In addition to Scopus and WoS (Web of Science) indexing for all papers presented at the conference, selected papers will be published in international journals after peer review.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Prospective authors should ensure that the work is original and has been submitted for first publication in the respective scientific journal. All submitted manuscripts will be checked to avoid claims of plagiarism. In this context, overlaps with already published work, including full papers for the MESA Conference Proceedings, will respect the acceptable overlap percentages established by the respective journals.

The scientific journals that have currently confirmed their interest in proposing a special issue are listed below:

IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics

The IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics publishes high quality technical papers on technological advances in mechatronics. A primary purpose of the IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics is to have an archival publication which encompasses both theory and practice. Papers published in the IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics disclose significant new knowledge needed to implement intelligent mechatronics systems, from analysis and design through simulation and hardware and software implementation.

The covered technical areas included are: actuators and sensors, automotive systems, intelligent control, manufacturing, micro devices and opto-electronic systems, modeling and design, motion control, robotics, system integration, vibration and noise control, and other applications that involve novel and synergistic integration of information processing, electronics and mechanical devices with engineered and/or non-engineered systems.

Springer Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems

The Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems publishes peer-reviewed and original, invited, survey and review papers. These papers should promote and disseminate scientific knowledge and information in the fields of system theory, control systems, distributed systems, bioengineering, robotics and automation, human-robot interaction, human-machine interfaces and interaction, robot ethics, social and service robotics, medical robotics, mechatronics, unmanned systems, multi-robot teams and networked swarms, machine intelligence, learning, system autonomy, cyber physical systems, and other related areas in which cutting edge technologies have been developed and applied to model, design, build and test complex engineering and autonomous systems

A major focus of JINT is system autonomy, levels of autonomy and metrics to measure autonomy as integral ingredients of designing and building high-confidence systems. JINT is the only peer-reviewed journal putting emphasis on system ‘intelligence’ and ‘intelligent behavior’ as desirable attributes of system design, which subsequently leads to semi- or fully- autonomous systems that operate in dynamic and uncertain environments. Coupled with the quest for autonomy and autonomous operation of Unmanned Systems that has taken center stage in research and development, JINT welcomes archive and original papers on ‘design for autonomy’, as well as on efficient human-machine interfaces that reduce the operator workload.
