INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS

CEAI - Control Engineering and Applied Informatics journal is published every three months.
The material submitted for publication must be original, not published or being considered elsewhere. The selection criteria include originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results. It should clearly indicate the relationship of the work described to the most relevant previous work. Images should be of high quality.

Notes:
Responsibility for the contents of the paper rests upon the authors and not upon SRAIT, the editors or the publisher. Therefore, it is important that the technical content of the manuscript be carefully considered by the author. It is also important that the author agrees not to publish the same manuscript in another Journal without obtaining the consent of the Editor in Chief of this Journal.
