Advances in Systems Science and Applications (ASSA) is an international peer-reviewed open-source online academic journal focused at all major aspects of processes and systems analysis, modeling, simulation, and control, ranging from theoretical and methodological developments to a large variety of application areas. Survey articles and innovative results are also welcome.

The journal is aimed at the audience of scientists, engineers and researchers working in the framework of these problems. The journal should be a platform on which researchers will be able to communicate and discuss both their specialized issues and interdisciplinary problems to these areas.
