SupportPIN and Login Alias Information for Authors
To log in to the Automatica submission and review system authors, reviewers and editorial staff need a PIN (Personal Identification Number) and a password.
Automatica uses the people database of the IFAC PaperPlaza Conference system so if you have a PIN in this database then you may use this to log in to Automatica.
If you already have a PIN and password then follow the link Log in to log in.
If you do not remember your PIN or password or you are not sure if you have a PIN then follow the link PIN
Generally only authors who are new to the system will need to register a new PIN. We strongly recommend against registering multiple PINs.
If you use the update function of the PIN wizard you may set up a Login alias. You may use this to log in instead of your PIN. You may also change your password as you like. However, when you submit a paper you will still need the PIN.

If the editor who handles your paper requests you to revise and resubmit your paper then please do this. Only the corresponding author may submit the revised manuscript. The revised version of your paper must be resubmitted by the due date given in the letter you received from the editor. If this deadline is not met, unless an extension is requested from the editor prior to it, with a justification, and is granted, the paper will be considered rejected. Detailed guidelines for resubmission are given below.
If the editor who handles your paper invites you to prepare and submit your paper in final form then please do this. Only the corresponding author may submit the final version. The final version of your paper must be submitted by the due date given in the letter you received from the editor. Detailed guidelines for submission of the final version of your paper are given below.
The maximal size of the source files package is 10 MB
Prepare the biographical sketches (txt or MS Word only) and the authors' photographs (300 dpi, jpg preferred). This material is not required for Technical Communiques, Correspondence Items, Book and Software reviews. The sketches and photos should be packaged together in a single zip file. For best results send the original graphics files and do not include them in a Word file. Only files with the extension .zip or .doc are accepted. The maximal file size is 2 MB.

On your Access page, enter your Author workspace
If the previous version of your paper was submitted under the old system (before July 18, 2008) then you may not find your paper in your Author workspace. In this case you will need to use the Legacy login link on the Access page. The e-mail message that you received from the Editor has full instructions
Locate your paper on your Author workspace page and click on the link Submit final version
Complete the required steps
After submitting the final version you will receive an acknowledgement by e-mail
After the paper has been forwarded to the publishers you will be contacted by e-mail about the copyright form and the proofs
