Call For Papers

The 17th Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation, MED'09, will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece. Thessaloniki, the Cultural Capital of Europe 1997, is a beautiful port city on the Aegean Sea. It is the centre of the Greek North and the country' s second largest city. The conference venue is the seafront Makedonia Palace Hotel. King Cassander of Macedonia founded Thessaloniki in 315 B.C. and named the new city after his wife, Thessaloniki, the sister of Alexander the Great. Throughout its long history, the city has received several designations which are indicative of Thessaloniki's grandeur and glorious past: Capital of Macedonia, Joint-administrative capital of the Byzantine Empire. Thessaloniki has witnessed in the 2300 years of its life the might and glory of the Macedonians, the power of Rome and the grandeur of Byzantium. Its position and the contribution it has made have helped it play a major role in world history. Standing as undeniable proof of that role are its many antiquities, monuments and other impressive archaeological finds, representing every historical period. Within fifty kilometers of Thessaloniki are the beautiful beaches of Halkidiki and several sites of exceptional historical importance. There is Olympus, the mountain of the gods and seat of ancient Greek mythology. Athos, "the Holy Mountain," is a sanctuary for a unique monastic community, safeguarding orthodox Christian tradition and priceless historical treasures. Pella, the ancient capital of the Macedonian Kingdom, features the palace of Alexander the Great, with its exquisite mosaics. Vergina became known worldwide when golden urns containing the remains of Phillip II and his wife - the parents of Alexander the Great - were unearthed during excavation of royal Macedonian tombs. The numerous historical sites, as well as the plethora of natural beauty spots and endless emerald-green shores less than an hour away, establish Thessaloniki as a fascinating journey into art, civilization and relaxation. The conference, through its technical program, will provide a unique opportunity for the academic and industrial community to address new challenges, share solutions and discuss future research directions. A broad range of topics is proposed, following current trends of combining control/systems theory with software/communication technologies.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Adaptive control
