CDC 2010 : 49th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control
Conference Series : Conference on Decision and Control
Call For Papers
The 49th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control will be held Wednesday through Friday, December 15-17, 2010 at the Hilton Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia USA.
The CDC annually brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners in the field of automatic control to discuss the latest advancements of the discipline, shape its future directions, and promote its diffusion among the scientific community at large.
The 49th CDC will feature the presentation of contributed and invited papers, as well as tutorial sessions and workshops. In addition to the standard oral presentations, the conference will also feature interactive presentations and demonstrations, in order to encourage an interaction exchange with the audience. Topics for the interactive sessions will be selected specifically to benefit from the time for interaction and discussion that are not available in a typical lecture session, and the authors will be encouraged to make creative use of poster boards as well as hands-on computer simulations and demonstrations.
The CDC is hosted by the IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS), and is organized in cooperation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), the Japanese Society for Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE), and the European Union Control Association (EUCA).
Atlanta is one of the top five conference and convention cities in the US and is home to world-class restaurants, shopping, museums, cultural events and night life. The Hilton Atlanta is conveniently located within walking distance of many attractions, such as Centennial Olympic Park, the World of Coca-Cola, the CNN center, the Georgia Dome, Underground Atlanta, an historic shopping and entertainment center, and the Georgia Aquarium, which is the world’s largest aquarium. Atlanta International airport is only 11 km from downtown and is a major gateway for international flights; easily reached from most major cities in the world.
Call for Contributed Papers
Papers are invited in the form of regular manuscripts (allotted 6 Proceedings pages). Note that short manuscripts are not considered. Papers must conform to the submission policy, described below, requiring that all manuscripts be in 2- column format and meet strict page limits.
Call for Invited Sessions
Invited sessions consist of six papers presenting a unifying theme from a diversity of viewpoints. Proposals must clearly describe the motivation and relevance of the session. Proposals must be accompanied by full versions of each paper, which will be individually reviewed together with the proposal itself. Individual papers may be removed from a proposed session and replaced by appropriate contributed papers. In case an entire proposed session is rejected, selected papers may be accepted as contributed ones.
Call for Tutorial Sessions
Tutorial sessions addressing state-of-the-art control theory and advanced industrial applications are solicited. Panel discussions are strongly encouraged.
Call for Interactive Papers
Papers are invited in the form of interactive papers to be presented in a way that involves interaction with the viewers, including simulations, experimental setup, visual demonstrations, and virtual reality tools.
Call for Workshops and Tutorials
Workshops and tutorials to be held prior to the conference are solicited on all related topics. Proposals for workshops addressing novel control methodologies and nonstandard control applications are strongly encouraged.
