Overview

Top Research Topics at Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation?

  • Control theory (54.16%)
  • Control engineering (23.79%)
  • Control theory (16.24%)

The conference tackles a plethora of topics, such as Control theory, Control engineering, Control theory, Nonlinear system and Control system. Robust control, Linear system, Robustness (computer science), Adaptive control and Optimal control studies are all carried out as a component of the study in Control theory presented. In the conference, Robot, Control (management), Model predictive control and Actuator are investigated in conjunction with one another to address concerns in Control engineering research.

It focused on Robot research conducted under the discipline of Artificial intelligence. The Artificial intelligence study featured in the conference draws connections with the study of Pattern recognition. Control theory research presented is mostly focused on the subject of Fuzzy control system.

In addition to Nonlinear system research, it aims to explore topics under Observer (quantum physics) and Mathematical optimization. Control system research discussed connects with the study of Automatic control.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • A novel binary particle swarm optimization (265 citations)
  • A Survey of Control Allocation Methods for Ships and Underwater Vehicles (144 citations)
  • A revised look at numerical differentiation with an application to nonlinear feedback control (137 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation:

The most cited publications generally zeroe in on subjects such as Control theory, Control engineering, Control system, Control theory and Nonlinear system. Control theory research in the published papers connects with the study of Model predictive control. Aside from discussions in Control engineering, the most cited papers also deal with the subject of Mobile robot which intersects with Motion planning and Computer vision disciplines.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Control theory
  • Statistics

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The primary areas of discussion in the conference are Control theory, Control engineering, Control theory, Nonlinear system and Robustness (computer science). Control system, Trajectory, Transfer function, Linear system and Lyapunov function are among the concentrations of Control theory that garnered much attention in it. While Linear system is the key highlight in Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation, it also covered some subjects on Mathematical optimization and Applied mathematics.

Issues in Control engineering were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Control (management), Model predictive control, Process control and Actuator. The work on Control theory tackled in the conference brings together disciplines like Tracking (particle physics) and Fuzzy logic. The in-depth study on Nonlinear system also explores topics in the intersecting field of Observer (quantum physics).

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • A review on multi-robot systems categorised by application domain (21 citations)
  • A Nonlinear Model Predictive Control scheme for cooperative manipulation with singularity and collision avoidance (20 citations)
  • On the optimization of energy storage system placement for protecting power transmission grids against dynamic load altering attacks (12 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2017 edition, 7.69% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 18.52% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 11.11% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 23.61% of all publications and 46.76% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
