Scope: IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics focuses on knowledge-based factory automation as a means to enhance industrial fabrication and manufacturing processes. This embraces a collection of techniques that use information analysis, manipulation, and distribution to achieve higher efficiency, effectiveness, reliability, and/or security within the industrial environment. The scope of the Transaction includes reporting, defining, providing a forum for discourse, and informing its readers about the latest developments in intelligent and computer control systems, robotics, factory communications and automation, flexible manufacturing, vision systems, and data acquisition and signal processing.

Authors must submit their manuscript electronically on the web to

Manuscripts are divided into 11 subject categories: "Bioengineering", "Communication, Networking & Broadcasting", "Components, Circuits, Devices & Systems", "Computing & Processing", "Engineered Materials, Dielectrics & Plasmas", "Fields, Waves & Electromagnetics", "Geoscience", "Power, Energy, & Industry Applications", "Robotics & Control Systems", "Signal Processing & Analysis", "Transportation"
