On behalf of the organizing committee, we cordially invite you to submit papers for 5th International Conference on Advances in Control & Optimization of Dynamical Systems (ACODS-2018) during February 18-22, 2018. For submission of contributed papers, the extended deadline is Sept 30, 2017. After this, authors can also submit "Contributed Abstracts" until October 31, 2017, details about which can be found below.
The objective of the conference is to bring professional in the area of Control and optimization of Dynamic systems in the country and abroad together from the R & D and academia to share the advances in in control and optimization of dynamical systems. The conference will provide an international forum to discuss strategies towards sustained developmental activities in the area of Control and Optimization techniques and experimental research in Dynamical Systems. More about the conference can be found by visiting the conference website:
Papers dealing with all areas of control systems and dynamic optimization are welcome. For exclusive list of areas one may visit the conference website. The papers need to be written in the IFAC conference paper style and should be limited to 8 pages in the first submission. The final version, however, should be limited to 6 pages without additional over-length fee. The over-length fee beyond this limit will be 3000 INR (50 USD) per additional page.
To encourage special theme based sessions, the organizers encourage everyone to submit Invited Session Proposals, the deadline for which is September 30, 2017. Invited session proposals should be 1-2 page documents and should contain the title of the session, a brief abstract, invited author details (including their affiliations and contact email IDs) and their proposed paper titles. An invited session proposal should contain minimum 6 papers and maximum 8 papers. Accepted Session proposals will be intimated to the proposers by October 05, 2017. The authors of these invited sessions can then be able to submit their papers to these invited sessions anytime during October 06-20, 2017. Papers in these invited sessions, however, need to be full-length papers and will go through the regular review process. Contributed Abstract submissions will not be allowed under the invited session category.
To encourage industry participants and authors having less time to prepare their manuscripts, the 2018 ACODS is introducing a new "Contributed Abstract" category, where the authors can submit an extended abstract of their work, the limit for which is 2 pages both in the initial submission version as well as in the final version. The deadline for these submissions is October 31, 2017. The submission for these will open on October 01, 2017, i.e. immediately after the regular paper submission deadline. Note that these contributed abstracts, if accepted, will be part of the conference proceedings, but will not be uploaded to IFAC PoL. Also, these abstracts cannot be upgraded to general contributed paper category later during the final submission process.
In addition to the contributed, invited papers and contributed abstracts, there will be several tutorial sessions and attendees of this conference will get a chance to attend these tutorials free of charge. Ten plenary talks will also be delivered by eminent scientists and professors from across the globe in various areas of control systems, details of which will be available in the conference website soon. To encourage student participation, there will be several incentives for the students as well, which may include supporting their travel and partial discount for their stay at the conference venue.
