History of CASE

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of IEEE CASE 2005, we welcome you to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, for the first annual IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (IEEE CASE), sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. The inauguration of this annual event marks a milestone for the continuing growth of the Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), following its successful launch of the new Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE) in July 2024 The goal of this specific forum is for broad coverage and dissemination of foundational research on automation among researchers, academicians, and industry practitioners. The focus is on scientific methods for automating machines and systems operating in structured environments over long periods and the explicit structuring of environments. Under the visionary direction of the leaders of the Society and thanks to the tireless efforts of the Organizing Committee and the Program Committee, an excellent program has been assembled for the conference. It is absolutely delightful that more than 100 submissions were received for the first IEEE CASE. All these submissions were peer reviewed and 69 papers were accepted for oral presentations at the conference. The accepted papers are published in a CD-ROM containing the Conference Proceedings. The technical program of IEEE CASE consists of a full-day tutorial, two plenary talks, and paper presentations in three parallel tracks. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Organizing Committee for their dedication and hard work and the members of the Advisory Committee for their invaluable support and assistance. Special thanks go to the members of the Program Committee and our paper reviewers for their diligence and commitments in helping make a fair decision on each submission. We thank you for your active participation of the conference. We trust that you will find the first IEEE CASE in Edmonton stimulating, memorable and rewarding.

Welcome message of the first IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (IEEE CASE), held in 1-2 August 2005 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada,

The IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE) is the flagship automation conference of the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society (RAS) and constitutes the primary forum for cross-industry and multidisciplinary research in automation. Its goal is to provide broad coverage and dissemination of foundational research in automation among researchers and practitioners.

The upcoming event, the 2024 IEEE 20th International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE 2024), will mark the 20th occurrence of CASE, representing a significant milestone in the history of automation and robotics. Below is the list of previous CASE conferences.

We look forward to the continued success and advancements in the field of automation at CASE 2024.
