CONTROL SCIENCES Aims & Scope
The journal addresses the needs of a wide community of specialists who deal with or are interested in control problems in technical, organizational, social, economic, environmental, biological and medical systems. Its audience also includes control and automation system developers, teachers, post-graduates and students.
It explains in clear, intelligible form the ideas and methods of control tasks solving based on modern modeling techniques subject to unstable environment, limited source information, conflicting goals, weak structurization and multiple objectives, i.e. the problems, which are most often faced in real world.
The journal focuses on system analysis and general-system mechanisms of large-scale objects’ operation, theory and techniques of choice and decision-making in complex systems, expert judgments and data analysis, large-scale system models, applied mathematical control models of various systems, prediction techniques and models, applied models and methods of management in organizations and economy, cash flow analysis models and techniques, and the problems of national and regional administration.
The difference from similar journals consists of uniformity scope of modern control sciences problems, interdisciplinary approach and making an emphasis on analysis of possibilities to put into practice published scientific results.
The journal publishes papers that present original scientific results in the fields of theoretical and practical control problems, reviews that characterize modern status of the main scientific problems, the most interesting scientific conferences reports, scientific discussion materials.
The journal sections are:
- Systems Analysis
- Mathematical Problems of Control
- Analysis and Design of Control Systems
- Information Technology in Control
- Control in Social and Economic Systems
- Control in Medical and Biological Systems
- Control of Complex Industrial Processes and Production
- Control of Moving Objects and Navigation
