Call for Papers, MIC 6th Special Issue on Offshore Mechatronics

The SFI Offshore Mechatronics is organising its annual conference on June 20-21, 2023. In connection with this conference the journal MIC will organise the 6th special edition on offshore technology within the fields of Modeling, Identification and Control.

The fields of primary emphasis by MIC are:
• Modeling: General methodology of modeling including choice of structure, model reduction, numerical aspects, systems for computer aided modeling, etc.
• Identification: General methodology including system structure, identifiability, convergence, numerical aspects, systems for computer aided identification, etc.
• Control: General methodology including system specification, derivation of control strategies, analysis of system properties such as stability, sensitivity, etc.
• Applications: Demonstration, by simulations or experiments, of applications of theory within the above fields to engineering, biological, economic, ecological, social, geophysical, agricultural systems and others.

All papers published in MIC are peer-reviewed. All papers will receive a permanent DOI number and a printed edition will be handed out at the conference. MIC counts as publication level 1 in Norway.

Guest editors in this edition are Daniel Hagen (former PhD fellow in SFI Offshore Mechatronics) and Asle Pedersen (SFI Offshore Mechatronics).

Submit papers to: asle.pedersen@uia.no, daniel.hagen@uia.no with a cc to: editor@mic-journal.no. If you intend to submit, please let us know as soon as possible with a short description of the topic. This will be helpful in the planning of the review process. The submission deadline is April 21, 2023. Manuscripts must be prepared using the MIC template available at http://www.mic-journal.no/micauthors.asp

Publication accessibility and statistics
