The ROBIO organizers have been made aware that other, non-IEEE organizations, without our consent, have independently contacted our presenters for publication in their journals. It is up to the individual presenters to decide if they want to accept these invitations. However, ROBIO is NOT associated with other publications such as the Transactions on Control and Mechanical Systems.
