Call for Papers for the Special Issues of Transactions of the Institute of Systems, Control and Information Engineers

---Recent Progress in Stochastic Systems Theory and Its Applications---

Stochastic systems theory has been widely recognized to constitute an important area in systems, control and information fields, with application areas that widely spread from engineering to science. ISCIE has been contributing to this academic field by sponsoring the annual symposium, SSS, continuously since 1968. SSS is now recognized as the traditional symposium with the oldest and longest academic history within ISCIE. We are happy to publish the special issue in the Transactions of ISCIE from the papers in the Proceedings of SSS'11, and the authors of SSS'11 proceedings papers are invited to submit full version of their papers.

Please note that the papers for the Proceedings of SSS'11 will NOT be automatically submitted to the Transactions of ISCIE. Moreover, the papers published in the special issue of the Transactions of ISCIE should contain some new or extended results, or revised contents from the papers in the Proceedings of SSS'11. Non-members of ISCIE can also submit their papers to this special issue.
