techniques which bridge theoretical studies and applications in all engineering and science branches. Novel quantitative social, economical/financial studies may be considered as well.
IJMIC provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, and researchers working in the field of science, technology and engineering, and possibly quantitative social and economical/financial studies, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJMIC publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, book reviews, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in nonlinear dynamic system modelling, identification and control will be occasionally published.

Detecting stress and anxiety in a pandemic
23 November, 2022
The COVID-19 pandemic led to a lot of people being forced to spend more time at home, often working from home, but also essentially isolated in their homes in order to reduce the risk of spreading or catching the disease. Computer games were perhaps a blessed relief from the potential boredom of enforced indoor life and no doubt many people enjoyed the experience. Gaming and reduce stress and anxiety. However, there is a flipside in that beyond a certain point the gaming itself can sometimes reverse that relief and induce stress and anxiety. Writing in the International Journal of Modelling, Identification and Control, a team from India investigated the emotional response to gaming to ascertain whether there is a positive or a negative net gain. They used a deep-learning algorithm to analyse and classify electroencephalographic signals from gamers while engaged in playing. The algorithm outperformed other approaches to accurately classifying the gamers' emotions. Indeed, the gaming scenario provides the stressors to allow them to train their algorithm to detect emotions and once trained it might in the future be used as a suppressed emotion detector in scenarious other than the computer gaming environment [...]More details...
