Audioslides - present your research

These are short, webcast-style presentations that can be shown next to your article on ScienceDirect. Audioslides gives authors the opportunity to present their research in their own words, helping readers to quickly understand what a paper is about and appreciate its relevance.

A selection of presentations published from our Computer Science Journals are shown in the Audioslides Gallery.

IFAC Journal of Systems and Control

Editor in Chief: Bob Bitmead

IFAC Journal of Systems & Control publishes high-quality research papers containing generalizable, extensible and transferable innovations across all aspects of the field of control and automation. The journal will only consider submitted papers consisting of significant previously unpublished material germane to applicable Systems Theory, its application, and cognate modeling and feedback-control-related areas of formulation, implementation, and analysis. The Journal is particularly interested in works exploring new areas at the boundary of systems and control where system modeling, estimation and feedback enable new viewpoints, areas of impact, and techniques. The Journal’s ambit broadly reflects the areas of interest of IFAC‘s Technical Board and dovetails with the other IFAC journals in seeking new areas of application and investigation for Systems and Control.

Online Social Networks and Media

Editor-in-Chief: Marco Conti

Online Social Networks and Media (OSNEM) are one of the most disruptive communication platforms of the last 15 years with high socio-economic value. Nowadays, OSNEM are regularly used by billions of users to interact, and they are key platforms for (among others) content and opinion dissemination, social and professional networking, recommendations, scouting, alerting, and political campaigns. The use of social technologies has become a sweeping cultural, social and economic phenomenon. Social platforms can exploit the "cognitive surplus" of our society for creating content and support collaboration.
