Call For Papers

CONTROLO 2016 will be the 12th conference in the successful series of conferences on automatic control sponsored by APCA, the Portuguese association of automatic control and national IFAC organization member.
This edition of the conference will be jointly organized by the School of Engineering, University of Minho, INESC-TEC and APCA and will be co-sponsored by IFAC.
The conference will be held September 14-16, 2016, at the campus of University of Minho, in Guimarães, a Portuguese world heritage city, 55 kilometers to the north of Porto.
The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes on Electrical Engineering, indexed by ISI Proceedings, EI-Compendex, SCOPUS, MetaPress, Springerlink.
CONTROLO 2016 will provide an excellent opportunity for presenting new results and to discuss the latest research and developments in the field of automatic control.
While the topics of CONTROLO 2016 should be as wide as possible, we would like CONTROLO 2016 to become a privileged place to affirm the understated contribution of control and automation in general to human well-being. Whenever relevant, prospective authors are strongly encouraged to stress such contribution in their reported research and technology developments, so that a coherent overall picture can emerge from the conference and this gains a distinctive character.
The social and cultural program of the conference will include:

– The welcome reception that will be held at archaeological Museu Martins Sarmento and will be preceded by a visit to the historic center of Guimarães.
– The gala dinner that will be held at Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães, a 18th century monastery magnificently rehabilitated and redesigned for tourism.
Submissions should be made through the Easychair submission system until February 5, 2016. Please follow this link to enter your submission or to create an Easychair account allowing for the submission your paper.
