The 10th IFAC Symposium on Control of Power and Energy Systems (CPES 2018) was held in Tokyo, Japan for 4-6 September 2018. Following the tradition, the IPC has selected the best papers for possible publication in the Control Engineering Practice (CEP). There were 118 papers presented at the CPES 2018, and 40 papers are invited for submission to the Special Issue on Power and Energy Systems.
Authors should take into account the scope of CEP: “CEP publishes papers which make significant contributions to the application of control techniques and are expected to contain practically relevant results based on profound theory. The CEP is an applications-oriented journal. Therefore those papers are published, which provide application-related information, stressing the relevance of the work in a practical industrial/applications context, with solid industrial examples rather than hypothetical ones. If only simulations have been used, these must be verified on models of real plants. The benefits must be made very clear and the new techniques must be compared and contrasted with results obtained using existing methods.” https://www.journals.elsevier.com/control-engineering-practice
Authors should be aware of the IFAC publication policy: “Papers submitted to IFAC journals with prior publication in any copy-righted conference proceedings must be substantially different from the conference publication. Authors should indicate in the cover letter in detail how the journal paper differs from the relevant conference paper or papers. In particular, the additional original contribution in the journal paper has to be pointed out explicitly. In the journal paper, the conference paper has to be cited and discussed as any other paper in the list of references.” https://www.elsevier.com/journals/control-engineering-practice/0967-0661?generatepdf=true
The authors should submit their papers to CEP as if it would be a regular paper. During this submission process, authors can choose the article type, and there they should tick the field “Special Issue: Power and Energy Systems” (default it will be “regular article”). Then the papers are processed as usual. Internally the special issue is treated as a Virtual Special Issue (VSI), meaning that if a paper is accepted it will be published in the next issue of CEP and does not have to wait for the last paper of the Special Issue to be accepted. However, in ScienceDirect the papers are all linked to one Virtual Special Issue with the Editorial at the time when the decision on the last paper is made.
